On today’s 700 Club televangelist Pat Robertson reminded his audience that Muhammad was a pedophile and suggested President Barack Obama is a secret Muslim.
Right Wing Watch reports Robertson suggested President Obama professed his faith in Islam during a 2012 address to the UN General Assembly where he said that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
However, as Right Wing Watch notes, Robertson takes Obama’s remarks out of context. Obama was merely advocating for protecting freedom of speech and religion, and not professing his faith in Islam.
On the program Robertson asked God to “deliver” the US from President Obama before it’s too late, saying:
Our president is frankly out of his mind, making a statement like that. The future belongs to those who belong to God almighty, not those who believe in this stuff…
We need to do something to pray to be delivered from this president. He is a disaster, an absolute disaster. Democrat, Republican or whatever, this country is into serious decline unless something dramatic is done about it.
For the record, Obama claims to be a Christian, and has self identified as a Christian for many years. In fact, for twenty years Obama was a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, a Congregationalist denomination of mainstream Protestantism. Obama ended his church membership during the 2008 presidential campaign after public uproar and protest concerning the inflammatory racial remarks made by the church’s pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
As for Muhammad’s pedophhilia, critics allege that Aisha was just six years old when she was betrothed to Muhammad, himself in his 50s, and only nine when the marriage was consummated.
