Robertson needs his meds.

Hollywood – Pat Robertson on Sunday said that Hurricane Katrina was God’s way of expressing its anger at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for its selection of Ellen Degeneres to host this year’s Emmy Awards. “By choosing an avowed lesbian for this national event, these Hollywood elites have clearly invited God’s wrath,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club” on Sunday. “Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres’ hometown?”

Robertson also noted that the last time Degeneres hosted the Emmys, in 2001, the September 11 terrorism attacks took place shortly before the ceremony.

“This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards,” Robertson explained to his approximately one million viewers. “America is waiting for her to apologize for the death and destruction that her sexual deviance has brought onto this great nation.”

If this weren't so mean-spirited it would be funny. Degeneres is from New Orleans.

UPDATE: Do I feel stupid or what? That site is a Hollywood satire site. Punked! But it did sound like something a dememted Pat Robertson would say.

UPDATE II:Sometimes satire turns out to be true. It's not because of homosexuality that God sent Katrina. It's abortion, says Robertson. Hal Linsay says "America's judgement has begun." Apparently there are lots of things wrong with America. And Chuc Colsen says that Katrina was God's way of getting our attention back on terrorism and 9/11. Kind of like hitting a mule with a two-by-four.
