Pat Robertson Defends Donald Trump's Muslim Immigration Ban

Alluding to a bogus poll issued by an anti-Muslim group which alleged that large swathes of Muslim-Americans oppose the U.S. Constitution, televangelist Pat Robertson came to the defense of Donald Trump today over the GOP presidential candidate’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration. Trump also cited the unscientific survey to justify his call for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

Robertson, who yesterday said that Islam should not be considered a religion but rather a military system that is “intent on dominating and killing you,” warned that Muslim immigrants may bring Sharia law to the U.S., which would lead to the stoning of gay people, spousal abuse and the severing of the hands of criminals.

“Donald Trump said something about keeping people who have those views out of this country and he has been excoriated all over the world,” he lamented.
