Evangelicals Oppose Hurricane Florence
Pat Robertson, former presidential candidate and a long-time leader of the evangelicals, once again takes center stage. The Christian Post reports he is putting his spiritual powers to good use, commanding Hurricane Florence: “We declare in the name of the Lord that you shall go no farther, you shall do no damage in this area.”
He elaborated: “In the name of Jesus — Hurricane Florence, we speak to you and we command the storm to cease its forward motion and go harmlessly into the Atlantic. Go up north away from land and veer off, in the name of Jesus. We declare a shield of protection all over Tidewater and we declare a shield of protection over those innocent people in the path of this hurricane. In Jesus' holy name, be out to sea!”
According to Robertson and the Christian Post, “hurricanes of past years have been diverted from Virginia thanks to prayers.” Our prayers go with them. May they be as successful as they are at raising money and fleecing rubes.
