Pat Robertson: God shut off D.C. power as a ‘fun’ way to punish Dems for climate lies (via Raw Story )

Television preacher Pat Robertson on Thursday explained that God had caused a brief power outage in Washington, D.C. to mock Senate Democrats who held a late-night discussion about climate change. The office of the Architect of the Capitol said on Wednesday…

Pat Robertson today endorsed a campaign to impeach Eric Holderbecause of the attorney general’s stance on marriage equality.

“I really think the House should impeach Holder,” the700 Clubhostsaid. “There should be a move of impeachment in the House and he should resign.”

“What we’re seeing now more and more is the rights of homosexuals, the practice of homosexuality, sodomy, consensual sodomy, is being raised and elevated above the rights of religious believers and that is terrible,” he said, warning that gay rights is trampling on the First Amendment.

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson criticized Attorney General Eric Holder’s latest announcement on gay rights and defended the efforts of lawmakers in states such as Arizona and Kansas to legalize anti-LGBT discrimination. Robertson unbelievably claimed that such right-to-discriminate bills won’t hurt anybody: “What we’re looking at here is a basic fundamental right of American people to conduct their business in ways they want to as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody else.”

“There’s something un-American about forcing a bakery to bake a wedding cake for a couple they don’t like,” Robertson said. “If they don’t like the people, that’s the way it is.” He said that such businesses are merely following the leadership of the “Soup Nazi.”

“This is ridiculous.”

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again suggested that President Obama is a Muslim and a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood. While speaking to Christian Broadcasting Network commentator Raymond Ibrahim, the televangelist claimed that “Obama got up at the United Nations and said this man is a prophet and he needs to be honored as a prophet and anybody who won’t honor him as a prophet, there’s something wrong with him; we’re talking about Muhammad, he preached hate.”

Obama actually said the following: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

Ibrahim agreed with Robertson’s bogus claim, using it to launch into a defense of Orientalism.

Later in the broadcast, Ibrahim said that “the US is in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood,” while Robertson wondered why Obama is “linked up with the Brotherhood” and “takes leaders of the Brotherhood into the White House for his consultation.”

Pat Robertson: Some Planned Parenthood ‘abortion mills’ have a ‘billion dollars in cash!’ (via Raw Story )

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday lashed out at the Planned Parenthood organization, and said that some chapters had over a billion dollars in cash on hand. During Tuesday’s edition of The 700 Club, Robertson highlighted a former Indiana Planned…

Pat Robertson: ‘Keep your mouth shut’ after having sex with transsexuals (via Raw Story )

Televangelist Pat Robertson has some advice for men who have sex with transsexual women: “Keep your mouth shut.” On Monday’s edition of CBN’s The 700 Club, a viewer told Robertson that he felt guilty because he had never told his wife that he…

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson claimed that the recent cold snap in North America and a ship stuck in Antarctica prove that climate change is nothing but a myth. Of course, both of his assertions are extremely dubious. While the New York Times notes that “97 to 98 percent of working climate scientists accept the evidence for human-induced climate change,” Robertson claimed that the scientists are merely lying to make money…something Robertson would never do.

“It’s getting warmer in Jupiter—and they don’t have any SUVs driving around in Jupiter—it has nothing to do with greenhouse gases it has to do with the action of the sun, there’s either two much sun or not enough sun,” Robertson said. “Think about how much money is involved. It’s money, they’re going to get a river of money.”

“Then you have politicians who want to take control and the progressives always want control, just like with health care, they want control; the EPA in America wants control of all of our energy.”

Pat Robertson told a 700 Club viewer today that she is right to be wary of inviting a lesbian friend over to her home, because that might cause her children to “grow up as lesbians.” Robertson, who has previously claimed that gay people are “trying to recruit more of the straight population,” said that while the viewer should love rather than shun her friend, she should tell her that she doesn’t approve of her “lifestyle.”

“You keep love, you loved her, you were close and your influence may have something significant to her, the idea is you don’t gain anything by shunning,” Robertson said. “But at the same you don’t want your children to grow up as lesbians, that’s what you’re talking about, you don’t want to show them that that’s an acceptable lifestyle for your family.”

He added: “It doesn’t hurt to tell somebody: I love you, we are going to do what we can to be friends if we can. I have my lifestyle, it’s Christian and you have yours, it’s not; I’m sorry we can’t indulge in certain things together.”

In past episodes of the 700 Club, Robertson has alleged that gay people wear dangerous AIDS rings and quipped that gay couples make him want to vomit.

Back in 1997, E.W. Jackson was working for Pat Robertson’s Christian Coalition as the director of the Samaritan Project, a short-lived campaign designed to reach out to minority voters by passing off the Coalition’s political agenda as a “bold and compassionate agenda to combat poverty and restore hope.”

According to the New York Times, Jackson took part in a blessing over Robertson: “With Mr. Robertson kneeling, a half-dozen black pastors blessed him, touching his shoulder. The Rev. Earl Jackson, an African-American preacher from Boston who heads the Samaritan Project, pronounced the scene ‘not just an event but an epiphany.’”

People For the American Way had criticized the Samaritan Project with a campaign called “Don’t be Fooled by the ‘Christian’ Coalition.”

In a 1997 interview on the 700 Club, Robertson and Jackson, who is now the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, discussed the Christian Coalition’s outreach to the black community and criticized PFAW. “People For the American Way needs to try to do a little bit more of the American way, and the American way is a way of faith and that’s something that they just don’t seem to understand,” Jackson said.

(via Pat Robertson Reveals How Low-Carb Diets Violate God’s Principles, Halal Foods Fund Terrorism | Right Wing Watch)

Today’s edition of the 700 Club began with a story about the beneficial effects of a low-carb, high-fat diet. But host Pat Robertson explained that he didn’t believe the positive coverage, arguing that such a diet is not only bad for your health but also “violates the principles that God set down.” 

But that wasn’t the only food-related issue that required Robertson’s wisdom today.

The televangelist later in the program advised against eating halal food, warning that proceeds from such foods go to funding terrorist groups like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The big problem is that President Obama refuses to behave like an American president,” Gingrich said. “This President puts himself above the Constitution and that’s very dangerous for our freedoms.”

 

Newt, didn’t you cause the last government shutdown we had in our nation back in 1995?!
