I don't know if God told Robertson if gays and lesbians are to blame, but The Rev. Pat has jumped on the global warming bandwagon to tell those who have ears to hear in the viewing audience of the 700 Club that "if I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms."
Putting himself on the same level as the Ancient Greeks who saw lightning and invented Zeus, Robertson takes advantage of the growing certainty that global warming augments the probability of extreme weather occurrences to add God to the equation. Very clever!
But his "prophecy" lacks a Jeremiad. If I were his communications director, I'd have suggested: "If I heard the Lord right about 2006, unless we change our wicked and debauched ways and curtail our carbon emissions, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms."
