Morning Mail: Pat Robertson puts 700 Club mystery Jesus curse on Peyton Manning (video)

Mar 23, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT


It was safe to say that televangelist and all-around fun guy Pat Robertson was not going to be amused when the Broncos dumped his beloved Tim Tebow for the Godless Peyton Manning, and on Thursday that was confirmed. Robertson broke down the implications of the Manning-to-Denver deal on the Christian Broadcasting Network, and he wasn’t kind to the Broncos.

Pat stopped short of predicting that an earthquake would swallow Denver Broncos headquarters sometime in the next few weeks, but one could tell that he secretly wishes that would happen. Instead, the televangelist’s answer to Andy Rooney made a veiled threat. After charging that the Broncos “treated Tim Tebow shabbily,” he pointed out that Manning is damaged goods. And … “If that injury comes back, Denver will find themselves without a quarterback. And in my opinion it will serve them right.” (Emphasis his).

Of course he has a point about the Broncos taking a chance on Manning. But the way he presented it was kind of creepy, in a “curse upon your house” kind of way. Of course there’s also the possibility that he was just stoned.

But the best part of the entire report comes after Robertson is done speaking, and he swings it back to co-host Terry Meeuwsen. One can tell that the poor woman hasn’t the vaguest idea what was just being discussed.

    I don’t get it, all he said was the truth?

    Elway and Fox don’t really care if Manning’s a flop in Denver. Sure if he wins it’s a bonus, but the whole point of this trade is to get out from under Tebow-mania and regain control of the most important position on a football team.

    Pat Robertson has one goal in mind for his outrageous comments – publicity. What’s the old saying, “I don’t care what you write just make sure you spell my name correctly”?

    He grieves my heart because some of you think of him when you think of a Christian. There are actually some serious thinking people who are followers of Jesus and they are out in the world doing good – not for fame, but to serve the greatest person who ever walked the face of this earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.
