What would Pat Robertson say about the Leadville tornado?
Evangelical pastor Pat Robinson believed God was punishing the United States for its abortion laws with Hurricane Katrina.
He also said that the earthquake that killed more than 100,000 people in Haiti was the result of "a pact" that the country with the devil made to free iself from the French in the early 1700s.
So what would the erudite Robertson have to say about the crazy-weird funnel cloud that hovered near Leadville on Sunday? (See YouTube video after the jump.)
Well, for starters, he'd probably call Leadville a dirtball town. Oh wait, that was Denver Post reporter Mike McPhee.
In that case, Robertson would probably blame Leadville for harboring "Jihad" Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, who was arrested in March and charged with conspiring to give material aid to terrorists intent on a holy war.
But if that's the case, how does Robertson explain Colorado's 300 sunny days a year?
