However, you have to hand it to Pat Robertson for thinking completely outside the box and coming up with the most convoluted warning message from God ever. Who is at fault for both Katrina and 9/11? Ellen Degeneres for hosting the Emmys.
"By choosing an avowed lesbian for this national event, these Hollywood elites have clearly invited God's wrath," Robertson said on "The 700 Club" on [9/5/05]. "Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres's hometown?"OK, while this is a parody, but who can tell anymore? I'm starting to wonder if Pat Robertson's is the man behind the Weekly World News.
Robertson also noted that the last time Degeneres hosted the Emmys, in 2001, the September 11 terrorism attacks took place shortly before the ceremony.“This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards,” Robertson explained to his approximately one million viewers. “America is waiting for her to apologize for the death and destruction that her sexual deviance has brought onto this great nation.”
Robertson added that other tragedies of the past several years can be linked to Degeneres’ growing national prominence. September, 2003, for example, is both the month that her talk show debuted and when insurgents first gained a foothold in Iraq following the successful March invasion. “Now we know why things took a turn for the worse,” he explained.
