Robertson has, in the past, advocated the violent overthrow of the government elected by the all the voters of this country. The following is from a speech Robertson gave on a Sunday morning in October 2003 at the behest of then President(?) George W. Bush. After reading this, you tell me, is he just insane or is he a religious terrorist?
REVEREND PAT ROBERTSON, PILLAR OF PATRIOTIC CHRISTIAN LOVE, UNVEILS GODLY SEVEN-POINT PLAN TO SAVE AMERICA THROUGH GOVERNMENTAL ANNIHILATION
Statement by Rev. Pat Robertson: Assoc. Director, Presidential Prayer Team
REVEREND PAT ROBERTSON: Good morning. Thank you, thank you. It's my great honor to have accepted the President's invitation to address you all from his personal pulpit on this beautiful autumn Sunday. Now inasmuch as my beloved organization, the Christian Coalition of America, not only bankrolled George W. Bush's campaign, but now also dictates the whole of administration policy, the Commander in Chief is eager for me to set the record straight on a few things.
Recently, the news media has accelerated its long-running campaign to undermine right-wing fundamentalist domination. They are doing this by taking statements of mine out of context, and shamelessly twisting their meaning. Specifically, they are attempting to insinuate that my ideas to nuke the State Department and browbeat Jesus into murdering Supreme Court Justices are somehow unpatriotic. My friends, this could not be any further from the truth.
Anyone who knows me knows that it is in fact because of my intense patriotism and love of people that I work actively to see God's vicious anger dispensed upon anyone who would dare stand in the way of my television network reaping billions in tithes from unemployed trailer-dwelling pre-teen mothers. And that is why today, I trust that by presenting my ideas in their proper context – as part of my comprehensive seven-step plan to save America – that the good Christian people of this country will lift their heads up and bellow, "Amen, brother Pat!"
Amen. He even turned the whole fucking thing into a prayer!
PAT'S SEVEN-STEP PLAN TO SAVE AMERICA FROM NON-FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIAN TRASH I trust this will put everyone at ease, and dispense with any doubts they may have had about my deep-seeded benevolence.
He even turned the whole fucking thing into a prayer!
