Let your fingers take a walk\\
Through the business guide\\
For the 'Born Again' flock\\
You'll be keeping all your money\\
In the Kingdom now\\
And you'll only drink milk\\
From a Christian cow"''

->Once upon a time, Christianity created its own enemy and called it Satanism. Everything was a matter of good and evil, plain and simple, black and white . . . but this is a gray world. The two extremes, Christ and Satan, finally merged in the Christian militia. There was always a powerful attraction there; now it's been fulfilled. Christ and Anti-Christ in one. Only took two thousand years.

-> Robertson is a founding member of the Taliban satellite known as the ''700 Club'', a Christian ultra-extremist terrorist group funded by TV telethons. When people call in, Robertson will cure them for whatever illness they may have by hollering his ever-faithful servant, God, and make Him perform the trick -- or to smite down people Robertson doesn’t particularly fancy. Robertson views himself as God’s personal messenger on earth (read that as “Pat da boss, Jesus his muscle man”), and claims to have direct contact with the prophets ([[AGodAmI yes, those prophets]]). This is a source of information Robertson uses to predict disasters that will happen to people who don’t behave the way Robertson thinks God ought to want people to behave. He often makes his predictions [[PhonyPsychic after a disaster has already struck]], but there are the annual exceptions (we are still waiting for Orlando to be destroyed by a meteor). In fact, Robertson strikes one as a slightly eccentric, utterly delusional and repugnantly evil version of [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the wizard Tim]]: ''“Hurricane, In the name of Jesus I take authority over you and command you to change course. In the name of Jesus I command you to turn away from [[DeepSouth Virginia Beach]] now. You will turn south and then east and strike the wicked godless heathen land of [[DirtyCommunists Cuba]] instead. Amen.”'' Chants Pat. He also prophesied the end of times to happen in 1980, 1982, 1985, 1996 and 2007...he also has first-hand testimonial from Jesus that [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Obama]] will disintegrate America, the only remedy being prayer and [[ViolinScam sending Robertson money.]]
