Pat Robertson to God: Please ‘throw confusion’ into Kavanaugh’s accusers

During his 700 Club television program this Thursday, Pat Robertson called out to God as Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh prepared to answer questions from senators regarding the sexual assault accusations against the SCOTUS nominee. But Robertson didn’t ask God to reveal the truth. He asked God to sow confusion.

In a video flagged by Right Wing Watch, Robertson started out the segment declaring that the Supreme Court is currently “the power center of the liberal left.”

“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,” Robertson continued, adding that the accusations were a “pre-planned plot.”

“It is unbelievable,” Robertson said. “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.”

The televangelist then led his viewers in a “special prayer.”

“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,’” Robertson continued, referring to a verse from the bible.

“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.”
