It's conceivable that some thing is fooling Pat into thinking what he might be receiving is from God.

It's conceivable that Pat is delusional to some degree.

Either way, he is delusional, unless, of course, he is evil? Can't see too much evil in predicting people will be killed, though.

I say slightly insane, but mostly damaged by religion, I'm afraid.

You Christians have Mel Gibson, and Pat Robertson on your team.

Are you sure you don't want to reconsider your position? 😯

They will probably say that they are not "true Christians" despite their choice to call themselves such.

True, but, they won't question whether they are true Chrstians themselves, or, like Pat Robertson, merely believe themselves to be.

I'm not sure they will say this about Pat, though, I believe he is fairly well respected in the Chritianity community. Of course, I could be way off the mark about that.

I didn't know Religion of any kind, was the cause or cure of mental or emotional problems.

You are kidding, right? Laugh

Ok, let's take something we can agree on - Islam. You don't think Islam has caused any emotional or mental problems at any point?

Would you not consider flying a plane into a building with the hopes for a reward of virgins in heaven as emotionally and mentally unstable in any way???

Pat Robertson is the poster child for GTDD (grandiose type delusional disorder).

I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what science, evidence, and logic causes me to believe.

No, a mental or emotional problem is an involuntary response or condition, of having no control over impluses, phobias, abuse, Compulsive disorders and reactions, such as Mel Gibsons behavior. He is not in control of his rage, but that condition is medically treatable, most likly chemical imbalances in the brain. It is not caused by being Catholic or Christian, or cured by it.

A Terrorist act is a willfull commission of a crime to create premeditated mass murder, carefully and methotically planned. That is not due to a mental condition. The fact it is connected to the fanatical end of Islam, is not proof of a mental disorder, it is proof of a distorted belief, that is not a true religion. They use true religion, as a justification for these crimes, with a twisted and distorted inturpitation. No matter how insane we all regard 911, those 19 men did not meet any legal definition of insanity, since they were capable of knowing right from wrong. Their acts were not involuntary, they were premeditated, and not driven by impulses they were not in control of.

You Christians have Mel Gibson, and Pat Robertson on your team.

Are you sure you don't want to reconsider your position?

Maybe your position should not be based on judging all Christianity using one Television Evangelist, and one famous person who has an abuse problem.
