Pat Robertson, renowned disc jockey on The 700 Club, and crusader to do away with The Department of Education, recently attempted to explain why more miracles seem to happen for “simple, humble” foreigners than for Americans.
His answer suggested that too much education was an impediment to receiving a miracle from God. He stated “... it has to do with evolution...Those people overseas didn't go to Ivy League schools,” he said...”That's what God's looking for. That's why they have miracles.”
When asked if God only performs miracles for stupid people, Smokey Robinson, lead singer of The Miracles, chuckled and broke into ‘Tears of a Clown’:
“Now there's some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown, when there's no one around
Uh hum, oh yeah baby”
And "the beat goes on" the relentless persecution and defamation of people of faith by the educated elite on the left.
But be of good cheer my friends (and I know it is sometimes hard to remember).
Jesus taught us that:
"People will say bad things against you and hurt you.
They will lie and say all kinds of evil things against you because you follow me.
But when people do those things to you, know that God will bless you.
Be happy and glad. You have a great reward waiting for you in heaven.
People did those same bad things to the prophets that lived before you."
So as someone who has received Jesus into my heart, I choose to wear the persecution of those on the left like a badge of honor and I thank God every day for the chance to be both light and salt during my time.
dont think it was a persecution on less educated people more of how the religious charlatans prey on those less educated. Pat Robertson is just that. The man really has no morals and will burn in hell if there is such a thing. He will be judged much worse than the meek. Nothing wrong with faith but religion was instituted for fear and fear alone. Why is the god of the old testament a vengeful god while the god in the new a all loving god. Is there 2 of them?? Did he have a change of heart??? Why would a god create man only to destroy them. As a father would you kill your children because you didnt like what they were doing or because they were not bowing down to you in reverence???
PAT R is a fraud and could only care about his almighty dollar!!!!!!!!!!
"Wise guys do seem to have a difficult time with truth."
Or, and I'm just throwing this out here, the smart people have it right and the dumb people are the ones who have a difficult time with truth. Gullible, easily manipulated, unclear and inconsistent thinkers who believe whatever email forward ends up in their inbox. Seeing a pattern here?
