Televangelist Pat Robertson on the 700 Club today responded to a news story about the conflict in Mali with a rant against Islam, calling the faith a “religion of chaos” that is almost “demonic” — before saying that he doesn’t consider Islam a religion at all but “an economic and political system with a religious veneer.” Robertson has previously claimed that “Islam is not a religion” but the Antichrist that is akin to Nazism and fascism.
Televangelist Pat Robertson is dishing out more useful maritalandfamilyadvice to 700 Club viewers, including one who asked how to rekindle the relationship between his parents. In a question to Robertson, “Maxim” said that he “noticed that there has been a change in my father’s behavior” as he “spends too much time at the computer playing a war game,” which is making his mom feel alone. After suggesting that Maxim bring his parents to a “romantic resort,” Robertson promptly blamed the mother.
“You know it may be your mom isn’t as sweet as you think she is, she may be hard-nosed,” Robertson said. “It’s easy to blame the mother.”
The “War on Christmas” has arrived and the 700 Club is doing all it can to stoke fears that Christmas may cease to exist. Host Pat Robertson warned that “the Grinch is trying to steal our holiday” as “miserable” atheists “want to steal your holiday away from you” simply because they can’t stand the joy of Christmas. “Atheists don’t like our happiness, they don’t want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable,” he said. “They’re miserable so they want you to be miserable.”
“Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her,” Robertson responded. “This man’s got to stand up to her and he can’t let her get away with this stuff,” Robertson continued, “I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.”
He later said the woman is a “rebellious child” and pondered if she has psychological problems. Robertson told the viewer that since he “can’t divorce her according to the Scripture, so I say: move to Saudi Arabia.”
From the 09.10.2012 edition of CBN’s The 700 Club:
The group One Million Moms has called for a boycott of the ABC Family Channel over an allegedly “anti-family” show being produced by singer Jennifer Lopez.
“Obviously, ABC has lost their minds,” the group said in a statement. “They haven’t let up so neither will we. ABC’s Family Channel has several anti-family programs, and they are planning on adding to that growing list.”
ABC’s The Fosters is a hour-long drama about two mothers raising a mix of foster and biological kids.
One Million Moms said that adoption was “wonderful” but accused the show of “attempting to redefine marriage.”
The organization, which is a part of the American Family Association, urged its members to boycott the show and ABC Family’s sponsors. They hope to stop the show “dead in it its tracks.”
What makes it even more hypocritical is that the very same channel that OMM are complaining about the “anti-family” shows, it airs the disgusting propaganda show called The 700 Club. And in a twist of irony, CBN used to own ABC Family as well.
Yesterday on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson said that activists who don’t want Chick-fil-A on their college campus due to the company’s anti-gay advocacy should keep quiet: “I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I’m saying; until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth.”
Erick Stackelbeck, the sports reported turned terrorism analyst for the Christian Broadcasting Netowrk, hosted a segment on the 700 Club today looking into how “political correctness takes over in mainstream reporting on Islamic terrorism.” Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) told Stackelbeck that “our media is refusing to tell the story” about Islamic extremists because the media “come from a decidedly leftist worldview and a secular—almost an anti-secular in a way—because they’ve embraced such a radical worldview and they impose that filter through every subject they touch.”
Bachmann: The world is being turned upside down because of radical Islam and our media is refusing to tell the story…. They come from a decidedly leftist worldview and a secular—almost an anti-secular in a way—because they’ve embraced such a radical worldview and they impose that filter through every subject they touch.”
From the 04.16.2012 edition of CBN’s The 700 Club:
Televangelist Pat Robertson, who famously referred to non-Christians as “termites,” on the 700 Clubtoday likened people who aren’t Christians to a “virus.” Following a report on the growing Muslim population in Europe, Robertson said “the antibody to these false religions have been vibrant Christianity,” lamenting that “our elites have turned against the founding principles that gave us our freedom, why? Because they don’t want to be Christian.”
Today on the 700 Club a woman asked Pat Robertson whether it was appropriate for her to serve as a bridesmaid or even attend her lesbian sister’s wedding to another woman. Robertson, afierceopponentofgayrights, demanded the woman take no party in the ceremony. He cited Romans 1, without giving its cultural and historical context, to argue that God gave gays and lesbians up to do “evil things with their own bodies.” “If she doesn’t like it, if that breaks the union between you,” Robertson said, “that’s tough luck.”
ConservativesjustseemtolovecallingPresidentObamaadictator, as today on the 700 Clubtelevangelist Pat Robertson repeated his claim that Obama is building a dictatorship. Robertson argued Obama “doesn’t care about the real management of the United States government” but only wants to win re-election and “impose a so-called progressive agenda upon America.” “He wants to take control of every aspect of this nation by the federal government,” Robertson said, “If you want a dictatorship, then that’s the way to get it because he’s giving it to you.”
Tamara Lowe, a frequent guest on “The 700 Club” and author of the book Get Motivated, and her husband Peter are in the midst of an acrimonious divorce that just got uglier: in court documents, Peter accused Tamara and her new boyfriend of stealing his porn.
According to south Florida website Gossip Extra, the Christian motivation speaker and her spouse are on the verge of closing their marriage of 24 years.
In a motion filed to the court, Peter Lowe claimed Tamara’s new boyfriend and two other men stole items from his Miami house while he was in Las Vegas, including porn videos. Other items reported as missing include photos, five laptops, a desktop and boxes of documents. Lawyers from Tamara Lowe claimed that their client returned all of her husband’s items.
Today on The 700 Club, Pat Robertson faced a question from a viewer who wondered about the ethicality of his church’s haunted house event, which uses Halloween to reach the “unsaved community.” Robertson condemned the church and said that Christians shouldn’t celebrate the holiday because “Halloween is Satan’s night, it’s the night for the devil.” This wouldn’t be the first time the Christian Broadcasting Network targeted Halloween. Apostle Kimberly Daniels, who now serves on the Jacksonville City Council, wrote a long screed on the CBN website condemning the holiday for its “occult roots.” She claims that demonic curses from witches are passed through Halloween candy and that traditional activities include “sex with demons,” “orgies” and “sacrificing babies,” among others.
Baloney, Mr. Robberson. Christian Churches nowadays celebrate Halloween.
