Television evangelist Pat Robertson suggested Thursday on The 700 Club that the crack in the Washington Monument caused by an earthquake on Tuesday was a sign from God.

“Ladies and gentlemen I don’t want to get weird on this so please take it for what it’s worth,” he said. “But it seems to me the Washington Monument is a symbol of America’s power, it has been the symbol of our great nation, we look at that monument and say this is one nation under God. Now there’s a crack in it, there’s a crack in it and it’s closed up. Is that a sign from the Lord?”

“You judge, but I just want to bring that to your attention. It seems to me symbolic.”
