Robertson: God says Seattle is fuct

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP)--In another in a seemingly endless series of bizarre pronouncements, religious broadcaster and noted asshole Pat (Blood Diamond) Robertson says God told him storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.

Robertson has made these startlingly deranged predictions at least four times in the past two weeks on his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded as a tax dodge.

Robertson said the revelations about this year's weather came to him while he was submitting to the ritual laying-on of hands by volunteer Christian showgirls during his annual personal prayer retreat in January.

"If I heard the Lord right--and he usually speaks very slowly and clearly in a loud voice with just the slightest hint of a Southern accent--the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8. On Wednesday, he added, "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest, to punish all the Sodomites and feminists there."

Robertson has come under intense criticism in recent months for suggesting that American agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip, and that diamonds really are a girl's best friend.
