Televangelist Pat Robertson suggested on Monday “that Christians in Florida had convinced God to move soon-to-be Hurricane Isaac away from Tampa, Florida to protect Republicans.”
“[...] “We have had lots and lots of people praying around the clock that it would move,” Rev. Jesten Peters explained. “And if you watch from the very beginning where they were saying it was coming up and now where they’re saying it’s going, then it’s really moved a lot for us, and we appreciate God doing that and moving it for us.”
Notice these “Christians” prayed that the hurricane would MOVE. They didn’t pray it would disappear or lose force or strength (like that would work!) — they prayed that the hurricane would simply go destroy someone else’s town because of their political convention. At least, that’s what they say they believe Jesus agreed to do for them.
