Where are the miracles?

This one is also appropriate for April 1st, but it's not a fake, either. No, Pat Robertson really explained how miracles only appear "overseas" to "simple" people who believe everything they're told.

"You tell 'em God loves 'em, and they say, 'OK, he loves me.' You say God'll do miracles, and they say, 'OK, we believe him.' ... That's why they have miracles."

Can Robertson really be that clueless? And yet, he apparently thinks that he and his supporters are "sophisticated," especially compared to those "simple" people overseas.

Yeah, if you're really gullible, if you believe everything you're told and don't have a skeptical bone in your body, you'll likely believe in miracles. Heck, you might even burn 'witches' alive and slaughter albinos for their magical body parts. Gee, it's just a shame that doesn't happen here in America, isn't it?
