“I hope we all agree that Pat Robertson is a man of God.”
This was the response of a friend of a friend in a recent Facebook posting. She was defending Mr. Robertson, who was quoted as saying:
I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America. These other people have been trying to destroy America.
I can’t help but wonder:
- What qualifies someone as a “man of God”?
- What qualifies someone to make a judgment that another person is a “man of God”?
- How can Mr. Robertson know what God’s plan is for America (or if there is a plan for that matter)?
- What is behind the decisions of some people to demonize those who hold different political views?
