Pat on woman’s rights:

“Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

Pat on 9/11:

“We have insulted God” with legal abortion and resrictions on religion in public places. “Then we say ‘why does this happen?’ Well, why it’s happening is that God Almighty is lifting his protection from us.”

Pat on the courts:

“The Supreme Court is bringing upon this nation the wrath of God” by ruling in favor of abortion rights and gay rights.

Pat on other churches:

“You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist.”

Pat on gay people:

“Many of those people involved with Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals–the two things seem to go together.” -Note: Adolf Hitler was a practicing Catholic.

Pat on other TV channels:

“Popular television is flooded with filth and violence; MTV, VH-1, and pop radio stations are sewers of obscenity, rebellion and violence; pop magazines promote the vilest forms of pornography and a form of materialism, selfishness, and greed that has fallen to the lowest levels in human history.” -Note: Nobody on the Real World-Austin has called for hits on democratically elected leaders.

Pat on private property and banking:

“Modern experience has shown that usury inevitably leads to subservience. And God did not want that for his people but rather intend for them to rule…
He directed that every 50 years, all debt would be cancelled, all property would be redistributed, and the cycle would begin again. Notwithstanding the sneers of many in the banking community, it may be that God’s way is the only one open to us – a year of jubilee to straighten us out. -Note: Pat has yet to redistribute his or The 700 Club‘s money.

This man has been saying crazy things on national TV for years, why is it that we never noticed before?

    Excellent point.

    The church (somehow I never knew I was being imbued with the “spirit of the anti-Christ” as a young Presbyterian) and banking things are just plain funny.

    Pat has a future in standup comedy. I think it would have been great guerilla theater to invite Pat Robertson to a college for a serious lecture, fill it with students and faculty, and just laugh at all the hateful, ridiculous things he said, meaning them quite seriously. It’d be great to see him flustered and drowned out by raucous laughter from the balcony.

    Pat Robertson is the original shock jock.

    That is all.

    He also needs to get his AARP membership activated or do some infomercials on his pancakes.

    >>”Many of those people involved with Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals–the two things seem to go together.” -Note: Adolf Hitler was a practicing Catholic.<<

    Not to mention that Hitler killed tens of thousands of homosexuals in the camps. Of course, Pat probably thinks Catholics are one step beyond the Antichrist.

    I consider myself a hardcore fundamentalist christian, since I was born again in college, but I must say I have never found Pat Robertson appealing in any way. I absolutely literally believe what the bible says and have changed all of my thoughts to conform with the bible, so there are points in which I agree with Pat Robertson. You can think of me as close-minded, racist, sexist, homophobic or whatever, but that’s not the case. I love Jesus and I hate sin period. I love all people even though I might not agree with their lifestyle, but that aside.

    My big problem with Pat Robertson is that he makes these big mental leaps and connections that are absolutely non-sensical like the homosexual satanist connection. Or go assasinate elected officials.

    Or how about this over the top quote “Popular television is flooded with filth and violence…and greed that has fallen to the lowest levels in human history.” US TV of today does not even compare to some pagan cultures that are alive today, nor does it come close to the biblical accounts of Sodom and Gomorrah (don’t know if I spelled it correctly).

    I have to say I agree with three of his comments about feminism (partly), 9/11 and the courts (partly). With the rest I kind of see the gist of what he’s getting at, but he does a bad job of it.

    Pat Robertson speaks to people like they are idiots in my opinion. He doesn’t have the capacity to imagine simple counter arguments against what he is preaching world wide and every time I listen to him I feel like I am being fed propaganda. I was also very disappointed about the fact that he denied saying assassination, but claimed all he said was we should “take him out”.

    I think Robertson is fake, racisit and needs to be educated, i think he says lots of crap that we can be better without him.

    @streetsmart—At least you are partly awake.

    “You can think of me as close-minded, racist, sexist, homophobic or whatever, but that’s not the case.”
    See, here’s the thing. If the bible says to oppose honmosexuality, and oppose full recognition and rights for homosexual sex, and you agree, that makes you a close-minded bigot. Just because it’s in the bible is no excuse. So, live with it, streetsmart – your religion is making you a closed-minded, empty-hearted bigot.

    It’s unbelievable how much ignorance and hatred one person can harbor. It must be difficult to sustain that ignorance with all of the books, scholarly articles, and facts circling around; I almost have to reluctantly give Pat credit for being able to keep his head so far in the sand. Wow!

    Alright well I’m afraid I have to cut this comment short. I’m a feminist you see, and I have to get back to killing children, plotting the death of capitalism, and stirring my cauldron. haha

    I wonder what Pat would say about some of the issues that feminists care about. If he thinks feminists are evil does that mean he’s okay with female genital mutilation, systematic gang rape, dowry deaths, female infanticide, and honor killings? Hm, interesting.
