Pat Robertson: ‘God Laughed at Pro-Climate Change Democrats By Knocking Out DC’s Power’

On Wednesday, wind gusts of nearly 50 mph caused the lights outside of the Capitol building to go dark. The office of the Architect of the Capitol reported that extreme winds had temporarily caused the exterior lights of the Capitol building to go out, a problem that was quickly remedied and did not impact the building’s interior.

Today on the the 700 Club, however, televangelist Pat Robertson explained that what was experienced in the nation’s capitol yesterday was no ordinary March windstorm or temporary power failure. God, he demanded, was using the extreme weather to laugh at the Democrats for staying up late to talk about climate change.

Robertson is referring to the fact Democratic Senators pulled an all-nighter on the Senate floor on Monday discuss climate change, a move decried by both Republicans and climate change deniers like Robertson as being a political stunt.

According to Robertson, though, not only fellow Republicans were in on the mocking and finger pointing. God was also amused at the Democrat’s folly.

“Do you think God has a sense of humor? Well, I think he does,” Robertson said at the start of his 700 Club broadcast today. “Let me tell you what happened. In the United States Capitol, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and the Democrats had an all night marathon advancing global warming.”

He added that during the all-nighter, the Democrats advised Americans that they should be in fear of global warming, something Robertson has routinely stated is not the case.

In order to show the Democrats the error of their ways, Robertson continued, God “dropped the temperature 40 degrees, sent so much wind that it that it knocked out the lights in the Capitol dome for the first time in years,” adding with glee,“and it’s still cold!”

“Isn’t that fun? God has a sense of humor,” the televangelist concluded, laughing  heartily at God’s alleged anti-climate change prank.

    Why are people limited by their experience in America? They believe if it’s happening in America, then it’s happening in the world. While America was suffering from a “polar vortex”, the folks south of the equator wee suffering their hottest winter/spring ever. America is
    really not the entire world – (maybe to some people it is). Remember the term is “Global” warming. Reverend Pat, Please don’t be so presumptuous to believe that God has nothing else to do but embarrass democrats. I believe he loves everyone in the “world”, not just repubs or dems. Remember there are people in this “world ” that are neither.

      You are so correct! God would be apolitical, as that is where a lot of evil originates.

    I suppose God is letting Russia take over Crimea because gays are getting married in America.

    Don’t ya think the power outage might have been due to climate change? Makes more sense to me than God knocking out power because he does not believe in climate change.

      Well, you know, he has a lot of company. Michele Bachman thought that earthquakes and hurricane Irene was God telling our politicians to pay attention. Wack Jobs!

    Why in the hell is this “Christian” still spouting his lies?? Why haven’t the sane people in the Christian faith told him to retire already?? If there are any that is……He’s going on “faith” that what he’s reading from the bible…which is based on his OWN interpretation mind you……is going to come to be…as in, you know, the floods from too much snow…..which is caused by global warming…not anything God did…mind you…I believe in God but I also believe that he lets man live by his own design…global warming is man made…not anything God has done…and it’s up to man to fix it….no more coal…no more oil…..wind and sun and water…..Please…if you care about this “man”….tell his caretakers to send him home…..to live out the rest of his life in peace…..because we don’t believe him anymore…..let him be surrounded by the people who do…and stop wasting air time with his craziness!!!!!!
