  1. It’s not possible because it wouldn’t work, would it Pat?

    It isn’t something that you can get compliant doctors to testify to because anyone could see whether the limb had regrown or not. Leaving no room for B/S.

  2. What?! But fellow phobe and elderly NZ nutbar Bill Subritzsky referred to a “miraculous” Tongan faith healing incident where he expelled the “spirit of homosexuality” from an uneven legged man and his bodily proportions adjusted!!!
    Egad. Now they’re contradicting each other!

    1. “Uneven legged” is a scam faith healers sometimes use. Derren Brown has done a demo to show how they do it. It’s something to do with manipulating the subjects shoe, and of course employing suggestion. It is certainly not restoring missing limbs.

    Sorry Pat.

    Prayer makes nothing happen.

    Genuflecting to thin air achieves nothing other than
    nothing.

    Unless you have convinced the stupid otherwise.

    Scaring hellfire to millions over the years makes lots of money happen for you.

    Please die.

    I’m pretty sure that there is nothing waiting for you other than your inheritance taxes and a dirt box.

    Sad nonsense.

  5. I said thirty years ago that Pat Robertson was insane. Time has proved me to be correct.

    Yet some reptiles have tails that can grow back… so much for humanity being a chosen species!!

  7. So what does he mean by “created miracle” when he implies that someone’s eyeball grew back?
    Is he talking “I went to the hospital, they booked me in for a transplant, it’s a miracle!” or more likely, is he talking out of his ass?

    So called ‘medical miracles’ remind me of Frobisher and Gleason raspberry flavoured ice-lollies (40 second mark in this clip)

  8. Headline is mildly misleading, he doesn’t really explain at all why you can’t pray to regrow limbs, he just sort of rambles about it without giving any clear answer.

  9. Aw, the poor man, he obviously doesn’t have any good family members checking that he’s taking his medication every day.

    In any rational country this man would be under 24 hour psychiatric care, not put on TV to give voodoo sermons to other mentally unstable citizens.

  10. Praying doesn’t appear to work in LOADS of cases – not just about regrowing limbs. I’ve prayed constantly to win the lottery. I’ve prayed for world peace. I’ve prayed my heart-out for god to take one of his most loyal servants (Fischer). No-one appears to be listening. I wonder what this disgusting old homophobe prays about and how many times he’s been answered? I wonder if he prays for god to stop him having the gay thoughts he undoubtedly has?Self delusion? YOU BETTCHA!!!
