I love Pat Robertson so goddamn much – A WTFaith Quickie

Every time Pat Robertson talks, it’s my birthday.

The above link is a CNN religion blog article about Patty Rob’s “Top 10” most controversial quotes. While I remember this one from my mis-spent pagan youth. . .

“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

. . . I got great joy out of some of the gems I was exposed to for the first time.

Like this one!

“Many of those people involved in Adolf Hitler were Satanists. Many were homosexuals. The two things seem to go together.”

Clealry this man is a master of social science. He has more facts that Xerox.

Read the article, then comment with your favorite Patty Rob quote, and why! And if you actually, non-sarchastically love Pat Robertson, could you. . . maybe. . . maybe explain that to me, a little?

    I love the true story bit in the Haiti comment. Because that’s what that story needed. I didn’t believe it at first, but then he swept all my doubt away in those two words that I thought were trademarked by Barney Stinson, after he dragged to court the little leprichaun that kept talking about how his trained dolphins were mining the Atlantic Ocean and kept using his catch phrase. True story.

    Funny, I also liked the bit on Haitian history.

    History lessons that involve “you know” and “and whatever” and “Ok, it’s a deal” are the only accounts I pay attention to.

    Impossible to decide, but I think that the Hitler quote is my favorite for its sheer lack of grammatical sense.

    [Snooty judging face] And yes, I love him, because that’s what Jesus would do. [/snooty judging face]

    In all seriousness, though, I’ve been convicted lately to sincerely love guys like this, unconditionally, without regard to what he says or whether he means it or whether he’s a crazy old coot that nobody listens to. It’s a lot harder than loving them gays and junkies and smelly homeless guys.

    I’m in Veronica’s vicinity. I dislike hate speech, and Pat’s a ruling authority in that field… but people occasionally hear him say something good that changes their lives. It weirds me out, but so be it.

    His comments on having an Alzheimer’s-stricken wife made me want to push my vomit button.
