Pat Robertson has already apologized for calling for
the assassination of Hugo Chavez, president of
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him,
I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it"
He then compared himself the Protestant theologian,
Dietrich Bonhoffer, who participated in an
unsuccessful plan to assassinate Adolf Hitler:
But the right wing has finally written this cuckoo
off, so maybe I should just drop it.
Then again, there is the Robertson Hit Parade:
This month he prayed to God that "additional vacancies
occur within the Supreme Court."
But aren’t those lifetime appointments? Oh, I get it.
Then there’s my favorite, after September 11th:
Falwell: "What we saw on Tuesday, as terrible as it
is, could be miniscule if, in fact, God continues to
lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to
give us probably what we DESERVE."
Robertson: "Well, Jerry, that's my feeling. I think
we've just seen the antechamber to terror, we haven't
begun to see what they can do to the major
"The ACLU has got to take a lot of blame for this. And
I know I'll hear from them for this, but throwing
God...successfully with the help of the federal court
system...throwing God out of the public square, out of
the schools, the abortionists have got to bear some
burden for this because God will not be mocked and
when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, WE
MAKE GOD MAD."
"I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists
and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who
are actively trying to make that an alternative
lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all
of them who try to secularize America...I point the
thing in their face and say you HELPED THIS HAPPEN."
Robertson: "I totally concur.”
Then there’s Pat on Scotland:
“Scotland is a Dark Land. In Scotland, you can't
believe how strong the homosexuals are. It's just
–- Pat Robertson, June 2, 1999.
The funny thing about that was he said at the very
moment his US bank was trying to do a $48 million deal
with the Bank of Scotland.
Said his embarrassed spokesman: "This deal is not
about Pat Robertson, the religious leader. This is
about Pat Robertson, the businessman."
The deal did not go through.
Then there’s his book, “The New World Order” from
1991, where he outlined a plot to impose "a new order
the human race" dating back to 1776, when Bavarian
scholar Adam Weisphaut founded the Order of the
Illuminati a secret society of "atheists and
Satanists" that, Robertson asserts, was dedicated to
"the elevation to world leadership of a group of
hand-picked 'adepts' or `Illuminati'. The still
control the world today.
And he has a new theory on who killed Abraham Lincoln.
"It is my belief that John Wilkes Booth was in the
employ of the European bankers."
Finally, there’s Pat views on the Equal Rights
I’ve always loved this quote:
"The work of a secret feminist agenda
that is not about equal rights for women.
It is about a socialist, anti-family political
movement that encourages women to leave
their husbands, kill their children, practice
witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become
