God hates tattoos, or at least The 700 Clubs Pat Robertson thinks so.
A caller told Robertson that she was considering a Jesus tattoo on her upper back and wondered if that would make the tattoo okay.
“It doesn’t make it okay because it’s religious, believe me,” Robertson asserted. “I mean, it could be a tattoo of some hoochie-cooch girl. I mean, it doesn’t really make any difference.”
And continued to explain how the Bible forbids tattoos and likened tattooed people to heathens:
“Tattooing is heathen practice, it is not a Christian practice, to mar the body that [God] gave you,” he explained. “And you see people that have gone crazy on this, and their bodies are just filled with these things.”
“It is a heathen practice, and it is prohibited in the Old Testament, and so that fact that it’s Jesus doesn’t make a bit of difference.”
I thought Christians ignored the Old Testament? I guess it depends on if you are discussing tattoos or mass genocide.
