Televangelist Pat Robertson seems to be under the impression that liberals in America are advocating for the implementation of Islamic law, telling “700 Club” viewers today that liberals “want to rebel against the established order” that is “basically Christian” and replace it with Islamic fundamentalism.
“So here comes an ideology out of Saudi Arabia, 7th Century Saudi Arabia, talking about persecution of women, cutting off hands, decapitating people, butchering whole populations because they happen to share a different faith and the so-called Left is saying, ‘this is the ideology we want,’” Robertson said. “And you say, are you crazy? This is an outrageous return to barbarism. You want to turn away from your freedom that has brought this tremendous civilization to you and you want to undermine it? Well that is exactly what the Left is doing. It is doing it in America, it is doing it in Germany, it is doing it all over Europe. This is not some crusade for freedom, it is a return to bondage.”
“Don’t think this is the new freedom folks, it isn’t,” he added.
