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.
And it didn’t disappoint…
Today on the 700 Club, Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent Paul Strand spoke to Jesten Peters of Keys of Authority Ministries who said that her organization’s prayer efforts helped steer Tropical Storm Isaac away from Tampa in order to protect the Republican National Convention. But while Peters and CBN celebrated, Isaac is now heading to Louisiana and Mississippi with potential devastating consequences. CBN’s Pat Robertson in 1985 said that his prayer moved Hurricane Gloria away from Virginia Beach, were CBN is based, and towards New York, and earlier this year said that prayer could’ve stopped a string of deadly tornadoes.
So according to CBN, God moved the Hurricane to preserve Republicans. And according to Limbaugh, the Hurricane never really was heading towards Tampa, it was a ploy by the White House…
Ah self-appointed heretics… you’re a scream.
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.
