Welcome to The 700 Club Horror Chiller Theater

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia (AP) -- Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday that God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would cause a "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

It might be a rain of canned hams. Or perhaps an infestation of rabid garden gnomes. The Lord works in mysterious ways--and He can be maddeningly vague.
Robertson said God told him about the impending tragedy during a recent prayer retreat. ...

How do you even slip that into a conversation? "Could you pass the milk? Oh, by the way, Pat, you know your gym membership that comes due in September? Don't bother re-upping. I'm not going to say something nuclear's going to happen. Hey, I'm not even going to say rabid garden gnomes are involved. Just save your money."
In May, Robertson said God told him that storms and possibly a tsunami were to crash into America's coastline in 2006.

Even though the U.S. was not hit with a tsunami, Robertson on Tuesday cited last spring's heavy rains and flooding in New England as partly fulfilling the prediction.

What??? Man, using criteria like that, even Criswell would have a more accurate record.

Funniest line in your post "...nd He can be maddeningly vague."

Excellent post.

P.S. Frogs, if anything it will be frogs.

If you were God, would you talk to Pat Robertson?
