Pat Robertson Is Still A Vince Foster Truther

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson revived the debunked allegation that Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in murdering former administration aide Vince Foster, who died of suicide.

“All the records on that have now disappeared,” he said. (They haven’t.) “So they’re trying to clean up their tracks before somebody goes investigating some of that stuff too.”

Robertson has been spreading the conspiracy theory that the Clintons murdered Foster and others since the early 1990s.

Pat Robertson Raises Doubts About Hillary Clinton's Mental Fitness

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson seized on the right-wing meme that Hillary Clinton is covering up major health issues, citing a photo he saw on the Drudge Report of Clinton nearly slipping on icy steps, which is apparently proof that she’s “got some neurological impairment.”

“She’s asking Trump to show his tax returns, and they’re going to be saying, ‘You better show your medical returns,’” he said, pointing to the fact that Clinton was photographed holding a railing while walking up stairs.

“I don’t know if it’s true or not,” he added.

Robertson even wondered if Vice President Biden will have to step in because Clinton’s supposedly flagging health may cause her to withdraw from the race.

Marco Rubio: Vote For Donald Trump To Have More Scalia-like Justices On The Supreme Court

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio may stand by his belief that Donald Trump is a dishonest “con man,” but in an interview last week with the Christian Broadcasting Network, he said that pastors should support Trump anyway, noting that “Donald Trump is committed” to appointing Supreme Court justices in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia.

“I just don’t believe there’s any chance at all that Hillary Clinton will ever appoint someone to the Supreme Court with the views that Scalia had,” he added.

CBN Asks Donald Trump: Do You Think God Raised You Up For The Presidency?

Yesterday, Donald Trump gave an interview to the Christian Broadcasting Network following his speech at the American Renewal Project’s gathering in Orlando, a speech that received a rave review from CBN founder and “700 Club” host Pat Robertson.

CBN reporter Jenna Browder asked Trump the question that has been on everybody’s mind: “You know, a lot of Christians believe that you have been chosen for such a time as this. Do you believe that’s true? Have you ever considered that maybe this is a divine calling?”

“Well you know, I’ve heard that from others,” Trump said. “I’ve heard it from pastors. I’ve heard it from others. I don’t really want to think about it because it’s too big of a burden but I can say this, that if I can do what I’m saying I can do, and I’m not only talking with the military and building up and safety and security, you know, our country’s in such bad shape in so many ways.”

When Browder asked Trump how he would “protect” the “Christian business leaders” who “are getting attacked because they don’t want to support gay couples or they don’t want to provide services,” Trump spoke vaguely about what he had said in his speech.

Robertson, meanwhile, hailed Trump’s “refreshing” remarks, while alleging that the IRS is persecuting “conservative Christians.”

Pat Robertson: Satan Inspires Liberals To Lie About Donald Trump (And Me)

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson defended GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump over his recent comment that if Hillary Clinton is elected president, nothing could be done to prevent her and her judicial nominees from doing away with gun rights unless “Second Amendment people” stop them.

Robertson blamed liberal monitoring groups for the uproar, alleging that they twisted Trump’s remarks, before he himself went ahead and altered Trump’s remarks to make them more benign.

The televangelist told co-host Wendy Griffith that he feels for his “buddy” because he has been the victim of similar hit jobs from Media Matters and People For the American Way. (Right Wing Watch is a project of People For the American Way).

“I sympathize with Donald Trump. I had a group called Media Matters, I had another group called People For the American Way, they taped every single word that I said and I did about 10,000 broadcasts, I did many adlibs, and every time they would take my words and transpose—they would take connectors out and they would put it out, and there was somebody at the AP who was one of their clones and they picked [it] up and across the country would come these idiotic statements,” he said. “The same thing is being done to Trump.”

“Out of context, twist it around, and then throw it out, ‘Robertson just said,’ and around the world,” Robertson continued. “So they’re doing to Trump now. There’s a whole team of people just looking for every word he speaks to make him look silly. What he said yesterday I think, or the day before, whatever, the Second Amendment crowd would give me a hand, and what he’s talking about are those who are concerned about gun control, and what he’s saying is a new Supreme Court judge, it’s been virtually a tie on it, and the next time they put a liberal judge on, they’ll be reversing the Second Amendment. So he said the Second Amendment. So what his opponents are saying, Donald Trump is encouraging people to shoot Hillary, it’s just nonsense.”

