Brenda, a concerned mother, wrote into the 700 Club to ask Pat Robertson for some insight on her daughter’s afterlife, and whether or not she was definitely going to hell for living with a boyfriend who had yet to finalize his divorce.
“My daughter is a Christian and a good person. She lives with her boyfriend and plans on marriage, but he has to get a divorce first. Will they go to hell for this sin?”
The answer, according to Robertson, was a resounding YES! Because it’s adultery and thus the exact same thing as being an axe murderer. Keep reading »
On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson received a phone call from a viewer asking him to weigh in on her church’s policy of forbidding members from dating or marrying anybody, which has made said members very frustrated because they are all getting older and would prefer not to die alone.
Is she a Shaker? Is it some kind of cult? We don’t know! And the reason we do not know is because instead of making sure that this woman is not in some bizarre cult, Pat Robertson decided to relate this to the gays, and how they and this church will go extinct from not reproducing. As one does, when one is Pat Robertson. Keep reading »
“The romance is obviously going out of the marriage. You know, it may be your mom isn’t as sweet as you think she is; she may be kind of hard-nosed.
A woman came to a preacher I know — it’s so funny. She was awful looking. Her hair was all torn up, she was overweight and looked terrible. And she said, ‘Oh, Reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.’ And the preacher looked at her and he said, ‘Madam, if I were married to you, I’d start to drink too.’”
– Priceless relationship tips from televangelist Pat Robertson on “The 700 Club,” trying to help a 17-year-old who is concerned his father is ignoring his mother. I think we should give Robertson his own column on The Frisky, so he can share his unique perspective on love with us all. Amelia, what sort of budget do we have for this? [Queerty]
This guy. This fuckin’ guy. Right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson has made it clear that he does not blame David Petraeus for the extramarital affair that led him to resign from his postion as director of the CIA. No, Robertson says his mistress/biographer Paula Broadwell is the one at fault, implying that she initiated the affair (though there has been no evidence to support that) and that Petraeus was unable to resist her advances. Speaking on his show “The 700 Club,” his show, Robertson excused Petraeus’ conduct as understandable because “the man’s off in a foreign land and he’s lonely and here’s a good-looking lady throwing herself at him. He’s a man.” Putting aside the fact that Robertson is just making stuff up (we don’t know who threw themselves as whom), the idea that any man, particularly a four-star general, is too weak to resist the charms of a woman and is therefore not to blame for succumbing to those temptations is utterly ridiculous. For the record, I don’t care that Petraeus had an affair (although if there was a breach in national security, that’s a whole other issue) and I certainly don’t think it’s worth our time debating who is to “blame” for two adults having consensual sex. Both of them, end of story. Moving on now. [Think Progress]
You are never going to believe this, dear readers, but some women like porn—a bit of news that came as a major shock to Pat Robertson. “I mean, the thing that shocks me—shocks me—we always thought this was a male thing. A boy thing. A guy thing,” Robertson says in a cringe-worthy “700 Club” clip spotted by Right Wing Watch and The New York Post.
“While most people think of pornography as something men struggle with, a third of the millions of Americans who watch porn are … women! And they’re getting addicted to it!” Roberston went on, as his female co-host strove valiantly to pretend that she, too, was shocked by this revelation. Read more…
