The slaves in Haiti revolted over Two hundred years ago. Pat is just saying that it is Gods will that their ancestor should pay for the heresy of that abomination. He is a big player in the conservative base.

So when America revolted against the English we must have made a pact with the devil. Does the CC have anyone with a brain running it.

Yeah, 200 years ago some people allegedly made some pact with the devil and God is just getting around to punishing them even though none of the people that did it have been alive for 150 years and Haiti is now 96% Christian. Makes sense to me.

Pat has hurt many thousands over the years...When my Mom was a sickly, elderly lady, I went to her home back east to help her and Pat's people called her nightly for more contributions...My response to them was X-rated...These elderly people are preyed upon by people like Pat because they fear their entry into heaven...It is quite sad and cruel IMO...

Thats what pisses me off. One asshole says something like that and the entire world thinks thats how we all feel. Its no wonder 75% of the world hates us.
If it was any one else on T.V. or radio they'd be nutted, but why not Pat the sack?
He is worse than Hittler, because Hittler didn't use a Bible to spread hate.

"Pat Robertson is the personification of all that is wrong with Evangelical Christianity."

Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Matthew 22:36-40

You know Jesus was a fairly daring and courageous soul, having dinner with Matthew Levi, the hated tax collector, oh and Jesus went after the men ready to stone the woman caught in adultery, not the "adulteress"...yes, and I really like what Jesus had to say about those who profess to follow God but turn around and ignore the widows and the poor. The pharisees even had private entrances to and from the main temple in Jerusalem so as to avoid the common folk. His words still stand today, read it above. The Bible actually says alot of different things than is being espoused by some today. What is highly interesting is that Jesus was not even a Christian! He was a Jew, who even kept Sabbath...which never changed either..."I came not to CHANGE the law but to fulfill it." Fact remains who has the right to represent Him on earth when they can't even abide by his teachings???

Look at the Ten Commandments. It's simple, the first few talk about your relationship with God and the remainder about your relationship with your neighbor. In Matthew 22 Jesus merely summed it up. Nothing has changed. I think some people want to do away with that law so they can freely hate "Haitians who have made a pact with the Devil." Oh, but we are saved by grace...copout! We are accountable as that law was made for man because he obviously needed some direction and still fights it even when it is right in front of his nose.

Oh, your neighbor is the person next door? I don't think so....it's the person lying under the rubble in the streets of Port Au Prince, perhaps?

Pat Robertson is a frightened old man who confuses myth with truth. Because his "truth" won't accommodate scientific reasoning and observation he must find some other way to explain these horrible events. It's his way of reassuring himself that he is heaven bound. After all, if nothing bad happens to him it must be because God smiles down upon him. The closer he gets to death the harder he'll hold on to this fiction. It's sad and pathetic but I have no sympathy for him.

What is sadder yet Wendy is that he doesn't need sympathy or compassion or even understanding - if he wanted any of those things, he would show them for others. What he really wants is people's money, and he gets that in droves. For those who point out his organization's charitable operations, I'd point to the tax code. I have to wonder if Pat Robertson would bother with doing any charitable works without the IRS provisions that REQUIRE non-profits to actually do some good.

Actually I think it is pretty much the person next door. I believe Jesus would've been far more interested in your day-to-day relationships than with whether you wrote a check every now and again to the Red Cross. Our service in his name is supposed to be very personal. I don't believe it's something that can be delegated to professional service organizations or the government.

That's not to say it's not also a good work to donate to relief efforts in far off places. But from my understanding, our most important work is the work placed right in front of us.

Anywho, its interesting to watch everyone stretch to view Evangelicals through the prism of Pat Robertson. The guy obviously jumped the shark a long time ago. It seems like a time-honored practice to take a kook like him and strap him to some group of people (ie Rush Limbaugh) you don't like in order to discredit them all.

But despite what's been said here, I don't ever remember (on mc.com) anyone ever defending anything Pat Robertson ever said.

Just wait 'til I start bringing up that all Democrats are really kinda like John Edwards.

Karma will win in the end. NO ONE can do the things he's done and say the things he's said and walk away unscathed. Just wait, when something does happen, and it inevitably will, he'll say he doesn't know why. He's lived his life in pure service to God. Hmmm..wonder about any of his past ancestors. What are the odds that everyone of them was perfect just like Pat?

For the record, I do not consider Pat Robertson a Christian. He may claim to be but he is not. He reflects badly on greedy, self-centered, pandering politicians, not Christians, because that is what he is.

When they asked for prayers at Mass tonight in my parish I was tempted to say "Let us pray for the Reverend Pat Robertson who will be undergoing surgery soon to remove a body part from a certain orifice!".

However, I was sitting next to my mother and she would have killed me.

Pat Robertson's world "views" amuse me in terms of their loonieness.. He ranks right up there with Jack Van Impe. Sadly there are those who take his "Gospel" to heart.

In a related question, does anybody else think Pat Robertson's voice sounds like somebody who needs to register with the police? It just creeps me out.

A few more Patisms. Anyone see a trend?

The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.

[Planned Parenthood] is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism -- everything that the Bible condemns.

NOW is saying that in order to be a woman, you've got to be a lesbian.

I am absolutely persuaded one of the reasons so many lesbians are at the forefront of the pro-choice movement is because being a mother is the unique characteristic of womanhood, and these lesbians will never be mothers naturally, so they don't want anybody else to have that privilege either.
