Video: Pat Robertson Says America "Belongs to Jesus"

| by Michael Allen

On Wednesday, televangelist Pat Robertson stated that God had empowered him to create the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) “to reaffirm His claim over this land” (video below).

During a speech for CBN’s annual 'Week of Prayer,' Robertson told a group of followers about how the Jamestown settlers had claimed the land for God by planting a cross at Cape Henry and then God later transferred that “holiness” to him to build CBN.

Robertson said: “I don’t care what the liberals have to say about this, America started as a Christian nation, it didn’t start as a heathen nation, it belongs to Jesus Christ, it’s his, it’s his country. What we need to do on a day like this is to reaffirm his claim over this land."
