have no fear, pat robertson is here!
Don't you be worrying about old Isabel anymore.
The Reverend Pat Robertson, whose Christian Broadcasting Network could be hit by Hurricane Isabel, has asked God to turn the storm away from Virginia Beach and the U-S East Coast.
On today's broadcast of "The 700 Club," Robertson gave God credit for turning past hurricanes away in response to prayer.
Praying "in the name of Jesus," Robertson said he believes that God will put up "a wall of protection."
He added that he and those praying with him "command this storm to go out into the sea and to pass land harmlessly."
At least this time he's wishing them out to sea. The other times he tried this tactic he just sent the hurricanes to other states.
Robertson claims to have used the power of prayer to steer hurricanes away from his Virginia Beach, Virginia headquarters. He took credit for steering the course in 1985 of Hurricane Gloria, which caused millions of dollars of destruction in many states along the east coast. He made a similar claim about another destructive storm, Hurricane Felix, in 1995.
Don't hold too much stock in Robertson's power of prayer. He's still waiting for those liberal judges to die.
