Jesus Thinks He's a Jerk - Again

Wherever world leaders are in ill health, Pat Robertson will strike. After Israeli PM Ariel Sharon suffered a stroke which effectively ended his political career (if not his life), Robertson went on the air to declare that God was punishing Sharon for his role in the peace process. Apparently the Lord doesn't like people messing with His stuff:

God says, 'This land belongs to me, and you'd better leave it alone,' [Robertson] said.
Implicit in that is the obvious "or else" that ends the sentiment. Of course, one might wonder if an all-powerful creator might more effectively regulate the use of His stuff by some kind of grand deific proclamation (sky writing, perhaps?) rather than striking down one political leader at a time.
