Pat Robertson: Is Crack In Washington Monument A “Sign Of The Lord”?

And now we turn to The 700 Club‘s resident seismologist, Pat Robertson. Take it away, Pat!

This week, CBN’s flagship program did a week-long special series on “The Sign of the Times.” Well, talk about synergy, because this week has brought us an earthquake on the East Coast and an impending hurricane. After the earthquake hit, you might remember reports that the Washington Monument sustained a minor crack.

Pat Robertson wondered if it was really all the hurricane’s fault, or if the crack was a sign from God. However, he was careful to preface his remarks with the following:

“I don’t want to get weird on this…”

Naturally. Speculate all you want on the supernatural causes of mysterious cracks, but let’s not have things getting weird. Robertson continues:

It seems to me the Washington Monument is a symbol of America’s power. It has been the symbol of our great nation. We look at that monument and we say, ‘This is one nation under God.’ Now there’s a crack in it. There’s a crack in it, and it’s closed up. Is that a sign from the Lord, is it something that has significance or is it just a result of an earthquake? You judge.

Are we ever going to get through a natural disaster without Pat Robertson weighing in? Because I feel like this has happened before
