In related news, Pat Robertson says Christian talk show hosts should stop saying stupid things…
A Southern Baptist seminary president urged evangelicals not to get too caught up in all the excitement surrounding the naming of a new pope.“Evangelical Christians simply cannot accept the legitimacy of the papacy and must resist and reject claims of papal authority,” Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said in a podcast commentary March 14. “To do otherwise would be to compromise biblical truth and reverse the Reformation.”
Al must not know this (and it’s amazingly sad that a Seminary President is so woefully ignorant), but
1- No Protestant or Evangelical that I know or have ever met accepts the ‘legitimacy’ of the papacy (in the sense of the Pope being their supreme leader). Al, you’re spitting into the wind and protesting something that doesn’t exist. Folk – even Protestants – watching the proceedings in Rome on the tv box is NOT papal adoration. Calm down, and chill out. And please, shut up.

Mohler is truly an embarrassment to Southern Baptists. Truly. I wish that he (and his kindred spirit Pat Robertson) would just retire and move to an island somewhere and spend their remaining days talking about themselves and wishing they could be in the public eye again. They love it so. They love the limelight and attention. That’s the only possible explanation for their unending dronings.
Al, you are no Reformer (though you fancy yourself one. And I know Reformers and you’re the furthest thing from one to be sure). And this isn’t the 16th century. And the Pope isn’t the Antichrist. Please, just stop. Talking.
And he’s the world’s worst ‘interpreter’ of the Bible. And that’s saying something given the existence of Todd Bentley and Joel Osteen. Pentebabbleists…. you guys are just wretched when it comes to understanding the meaning of the Bible. ‘Demons attach themselves to inanimate objects…’ You guys- you’re more influenced by Voodoo than the Bible. Via.
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).
He urges a man to become a Muslim so he can beat his wife… Tongue in cheek or not, it’s vile. And the remainder of his comments… ABSURD. This man is a wicked lunatic and in no sense a representative of Christianity.
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.
He’s evil enough to suggest that you shouldn’t adopt children because you don’t know what kind of trouble they’ll be. That’s demonically evil.
Could he be more perverse? Could he really ever imagine himself to be a Christian in any meaningful sense of the word?
No one from the deepest lair of hell harms Christianity more than Pat Robertson. He’s a loathsome troll of a man who should shut up- forever.
Televangelist Pat Robertson is not happy with the Broncos shipping out Tim Tebow. So unhappy that he’s wishing Peyton Manning bad karma. Robertson has his own bounty out on the new QB. Robertson said Denver treated Tebow “shabbily” after all he did for the “nothing team” last season. “And you just ask yourself, OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right,” he said on the 700 Club.
It would serve them right? Pat, you’re perversity enfleshed. Hell is going to enjoy you. It already does.
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.
Color me shocked… Pat Robertson thinks the GOP is too extreme…
You knew it was coming: another of Pat Robertson’s ‘I think I’m a prophet’ pronouncements:
Televangelist Pat Robertson suggested Wednesday that cracks in the Washington Monument caused by the August 23 earthquake could be a sign from God, and the natural disaster “means that we’re closer to the coming of the Lord.” To explain the rare east coast quake, Robertson pointed to the Biblical prophecy of the end of the world, which claims there could be potential devastation from natural disasters leading up to Jesus’ return to Earth.
There’s just so much crack that one can manage Pat. And it isn’t the Washington obelisk that shows the real signs of decay and imminent destruction.
You’ve already proven yourself a false-‘prophet’ on dozens of occasions. Your followers, Pat, are as delusional as you to keep sending you funds and keep you polluting the airwaves with your dilettantism. Oh, and speaking of, here’s your well deserved dilly-
It isn’t a news organization, it’s something altogether different, like Pat Robertson’s World Net Daily– an organ of ideology. Or worse (and probably more accurately), it’s like the ‘National Enquirer’. If it appears in ‘The Trumpet’ you can be fairly sure that it is so slanted, so biased, so twisted, and so misinformed as to baffle the mind.
Take heart, Antonio! Just because it appears online in a pseudo-news outlet doesn’t make it so.
Surely he could have chosen a better analogy, right? Or does he just know a lot of 5 year olds having sex?
The problem is comparing interest in God with 5 year olds and sex. That’s the problem.
[Don’t people think before they tweet? Or are they so enamored of their own brilliance, they don’t recognize what they’ve actually said?]
According to a source close to Joel, he and Robertson are teaming up for a new ministry called ‘The 700 Watts Club’! It will air daily and feature Joel at prayer with Robertson and plenty of endorsements of far right wing neo-fascist groups! Remember, you heard it here first!
UPDATE: Well apparently it was mentioned some time ago. But honestly, who reads there? I never saw it…
Piper is evidently striving to be the new Pat Robertson by making it plain for all to see that his theology is grossly deficient–
In a tweet, Piper said: God took out Osama bin Ladin. And he will take me out. And you. And everyone else. Only different ways. Then, in his latest blog, he actually had the temerity to suggest that God was thrilled with the death of Osama, saying: It is also true that God does delight in the death of the wicked. It’s in this blog that Piper stretches this eisegesis beyond credulity by reading prophetic passages in Ezekiel and Revelation, along with a passage of warning to Israel in Deuteronomy as proof positive that God delights in the death of the wicked.
Thrilled with death huh? Now there’s someone who doesn’t know how to read the Bible at all. It’s a shame too. I was hoping that there would be no new Robertson. Alas…
I wonder if, by his own standards and miserable theological ineptitude, Piper believes God will rejoice at his death too. Or is it only the death of people Piper doesn’t like that make God happy…
