Pat Robertson has always been one of our favorite figures here at Common Sense Conspiracy. Why? Because you can always count on Pat in a pinch to say something completely off-the-wall that will be entertaining and controversial at the same time. In the past, he’s done some pretty good ones…including calling for the assassination of Hugo Chavez and claiming that natural disasters in Haiti are the result of God’s punishments being handed down. Now, he weighs in on a slightly more frivolous matter, but still manages to raise eyebrows.
Robertson used his unbelievably long-running religious program, The 700 Club, to get involved in all the fun with the Tim Tebow sweepstakes. He says that the Denver Broncos are “tempting fate” by trading off Tim and going for future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning as their man.
“And you just ask yourself. OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.”
Pat prefaced this by listing all of Tebow’s accomplishments in Denver. Now, he seems to think that maybe God has a little revenge in store for those that shunned the Golden Boy.
In his defense, old Pat does seem to have toned down his rhetoric a bit. He didn’t outright proclaim God’s vengeance this time, he just insinuated that it might happen.
Small steps, Pat. Small steps.
