Blood is Thicker than a False Prophet

My good people for the last two days, I’ve been giving my full attention to the plight of Haiti. As I watched it on the news, tears flowed for my people, and I had a flashback of yet again of my people who had suffered in another devastating natural disaster in the past called Katrina. What comes to my mind regarding both natural disasters that involved people of color was the lack of compassion from those on the RIGHT. In fact their response was cold-hearted and callous. None other than Pat Robertson the false prophet again has chosen to besiege us with yet another word from his devilish imagination condemning the victims and slandering those less fortunate for political reasons as did another devil’s imp—Rush the racist, drug addict.

Pat has a bad habit of proclaiming that victims of natural disasters are cursed. The thing is it seems that the only time he hears a word of damnation from his god of hate and not from the real God of mercy, compassion, and love for the poor, is when it involves politics in favor of the rightwing party. However, some of those victims he chooses to play political prophecy with blood happen to flow through my veins and I don’t take too kindly to him playing a political game at their expense, especially, when it involves devastating and deadly circumstances beyond their control. You see, blood is thicker than a false Prophet. I am tempted to write Pat a letter on behalf of the people of Haiti and tell him to kiss our black buttocks. However, I am not going to do that. Naaah! What Pat should be doing is giving some serious thought concerning his own soul.

What I’d like to know is if that voice Pat hears gave him a word on some of his business associates. Did that voice tell him to make Christianity out of a Corporation? Did that voice speak to him and tell him to support people who harbor terrorist too?

“Robertson was criticized for failing to mention in his broadcasts his $8,000,000 (USD) investment in a Liberian gold mine. Taylor had been indicted by the United Nations for war crimes at the time of Robertson's support.”

“Prosecutors also said that Taylor had harbored members of Al Qaeda responsible for the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. According to Robertson, the Liberian gold mine Freedom Gold was intended to help pay for humanitarian and evangelical efforts in Liberia, when in fact the company was allowed to fail leaving many debts both in Liberia and in the international mining service sector.” ~~Wikipedia~~

Pat always comes up with condemning words involving natural disasters that are tied to curses, especially, when it involves people of color. While claiming to be doing the Lord’s work, he takes out the time for one of his favorite pastimes, if you want to call it that:

“In April 2002, Robertson acknowledged owning a race horse, named "Mr. Pat." He told a New York Times reporter that his interest in the horse was based purely on its aesthetics. "I don't bet and I don't gamble. I just enjoy watching horses running and performing." Harder to explain was why he spent $520,000 on the horse and intended it to compete at the track.” ~~Wikipedia~~

These are some of the many unforgettable moments of words that the voice he hears has given him.

Granny, I love you like a play grandma and I hope that all of your loved ones in Hati are found and will be well.

Pat Robinson needs to retire immediately because he doesn't have anything sane or positive to say about such situations.

Pat, the Christian, should be reminded of one of Jesus' statements: "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

What preceded this statement:
"For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me."

Pat justifies the suffering of Haitians by saying they brought it upon themselves. They made a pact with the devil.

Some Repubs are quick to declare that our God is better than the Islamic God, and that our Bible better than the Koran.

Yet, when the time comes to put up, or shut up, they choose to present to the world, by virtue of their actions, and their words, a God, not of love, but of vengeance, disdain for the poor, and the helpless, and a supporter of the rich and those on the Right.

As a nation, our response has been superlative, and the American people's generosity more Christian than some of its leaders, and more compassionate than many on the Right.

If the behavior of Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, and some others on the Right is what happens to you when you embrace conservative values, then I'm glad I'm a liberal, and a progressive, if I were to identify myself on a political scale from Right to Left.

Sister Granny... in all my years I have never seen a period in time whereby men have devoted ALL their time to bringing down a president. About two years ago I felt that Mr. Obama (at that time) would be confronted with layers of men that he would have to confront. I thought it would last during the election period BUTTT. Anyway, dont the US have seismic monitors to instantly detect tremors? I quess I will float thru the net to find out. I don't sit at the computers for long-- I still have not put the first word down at my blog-major concern now is to stay calm and do the things I can. I will continue to pray and I so dearly wanted to go to Haiti to aid in a medical capacity or something.
