News of the Off-Beat: Pat Robertson urges 'prayer offensive' against US Supreme Court

This in from AFP:

Prominent US televangelist Pat Robertson launched a "prayer offensive" against the Supreme Court, urging his supporters to pray for the removal of three sitting justices.

"Would you join with me and many others in crying out to our Lord to change the Court?" Robertson asked viewers of his Christian Broadcasting Network.

Robertson and other prominent members of the religious right have condemned the recent Supreme Court ruling, decriminalising gay sex between consenting adults.

They argue that the decision opens the door to bigamy, legalized prostitution, and even incest.

"No culture has ever endured which has turned openly to homosexuality," said Robertson, who described the nine-member Supreme Court as a "non-elected oligarchy" capable of changing the moral fabric of the nation.

But rather than calling for the abolition of the court, Robertson urged his viewers to pray for the retirement of three judges and their replacement by three conservative justices.
Oh, Lordy.

Do you remember when Oral Roberts said if he didn't get 6 million dollars in donations, God was going to call him. Can't we set a sufficiently high enough fundraising goal to get God to call Pat Robertson? Would you join with me and many others in crying out to our Lord on the issue of this annoying man?
