The Reverend Pat Robertson says Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's massive stroke could be God's punishment for giving up Israeli territory. This is so inappropriate. At a time of national crisis for Israel and great anxiety for all who have loved or revered this great leader, why could he not have simply expressed his sympathy or offered his prayers. Instead, his rabid Dispensationalism and desire for the limelight has again brought reproach on the Name.
Coming on the heels of Robertson's call for the assasination of the president of Venezuela, this comment shows that Robertson's judgment is impaired and his board of directors should consider forcing him into retirement. It is time for this snarling dog to be muzzled.
