Quote# 114221

Televangelist Pat Robertson recently repeated his prediction that LGBT rights will provoke God to destroy America’s financial markets, warning “The 700 Club” viewers that God’s wrath is on its way. He claimed that the U.S. is turning into Sodom now that it has “enshrined sodomy into the United States Constitution” and cities like Houston are trying to “force women to go into men’s bathrooms and men to go into women’s bathrooms.”

“Now it’s a constitutional right for sodomites to marry each other,” he lamented, warning that “the wrath of God is revealed against this stuff.” He explained: “I don’t want the wrath of God to hit this country, it’s a great country, I’d like to see America continue strong, but this is one way of weakening it. First of all, we’re going to have this financial collapse. We’re setting up for a massive financial collapse and I think if God is going to hurt this country that’s probably the way he’d do it.”

At that point, a viewer called in and inquired Robertson whether his grim predictions of such a crisis can somehow be averted, to which Robertson gave a somewhat confusing answer: “I believe so, yes, but we need to stop spreading lesbianism and homosexuality in order to achieve that. And the only way to stop the spread of these diseases that are plaguing the country is to make some sort of obvious distinction between gay people and normal, straight people.”

“I personally believe that we must impose a rule on the gay population that would require them to wear specially-colored clothes, for example. I’m thinking we need to go through the Senate with this and we need to make it official. That way, regular people would know that the person wearing the said color is a deviant sodomite and that they need to stay away from them at all cost, as well as keep their children away from their reach,” Robertson opined.

The viewer then interrupted “The 700 Club” host to state that “that sounds awfully like what Nazis did to Jews in the events leading up to World War II,” referring to the fact that Jews in pre-WWII Poland and Germany were made to wear Jewish badges, or yellow badges, which were cloth patches that Jews were ordered to sew on their outer garments to mark them as Jews in public. It served as a badge of shame.

“I don’t believe that,” Robertson quickly became defensive. “I am simply talking about protecting regular people in America, not setting out gays and lesbians as members of the population that should be tortured and slaughtered in concentration camps. Do you understand my point of view here?” the host asked the caller.

“I do,” the caller replied. “But I also understand that you’re trying to do to gay people what the Nazis did to my people more than half a century ago. And I am appalled by it.”

I figured 700 club screened calls so only people that agreed with Pat got though.

I would be terrified to know how many people agree with this idea.

Anonymous caller, hells yeah!

..because gays are trying to get into Robertson's pants? No, Pat, I think you're safe.

... will provoke God to destroy America’s financial markets...

Oh, hell no . . . not another Bush administration.

"Being FORCED to go in the other gender's bathroom"? Too fucking funny dude!

And for the record, I was DARED in Elementary School to go into a mercifully empty boys room!

“I do,” the caller replied. “But I also understand that you’re trying to do to gay people what the Nazis did to my people more than half a century ago. And I am appalled by it.”

Owned.

OK, this is a new low even for Robertson. Scum.

Your ass knew exactly what you meant,Pat.Someone had to call you out on it, didn't they? And I think I can decipher "at all cost" on my own.

You know, Pat, I suspect that one of the original reasons for having Jews wear yellow stars was to protect regular people in Germany, so they could stay away from them at all cost, as well as keep their children away from their reach. The Jews would snatch Christian children off the street in order to use their blood in rituals, after all.

Frank is right, this is from an onion-style satire site.

I never even thought to doubt it, though.

"Why can't the gays be obvious that they're different then us like the niggers and chinks? They're as bad as the spics and dagos"

Someday, he's just gonna go off like that. I actual think were already getting a time delay filter at all times yet even his people think this shit is cool.

11/7/2015 7:37:19 AM



The worst it can happen if women go to men's bathroom and men to women is to rename it. Like your prophecy next year, I'm afraid

“I do,” the caller replied. “But I also understand that you’re trying to do to gay people what the Nazis did to my people more than half a century ago. And I am appalled by it.”

I'd like to shake the hand of this caller, whoever they are.

My take-away from the Houston election debacle is that women's restrooms there don't have stalls, and that parents let their pre-teen kids use public restrooms without supervision. Sounds like a hell-hole.

"if God is going to hurt this country that’s probably the way he’d do it."

Yeah because just like giant fireballs falling from the sky, financial crises can only be summoned as a divine retribution. Not like they happen periodically ...

On the bright side, the caller did restore some of my faith in humanity.

It was a matter of time before Christofascists showed their true face.

Although Pat Robertson is not a Christian, this is not such a bad idea. As a side note, I wonder why a Jew would be calling a "Christian" TV show.

@Jerry
Imitating the Nazis is 'not such a bad idea'?

hey admins, this is BS, I suggest you remove it as it's from a satire site and he never said it.

However, fuck you Pat. Just to make clear my dislike of the POS.

One can see why TBNUK heavily edit the "700 Club" editions shown on their channel.

Can you say 'OFCOM', Patty-boy? I know you can.

The 1st Amendment has no jurisdiction here in the UK. Jan Crouch realises that, thus the edits to any & all US programmes shown on their digital Freeview channel here in the UK.

Because perish the thought that, due to their editors fucking up, complaints were made to OFCOM, they were upheld, and TBNUK were heavily fined, nay had their licence revoked & their frequencies offered to the highest bidder; say... 'BabeStation': the late night softcore porn phone chat channels; three out of the four on air are theirs, and a fourth one would aid that small part of the monolithic porn industry financially.

Then Jan - as far as the UK is concerned - wouldn't even have a ghetto left. As they were exterminated; the Final Solution to the Fundie Problem.

So many of you fundies say that the porn industry is controlled by teh J00z, do you not...?! [/mega-Karma]

OFCOM regulations ensure that anything remotely homophobic on TBNUK doesn't have the right to exist, lest Jan Crouch loses that channel's frequencies. Further proof that Political Correctness is good. Political Correctness works. [/Gordon Gekko]

Fundie religion being told what to do by the people, via legislation. Good.

And there's less than fuck all you can do about it, Patty-boy. We Brits have more than every right in the world - as far as the UK is concerned - to censor you. All it takes is just one complaint to OFCOM, o Jan, and you don't even have a voice in my country, Pat...! >:D

@Muslim Jerry

Not exactly a Professor of Theology, are you? Otherwise you'd know of the concept of the 'Abrahamic Religions': Judaism, Islam & Christianity share the same deity.

Know this: Romans 11:26-32 - even in your precious QJV - states that all Jews, religious or not, are going to Heaven; bypassing John `14:6, and your J-boy - who is himself Jewish. Jews don't recognise your Jesus as their 'Messiah', but they're Saved: they are the 'Elect', not you & all your Gentile ilk (you don't obey all the laws in Leviticus - despite your death-grip upone one tiny titbit in particular to justify your bigotries, therefore...!); Muslims revere 'Isa, an important prophet in Islam. 'Isa: The Arabic for Jesus. [/mega-paradox] (PROTIP: Abraham - Ibrahim; Gabriel - Jibril, in the Quran)


So many fundie Christains - including no doubt those like you: 'Biblical Christians' whose QJV mentions the John 14:6-destroying Romans 11:26-32 - 'Support Israel'. As does Pat Robertson. Thus is your question answered. As is your 'argument' also completely annihilated.

That list of True Christians™ of yours must be getting ever shorter then. Therefore your country isn't a 'Christian Nation', so indeed: where is your God now...?! >:D

OK, how can I retract my 'scum' comment?

11/7/2015 3:29:27 PM

You gotta wonder how many people would agree with this, even if it is satire.
