Pat Robertson: Who Needs A Doctor When God Is Your Physician

Today on “The 700 Club,” a 76-year-old viewer asked host Pat Robertson if he should yield to his family’s pleas to see a doctor even though he already asked God “to be my physician.”

Robertson defended the viewer’s refusal to take a trip to the doctor’s office: “There’s some people who think that doctors are god and they really aren’t. You’ve asked God to be your physician so stick with it and say ‘Lord, I’m asking you for it.’”

The televangelist and faith-healer qualified that while people should still take medicine, a doctor’s visit isn’t necessary.

“You’ve made a commitment to the Lord, stick with it, don’t let your family influence you, do what you feel like doing,” he said. “Live your life, God bless you.”

Pat Robertson: Fight The 'War On Christmas' And 'Bring In The Green'

The Christian Broadcasting Network is giving away Christmas window clings which “700 Club” host Pat Robertson hopes will remind people to say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

Following a CBN advertisement about a sales clerk who catches herself before saying “Merry Christmas” and construction workers dismantling a Nativity scene, Robertson railed against the “outrageous” and “ridiculous” “War on Christmas.”

In fact, Robertson reminded shop owners of the real reason for the season: saying “Merry Christmas” to customers will boost sales!

“They better get behind Christmas. The holidays don’t bring in the green, but Christmas does,” he said.

Pat Robertson Defends Torture, Misleads On Immigration

Televangelist Pat Robertson defended the use of torture by the U.S. today, telling “700 Club” viewers that they shouldn’t be troubled by the impending release of a Senate report on torture since such “rather rough” practices were necessary to stop terrorist attacks.

“You may be shocked at some of that, but the truth is we didn’t have another incident after 9/11 and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he was caught, he was the mastermind, and they were rather rough with him but they learned invaluable information,” he said. “So I know it seems brutal but that’s the way it was.”

According to Sen. John McCain, “the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on Khalid Sheik Mohammed produced false and misleading information” while “the best intelligence gained from a CIA detainee” was “obtained through standard, noncoercive means.”

Immediately after his remarks on torture, Robertson accused the Obama administration of releasing “30,000 immigrant criminals” into the U.S., citing a wildly inflated figure that mostly includes people who committed traffic violations.

Pat Robertson: Give Network Money To Help Job Prospects

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from an unemployed Christian Broadcasting Network contributor who wondered what he should do while facing limited job prospects and piling bills.

“You can do telephone marketing from home,” Robertson suggested. “Think about raking leaves, mowing lawns, trimming bushes, there are a thousand things you can do on your own, don’t always wait for somebody else to hire you.”

Robertson added that a donation to CBN may improve his chances of finding a new job: “Ask the Lord, when you send that $20 or $40 off, you say, ‘God I am putting a request along with this, I am investing it with power.’”

Pat Robertson: Obama Is Working With Terrorists

Televangelist Pat Robertson, who is pretty sure that President Obama is a secret Muslim and “may have made a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood,” today accused the president of working with terrorists.

“It makes you sick at your stomach that the president whose name is, what is it, uh, Barack Hussein Obama, who studied in Indonesia and had a Muslim stepfather for a while, has embraced this terrorist organization,” he said, while wondering if Hillary Clinton also “embraced this stuff.”

After inaccurately asserting that the Muslim Brotherhood started the Palestine Liberation Organization and Hezbollah, Robertson said that “ISIS is following the Muslim Brotherhood playbook and for the president of the United States to say there is no credible evidence that they have renounced their peaceful intentions, that is pure baloney and it just makes you sick at your stomach.”

The U.S. government does not consider the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist group and past presidentsincluding President Bush, have engaged with the group.

Pat Robertson's Thanksgiving Message: Gay Rights Are Leading To America's Destruction

“The 700 Club” today ran a story about the religious faith of the pilgrims, which prompted Pat Robertson to warn that everything that the pilgrims and the founding fathers worked to build would be destroyed by the success of gay rights — or “aberrant lifestyles” — in the courts.

