Whole Lotta Smitin' Goin' On (Or--Is Pat Robertson SATAN??)
Is Pat Robertson Satan?
I mean, he's certainly Satanic.
Here's a guy who says he's a preacher of the Lord, but he's breaking God's Ninth Commandment, advocating the breaking of God's Sixth Commandment (See "Robertson Calls For Chavez Murder: God's Sixth Commandment Not Good Enough for Anti-Christ-ist Crackpot Right"), fervently praying for Supreme Court Justices to drop dead, advocating the breaking of the Golden Rule while ignoring if not contravening virtually all of the actual teachings of the actual Jesus Christ.
He's the guy who memorably said: "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
"Rev." Robertson also points out that "Presbyterians are the spirit of the Anti-Christ."
So, ok, ok, ok, he's Satanic, but is he actually Satan?
This urgent, burning question arises due to Pat Robertson's recent prophetic-wannabe comments to the citizens of Dover, Pennsylvania.
'On today’s 700 Club, Rev. Pat Robertson took the opportunity to strongly rebuke voters in Dover, PA who removed from office school board members who supported teaching faith-based 'intelligent design' and instead elected Democrats who opposed bringing up the possibility of a Creator in the school system’s science curriculum.
Rev. Robertson warned the people of Dover that God might forsake the town because of the vote . . . [saying], "I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover. If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city. And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because he might not be there.'"
So he's claiming to know what God's gonna do, because God, I guess, tells him.
But, as I recently wrote to Rev. Robertson--what if that voice in his head belongs to--Satan?
Don't you think God might just get pissed off enough to smite this guy, big-time? Squash him down like a bug?
Or, forget about Pat hearing the voice of Satan and then doing his bidding, worse yet, what if "Pat Robertson" is actually Old Scratch, Beelzebub himself--in human drag?
We need to work this out, boys and girls. Discuss. Ponder. Vote!

Is Pat Robertson--Satan?
Or is he--the Anti-Christ?
Reference re the Anti-Christ:
"Many deceivers have gone out into the world; they do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist (2 John 1:7, ESV.)"
Here it seems to describe any false teacher or false prophet or corrupter of the Christian faith, but sometimes also seems to indicate a specific person or a single spirit of deception that motivates false teaching, and whose presence is a sign of the end times. However, in popular understanding, many Christians identify this particular Antichrist with the man of sin or son of perdition mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2, and with several figures in the Book of Revelation including the Dragon, the Beast, the False Prophet, and the Whore of Babylon. The Antichrist is variously understood to be a group or organization, such as a consummately evil system of government or a false religion; or, more commonly, as an individual, such as an evil government leader, a religious leader that sets up false worship in place of the worship of Christ, the incarnation of Satan, a son of Satan, or a human being under the dominion of Satan."
