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?
