    Pat say? Overseas they’re simple, humble. You tell them God loves them, and they say ‘ok, he loves me’. You say ‘God will do miracles’ and they say ‘okay, we believe him.’ And that’s what God’s looking for, that’s why they have miracles.”

      And mothers all over Africa pray for the lives of their children, and they die anyway.  

      Here's the thing that Pat Robertson can't explain: Why does God allow babies to die?  He will tell me that it's about original sin, but I have no frickin' idea what he's talking about.  He will say it's part of God's plan, or tell me to read the Book of Job. None of that makes any sense at all.

      The truth is, Pat has no explanation for evil in the world. He's got nothin'. On some level, even he probably knows that, but his scam brings in money and it's hard to stop once you are making a living that way.

      I'm thinking a nice puppy.

      He should definitely should avoid the cats.

      I voted for the human beings.
