Vegas Revival Spectacular -- Pat Robertson -- Halloween On Ice


I'm going crazy

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:


VIDEO-- Anderson Cooper: Pat Robertson's like "elderly relative who doesn't get out of bed much, blurts out nonsensical sentences"


pat robertson

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.

VIDEO: Pat Robertson wishes Facebook had a "Vomit" button for pictures of gay couples


pat robertson delete

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.

Pat Robertson:

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:

"A Week of Upchucks: Keep on recruiting for bad guys while you root to undermine education, science, equal rights"


gop fail 3Please welcome back guest blogger K.C. Boyd. You might remember her from her earlier posts:

A Week of Upchucks

By K. C. Boyd

 “Pro-Life” Upchucking

  • Add Ohio’s to the ever-growing list of states whose House voted to defund Planned Parenthood.
  • Senator Brownback signed House Bill 2253 this week. Scribbled at the top of his marked up copy of this “Pro-Life Protections Act,” were the words Jesus & Mary, with “Pro-Life” further down in the margins. Good to confirm in writing that legislators really do govern by Sharia the Bible. After North Dakota, the Kansas bill is second to define life as beginning at conception.

Beyond Upchuck: Second child of faith-healing couple dies after no medical care

  • With the death of an 8-month old baby resulting from Fundamentalist Christians putting faith over science, this is well beyond your average upchuck. When you become a parent, you are responsible for your children’s health and welfare, and that includes after the child is born. If a mother or father chooses God over medicine for themselves, that’s their choice, and their problem. But to sit by and pray while their 8-month baby struggles for days with severe diarrhea and breathing problems, such negligence is criminal (even more so, this being their second child to have died from prayerful neglect.)
  • Meanwhile, out in Oklahoma, self-proclaimed pro-lifers, more accurately described as pro-negligence once the baby is born, have decided that public education’ isn’t all that important or necessary. In line with the ‘drown-it-in-the-bathtub’ meme, Kansas’ governor and legislators have enacted public school cuts that are among nation's highest and which, over time, may well destroy public education, as we know it. At the same time, the goodly legislators are looking for ways to cut taxes (for the rich.)

Schaudenfreude Upchuck

  • Things aren’t looking too promising for a successful GOP’ wooing of the LGBT community. Despite the spoken desire by one wing of the party to at least appear more gay-friendly, the RNC couldn’t help caving to the Rebiblicans’ that make up its base. At the RNC April meeting in Los Angeles, The GOP confirmed that they cannot and will not change their platform when it comes to gay marriage. Why schaudenfreude, you ask? Quite frankly because this upchucker loves nothing more than to see than the GOP engage in all manner of self-sabotage.

Dino Upchuck

  • Ken Ham is smiling these days thanks to a deal his Answers in Genesis’ ad agency made to screen an animated Creation Museum commercial during previews at each of the 458 theaters showing the newly released Jurassic Park 3-D movie. Not only that but these theaters will also continuously loop said commercial in their lobbies, exposing evermore young people to the Big Lie.

And finally, heading over to the land of whack job Upchucks

  • Ann Coulter exercised her right to persecute Muslims on Fox (cough) News when she stated that the Boston bombing suspect's wife should be in prison for wearing a hijab. Talk about denying a woman’s rights - - someone needs to sew her mouth permanently shut.
  • Pat Robertson, never one to disappoint averred that "Islam is to blame for not only the Boston Marathon bombing, but terrorism around the world.” Comparing 'Evil' Islam To Nazism, Robertson is sure to have ruffled the feathers of many a future would-be terrorist.
  • Lastly there’s the Beckster’s continued accusations of a dreamt–up government cover-up with regards to the Marathon bombing. Informed by what can only be a super-duper top-secret source, Beck accuses the Dems of hiding “damning evidence” that a Saudi National was involved in the Boston bombing. Of course we know he’s a nutcase but something that most folks aren’t aware of is that Homeland Security Chairman Michael T. McCaul, Jeff Duncan, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, Peter King and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, Candice Miller wrote to Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano requesting an immediate classified debriefing on the Saudi whose identity is said to be hidden and who the government instantly spirited out of the country/ This can’t help but make one remember when Bush and Co. really did whisk the Bin Laden family out of the country just after 9/11, well before private or commercial planes were permitted back in the air.

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

We’ll see you in 2014.

Exorcise Those Yard Sale Clothing Demons! Says Pat Robertson



(A cross-post from our friend Anomaly100 at FreakOutNation.) Thanks, Anomaly!

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.”