These supposed lies about Trump and himself, Robertson explained, are inspired by the same source: Satan.

“Every time they’re going to twist the words, I know what it’s like, he has my profound sympathy but these people are profound liars and they’re set up as liars,” he said. “The devil is a liar and the father of lies, according to the Bible.”

Pat Robertson Advises Trump: The Devil Is Trying To Draw You Into Fights

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson offered GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump some campaign advice: Avoid the devil’s attempt to “get you off on rabbit trails.”

“The Lord has handed Mr. Trump a gift of 1.2 percent GDP growth, which is absolutely pathetic and horrible,” the televangelist said, noting that instead of talking about economic growth, Trump is talking about “Muslim heroes or fallen warriors.”

“Stay off that and talk about the economy,” he advised.

When cohost Wendy Griffith asked why Trump seems to be so easily “baited by these tweets and all these things,” Robertson said that “with Christians, the devil will get you off on rabbit trails every chance you get.”

“If you are susceptible to them and if you respond, then he’ll — there will be incitement constantly in your life,” he said. “You have to block all that stuff out and concentrate on the one thing that is important. In the election right now, stay on message. It is the economy.”

Pat Robertson: Donald Trump Is 'Professing His Faith' And Courting Religious Right Support

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson congratulated Donald Trump, who has repeatedly courted the televangelist's support, for officially securing the GOP nomination for president, claiming that Trump is “professing his faith” on the campaign trail.

Robertson said that Trump “understands that the evangelicals are crucial to winning this election,” which is why he has pledged to only appoint solidly conservative judges to the bench and push the Religious Right's political agenda.

“Trump is willing to say, ‘Okay, you back me on this and I’m going to back you on your issues,’ and I believe him,” Robertson said. “He looks after his friends.”

The televangelist added that the Supreme Court is “at stake” in the election, along with “all the legislation having to do with all the sexual activity of the United States people, same-sex marriage and all that stuff, plus abortion, that’s on the table. If you’re interested in guns and the Second Amendment, that’s going to be on the table without question. You can go right down the list of key issues that are going to be decided by the Supreme Court and we’re looking at at least two to maybe three vacancies on the court for the next president.”

Pat Robertson: Satan Behind Church-State Separation Groups

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who asked if church-state separation groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State “ever fight against any other religions” besides Christianity.

Robertson said that such groups exclusively target Christians because “they understand Christianity is where the power is — the power doesn’t exist in Islam, the power doesn’t exist in Baha’i or any of these fringe religions.”

“They fight against Christianity because Christianity touches the souls of people and the devil regards Christianity as a threat, and of course it is a threat because we’re going to overturn him and his kingdom.”

Pat Robertson: Polygamy Is Biblical, But…

Marriage equality opponents like Pat Robertson often argue that same-sex couples shouldn’t have a right to get married because the U.S. government should follow the “biblical” rule that marriage is reserved for one man and one woman.

However, in response to a question today on “The 700 Club” about whether Jews in the Old Testament who were in polygamous marriages were committing adultery by having more than one spouse, Robertson said that such marriages weren’t “considered adultery” according to the Ten Commandments.

Robertson, nonetheless, said that now polygamy will become legal “because the only reason they have laws against polygamy is because it is said it is unbiblical and unchristian and therefore you shouldn’t do it."

"If you can have all the other things the Supreme Court has ruled on, believe me they are going to rule it’s unconstitutional to forbid polygamy," he said."

He clarified that while the New Testament forbids polygamy, men in the Old Testament who had multiple wives still had “covenant relationships with all of them — that’s in the book.”

Watch:

Pat Robertson: God Will Punish America For Abortion Rights Decision

Pat Robertson reacted today to the “terrible” Supreme Court ruling striking down parts of a Texas anti-abortion law by declaring that America will face divine judgment for allowing abortion to be legal.

We have slaughtered over 55 million unborn babies in this country and we’re going to pay a terrible price as a nation for allowing that. And when it’s sanctioned and approved of by the highest court in the land, then we all stand responsible for it and we will pay, all of us, as a nation, because the Supreme Court and the president and the leaders of our country said that’s what they want.

