Pat Robertson calls for Primary votes of tornado dead not be counted


- Arkansas and Tennessee were ravaged by tornadoes on Tuesday with the current fatality count at over 26 and rising. During his nightly broadcast, Pat Robertson called for his followers to pray for the injured and the families of the deceased.

Later in the broadcast, during a Primary Day discussion, Robertson claimed that the voters in
Tennessee and Arkansas who were killed probably voted for someone other than a Christian Conservative. “This was not a random act of God, but rather a message to those who do not follow His teachings. Those primary votes should not count.”

“I know this is painful for the families to hear, but if you voted for anyone other than a Christian, you have accepted God’s wrath, and that's the way it is, period.”

Later in the broadcast, Robertson clarified his position stating that while the votes of the deceased should count now, “…it will be very hard for them to vote in the election in November.”
