Pat Robertson is Bat Shit Crazy

Ok, maybe the title is a little harsh.  But come on, this is a guy that compared Liberals to Nazis, called feminists child murderers, and said that Haiti is suffering because of the pact they made with the devil to get the French out.  And now his latest rant involves same sex marriage.  Recently on the 700 Club, Mr. Robertson explained that America is turning into a modern day Sodom and is heading toward the path of God’s destruction.

According to Pat, no civilization has ever embraced homosexuality and survived.  I’m assuming he’s referring to ancient civilizations, since they’re all gone, and that’s why we call them ancient.  Duh.  Whether or not a civilization has embraced homosexuality hasn’t been the deciding factor in whether it survived.  All civilizations rise and fall.  It’s the nature of the beast.  How many ancient civilizations that have protested homosexuality have survived?  What a stupid argument in my opinion.  And if he’s referring to present-day, there are currently 10 countries that have legalized same-sex marriage.  I guess we’ll overturn the law as soon as we see God hit those countries and drop them like dominoes.  Hopefully we’ll have enough time!

Join the madness below:

Thanks, Pat, for being an easy target.  Keep up the good work.

On the other hand, kudos to NY Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature for passing this legislation.  New York’s governor should be commended for actually following through on a campaign promise, despite its surrounding controversy.  So chalk one up for basic human rights — something this nation was founded upon.  After all, I think one of the most forgotten phrases in the US Declaration of Independence is the right to “the pursuit of happiness.”  As long as I’m an American, I will never let someone else’s religious beliefs get in the way of my pursuit, nor should you.

    Pat Robertson is a demented old fool. I do not think he fears god’s retribution as much as he actively wants it to happen and, thus validate his insanity.

      Agreed! And I almost feel guilty for picking on such an obvious and easy target, but the fact of the matter is that there are droves of people in this country that listen to him and hang on his every word. And these people vote! If we can stay focused on keeping religious rhetoric and symbolism out of politics and government, then we can lessen the reach and impact of people like Robertson who take a book of fables and believe it as if it were historical fact.

    When does the ABC Family channel get released from their contractual obligation to carry his demented ravings? It’s really not the sort of thing to which children should ever be exposed.

    Also, thanks for submitting to the blogmap! I think your being based in Churchville makes your pin on the map the most ironic.

      I’m pretty sure ABC Family has to air the 700 Club until the Rapture. It was part of the deal when Disney bought the network from P-Rob. But they do put a disclaimer in front of it now, that says this program is brought to you by CBN. So they’re doing all they can, I guess.

      I’m pretty sure kids just turn the channel, because no one wants to watch an old man talk to them about God right after watching some cheesy kiddie sitcom.

    Oh, Pat Robertson: Correlation does not imply causation.