And those unborn babies are crying out, their blood will cry out against us as a nation and one of these days what’s going to be happen is going to be horrible. So, this is the law, you can talk about the law, it’s legal to have an abortion, Roe v. Wade, and so forth. But what is happening is the slaughter of the unborn is exceeding in America the slaughter in any nation I am aware of in the history of mankind.

Pat Robertson: Revolt Against Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Government

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson accused President Obama of coddling the Muslim Brotherhood and bringing the group into “the inner circles of the government of the United States.”

Robertson hinted that the president may be a secret Muslim, falsely claiming that Obama attended an Islamic madrassa while living in Indonesia. He also falsely claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood inspired the Palestine Liberation Organization and Hezbollah, secular and Shiite rivals of the group, respectively.

After declaring that “the government doesn’t want us” to fight terrorist groups, Robertson said that extremists are the ones who truly follow Islam: “The people who are distorting Islam are not these radical groups, they are following right down the line what the Quran says. The ones who are distorting it are the so-called moderates who refuse to go along with it.”

“It’s shocking, it should be horrifying and it’s time the American people stand up against it,” Robertson said. “We’re being taken over, it’s a very subtle thing. Europe is being overrun and taken over and country after country after country are facing Islamic extremists and it is very hurtful.”

“We have got to do something in this country,” he added. “We’re looking at a revolution in England and maybe looking for a revolution in this country. We’ve had enough.”

Pat Robertson: God Will Punish Us For Satanic Abortion Rights

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson railed against America’s “culture of death” that “delights in killing people,” warning that God will soon punish America for making abortion legal.

Robertson said that “we have to look at the spiritual roots” of abortion rights, blaming the right to abortion on Satan: “The enemy of our soul is Satan and he hates people, he hates human beings, and the idea is if humans can kill other humans, the devil wants to do everything to help it.”

“It’s a shocking holocaust,” he said. “And we as Americans seem to think it’s okay. Well, it’s not okay. And one day, a righteous, holy God is going to demand an accounting for every drop of blood that has been spilled of innocent, unborn babies. And we just keep it mind, when it happens it’s going to be awful.”

Pat Robertson: Gays & Islamists Are Allies So 'Let Them Kill Themselves'

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to the massacre at an Orlando gay club by making the absurd claim that liberal LGBT rights advocates have aligned themselves with radical Islamists and are now reaping what they have sowed.

Robertson said that liberals are facing a “dilemma” because they love both LGBT equality and Islamic extremism, and that it is better for conservatives like himself not to get involved but to instead just watch the two groups kill each other.

“The left is having a dilemma of major proportions and I think for those of us who disagree with some of their policies, the best thing to do is to sit on the sidelines and let them kill themselves,” he said.

Earlier in the program, Robertson went into more detail about what he called “the dilemma of the liberals, the so-called progressives, because they have two favored groups. One, the Muslims. Number two, the homosexuals.”

We’re looking at a favored group by the left, the homosexuals, and that in Islam is punishable by death or imprisonment or some sanction, so what are the left going to do? How are they going to describe it? And they don’t know quite what to do now. The fact that this Islamic gentleman opens fire in a gay nightclub and kills almost 50 homosexuals, that says something and tells the fact that Islam is against homosexuality, so the liberals are going to be scrambling to find some rationale, I think they’re going to have a hard time doing it.

In the meantime, Donald Trump is riding high because he said we should screen these people and he’s absolutely right. We should screen them. So the left is saying, ‘Oh you’re anti-Muslim, you’re racist’ and all this. Suddenly, that part of the narrative doesn’t play too well and they’re stuck as to what to do. But Trump is enjoying a victory.

Robertson went on to criticize President Obama for being soft on terrorism and sticking to “the narrative” that Islam is not inherently violent, irresponsibly ignoring the fact that “radical Islam is in the religion of Islam.”

He added that the issue of homosexuality and the Islamic world is “a murky picture” because Lawrence of Arabia may have spent the night with a sheikh who tried to “perform homosexual acts” on him.

UPDATE: The Christian Broadcasting Network released a statement today saying that Robertson was “clearly” using the word “killing” metaphorically during his discussion of a mass murder.

Pat Robertson: Marriage Equality Makes It Harder To Fight 'Radical Islam And The Other Forces Of Secularism'

In August of last year, shortly after the Supreme Court handed down the landmark Obergefell marriage equality ruling, televangelist Pat Robertson discussed the ruling with Steve Strang, the founder of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma, on his podcast.

