Pat Robertson's recent remarks

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Oh Pat Robertson's at it again! .

post #2 of 26
Robertson has made controversial statements in the past. In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device. He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

So why does anyone pay attention to what he says anyway? Sounds like a crack-pot to me.

As a Christian I can say, without any reservations, that he is not following one of the two primary commandments: "Love your neighbor as yourself".

I keep up with him from time-to-time (know your enemy!) and I can tell you that his Christian Coalition is anything but

He is exercising his right of free speech. We may not agree with him but he has every right, doesn't he?

Yes, but isn't that a bit hypocritical? Claiming to be a "Christian" yet publically calling for another's assasination?

Sure it is, it would be interesting to see how he would answer that question.

Pat Robertson is a nutjob, and why anyone follows, i.e. believes, what he says is just beyond me! He gives conservatives and Christians a bad name!!

Obviously the man can say what he wants to say and I defend his right to say it, but I also have the right to say that he has so obviously been corrupted by satan that I can't even imagine how other Christians can buy into his act.

His right to free speech doesn't eliminate him from being the subject in "IMO."

As far as his comments, consider the source.

I always thought he was satan's minion. I mean how far can you twist christianity and still call it christianity?
post #11 of 26
This is quite an unfortunate statement from him.

How sad that this man can even voice such stupid, immoral thoughts. Mr. Robertson would be better served if he would humble his heart & listen to other preachers, as well as maybe do some quiet, receptive reading in his Bible...And maybe renew himself and become a peacemaker. As Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the Sons of God" (Matt.5:9)

How I wish more people in today's society believed that as well!!!

Robertson is a Christian in his eyes only. No Chrsitian - regardless of denomiation - would say such a thing and think it was OK. Personally, I think the man may have delusions.

The question to ask him is, "would Jesus like these remarks of yours, Pat"

It is illegal to make those kinds of remarks about our own president- so is it actually legal to offer a death threat for another president? Obviously he didn't say, "I personally am going to murder the president" but there have been Klan members in the US arrested for advocating murders that their followers actually end up doing.

That's a good point - I do hope that someone else has pointed out that very thing to Mr. Robertson.

Oh lord, I had to do a double-take when I read that earlier today.
He's such a wack. If he were some random crazy person, this wouldn't be such a big deal, but LOTS of people listen to this guy.... Scary, if you ask me.

EXCELLENT point.
The problem is, no one ever does....

The man is drunk with power, and it has nothing to do with the power of God. I have thought for years he is a corrupt and manipulative man who is after only one thing- ok two- power and money. It will be interesting when he finally does leave this earth just how much they find he has stashed away moneywise for all his causes- He is hypnotic to the senior citizens and preys on the weak-minded. He is not after altar calls, he is a wallet- call minister

Ohhh! I know! He MUST be my father's long lost twin! Sorry, I had to

As you all know how twisted this man is, try having someone calling you at least 6 times a day who has the same thoughts and ideas

Now on a more serious note... This is really disgusting, sadly disgusting. I emphasize sadly because I feel badly for his "prey" There will always be people making a bad name for others of their faith, race, social just about anything, ect but this one really gets to me. I have to live it (and not even live WITH it) and know it on a daily basis. Sadly.

What is truly scary about people like Robertson, is that people living in foreign countries who see him as a religious leader in our country, rather than the nutjob that he actually is, may think that his views represent the views of the general population. How long did a lot of people in the U.S. think that people of Islamic faith were all terrorists (and still do)? The propoganda that can be propped up around his statements can only add to the hatred in the world against the U.S.

I believe there is a law in our country to the effect that public statements such as his are considered acts of terrorism and he could be arrested and convicted for them. I hope someone in the state department takes the initiative to do this. Really, what was the Patriot Act all about anyway?

Nah, the government only seems to care if it's non-Christian religious leaders who say that kind of stuff.

Now, if he were...oh, let's say, Muslim...he would probably be deported. I just love state-sponsored racism, don't you all?

I heard he said he is "sorry". He said "take out" didn't necessarily mean assisinate. Uh huhhhh
I think he has dug his last hole.

The Vice President of Venezuela said that they might pursue charges against Robertson. I definately take back what I said about defending his right to say what he did- what the man did was clearly illegal. He can think Chavez is the biggest jerk in the universe- but he can't promote the death of a president.

Pat's just a nut anyway. I just hope these countries see that he's just some radio personality on a power trip. I don't know what he was thinking but I hope some one does something about him before he does something really stupid!
