Pat Robertson says God told him what will happen in 2011, and it’s good news if you’re Pat Robertson, bad news if you’re anyone else.

What, specifically, did God tell Robertson? “Your country is in grave peril,” Robertson said. “In two years will come a time of reckoning. Your currency will shrink in value. Unemployment will escalate. There will be turmoil.”

But Robertson isn’t sweating it. His CBN network and Regent University will both prosper, and his American Center for Law and Justice “will be needed like never before,” he said.Robertson — for the uninitiated — is the Christian televangelist who, among other things, claimed the devastating earthquake in Haiti last year was a result of Haitians signing a “pact to the devil.” In an unexpected move, he recently said that criminalizing marijuana is “ruining young people.”
