I've worked with the elderly and this man should be playing some bingo with a drool bib accessory, not hosting a television show. Thanks RWW.
Who's more bat-sh## crazy, the people who watch Pat Robertson or the people who support Pat Robertson? I've got to think this is a neck and neck race -- but to the bottom of human intelligence.
He's supported by followers. Are they all hearing impaired and just like to see lips flap in the wind? Are they part of a secret cabal of the insane and enjoy waiting with baited breath for the men in white coats to put him in a straight jacket and bring him to the asylum? Or are they really a group of extremely intellectual people who are punking the rest of us. Kind of a Colbert Report treatment but of society as a whole? If that's the case, they've done a great job.
Going with the punking choice, I've found, courtesy of The Daily Beast, this promo (highlights) for the upcoming Pat Robertson Las Vegas Revival Spectacular -- Halloween on Ice. The spectacular promises to make it's way into your heart with eight spooky re-enactment tales of evil like these -- all done on ice skates:
Here's how Anderson Cooper described Televangelist Pat Robertson:
"He's sort of like that elderly relative who you only see at Thanksgiving, doesn't get out of bed much, and he's sitting around the table and suddenly blurts out nonsensical sentences in between chewing on soft foods."
And then he proceeded to show clip after clip of Robertson atrocities.
Did I mention that this is the same Pat Robertson, former Chairman of the Board of the cable network The Family Channel, where I worked as a TV comedy writer? And that he censored one of my jokes because I used the words "toilet paper"? True story. And the joke wasn't about anything remotely "off color."
However, everything Robertson said in the above video is beyond "off color," yet nobody censored a word. Mocked, yes. Censored, no.
Pat Robertson makes me wish I had a "Vomit" button for this and every other video of his despicable upchuckitude that we've ever posted here. Unfortunately, as he spewed below, "they don't give you that option."
However, we do have the option to respond.
RWW Blog (RightWingWatch) provided the above video of Pat Bigotson explaining to his devotees why Christians shouldn’t “Like” (as in, the Facebook "Like" option) images of loving same-sex couples expressing their mutual affection for each other.
He'd prefer a "Vomit" icon instead.
Clearly, he fervently believes in
rehashed familiar, heartfelt messages like "love thy neighbor," "do unto others," and all that other Golden Rule-y, compassionate, welcoming Bible advice that he swearstogod he lives by... religiously.
Maybe he should consider pulling an Oprah and lavishing his flock with generous quantities of Compazine.
What you’re saying is, “Yes, I like this kind of thing.” You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing. You “Like” that. Well, that makes me want to throw up. To me, I would punch “Vomit,” not “Like”… They don’t give you that option on Facebook.
No, but after hearing what Robertson had to say, we gladly give you that option here at TPC:

I say, keep it up guys. Keep on recruiting for the bad guys while you root to undermine education, science and equal rights.

Pat Robertson warns that our clothes could have demons attached to them, better to pray over them.
On the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson cautioned his audience, saying that demons can attach themselves to material goods and therefore it’s not a bad idea to rebuke them before bringing them into your home. Yes, don’t we all have a picture of ourselves wearing ‘that’ sweater.
A viewer asked Robertson whether she should follow her mother’s recommendation to pray away demonic spirits over her secondhand sweaters.
Right Wing Watch reports, “Robertson recounted a story about “a witch who had prayed over a particular ring and asked for a spirit to come into it, and this Philippine girl was so attached to this ring, she had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was. Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects, the answer is yes,” Robertson said.
Robertson added that people don’t have to concern themselves over whether every item they purchase is possessed by demons, but he added: “Hey, it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”
