What’s it good for, Pat?
Yet again, as reluctant as I am to quote “scripture”, I find it sometimes necessary to correct the record and point out what seem to be a couple of glaring mistakes:
“For those who are screaming blood for the Saudis — look, these people are key allies,” he declared on the show October 15, and told viewers to bear in mind that “we’ve got an arms deal that everybody wanted a piece of…it’ll be a lot of jobs, a lot of money come to our coffers. It’s not something you want to blow up willy-nilly.” — erstwhile follower of Christ & Minion of Evil, Pat Robertson
Funny, I must have somehow gotten things rather mixed-up in my understanding. Anybody else get it a lil’ twisted?
First the wind up:
“ And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” — the opening act, Isaiah 2:4
Maybe Micah is the hypeman?
“And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” — (potential plagarist?) Micah 2:4
Remarkably similar, no?
And then the pitch:
“ But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” — Jesus (allegedly) Matthew 5:30
“And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” (you guessed it, Jesus!)Matthew 5:41
“ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” Whoopsie! — Yep, Jesus again. Matthew 5:43–44
“But wait!” you manage to say with a straight (and clueless) face. “What about this ‘caravan’ heading to invade our undefended borders”?
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” — You don’t say? Yep. Jesus again, Matthew 25:31–36
Yeah, that’s what that a certain Middle-Eastern man said. I doubt there are any Middle-Easterners in that group of refuges. If you still somehow believe (against any reasonable odds) there are some in that caravan, maybe they will be the same kind of wise teacher we could use a few more of.
But wait . . .

Here comes the bumper music:
“War, huh, good god
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
Oh, war, I despise
’Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears to thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives”
War! — music & lyrics by Barret Strong & Norman Whitfield