“Ladies and gentlemen, our warning should be today, we can’t lose that,” he said. “And when you have courts that are taking away the very essence of our democracy, the ground from which this great country came, when courts are saying that is unconstitutional, when they’re exulting aberrant lifestyles and saying that’s constitutional, when they’re defying the very essence of this nation, they are sowing the seeds, not of a new, prosperous nation but the destruction of the one that’s already here.”

 

Pat Robertson Declares Racism Dead, Calls For 'Racial Agitators' To 'Cool It'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson addressed the protests that have been breaking out all over the nation in response to a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer for the shooting death of unarmed Missouri teenager Michael Brown.

Robertson said that while “there’s no question” that “African Americans in this society for decades have been subject to discrimination” and that “there has been police brutality in various cities,” that’s all over now and “we live in what amounts to a pretty much even-tempered type of society.”

“Police are very careful in dealing with people, they’re trained to be careful with minorities, and the abuses of the past are pretty much a thing of the past,” Robertson said.

Robertson attacked “the Al Sharptons of the world and other racial agitators” for talking about social justice in the case when “this isn’t a case dealing with social justice.”

“I’m all for social justice, and I think most of us are, but this case is somebody who may have been mentally disturbed, we don’t know that, he may have been high on something, we don’t know that, but whatever it was, the police officer had to defend himself and he was attacked in his police car. So why don’t they just cool it?”

The televangelist said that President Obama, in his remarks on the verdict, should have blamed Brown for his own death because he had broken the law: “What he should have said is what I just finished saying: The young man was breaking the law and he should have been restrained and he did things that were not in keeping with law and order. If he’d said that, it would have been a whole lot better.”

 

Pat Robertson: ArcheAge, Dungeons & Dragons Lead To Demonic Possession

Pat Robertson offered a stern warning today against playing games such as ArcheAge and Dungeons & Dragons, insisting that they may lead to demonic possession.

Robertson, who has frequently attacked Dungeons & Dragons, even tying the game to suicide, said on “The 700 Club” this morning that the game led people to do “horrible things and it was almost like an invitation to demonic possession,” while conceding that he has never heard of ArcheAge.

“I think we shouldn’t get ourselves involved in something we are roleplaying a thing having to do with demonic forces,” he said.

Pat Robertson Cures A Neck Injury Via Text Message

One of the featured stories on today’s “700 Club” was that of a viewer who suffered complications after undergoing Lasik surgery, but says she was healed after watching Pat Robertson’s show. This was followed by a number of letters from viewers who reported being cured of ailments after watching “The 700 Club,” including a mother who wrote in to say that her son had been cured of a neck injury after she watched the program and texted her son about it. “He read the text and claimed the word,” the viewer reported. “Immediately, he was healed!”

Robertson was not surprised. God, he said, “can heal cancer, He can heal leukemia, He can heal arthritis, He can heal any condition you’ve got in your body. He made, you He can fix you.”

Robertson proceeded to conduct a faith healing on a viewer with a tumor and his cohost Wendy Griffith assured a woman with a lump in her breast that “the Lord is healing you right now” and it’s “not serious.”


 

Pat Robertson: Obama And 'Snaky' Harry Reid Trying To Trick Republicans Into 'Extreme Move'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson argued that President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who he called “a snaky sort of individual,” will push for temporary deportation relief for some immigrants as a “set-up to trap the Republicans into making some extreme move” such as shutting down the government.

“It’s just incredible because it’s a political grab and you wonder what are they playing for,” he said. “I said yesterday and the day before that it’s no question it’s a set-up on this immigration thing, it’s a set-up to trap the Republicans into making some extreme move or to build a constitutional crisis where it looked like they have shut the government down.

“We can’t have that happen, so they’ve got to take a very cautious approach to how they stop the president. But they can shut him down in a number of other ways, and they have got to do it.”

Pat Robertson Refers To Children With Down Syndrome As 'Mongoloid'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson and his co-host Terry Meeuwsen talked about children born with cleft palate and Down syndrome, the latter of whom Robertson referred to as “mongoloid” children.

“So you see these little children that we call mongoloid, you know, Down syndrome, sweet little children but the back part [of the head] hasn’t formed,” he said. “It’s a deformity, if you have a little girl, can you imagine having a big hole in the mouth?”

