Pat Robertson delivered on of his standard-issue diatribes against liberalism and humanism, which of course causes every bad thing imaginable and none of it would happen if we just all believed in God. And never mind all of the atrocities committed in the name of God — including Nazism.
You know the liberals, the so called socialists, the progressives, they’ve moved away from God and when you move away from God then you say, ‘were humanists.’ Then as a result of humanity and rejecting God, you have the orgy of the French Revolution, you have the guillotine cutting off the heads of thousands of people, you have the same thing going on now in Europe, you had it under the Nazis. Why can’t we come back to the fact that God loves people?
Because if the Bible is to be believed (and it isn’t, but Pat thinks it is), that simply isn’t true. The God of the Bible either commanded or directly carried out slaughters and atrocities far worse than Hitler ever dreamed of, including killing all of mankind and most of the animals — which the fundies teach as a cute story in Sunday School, FFS.
