Good Old Pat

Pat Robertson, the man who said "Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals -- the two things seem to go together."
(Pat Robertson, The 700 Club television program, January 21, 1993). The man that thinks feminism is a promoter of adultery, lesbianism, killing of children, and the practice of witchcraft. Good old Pat's done it again. He's spoken his mind, he's told everyone what's going on inside that devilish little brain of his. And, as usual, made it clear that he's a crazy, paranoid, stupid christian. He's called for the US goverment to assasinate Hugo Chavez.

(No, I am not copying this post from anyone, I heard this over NPR. My source for the quotes is http://www.positiveatheism.org/hist/quotes/revpat.htm. I feel I have to say this becuase Seth, being Seth, tends to act like himself.)

Pat, on his television show The 700 Club, said that, since the goverment was already planning it, we should just go ahead and kill the Venezuelan president. The goverment denied Pat's claims that they were in the proccess of planning an assassination, and, I'm paraphrasing here, essentially said that he was insane.

Okydoky, now we see good old Pat's lost his marbles. No? Well, just in case, here are a few more quotes:
"I am absolutely persuaded one of the reasons so many lesbians are at the forefront of the pro-choice movement is because being a mother is the unique characteristic of womanhood, and these lesbians will never be mothers naturally, so they don't want anybody else to have that privilege either."
(Pat Robertson, on The 700 Club television program, May 28, 1993).
He he he, kinda reminiscent of the intelligence of a nat, isn't it?
Here's another one:
"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into [our] institutions [today] are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have.... The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation."
(Pat Robertson, New York Magazine, August 18, 1986).
Ok, here what scary about this, he's serious.

Mr. Robertson is insane. I'm not infering anything, I'm not acting on a biast, I'm not looking for things that aren't there, I'm just looking at his quotes, I'm looking at what he's said, and it's crazy. Period.

The poverty-stricken Robertson's young wife, unsuccessfully pleading with him to return from a month-long religious camping retreat, Dede talks to Pat about it:

Dede: "Pat, I've tried to adjust to this 'saved' jag you're on, but you've become a fanatic. All you do is read that Bible all day and sit around and talk to Jesus. I'm a nurse. I recognize schizoid tendencies when I see them, and I think you're sick. It's just not normal for a man to walk out on his wife and leave her with a small child when she's expecting a baby any minute -- while he goes off into the woods to talk to God. God doesn't tell people to do things like that. At least, my God doesn't."
Pat: "I can't leave. God will take care of you."
(Dede and Pat Robertson, quoted from Robert Boston, The Most Dangerous Man in America, pp. 25-26.).

Crazy. Period.

Good post. Pat Robertson is a menace. Every time I think he's sunk to a new low, he seems to top it.

And the best part is that he now is saying that he never said that he wanted that guy to be "assasinated".
