The Washington Monument and the Holy Rollers
OMG. Shake me like a rattle. Or call me a prophet eh? Because as soon as I saw this.
I knew that the Christianist crazies would soon be howling at the moon, and proclaiming it to be a sign of God's wrath for the sins of America. i.e. the satanic sodomites, and the black guy in the White House.
And sure enough...
And of course, since holy money is tight these days, the old con man Pat Robertson had to get out there and make sure he got a piece of the action...
Because old Patty Cakes would never "get weird" on us would he? And when it comes to natural disasters, he knows what he's talking about.
A huge storm, Hurricane Gloria, threatened the Eastern Seaboard in 1985. Robertson took to the air on “The 700 Club” and prayed:
“In the name of Jesus, we command you to stop where you are and move northeast, away from harm.”
The storm moved, but it headed northeast and scored a direct hit on Long Island, causing millions of dollars in damage.
Lordy. All I can say is thank goodness the White House didn't come down eh?
Because we never would have heard the end of it.
Hey Patty Cakes. Shake it up baby. You ain't God's weatherman.
And John Lennon was bigger than Jesus...