Earlier this year, Robertson advised a viewer to be careful against marrying her first cousin since “you don’t want to have some mongoloid child.”

Pat Robertson: This Halloween, Give Satan A Black Eye For Legalizing Abortion

Pat Robertson, who is no fan of Halloween, today urged viewers to mark the occasion by punching the Devil in the face.

“Just say, ‘I am free. On this Halloween I gave a black eye to Satan,’” he told viewers while promoting a booklet he wrote called “Angels, Demons and the End Times.” (Robertson had also just responded to a CBN story about an abusive Satanist household.)

Robertson told viewers that Satan is behind not only Halloween, but also abortion rights: “The Devil has tried to destroy people, he wants to kill babies. Why do you think we’ve got such an incredible culture of death in our country? Why do you think that we’ve killed over 50 million unborn babies? Who do you think is behind all that? This isn’t just human, it is demonic. Satan wants to destroy our babies. He wants to destroy our babies just like Pharaoh sent the word to destroy the Hebrew babies, and it’s the same thing all the way through.”

Pat Robertson: 'Dangerous' Ouija Boards 'Communicate With Demonic Spirits'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson denounced the use of Ouija boards after a viewer asked him about the new horror movie, “Ouija.”

“The spirit is causing that little needle — it goes around to letters and spells out words and so you feel like [it’s] some dead person, but actually it is communicating with demonic spirits,” he said. “It is a dangerous thing and I strongly urge people not to get involved in it.”

Previously, Robertson said that “Ouija boards aren’t harmless. Ouija boards are often time-directed by demonic spirits. There are various types of chants. The so-called TM Mantras are actually prayers in Sanskrit to various Hindu Gods who are in turn demons, and you are saying something you don’t understand when in essence you are praying to a devil to come to you.”

Pat Robertson Warns God May Punish Houston For Defending 'Militant Homosexuals'

Last week, Pat Robertson reacted to a case in Houston in which a group of pastors were subpoenaed as part of the discovery process in a lawsuit over the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance by calling gay rights advocates “terrorists.”

The subpoenas have since been withdrawn, but that has done nothing to rein in Robertson, who warned today on “The 700 Club” that Houston could be punished just like the biblical city of Gibeah was when it defended what he calls a group of “militant homosexuals”…who raped a woman.

Robertson said Judges 19 was a story of “militant homosexuals” who wanted to rape a Levite traveler in Gibeah but ended up raping his female concubine, who ultimately died.

“These homosexuals abused her all night long,” Robertson said.

In the Bible’s telling of the story, a “depraved lot” of Benjaminites demanded that a man who took in the Levite traveler turn him over to the group so they could rape him. Instead, the host offered them his virgin daughter and the Levite’s concubine — “Ravish them and do whatever you want to them” — and “seized his concubine, and put her out to them. They wantonly raped her, and abused her all through the night until the morning.”

After the concubine died, the Levite cut her “into twelve pieces, limb by limb, and sent her throughout all the territory of Israel.” In the next chapter, the Israelites routed the Tribe of Benjamin and “put them to the sword — the city, the people, the animals, and all that remained. Also the remaining towns they set on fire.”

Robertson suggested that Houston might face fate similar to that of the Benjaminites of Gibeah: “Benjamin had been annihilated. They had killed all the women, they had killed a good portion of the fighting men, they burned a number of their cities, it was a complete mess. Why? Because they had defended these rapist homosexuals. Is that a message for Houston? For someplace else in America?”

Pat Robertson: Brittany Maynard Aiding 'Culture Of Death,' Should Ask For A Faith Healing

Today, “The 700 Club” aired a story about Brittany Maynard, a terminally ill woman who has decided to end her own life in Oregon, where doctor-assisted suicide is legal in certain cases.

Following the story, host Pat Robertson lashed out that “the so-called liberals are a culture of death, they want to kill babies, they want to kill the terminally ill, they don’t seem to honor life.”

Robertson said that terminally ill people like Maynard face “pressure” to die and that instead of seeking options for ending their own lives, they should ask for faith healings from people like Robertson.

