Question with 4 notes
Anonymous asked: So what do you think of Pat Robertson? Seems to me more and more he's just losing it.
I really don’t understand why so many people still listen to that senile old man. He often says some of the most outright idiotic and offensive statements as if his “faith” gives him an excuse to get away with such things. He tries to disguise his racism, misogyny, and general contempt for the world in a wrap of Christian piety. I would think even most Christians would denounce more than half of what dribbles out of his mouth.
I did hear not long ago he made a statement supporting the legalization of marijuana. This is something personally I would strongly agree with. For every small gem that I come across of his that I may agree with I find many more that either shock or disturb me. I actually did a quick search of his name to see if there was anything recent from him. The most current article I came across was just a few hours ago entitled “Pat Robertson believes Peyton Manning should get hurt this year”. I mean, really? Really? Pat Robertson is wishing an injury on someone simply because they got picked up by a football team? He really needs to be pushed in to retirement, if not down a flight of stairs.
