Sounds sort of like a threat

Thousands of conservative Christians gathered Saturday on Independence Mall in Philadelphia to pray for the future of the United States in the weeks before the presidential election.
Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins topped a full day of speakers at “The America for Jesus 2012” prayer rally.
Robertson, a former Republican candidate for president, called the election important, but didn’t mention either major political party or candidate by name.
“I don’t care what the ACLU says or any atheists say. This nation belongs to Jesus, and we’re here today to reclaim his sovereignty,” said Robertson, 82, who founded the Christian Coalition and Christian Broadcasting Network, and ran for president in 1988.

What exactly does Robertson mean by that statement? Is he implying that there must be an effort to subjugate Americans under restrictive Levitical law? Or is he merely pandering to his base?


  1. Robertson is a dominionist Christian, I think.

    Preachers along the same vein have said the same for at at least two centuries here in America. Then the mass media came along and took what used to be preached only from pulpits and revival tents into our living rooms. **sigh**

  2. BTW, Robertson has been soundly thumped politically. That's as it should be, IMO.
