What the….HUH? Pat Robbinson and Iggy

November 2, 2007

No, Pat Robertson did not talk about me… in fact I vaguely heard about Ellen DeGeneres having some trouble in some dog adoption thing, but I thought it was some big joke she was playing and did not look to close at it… but I had a weird search that had “Pat Robertson Iggy” and at first thought in some narcissistic stupor I quickly over came, that PR had spoken about me! Did he quote me on the “700 Club”? LOL! (None of that really happened but I just wanted some of my favorite people out there to think that for a moment as they probably already did! LOL!)

Then I read the quote…

“It is God’s will for dogs to grow up in a loving home with a Dad and a Mom and I strongly praise [pet adoption agency] Mutts & Moms for removing Iggy from a harmful lesbian environment,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club” on Friday. (I searched for the best source on the quote and this one had the least comment… believe it or not!)

Now, some were saying that PR was even saying that he was going to get the president to push legislation through to prohibit same couple adoption of most other animals…

“The plain fact is that same sex couples should not be allowed to raise dogs, fish, birds, hamsters, ferrets, lizards, or any other animal. “However, cats are the exception from the rule because “only liberals and pagans would ever want to raise those spawn of Beelzebub.” (This source had more comments that seemed at least funny to me)

I agree about the cats…

Yet… if not offensive enough (if not silly) Pat Robertson who apparently can leg press an impressive 1000 lbs, says Jesus will not come into fat peoples hearts anymore! (I am just trying to see how close people look at the source of these comments)

Now, it seems that it is getting harder and harder to take anything seriously from PR these days. In fact there is not much difference from the “made up quotes” and the real ones… here is some examples collected by John Bill :

Pat on woman’s rights:
“Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

Pat on 9/11:
“We have insulted God” with legal abortion and restrictions on religion in public places. “Then we say ‘why does this happen?’ Well, why it’s happening is that God Almighty is lifting his protection from us.”

Pat on the courts:
“The Supreme Court is bringing upon this nation the wrath of God” by ruling in favor of abortion rights and gay rights.

Pat on other churches:
“You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist.”

Pat on gay people:
“Many of those people involved with Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals–the two things seem to go together.” -Note: Adolf Hitler was a practicing Catholic.

Pat on other TV channels:
“Popular television is flooded with filth and violence; MTV, VH-1, and pop radio stations are sewers of obscenity, rebellion and violence; pop magazines promote the vilest forms of pornography and a form of materialism, selfishness, and greed that has fallen to the lowest levels in human history.” -Note: Nobody on the Real World-Austin has called for hits on democratically elected leaders.

Pat on private property and banking:
“Modern experience has shown that usury inevitably leads to subservience. And God did not want that for his people but rather intend for them to rule…He directed that every 50 years, all debt would be cancelled, all property would be redistributed, and the cycle would begin again. Notwithstanding the sneers of many in the banking community, it may be that God’s way is the only one open to us – a year of jubilee to straighten us out. -Note: Pat has yet to redistribute his or The 700 Club’s money.

Now, I am not meaning to bash Pat Robertson. I see his quotes are actually reprehensive (oops this should be representative but after some thought I think I like this word better! LOL!) of many people out there on the conservative Christian right… It is not that PR is “all” wrong… in fact within most, (OK some maybe?) of these quotes there is a kernel of truth. It is the thoughtlessness in the delivery that really kind of makes it hard to take the man serious.

Be blessed,
