Yeah, but can he lift the Old *and* New Testaments? And the Apocrypha? 

On a business trip outside of California, wondering what Pat Robertson's up to:

According to the CBN Web site, Robertson worked his way up to lifting a ton with the help of his physician, who is not named. The posting does not say when the lift occurred, but a CBN spokeswoman released photos to The Associated Press that she said showed Robertson lifting 2,000 pounds in 2003, when Robertson was 73. He is now 76....

The CBN Web site attributes Robertson's energy in part to "his age-defying protein shake." The site offers a recipe for the shake, which contains ingredients such as soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate, flaxseed oil and apple cider vinegar.

But Virginians are obviously better at this thing than wimpy Florida football players, according to the Michigan Football Forum:

[T]he leg-press record for football players at Florida State is 1,335 pounds by Dan Kendra.

Yeah, but does Kendra have video evidence?

How Pat Robertson Leg Pressed 2,000 Pounds

Pat Robertson worked out at the gym on an incline leg press machine with weights up to 570 pounds. Working with his physician, who was an amazing strength trainer, he worked up to 800 pounds, then 1,000 pounds. Then one day he was able to leg press 1,500 pounds one time. Then over the succeeding months, he trained with multiple reps of 1,200 pounds, 1,300 pounds, and 1,400 pounds.

One Saturday morning, his physician said, “I’ll get you bragging rights. Let’s go to 2,000 pounds.” Then he worked up multiple reps of 1,400 pounds, 1,500 pounds, 1,600 pounds, 1,700, pounds, 1,800 pounds and 1,900 pounds. When 2,000 pounds was put on the machine two men got on either side and helped push the load up, and then let it down on Mr. Robertson, who pushed it up one rep and let it go back down again.

Mr. Robertson warms up now at 500 pounds, and was shown on television with Kristi Watts doing 1000 pounds.

His doctor, by the way, has leg pressed 2,700 pounds. It is not nearly as hard as the authors of these reports make it out to be. We have multiple witnesses to the 2,000 pound leg press, plus video of the 10 reps of 1,000 pounds.

And CBN features this story also, which certainly has video evidence.

In January 2006, Pastor Benny arrived with ministry team members to Fiji....As the first service began, the Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase, and his wife, Leba welcomed Pastor Benny. God’s anointing power was evident from those first moments. Many miracles took place at the crusade. One 33 year old woman was deaf from birth. Pastor Benny prayed for her and her ears were suddenly opened. She was able to repeat whatever Pastor Benny spoke no matter where he stood on the platform. One man from New Zealand came walking in on crutches. He was healed, threw away his crutches and began walking away perfectly. One crippled woman came by boat for 4 hours. Thirty-two years ago, she fell on a rock and injured her back. She could walk but was extremely bent over. In an instant, her bent back was straight and she was able to walk and run without pain. Aisles were filled with people of all ages who prayed to invite Jesus into their heart.

On the second day of the crusade, a Hindi man was carried in on a mat, unable to walk. After God’s power fell on him, he was able to walk around the platform. He was so excited about his miracle that he said, “I want to be a Christian!” Pastor Benny knelt with him and the man’s wife. A well-known athlete was healed of a shoulder injury. Another young man was carried up the steps by 4 men. God touched the young man and he walked back and forth across the platform amazed at what he was able to do.

So was the well-known athlete a guest on the 700 Club? Uh, no....
