Televangelist Pat Robertson kicked off his “700 Club” program today by praying that God will “throw confusion” into those who are accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault and misconduct.
“The Supreme Court of the United States is the power center of the liberal left,” he said. “They have done their bidding for years and years and years, and now comes a decisive moment as to whether they will lose control of that particular body and they are putting an all-out assault to destroy the reputation of one of the finest judges in America. It is a pre-planned plot, it is unbelievable, and if anybody buys it, they’d be willing to buy the story of the Great Pumpkin and any other myth that you can think of.”
Robertson then asked his viewers to join him in a “special prayer” as the Senate prepared to hear testimony this morning from Christine Blasey Ford, who claims to have been sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh when both were in high school.
“Throw confusion into those who are bringing false accusations against a future Supreme Court judge,” Robertson prayed. “Father, even as David said, ‘Throw confusion into the counsel of Ahitophel,’ we pray that, somehow, the Holy Spirit of God will throw confusion into the counsel of these myriad accusers who are coming forth against a good man who can serve honorably for decades to come in the Supreme Court. Lord, do it. We pray in the name of Jesus, throw confusion into their counsel. Thank you, Lord. Amen.”
