Huge Hand From Sky Whacks Pat Robertson In Head
Intelligent Designer Chastises Mortal
Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting "intelligent design" and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.Shortly after televangelist Pat Robertson warned the residents of Dover, Pennsylvania that they would soon suffer the wrath of God, a giant hand descended from the heavens and smacked Roberston "upside the head repeatedly," witnesses said.

At the same time, a booming and authoritative voice "like the voice of God" filled the air. "Jesus Christ!" God said.
A spokesangel for God later asked humanity to forgive Mr. Robertson and reminded all that he is "just a work-in-progress."
"God is hoping that future generations of Robertsons will evolve a more refined sense of spirituality," said the spokesangel.
The incident occurred during a break in the taping of "The 700 Club," and is the first reported case of divine intervention before a studio audience.
