The 93-year-old Christian influencer is dead, 27 years shy of how long he expected God to let him live
"In 2006, Robertson relayed an inaccurate prediction he said he received from God about a possible tsunami devastating the Pacific Northwest, according to the Associated Press. The next year, he said God told him there would be a terrorist attack on the United States: “The Lord didn’t say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that.” According to his 1990 book, “The New Millennium,” Robertson predicted that the world would end on April 29, 2007. Again, the world was not destroyed."
In biblical terms, he is a false prophet and should be killed (according to the bible). But hey, Christians never heed the book unless it is to cherry pick something they already agree with anyway. He was a false prophet given a platform for decades to spread misinformation and BS.
Someone posted this on another site.
"Celebrate P.R.I.D.E. Day!
Pat Robertson Is Dead, Everybody!"

He made Trump possible. He was a part of a movement to politicize White Evangelical Christianity into white Christian nationalism. His demonization of the other helped polarize those believers against everyone outside of their tribe and made governing the nation that much more difficult.
And his part in the fifty year crusade to flood the judiciary with ideologues instead of judges who rule according to the law is currently being exploited to roll back 160 years of progress in human rights.
So, thanks for that, Pat. I hope you were right about Hell being a real place.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
How to know you've had a good day:
- You're tired and sore, but not exhausted and in agony.
- You have a good drink in your hand.
- You've got a belly full of delicious food.
- Pat Robertson is dead.
Pat has finally met his maker: Evolution, a return to non-living matter, and the dreaded reality that his entire existence (and massive wealth) was the propagation of a gigantic fraud: Jesus, Inc. The 700 Club is now the 0 Club.
Finally some good news.
Appropriate that this old homophobe breathes his last during Pride Month.
LGBTQIA+s go on living their lives in spite of the Christian-fueled reichwing hatred against them.
Robertson graduated from the Yale law school, but could never pass the bar exam. He went into the religion business because it paid well, and didn't involve much work. He epitomized the grifting TV preacher, and he upped the game by largely co-opting the Republican party. A vile legacy we continue to live with. Robertson pretty well defined the idea there is no horror that cannot be, and has not been, justified in the name of religion. The evangelicals are their own worst argument.
Fucking FINALLY. Is he the one getting an enema and being buried in a matchbox?

What do John Wayne and Pat Robertson have in common besides being reactionary Republican media figures?
They share a common first name: Marion.
Hallelujah! Every time someone like Robertson pops their clogs, the world becomes a slightly better place. If only Christopher Hitchens was still alive to memorialise him. 🥳
"On June 8, 2023, Robertson died at his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia."
So THAT'S why the air smells so fresh this morning.
If the Goddies were even remotely right about the LGBT community, why did we get such a nice gift for Pride month?
I won’t mourn his passing.
