The Rev. Pat: angered by the Tebow trade

BY NOW, YOU'VE probably heard the grisly story of how some of the unsaintly New Orleans Saints were running a pool to harm opposing quarterbacks. Not that you needed a pool for that sort of thing to happen. Even the head coach, Sean Payton, was in on the deal and has since been suspended without pay ($7.5 million) by the NFL for a year.

Anyway, TV preacher Pat Robertson has his own ideas about the fate of certain quarterbacks.

Robertson is miffed because the Denver Broncos, who just signed superstar QB Peyton Manning, traded Tim Tebow, the prayerful quarterback, to the New York Jets. He accused Denver of treating Tebow "shabbily".

"And you must ask yourself," the Rev said, "OK, Peyton Manning was a tremendous quarterback, but he's been injured. If the injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback - and in my opinion, it would serve them right."

Anybody in doubt about what has to happen to serve 'em right?

No doubt, there wil be an earthquake, tsnunami, tornado, typhoon or some other disaster of nature that will obviously be directed by the hand of God over His displeasure at the trade.

As we all know, Rev. Chuckles has a direct pipeline with the Almighty.

Has anyone asked the Rev. Robertson about the Biblical injunction against vigilante justice: "Vengeance is mine," sayeth the Lord.
