Pat Robertson: God says U.S. will accept socialism
Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, announced at his staff's annual prayer retreat that God told him Americans would embrace socialism in 2009 "in order to relieve their pain" and that the economy would rebound under an Obama administration.
"The Lord said the economy of your nation will recover," Robertson told a group assembled at Founders Inn on the campus of Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., a university Robertson founded.
Speaking of mental misfits, these statements by Robertson are arguably worse than the statist economic policies he claims to fear: "The Lord said the economy of your nation will recover."
"The Lord said the dollar is going to go down dramatically ... If I'm hearing him right..."
God said all this? Where? Certainly not in the Scriptures. I think Robertson's obvious belief in private revelation (like Sarah Palin's) is very destructive, the more so because it is widely shared. It brings discredit upon the visible church (as if there aren't enough problems here already), and has clear hazards for civil governance, as Wm. McKinley demonstrated.
"America began to embrace socialism way back in the mid 1800's"
Correction: that was more plausibly the early 1900's during the T. Roosevelt & Wilson administrations. Wilson (a Southern Presbyterian) during WW1 proved to be the centralizing tyrant that Lincoln was/is only imagined to be by "Lost Cause" believers. It was Wilson's wartime example that inspired New Dealers.
The 1860 Repub party was not socialistic; it was Whig + abolitionism. Rebel VP Alexander Stephens, like Lincoln, was originally a Whig until the slavery issue took center stage.
Now that is funny! America began to embrace socialism way back in the mid 1800's. Either God is really slow or Pat Robertson is a liar.
I also had to mention that Gil Rugh was my pastor for 9 years and as much as I disagree with some of his beliefs I learned a great deal from him and I wish there were more pastors with even half his courage to go out on a limb for what they believe to be true.
Ah, puritanbooks, Gil can't save the U.S.A! No way that he can, he can't even save a single person!

Alex Jones did no such thing. You give him waaaaayyyyy too much credit, *[URL=http://www.therazor.org/images/tinfoil_hat_girl.jpg]]]Banned[/URL]* _
Alex Jones predicted something so general that even *John UK* could have predicted it!

Yes, Alex Jones DOES mention the World Trade Centers in this video. NO! he does NOT link them to a FUTURE attack. He's talking about the 1993 attack on the towers by al Qaeda (even though he thinks it was done by the US government...)
All he says is that Bin Laden will be blamed. (Which is something even *Tinfoil hat not needed* could have predicted due to the fact that Bin Laden was resposible for:
-The 1992 Attack on the Gold Mihor Hotel in Yemen -The 1993 Attack on the World Trade Centers -A plot to blow up airliners over the Pacific in 1993 -The bombing at a U.S. military facility in Riyadh -The 1996 Khobar Towers Bombing -The 1998 Embassy Bombings -A plot to destroy the USS Sullivans -The 2000 bombing of the USS Cole)
ALL before Jones made his ... uh ... "prediction!"

He claims he gets his predictions straight from God -- and then they turn out to be 80 percent wrong.
Texe and Alex don't do that. They just tell us the way it looks like things are headed, and so they are 10 years of ahead of things.
Alex predicted 9/11 two months before it happened, but not because he got a vision; rather, it was because he saw the media hyping up bin Laden as the terrorist getting ready for an attack, the same footage shown constantly, on all the channels. So he knew the govt was up to something, and warned them on his show, I know you are planning on attacking the Twin Towers and blaming it on bin Laden, and don't do it.
Nothing psychic, just being aware of what's going on.
Texe Marrs is just as good at predicting what's coming.
"Conservative Christian leader" Pat Robertson exemplifies the Matrix, that nothing is as it seems. Acting as gatekeeper, he ensured in 20 years of owning the Family Channel that not once was the truth of abortion presented, nor one Creation film offered as an alternative to TV's nonstop atheistic evolution propaganda nature films. Robertson publicly supports China's one-child policy and now tells us socialism will save America.
In this world the rich and powerful make a deal with the devil, the god of this world. Satan took Jesus to the mountain and offered him the world if he'd bow his knee. Robertson, Obama, our politicians, corporates have all bowed.
Jesus said he'd rather we be hot or cold, and will vomit out the lukewarm. Devil worshippers are hot for Satan, very religious, very spiritual, keenly aware of the source of their spiritual power, in tune with their god, and get renewed energy by honoring the high holidays of Satan.
They are many, and laugh at how easy it is to fool the rest of us. Illuminists get away w/ it because normal people can't conceive of such evil, of sacrificing children to Satan, worshipping a stone idol of Molech, being obsessed w/ numbers, ley lines, sacred geometry, pyramids and obelisks, or that anybody could be such frauds and liars.

You got that right ! But I guess it is just a coincidence ! Certainly not organized - dare I use the "C" word ?
