My blood boiled when I watched this video of the scum known as Pat Robertson. Watch for yourself.
This made me angry for several reasons. One was because like my girlfriend said he was talking about children like they were animals. What Pat said was like something some yuppy would say about shelter animals. Two, I thought of my nephew who has autism. I thought of how Pat refers to a child with brain damage growing up “weird”. If this child had brain damage and his “dear friend” adopted the child. Then your “friend” is a much better human being than you Patrick. My nephew could have been an orphan and Patrick’s followers would be scared away from helping him because of his condition and Pat’s ignorant ramblings. The third reason it made me so angry is because this festering boil on the flesh of society has the gall to call himself a man of God. A religious vessel, a Christian. Whether you believe in religion or not is your business, but the fact remains that there are millions of people who do. Millions around the world worship and follow some sort of religion. Christianity is arguably the biggest one and Patrick is one of the most well known and most followed figure heads of Christianity… unfortunately. He is a misogynist, a bigot, a homophobe, a liar, and to be blunt a shit stirrer. All of these things he is and unleashes his hateful, fearful, untrue propaganda that he calls gospel in “the name of God”. There is nothing Godly about claiming 9/11 and AIDS was God’s punishment on America for homosexuality and same-sex marriage. There is nothing Godly about saying Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians. There is nothing Godly about saying the state department needs to be nuked, or the earthquake in Haiti that killed countless men, women and children was a “blessing in disguise”.
The worst and most frighting part of all of this is that not only are there people who listen and buy into the bile that spills out of this jerks anus of a mouth. But there are so many people, men and women, just like him. They go to church in their best clothes and jewelry. Preach and pontificate to themselves and others hate, fear and ignorance. They plunk some change or a dollar into the collection plate and then go spend lots of money on themselves at Wal-Mart and/or a restaurant while feeling like good Christians. All the while the Pat Robertsons of the world are driving more and more and more people away from religion. It’s not the devil. He doesn’t need to do it anymore because the hate and ignorance coming out of the mouths of the supposed followers of God do it all for him. Lets look shall we ….
The Westboro church is now infamous for protesting American soldiers funerals. Why do they do this one may ask? Because they were GAY! Oh my goodness how could they have the right to be gay and still fight and die for the country these good Christians live in.
Ahhhh, the Godliness spills out of that man’s pores doesn’t it? I mean when I hear that I just get all warm inside. Nah, that’s my blood boiling. I mean what Bible does this jack off read from? The Bible of I will be a good Christian as long as it doesn’t require any real good-hearted effort? I mean what Patrick said doesn’t sound anything like this guy at all.
For a man who claims to follow Christ, Patrick sure hasn’t learned ANYTHING from him. Neither have countless others who claim to follow him. Jesus didn’t preach hate, or intolerance. From everything I’ve ever seen, heard, or read he looked past the faults of others. He accepted people for what they were and only asked them to do the same as he did. He preached of peace, understanding and equality. Christ knew not everyone is alike or perfect. But he never turned his back and discriminated them for it, especially children. That’s what Patrick has done. He turned his back on and told millions of people who watch his awful program to do the same. He can claim out the other side of his mouth that he and his ministry (I call it a cult) love and help orphans. But his unguarded words say different. To Pat Robertson, the Westboro Baptist church and the ones who act, think, speak, and believe as he does. Don’t blame the devil, or movies, or video games, or the internet, or music, or gays, or anything else for future generations backing away from organized religion. You need to look at yourselves. I think Mahatma Gandhi said it best.
Now a days I would have to agree.
