VIRGINIA BEACH – Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson today prayed on his Christian Broadcasting Network, based here, that Hurricane Isabel would turn from the coast. He asked God to put a “wall of protection” around Virginia Beach and the East Coast.

“In the name of Jesus, we reach out our hand in faith and we command that storm to cease its forward motion to the north and to turn and to go out into the sea,” Robertson prayed on The 700 Club program.

Now what the hell did I do with my duct-tape…

  1. OHHH Does that mean I can put all my yard crap back out???
    And I can return all the bottled water that I had to wait a half hour to buy???

  2. Seriously, I don’t even know why those eggheads at the National Hurricane Center even bother when you have a hurricane path trump card like Pat Robertson lingering around.

  3. The sad part is that Pat’s made a relatively safe bet. If the storm does turn and head back out over the ocean then Pat can claim victory for the power of prayer.

    Asking the heavens, or in this case God, to make a wall appear to protect his people is right in his alley.
