Best quote in the story: “I have a relatively good track record,” he said. “Sometimes I miss.”
But you claimed God is your inside source. This means either God isn’t quite as omnipotent and omniscient as you claim or maybe the Supreme Being just likes messing with you.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
It’s possible that Pat doesn’t speak “God” all that well, and stuff is getting lost in the translation.