“She has brain cancer, but brain cancer can get healed, God can heal anything,” said Robertson, who once claimed that he healed a woman of a brain tumor.

Pat Robertson: People Don't Live To Be 950 Anymore Because Of Climate Change

Pat Robertson may be a stalwart denier of climate change, but today on “The 700 Club” the televangelist conceded that climate change did occur in biblical times, and that’s why humans no longer live to be 950 years old like Noah, or make it to 969 like Noah’s grandfather Methuselah.

“Apparently, after the Flood there wasn’t as much moisture in the air, there weren’t as many bacteria, microbes and things like that and maybe the climate was such that salts on our bodies weren’t as severe,” he said. “But after the Flood, God said the years of a man is going to be 120 years.”

Maybe you can live even longer if you try one of Pat’s Age-Defying Shakes.

Kenyans Not Happy With Pat Robertson After He Claims Their Towels Transmit AIDS

Apparently, Pat Robertson’s very unscientific claim that people shouldn’t use towels in Kenya because they might get AIDS that way has not gone over too well in Kenya.

The Associated Press reports that “Kenyans on social media are demanding that Robertson apologizes personally” for the comment.

Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network told AP that it had edited the remark out of the version of the show archived online, saying that the televangelist “misspoke.” Robertson, however, has not yet issued an on-air retraction of his comments.

Last year, when Robertson accused gay people of attacking strangers with AIDS-infected rings, CBN released a non-apology explanatory note and unsuccessfully attempted to take down our video of Robertson’s remarks.

AP:

Kenyans are expressing anger and shock on social media and radio stations over comments made by popular American evangelist Pat Robertson in a recent TV broadcast in which he warned that towels in Kenya could transmit AIDS.



Robertson's show is popular in Kenya, where the majority of residents are Christian.

HIV, which can lead to AIDS, is commonly spread through sex and drug users who share needles.

AIDS cannot be transmitted through towels, said Dr. Fredrick Sanford Kinama from the Center of HIV Prevention and Research at the University of Nairobi.

"You need a portal of entry and the medium to transmit the virus like blood or semen," Kinama said.

The Christian Broadcast Network, which airs "The 700 Club," said "Dr. Robertson misspoke about the possibility of getting AIDs through towels. CBN Quickly recognized the error and quickly removed the statement from the online archive. CBN recognizes the error and apologizes for any confusion."

Mumbi Seraki, who hosts a popular radio show in Nairobi, said Robertson should apologize personally on the show.

"Pat Robertson 'misspoke' about contracting AIDS from towels while in Kenya. But is he really sorry?" asked former legislator and human rights lawyer Gitobu Imanyara.

Paranoia-Rama: Beware 'Mussolini' Obama, Gay 'Terrorists' … And People Voting

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

With the election less than two weeks away, conservative commentators are making some pretty terrifying predictions about how President Obama will serve out the remainder of his term. But last-minute Obama-bashing won’t distract them from their other, equally important, job: attacking gays and lesbians.

5. Ernst Goes There

Since securing the GOP nomination for her state’s open U.S. Senate seat, Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst has been trying to downplay her extremist record.

But the Republican candidate is having a hard time running away from her past remarks on such issues as the danger of the UN’s Agenda 21 and the ability of local law enforcement to arrest federal officials implementing Obamacare.

In the latest example of Ernst’s record catching up to her, a video surfaced this week of the candidate telling an audience at a 2012 NRA event that the reason she takes her gun “virtually everywhere” is because she is afraid of not only violent assailants but also the government: “I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

Ed Kilgore explains the thinking behind Ernst’s claim: “The idea here is to intimidate liberals, and ‘looters’ and secular socialists, and those people, that there are limits to what the good virtuous folk of the country will put up with in the way of interference with their property rights and their religious convictions and their sense of how the world ought to work. If push comes to shove, they’re heavily armed, and bullets outweigh ballots.”

4. Obama Will Kill Us All!

If you wonder where Joni Ernst gets her ideas about an imminent government crackdown that may require a violent response, look no further than Fox News, where just this week Sean Hannity hosted conservative pundit Mark Levin to discuss President Obama’s nefarious agenda.