Robertson warned that “the homosexuals don’t want equality, they don’t want equal treatment, what they want is to destroy everybody who disagrees with them.” He predicted that there will be “a vendetta” against “any organization that disagrees with homosexuality,” saying that “what was done to Bob Jones University, that’s just a warm-up of what’s going to happen unless there’s something dramatic that takes place.” (Bob Jones University lost its tax exempt status in the 1980s because of its rules barring interracial dating.)

Robertson told Strang that with rulings like Obergefell, the Supreme Court has broken down America’s defenses against “radical Islam and the other forces of secularism trying to destroy us”:

The Supreme Court, to think that we’ve got five men and women, five unelected people who are controlling of the moral destiny of this nation and they’re stripping us of the defenses that we have to have against radical Islam and the other forces of secularism trying to destroy us. The Supreme Court is making it more and more difficult to assert these foundational values.

Pat Robertson Hopes President Trump Will Quash LGBT Rights Push

Today, one week after lambasting the transgender rights movement as fraudulent and inspired by Satan, Pat Robertson said that trans equality “has got nothing to do with civil rights.”

“It’s just absurd,” he said. “It’s merely part of the socialist, humanist agenda to destroy the Judeo-Christian fabric of this nation.”

The televangelist was responding to the Justice Department’s challenge of North Carolina’s recently enacted anti-LGBT law, hoping that a future Donald Trump administration would oust Attorney General Loretta Lynch for siding with the “so-called transgenders.”

Robertson then lamented that President Obama was re-elected in the first place: “This is America and this is who you put in office. You elected him. I didn’t elect him. You did.”

Pat Robertson: Homosexuality Will Destroy America

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson responded to a story on conservative activists in the republic of Georgia who accuse the U.S. and the European Union of trying “to force Georgia into accepting homosexual practices and same-sex marriage as societal norms.” (Not coincidentally, some of the same activists will be hosting a number of American anti-LGBT groups at the World Congress of Families this month.)

Robertson, of course, said that America’s support for LGBT rights is putting the nation’s survival at risk and may be paving the way for the End Times and divine judgment.

The truth is, from what we understand in history, there hasn’t been one nation in the history of the world that has openly embraced homosexual lifestyle and begun to practice the homosexual lifestyle that has endured. Every one of them has gone down. Every single one of them. Once rampant homosexuality takes place, then people don’t take care of their children, they aren’t concerned about the next generation, they’re concerned about physical pleasure and the activities surrounding this lifestyle, they aren’t planning for the future and the country goes to pot.

Right now it it’s kind of in the balance, it’s kind of interesting, but the fact that the European Union and the U.S. is trying to impose this lifestyle on a little country like Georgia that wants to stay orthodox is incredible.

You look at the Book of Revelation and it says, ‘Mystery Mother of Harlots, you have made the world drunk with the wine of your fornication.’ And you say, who is that ‘mystery woman?’ Well, more and more, this great nation of ours, the U.S. of A, is becoming — to take on that role. I don’t know if we intend to but that’s what’s happening. We’re making the nations drunk with the wine of our fornication and God brings judgment on a country that does that.

Pat Robertson: Satan And Progressives Want Transgender Rights 'Jammed Down' Our Throats

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson denounced the “crazy” push for transgender nondiscrimination measures, calling it a Satanic plot to undermine America’s “Judeo-Christian” traditions.

The televangelist was responding to the news that Alliance Defending Freedom and the Thomas More Society filed a lawsuit challenging the Department of Education in a case involving whether a female transgender student in Illinois can access girls’ facilities. Robertson said that while he has no problem with transgender people undergoing hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery — “no sin, nothing” — he doesn’t think the federal government should get involved with the issue of trans discrimination and “make it a big cause célèbre.”

“It’s the constant driving of the agenda of anti-Christian bias,” Robertson said. “We’re going to destroy any semblance of the Christian morality that exists in our country and our government is going to be at the forefront of it, that’s what you’re looking at. It’s one more attempt by the so-called progressives to destroy the Judeo-Christian fabric of America.”

He went on to warn that nondiscrimination measures would “turn loose” a “voyeur who likes to look at little girls with no clothes on.”

“The devil is obviously fighting at one particular place,” Robertson continued. “It’s not that there are a lot of people being discriminated against, they aren’t.”

