Pat Robertson Says God Told Him Ben Carson Will Be Next President

Televangelist Pat Robertson has predicted who will be president in 2016.

“God came to me in a dream. He had a white robe and a white beard, and told me our next president would be another colored man,” said Robertson on “The 700 Club.” “I’m interpreting that to be Dr. Ben Carson. Unless, Barack Obama seeks a third term.”

Robertson went on to praise Carson’s record.

“Sure he’s never run for office, doesn’t know anything about foreign affairs, or the economy, or how to speak to the media, but he’s a godly man. The blacks love them some Jesus,” said Robertson. “And he doesn’t believe in evolution either.”

Carson is a devout Seventh Day Adventist.

“My first act as president will be to sign an executive order ensuring the bible is used as a textbook,” Carson said. “The bible should be in schools, and even operating theaters. I used it when I was a surgeon.”

Carson has said God guided him to run for president. As did Scott Walker, Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry. In 2012, Roberston predicted Republican Mitt Romney would win the presidency.


  1. And then Carson SHOULD say: “My second act as president will be to sign an executive order to abolish the Constitution. That pesky bit about Separation of Church and State always gets in the way.”

    • The Separation of Church and State is not in the Constitution. Much like Gay marriage the Supreme court Made up laws citing that. And people who don’t want the truth Yell “separation of Church and State” and yet can not find it in the Constitution.

      • “Separation of Church and State” is not, per se, in the Constitution, but a proscription against making laws favoring any one religion over another is. That’s been taken to mean that Government shall keep out of the business of Religion. Hence, the separation of the State from the Church.

      • Originally, it was Thomas Jefferson who used the phrase “Separation of church and state” (or “wall of separation between church and state”).

        Anyway, I never said the specific words “Separation of Church and State” are in the Constitution, but the concept that the Government shall not dictate or be involved with religion is: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” While the exact words aren’t in the Constitution, the idea of separation of church and state is very much so.

        People like Ben Carson want religion in schools, but ONLY THEIR religion. He will never say he will ensure that the Torah or the Koran (Quran) are used as textbooks.

      • “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.

        First Amendment to the Constitution, Sparky. Pretty clear.

      • Wrong, the Fore Fathers set Christianity at the fore, they proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving unto God. Your point is about the Constitution not favoring Baptist or Methodist etc. etc. That was what Not Establishing a Religion meant, they wanted no “Church of England” or Papacy style church that ran the country.

        Sorry but The Establishment clause also forbids the endorsement of one religion over another. The Government cannot state a Christian faith (Baptist or Methodist etc. etc.) is better than the Jewish faith, or more holy than being a Buddhist or Muslim.

        As far as your statement: “the Fore Fathers set Christianity at the fore” (i.e. making this a Christian nation)—well, how can I put this: YOU’RE WRONG!

        Despite their respect for religion and their belief in the divine origins of human rights, many of the Founding Fathers worried that religion would corrupt the state and, conversely, that the state would corrupt religion.

        James Madison challenged the idea that religion in politics would lead men to “cooperate for their common good” and asserted instead that it would make them “vex and oppress each other.” Madison praised the new Constitution for keeping faith out of federal officeholding, which would welcome individuals “of every description, whether native or adoptive, whether young or old, and without regard to poverty or wealth, or to any particular profession of religious faith.”

        If the founders had not made their stance on this “Christian nation” issue clear enough, they certainly did in the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli. Begun by George Washington, signed by John Adams and ratified unanimously by a Senate still half-filled with signers of the Constitution, this treaty announced firmly and flatly to the world that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

  2. SDA eschatology says that the mark of the beast is Sunday worship and so SDAs work very hard to maintain the separation of church and state. Unless Carson has gone rogue he will NEVER support the dismantling of separation of church and state and even if he’s rogue on some ideas it’s unlikely he’ll ever support removing the separation.

  3. Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much
    better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He always kept talking about this. I am going to send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!

  4. .. “He had a white robe and a white beard,” .. that could have been Jim Gaffigan in last night’s episode .. was it a woman’s robe? ..

  5. God said, “a colored man”? This has to be satire. Robertson is pretty sad, but this is over the top, even for him.

  6. Robertson is a delusional misguided con artist who sells snake oil to the gullible. He is pure evil.

  7. The deplorable, posturing, preening poseur and utterly false prophet, Pat Robertson, has surrendered all credibility as any kind of prophetic status, given the long unbroken train of his prophesies that have not come to pass. Read. Pat, who claims to believe the Bible, needs to read the Biblical test of whether a prophet is true or false. It is found in Deuteronomy 18:20-21:


  8. Followed shortly by something he actually knew would come true…”My brethren, the homosexuals are at it again with their evil and sinful ways…I cast ye all to hell (rinse repeat x 10)! “I just received a message from the lord as we chanted those beautiful words…instead of opening your hearts he wants you to open those wallets and just give all you can…wait…I’m getting another message…don’t just give what you can, GIVE IT ALL!! The lord also takes checks with at least two forms of ID and a current address made out to Pat Robertson…That’s P-A-T R-O………………….

  9. The fact that many people can read an obvious satire and fall for it as truth is as disturbing as is the warped theology and politics of Pat Robertson. Heaven help the USA!

  10. At 1% in Iowa and 2% in New Hampshire, it may be time to reevaluate that dream. After over 40 years as a Christian, I’ve learned that 99% of people who say they had a prophetic dream are only dreaming.. ,

  11. Satire, friends, satire. And in the real world it appears the good Doctor Carson is going nowhere but into oblivion an obscurity just like other bat-shit crazy black conservatives like Allan Keyes and Herman Cain.
