Televangelist Pat Robertson has embarrassed evangelicals … again. Robertson said yesterday Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke was God’s payback for the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza: “He was dividing God’s land, and I would say, ‘Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the [European Union], the United Nations or the United States of America. God says, ‘This land belongs to me, and you’d better leave it alone.”
What will Robertson say when he is the one suffering the stroke?
