Televangelist Pat Robertson, who famously claimed that God told him Mitt Romney would win the presidency in 2012, made his new predictions for 2014, which spelled doom for Democrats and non-Christians.
CrooksandLiars.com reported that after Robertson blew his Romney prediction, he stated, "So many of us miss God, I won’t get into great detail about elections but I sure did miss it, I thought I heard from God, I thought I had heard clearly from God, what happened? You ask God, how did I miss it? Well, we all do and I have a lot of practice.”
According to RightWingWatch.org, Robertson gave a spiritual disclaimer today on the 700 Club in case his predictions failed this year (video below).
"What is [God] going to do this year?" said Robertson. "I offer that with humility saying, let’s see what happens, check it out when the year is over, was I right or wrong?”
Robertson first warned that the world would not be unified, but failed to mention the world has not been unified since the beginning of recorded history.
“I think that the world is going to be in chaos this year,” stated Robertson. “We’re not going to have a unified world. I think sometime during the year there is going to be some kind of a credit crisis and I think China is going to lead the way. The other thing is I do believe that the Iranians will have a nuclear device before the end of the year and Obama is using a tactic of containment that’s not going to work.”
However, Robertson had good news for Republicans.
"I do believe that the Republicans will win control of the Congress, but they will not have a veto-proof majority," predicted Robertson. "The other thing is I think that the President is going to be severely, severely hampered. I think that America is going to turn against him much more so than now, as that Affordable Care thing starts biting hard as it is, he’s going to be discredited terribly."
Robertson then predicted the resignation of President Obama in 2014.
"As a process, I think that he is going to withdraw," said Robertson. "He likes Hawaii, he spent a lot of time in Hawaii and he probably figured, ‘Okay, I’ve done my thing, now let’s go surfing.’"
Robertson then added good news for Christians: "It’s going to be the greatest year in the history of the church. You know, onward Christian soldiers."
