Words of wisdom from Pat Robertson the teleevangelist...

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

'The feminist agenda … encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practise witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.'' So says televangelist Pat Robertson, the man the Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, chose to stand alongside at a campaign event last weekend in Virginia. Robertson is notorious for blaming the September 11 attacks on gays, abortions and civil liberties advocates. And during the next day's broadcast of his show The 700 Club, Robertson told a man to move to Saudi Arabia if he wanted his wife to respect him as the rightful head of the household. ''I don't think we condone wife-beating these days,'' Robertson said, but ''you could become a Muslim and you could beat her.''

Is Pat Robertson right? Does feminism ie seeking equality between the sexes lead to women leaving their husbands and killing their children? If Mitt Romney becomes the next US President, will Pat Robertson's ideas influence public policy?

Pat Robertson isn't a Christian. He twists Christian beliefs into soundbites that will get him attention. Anyone ever noticed that they seem to come out just about every 4 - 6 months. Every time the media stops mentioning his name, up pops another stupid and offensive remark. Pat Robertson is no more a Christian than I, a professed atheist. If we could just stop discussing him and his type and covering their blathering in the mainstream media, the world would already be a better place. Most of the time people say shit like he does, then end up getting a mental health assessment. He gets away with it because he cloaks it in faith and a nice suit.

ha when i first read the title my brain saw "Robert Pattinson"...sorry, lol.

okay, now...what the heck?? see, this is why i hate being grouped with Christians (i have somewhat similar beliefs but i'm more of a spiritualist than anything) because fucking crazy people make the news and claim they're Christians. this hate and racism and sexism and bullshit, Jesus didn't preach that! ugh....

i hope to God Romney doesn't become president. the world's just gonna be stuck on the toilet for another four years until someone has the good sense to elect someone who isn't religious and is searching for equality and knows that a family is a family, no matter how many moms or dads a person's got...oh wait...

I'm a feminist and I have a good job, make more than my husband who works and goes to school, and both of my children are alive and healthy.

Yes feminism is the root of societies downfall, now please excuse me as I have to sacrifice the children before going to work with my lesbian devil worshipping lover.

Does anyone know what he says about men leaving their wives? Is that because of feminism too?

Yup, it's feminism that makes women kill their kids. It's totally never some horrible mental illness. Just feminism. LOL. What a crazy ass loony. I wouldn't worry as much about who the president is as I would that some people actually take Pat Robertson seriously. Anybody that agrees with that is just plain nuts. No offense. No wait - do take offense. Because I'm a feminist and if you agree with him than you think I'm some anti-man childhater. So fuck you. rofl.

Pat Robenson is a way for Romney to pull the evangelical christian vote. He needs that conservative block to win. In all truth, I think we pay more attention to the presidential election then we should. The president can't write laws. All they can do is veto. The people who create laws are the senate and the congress. Those elections tend to get less coverage, but really are most likely more important.

I think that Robenson is an IDIOT (and Romney and Oboma too for that matter), but no I don't think that it will influence public policy. Hell we can't get them to agree on a budget- they're going to agree on beating wives? (although if some one suggested that we allow people to beat their husbands I might be voting for them LoL)
