Subject: Pat Robertson and the Road Map For Peace - does anyone have more information about this. (more)
In response -
The American public base their opinions on the news that is broadcast into their living rooms. Any media coverage of the chaos in Iraq such as US troops being killed, it presented not as some huge uprising of the Iraqi people or widespread discontent that we need concern ourselves with, but as a few leftovers from Saddam's army in a "stronghold" for Saddam's political party. Just a few crackpot militants from what I've seen on TV which hasn't been very much.
The ONLY stories that were being covered yesterday on US news were Martha Stewart - Martha Stewart and MORE Martha Stewart. Coverage of her indictment DOMINATED the news - along with brief mentions of sammy sousa's corked bat and a life report or two from Israel about the Palestine/Israel roadmap for peace. SPEAKING OF ROADMAP - I saw this on the 700 Club...READ THIS!
I was flipping thru TV channels yesterday morning and saw a "reporter" in Israel talking about the Road map for Peace and all of a sudden there was Pat Robertson - and I was like - WTF?? haha
So it turns out it was the 700 club or whatever it's called - that religious show that has a lot of fake news on it.
Well, Pat asked the "reporter" a few questions about President Bush's roadmap and the reporter responded by quoting Bible verses!! hahaaaa. I swear I am not making this up. The reporter quoted Bible verses throughout his live, on-the-scene "news report".
Anyway - it seemed to me that Pat Robertson said that President Bush's roadmap goes directly against the Word of God in the Bible. He asked the reporter about some hills - and the reporter quoted some Bible verses that mentioned a couple of cities and some hills and Pat said - isn't that all part of the land that will be included in the new State of Palestine and the reporter said, you're right Pat. Those lands that the Bible specifically says belong to the children of Israel would be given to Palestine, and that directly contradicts the Divine Will of God.
I almost fell over!! What the heck!!
So then Pat said directly to the camera - to the Christian viewers at home - "pray for Israel, pray for the will of God as prophesised (sp?) in the Holy Bible, and PRAY FOR PRESIDENT BUSH (as in pray for his immortal soul because he is purposely going against the Will of God according to the Holy Bible) - that's the way it seemed to me. I can't remember his exact words but it seemed like he was saying President Bush is going to go to Hell if he insists on this Road Map to Peace plan that he is pushing.
Pat Robertson came right out and said President Bush is going against the Will of God and going against the teachings of the Holy Bible with this Road Map Peace Plan.
Pat Robertson seemed to be pitting President Bush's Road Map up against GOD'S ROAD MAP, THE HOLY BIBLE.
It was almost like good versus evil - the devil versus God kind of comparison - Bush's Road Map versus the Bible.
Now, if the Christian coalition turned against Bush because of his Mideast peace plans, maybe it would cost him the election, but as Dano pointed out, they don't have an alternative candidate to vote for so I dont see that happening. He won't lose the base.
In any case, I thought it was pretty interesting to know that our fundamentalist in chief actually drew up a road map peace plan that goes directly against the Bible (according to Pat Robertson.)
That goes directly against my own opinion that Bush bases his political policies on his religious beliefs.
Anyone have any information about this?