Americans are “mad” and “furious,” he added, because “they don’t want this so-called progressive agenda being jammed down their throats.”

Pat Robertson: Feminists Want To 'Have Some Parade And March Around Topless'

Pat Robertson, the televangelist who once said that feminism is “a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians,” today hailed the effort by some activists to “reclaim” feminism as a conservative movement.

Robertson's “700 Club” program profiled activists promoting what they call “maternal feminism,” which emphasizes preserving traditional family structures and banning abortion. Robertson hailed these activists for showing the world “what true feminism is.”

He said that women “don’t have to go out and have some parade and march around topless and say nasty things like these former feminists.” Feminism, Robertson said, had been distorted by “radicals” who wanted to “tear down the f-ing patriarchy and on and on.”

“‘Let’s be radical and let’s be free’ and a whole generation of college women were probably scarred by the rhetoric of these people,” he said. “But what we found as we’ve gone deeper into it is that some of those who were writing about feminism were actually making stuff up and lying.”

Pat Robertson: Many Transgender People Are Frauds

Yesterday on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said he was “simply appalled” by the negative reaction to North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law, claiming that the law is “perfectly reasonable” and that it was passed because “we don’t want men going into women’s bathrooms, we don’t want predators going out where little girls are, we don’t want voyeurs having free access to the women’s locker rooms during games when they’re changing clothes.”

The televangelist contended – without any basis in fact or reality – that while there are some people who truly are transgender, many people identifying as transgender are frauds.

“People like that are relatively rare,” Robertson said. “So much of this other stuff is put up, it’s put on and it’s just a fraud. And it’s one more opportunity for the left to demonstrate against some aggrievement they claim to have that doesn’t exist. This is a phony, phony, phony cause to get involved in. ‘Well, I’ve got to look after the transgenders.’ This is nonsense.”

Pat Robertson: Islam Is A Dangerous Infection That Must Be Eliminated

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said that countries like Belgium and France must respond with “violence” to the “infection” of Muslim immigrants, telling his co-host Terry Meeuwsen that these countries must fight Islam in the same way that a body fights a deadly disease.

Otherwise, “Europe is doomed. Doomed!” he said, before adding: “And we have a president here in America who refuses to name it, refuses to identify it and refuses to give us what’s needed to kill the infection.”

Robertson: Our bodies are amazingly resilient and they can throw off a small infection, something comes up and the body has mechanisms to deal with it and the body closes in on the invader and kills it and the body stays strong. But there comes a time if the infection is allowed to spread, and it will spread rapidly when the invader overtakes the healthy body, at which point there is sickness and then ultimately death.

No society should allow some alien body to come to its midst that preaches terror, preaches overthrow, preaches violence and preaches another form of government. We shouldn’t have that.

Now, that’s what is being allowed in Belgium and France and other parts of Europe in the name of political correctness. And the so-called socialist liberals think, ‘I want to be open and I want to be welcoming to these people who come in.’ Okay, a few of them, fine, assimilate into the society, learn the language, learn the customs and be Belgians. But these people are not. They’re keeping on with their Islamic customs, Islamic dress, they’re speaking Arabic and they’re in the middle of Belgium and they’re growing and metastasizing and it won’t be long before they overwhelm the healthy body. Here in America and other places, we can only stand so much infection before it overwhelms us.

Meeuwsen: But once you’ve allowed that to occur and roots have gone down into a city or a region, is it too late to change that?

Robertson: Not really, but it’s going to take violence. They’ve got to move in with the police dragnets.

Meeuwsen: Do you think they have the stomach for that?

Robertson: Well, no. That’s the problem. You don’t want to, you know, it seems like you’re violating people’s civil rights, you don’t want to take away their liberty and violate the thing you are, but people have got to stand up and recognize the threat and if they don’t do it the society’s doomed. That’s what’s happening. All of our shows are showing, I mean our reporters are showing that Europe is doomed. Doomed! Because they refuse to acknowledge the existence of a pathogen in their midst, an infection, that has come in, and that’s what radical Islam is, it’s an infection. And we have a president here in America who refuses to name it, refuses to identify it and refuses to give us what’s needed to kill the infection. As a matter of fact, he wants to take more of them and bring them into the country.

Meeuwsen: Crazy.

Robertson: It’s crazy.

Meeuwsen: And in doing so we lose our own rights.
