Previously, Pat Robertson declared that America is turning into Sodom and Gomorrah and that God will destroy the country because of gay marriage. Now Robertson is suggesting that the crack in the Washington Monument resulting from the August 23 earthquake is a sign from God. Robertson "[doesn't] want to get weird on this," though. Listen:
Robertson: Ladies and gentlemen I don’t want to get weird on this so please take it for what it’s worth. But 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 that something that has significance or is it just a result of an earthquake? You judge, but I just want to bring that to your attention. It seems to me symbolic. When Jesus was crucified and when he died the curtain in the Temple was rent from top to bottom and there was a tear and it was extremely symbolic. Is this symbolic? You judge.
