For decades conservative Christian yapping head Pat Robertson has made a living by saying really crazy shit. He says it on TV, he writes it in books, he’s on the Internet. So this crazy shit gets a lot of attention. And the shit just gets weirder and weirder.
Take the time when he blamed 9/11 on “pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way.” Or when he made fun of people who have plastic surgery saying they’ve “got the eyes like they’re Oriental” and then pulled his eyelids to either side and squinted. Or when he asked if mac and cheese was a “black thing.” Or when he compared homosexuality to demon possession.
But the man was not content to stop there. He had not reached the apex of his insanity. And while some people said it couldn’t be done, the man may have finally maxed out his crazy card.
On the Aug. 27 episode of The 700 Club, while discussing AIDS with co-host Terry Meeuwsen, Robertson said, “There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody they had a heart attack, you can tell that they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody they’ve got AIDS,” he continued.
Although he does not mention gay adoption at all — that would be a longer clip, I’m sure — I felt compelled to share this little bit of Christian hatred and selfishness from the diseased mind of Pat Robertson, who comes out against adoption because he knows adopted kids grow up “weird.” No weirder than he ended up.
Apparently God meant it when she said, “No graven images.” (It’s a Top 10 when it comes to commandments. Numero 4, a big one. You can check out this and the other commandments in that source for all things holy and everything else, Wikipedia.)
A 62-foot tall statue of Jesus was struck by lightning and burned to the ground last night in Monroe, Ohio, a city 30 miles north of Cincinnati.
The statue was dubbed “Touchdown Jesus” because the position of the arms resembles a football referee signaling a touchdown.
Made of foam over a steel frame, only the steel frame remains.
God has proven that she has a great sense of humor when it comes to people thinking they speak for her.
When Pat Robertson predicted hurricanes would strike Orlando if Disney continued to host Gay Days, the first hurricane that year came on shore near Virginia Beach, home of Robertson’s ministry.
And I’m just waiting for the first person to comment about my use of the feminine pronoun. I hope you have a good working knowledge of Hebrew, though, before you do.
UPDATE: The Solid Rock Church announced this afternoon that they’ll rebuild Jesus, according to the Dayton Business Journal. An additional $400-500,000 in damage was done to the church’s amphitheater from flames that started in the flammable statue. Work on rebuilding the sculpture will probably take three months or more, they estimated.
Hustler Video at 1038 Lebanon St. is 1.2 miles from the church, according to Google maps. Their sign that stands on a tall pole remained untouched in the lightning storm.
I haven’t read anywhere the real reason for the Iceland volcano that has air traffic across Europe shut down. Most are treating this like a natural event.
But we know better.
On Feb. 1, Johanna Sigurdardottir was named Prime Minister of Iceland, the first openly gay or lesbian leader of a country. She was named interim leader until elections in May.
I’m not sure why Pat Robertson didn’t catch this, but obviously if gays and lesbians caused Hurricane Katrina and September 11, we caused this. And unlike the voodoo nonsense or whatever it was he blamed the Haiti earthquake on, I say we take full credit for that one too.
So if you’re sitting in an airport waiting for a flight or had your vacation plans canceled, blame the gays. We caused the volcano. It’s our fault.
I’d never impose my opinion here, but Pat Robertson is an idiot.
Robertson said that the earthquake in Haiti, which may have killed 100,000 people, was caused by Haitians who made a pact with the devil to rid themselves of French rule. No really. I didn’t make that up. Here. Watch him:
Now this is certainly not the first time he’s said hateful and stupid things.
After Sept. 11, he and buddy Jerry Falwell said that the gays caused the World Trade Center attack.
And after a series of hurricanes hit Florida, again, it was the gays. Yes, once you earn your toaster over, apparently, you are bestowed with a powerful ability to cause catastrophic weather conditions.
But Hurricane Katrina? That one had to do with legalized abortion.
Here are some of his most moronic quotes:
“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
“Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up.” Foggy Bottom is where the State Department is located. Why isn’t this man investigated as a terrorist?
“Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It’s no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.”
Here’s my question to mainstream media. You report on these stupid statements of him. But then you forget all about it and run back to him to come on the air as a commentator. Why is he taken as a serious religious man?
