The Haters: Volume Two, Pat Robertson
Pat Robertson, even the man’s name is a lie. He chose the name ‘Pat’ because he felt ‘Marion’ was just ‘too effeminate’. He was born Marion Gordon Robertson in March of 1930 to Absalom Willis Robertson, a conservative Democratic United States Senator, and his wife Gladys Churchill.
Robertson has an issue with truthfulness. He can’t do it. For instance, He claims to have been elected Phi Beta Kappa. Robertson did graduate with Honors from his Prep School, The McCallie School in Chatanooga, and then enrolled in and subsequently graduated from Washington and Lee University majoring in History. Phi Beta Kappa keeps a registry and he’s not on it.
Robertson lied about his military service. This is what he says…
"I ended up at the headquarters command of the First Marine Division," says Robertson. "The Division was in combat in the hot and dusty, then bitterly cold portion of North Korea just above the 38th Parallel later identified as the 'Punchbowl' and 'Heartbreak Ridge.' For that service in the Korean War, the Marine Corps awarded me three battle stars for 'action against the enemy.'”
However, when it was revealed by former Congressman Pete McCloskey, who served with Robertson, that Robertson’s Senator/Father had pulled the strings to keep him from any real combat and that he in fact had been stationed in Japan where he procured booze for the Officers there, Robertson sued. The suit was dropped after McCloskey rounded up one of Robertson’s tent mates, who not only confirmed that Southern Baptist Pat Robertson was pimping alcohol for the higher ups, but that he was a bit of a whore hound, who worried about having the clap and had a habit of sexually harassing the Korean ‘maid’ on the base.
After the war, Robertson garnered a Law Degree from Yale, but failed to pass the Bar Exam. He decided to become a preacher. Robertson was awarded a Master of Divinity degree from the New York Theological Seminary in 1959. He then founded the Christian Broadcast Network in 1960 with, in his words, “…only seventy dollars in his pocket…” Well, that and the backing and connections of his wealthy family… Over the years CBN has gone through several owners, all with the provision that his ‘700 Club’ be aired twice a day in perpetuity. Its current incarnation is as ‘ABC Family’ owned by Disney. Robertson’s broadcast income has made him quite wealthy, along with his hawking herbal cures and health supplements.
Robertson was a tireless fundraiser for the ‘Contras’ in Nicaragua in their revolt against the Sandinista government of that country. These same Contras which the International Human Rights Law Group found "a distinct pattern" of attacks on purely civilian targets resulting in the killing of unarmed men, women, children, and the elderly; premeditated acts of brutality including rape, beatings, mutilation and torture; and individual and mass kidnappings of civilians for the purpose of forced recruitment into the contra forces. Christian Values.
Robertson was also a close personal friend and business associate of deposed Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. When G. Bush and the American government offered a 2 million dollar reward for the capture of Taylor, Robertson snipped that Bush was "undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels to take over the country." Robertson had good reason to love Taylor, after all, Taylor gave him carte blanc to mine for and smuggle out blood diamonds from his country. Robertson used his ‘Operation Blessings’ aircraft (supposed to be used to deliver food and medicine to war torn Rwanda) to effect this tidy little business operation.
Is Pat Robertson a hater? Let’s let him speak for himself…
"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist."
(about Hugo Chavez) “I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war, and I don’t think any oil shipments will stop.”
He described feminism as 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.”
“I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period.”
“Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals -- the two things seem to go together.”
“If the widespread practice of homosexuality will bring about the destruction of your nation, if it will bring about terrorist bombs, if it'll bring about earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor, it isn't necessarily something we ought to open our arms to.”
“Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.”Need I say more? LC >;-}>
Christianity: A disgusting middle eastern blood cult, based in human sacrifice, with sacraments of cannibalism and vampirism, whose highest icon is of a near naked man hanging in torment from a device of torture.