Levin told Hannity that Obama is imposing “quintessential statism” on America that “is a disaster,” Media Matters reports.

“The country has gone to Hell under this president and under the Democrat [sic] Party,” Levin said, warning that after the election, “with Obama it’s going to get worse, you’re going to see his full Mussolini coming out.”

Wayne Allyn Root, another conservative commentator, managed to top Levin’s remarks in an interview on the “Point of View” radio show, where he claimed that Obama “was sent here to destroy this country,” possibly by the “communist forces” of the Soviet Union or the Bilderbergs, and is “taking down the entire America.” Root added: “We’ve got to remove him from office and fast before he kills all of us.”

3. Latest Voter Fraud Menace

We keep hearing stories about Republicans increasing their outreach to African American and Latino voters, but their enthusiastic efforts to prevent people from registering to vote and from casting ballots may not be helping their case.

Take a recent incident in Arizona, where a GOP official and conservative media outlets fumed that an activist with a progressive group dropped off a box of absentee ballots at a polling center, which is completely legal. Immediately, conservatives accused the activist — a Latino man — of committing voter fraud through “ballot stuffing” and wondered if he was a violent “illegal alien.”

Of course, not only is delivering ballots on behalf of voters legal in Arizona, but Wonkette notes that Republicans brought in Mitt Romney to host a ballot drop-off campaign event this very week.

Thursday night, Mitt Romney made an appearance in Mesa, Arizona, to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey. A graphic on a couple of conservative blogs, reproduced up top, urged attendees to “Bring your Early Ballots!” so GOP get-out-the-vote volunteers could collect them and get them to the county elections office.

Just remember, it’s only okay if Republicans do it, otherwise it’s voter fraud.

2. Beware Gay Plants, Or Something

Matt Barber’s website BarbWire today published an unintentionally hilarious piece by columnist Lee Duigon, who compares gays to super-plants from outer space that eat people.

“Gaydeology,” the dogma that “sexual liberation” is the highest moral value, presses forward aggressively on all fronts. Christians are to be punished by the state if they refuse to knuckle under. But the militant “gays” are only the street muscle for a “progressive” project to beat down church, family, and anything else that competes with the secular, God-denying state for the loyalty of every citizen. This vision for America, and for all the other countries of the Western world, has roots in the 19th century that sprouted into man-eating plants in the 20th, to become a worldwide plague in the 21st.

It is reminiscent of “The Day of the Triffids,” a classic horror movie about plants from outer space that infest the earth and strike blind anyone who gets too close.

Well, we have been blind, haven’t we? Blind to threats to our freedom, blind to the vast incompetence of government, and blind to its insatiable lust for power. Worst of all, we have been both blind and deaf to God our maker and our Father, whose blessings have been the lifeblood of America.

Maybe that should be the rallying cry of the anti-gay movement: Beware the triffids!

1. Gay ‘Terrorists’ Out To Get Us

Pat Robertson, who once warned viewers that they could become the victims of a gay ‘AIDS ring’ attack, lashed out at gay rights advocates on “The 700 Club” this week and accused them of trying to throw their opponents in jail.

Robertson didn’t hold back, warning that gay “terrorists” are launching their own Spanish Inquisition: “These people are terrorists, they’re radicals and they’re extremists. No Christian in his right mind would ever try to enforce somebody against their belief or else suffer jail. They did that during the Inquisition, it was horrible, it was a black mark on our history, but it isn’t being done now.”

Of course, Robertson’s argument relied on a twisted reading of a legal case in Houston, Texas, but that didn’t stop him from attacking the “monstrous” gay rights movement.

Pat Robertson: We Have The Power To Raise The Dead, 'We Just Aren't Using It'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson insisted that he and others have the power to raise the dead, but lamented that people these days are withholding this special skill.

Robertson, who has previously discussed dead-raising abilities, told a viewer, Margaret, that people can raise the dead when they receive and submit to the power of the Holy Spirit.

“That power is there, we just aren’t using it,” Robertson grieved.
