Pat Robertson: No, I will not pray for your eyeballs to grow back

“Don’t sit on your couch and give us grief because we’re not praying for legs to grow for Heaven’s sakes," says Pat

Pat Robertson is only one man. A truly great and honorable man, no doubt, but still only one man. He can only do so much.

So you can imagine his surprise (and my surprise, and the world's surprise) when an angry viewer wrote to the "700 Club" complaining that Robertson isn't doing enough to pray for the spontaneous regeneration of limbs, eyeballs and teeth.

Well OK then, "700 Club" viewer. For your information, Robertson has personally witnessed people's limbs, teeth and eyeballs "recreated," but that does not mean he needs to go around bragging about it all day.

And besides, who are you to judge him, sitting there on your couch?

“Don’t sit on your couch and give us grief because we’re not praying for legs to grow for Heaven’s sakes," Robertson scoffs. "If we can ask God to heal your cancer, thank Him for that, please.”
