So, apparently, the ‘Science Guy’ is all excited about Pat Robertson’s latest blatherings (though why anyone is loony enough to think Pat Robertson a hero of any sort is a mystery to me). This led Mr Science, for whatever reason, to tweet his joy, suggesting Robertson’s followers should join him. Naturally the HuffPo wet itself in delight and retweeted the Science person’s misguided opinion.
I replied to both that the fact is, Pat Robertson’s ‘followers’ should be following Jesus, not him.
And now, the wry twist. It seems that Pat Robertson has followers who blindly align themselves to whatever views he holds, as the penultimate tweet in the series from the screenshot below shows:
If Mr Baugh is right, then Pat Robertson’s ‘followers’ are worse off than I thought and in fact they should be much more concerned with their souls than with creationism or anything else.
If Pat Robertson got on his 700 Club and made the claims that Oliver Stone has, about Sandy being ‘punishment’ for something or other, people everywhere would be on him like white on rice. So where’s the derision of Oliver Stone? Or are Hollywood sorts exempt?
Ever-honest director and author Oliver Stone stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to discuss Barack Obama’s presidency, climate change and his new book and documentary series, “The Untold History of the United States.” Stone is an equal opportunity critic, arguing that neither Obama nor Mitt Romney tackled climate change in a substantive way. “I was a little disappointed at the third debate when neither of them talked about climate control and the nature of the situation on Earth,” Stone said. “I think there’s kind of a weird statement coming right after … this is a punishment … Mother Nature cannot be ignored. That’s all I thought about.”
Oliver Stone, Hollywood’s own Pat Robertson. Let the snark commence. (But I won’t hold my breath).
Pat Robertson, the televangelist behind Christian Broadcasting Network’s “The 700 Club,” doubled down on an opinion he had expressed on his show for years now. “I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Robertson told the Times. “I’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.”
You know, I’ve always thought people who watched Pat Robertson and his 666 club were on something. They have to be don’t they. And he has to be smokin’ a fattie (is that the way the kids say it? All the potheads I know are in jail so I can’t ask them) - in spite of his claims to the contrary- to say the worse-than-moronic stupidity he spouts.
It all makes sense now- Pat’s a long time pot-head and now he’s coming ‘out of the pot-closet’. That or he’s sold out to culture. Or both.
Pat Robertson is being the buffoon again, calling the Twilight films ‘demonic’ and ‘evil’. No, Pat, they aren’t that- they aren’t good enough to be that. They’re much worse: they’re badly acted!
But that doesn’t mean the devil is in them Pat- and you know why? Because they’re FICTIONAL. They’re made up. They aren’t real beings. They’re pretend!
Pat, shouldn’t you be more concerned with what’s real than what’s made up? Why don’t you ever opine about things that matter like the oppression and murder of the people in Syria or the mistreatment of the Palestinians? Why don’t you talk about American poverty?
In other words, Pat, why are you a buffoon?
Oh wait, I remember now- you don’t care about people. You only care about showmanship and the media spotlight. Got ya.
