    Amazing! Pat Robertson, the 2,000 leg-presser?... The creator of the age-defying protein shake?... He is suddenly now the go-to guy for the MSM (and their voice of reason) when it comes to Ken Ham and his debate w/Bill Nye? Pat Robertson: Marginalized to Oracle[ized] in a flash! And in Virginia, not Delphi, of all places, too! BTW, isn't Bill Nye one of those Anthropogenic Global Warming guys, and a believer that man is the main cause of Gorebal Warming?

    Creationist Ken Ham is having his 15 minutes, following a live debate on evolution held between himself and Bill Nye The Science Guy on Tuesday. And while youd expect most folks to deem Nye the winner (which they have), Ham is receiving criticism from a source you might not expect: televangelist Pat Robertson. On the Wednesday edition of his TV show, The 700 Club, Robertson indirectly implored Ham to put a sock in it, criticizing Hams view that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. Lets face it, there was a bishop [James Ussher] who added up the dates...

    Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson recently told a viewer that he has cured deafness through prayer in the past and that he did not know what she was "doing wrong" in her effort to do the same. On a Wednesday episode of the Christian Broadcasting Network program "The 700 Club," Robertson received a letter during the "Bring it on" segment from the mother of a deaf child. "My son is hearing impaired and cannot hear at all. I have prayed for his healing; it seems as if God is hearing-impaired. What am I doing wrong?" read the letter, signed by a...

    VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, July 31, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) Two days after saying he found nothing sinful about sex-change operations, televangelist Pat Robertson said contraception is a very important part of humanity that would prevent the birth of too many Appalachian ragamuffins. He also said that Natural Family Planning violated the provisions of the Old Testament. On today's episode of the 700 Club, a woman asked whether the use of birth control is sinful, something about which Catholics and Protestants disagree. When Robertson's co-host, Wendy Griffith, said not all families could afford to have multiple children, Robertson replied, That's the big...

    Christian Broadcast Network leader and personality Pat Robertson, 83, is known for his controversial commentary. And his most recent remarks about the transgender community are no exception. Contrary to what one might expect, though, he struck an understanding tone in addressing these individuals and even made some comments about sin that will raise eyebrows. When a viewer named David wrote in to ask how he should refer to two female co-workers who are transgender and who have surgically changed sexes, Robertson delivered some surprising advice. Robertson called the procedure radical and proceeded to make the most intriguing and controversial...

    The Senate is embroiled in another dog fight this week. For the first time in American history, it appears we will have a filibuster of a Presidential nominee for Secretary of Defense. The full Senate is expected to vote on the nomination of Chuck Hagel this Friday. Democrats are claiming to have enough votes to confirm Hagel, but Republicans are planning to block the vote with a filibuster. The filibuster is being led by Republican Senator James Inhofe from Oklahoma and is supported by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina along with other Republican senators. Republicans have raised serious...

But this time, what's unusual is the subject matter: adoption. Robertson recently expressed affirmation on The 700 Club for men who don't want to date women who have children adopted from foreign countries, notes Associated Baptist Press. His comments -- including, "You dont have to take on somebody elses problems" -- provoked a strong rebuke from Russell Moore, a Southern Baptist Theological Seminary dean who has become a prominent advocate for adoption.

While speaking on the air on CBNs The 700 Club, he said that GOP candidates are being pushed into positions that they wont be able to successfully defend in the 2012 general election. This comment is especially intriguing because Robertson, himself, was once a GOP presidential contender. Also, the famous religious broadcaster recently claimed that he will no longer be making political endorsements. One wonders if he has dissatisfaction with the GOP or if his views have moderated over time or,...

"I just don't know how anyone who is reading Scripture or is even familiar with the traditional wedding vows can come out with a statement like that."

    Earlier, I posted a thread from Al Mohler's blog titled "Does God Hate Haiti?" I made the mistake of posting the whole blog rather than the excerpt highlighting Mohler's main points. Many freepers made assumptions about Mohler's Biblical insight based on the title and first few paragraphs without reading the ENTIRE article. Mohler is simply reminding believers GOD is in control of all things, whether we fully understand His reasons or not. "We have no right to claim that God was surprised by the earthquake in Haiti, or to allow that God could not have prevented it from happening." Mohler...

    CBN ^ | 1/13/10 | Chris Roslan
    On todays The 700 Club, during a segment about the devastation, suffering and humanitarian effort that is needed in Haiti, Dr. Robertson also spoke about Haitis history. His comments were based on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion led by Boukman Dutty at Bois Caiman, where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed. Dr. Robertson never stated that the earthquake was Gods wrath. If you...

    A short distance from the city of Norfolk you will find Pat Robertson's CBN complex in Virginia Beach. Locals have been both blessed and embarrased by his religious musings. It seems, when it comes to disasters, Pat Robertson is quite outspoken. "I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring...
  • Haitian Voodoo

    Roman Catholicism may be the nominal faith in Haiti but voodoo is the true national religion. Closely related to this is the common practice of santeria, animal sacrifice. The most egregious African superstitions have merged with a superficial and distorted version of Christianity to produce a primordial blend of arrant nonsense that has created a cult of barbarism. Haiti is not the most impoverished and backward nation in the Western hemisphere simply by happenstance. It remains, as it always has, beyond the pale of civilization. And all the romanticizing of the Haitian people by the MSM won't change that reality.

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and televangelist Pat Robertson are being scolded for their comments in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake in Haiti that has killed tens of thousands, according to early estimates. Critics from both the left and right are denouncing their remarks as insensitive to the disaster and attempts to score political points off human tragedy.... Limbaughs comments have been widely panned. "They are deeply insensitive," said conservative commentator Pat Buchanan on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The president speaks for the country when he says we're going to go in there, he said. You want your whole nation,...

    It is all too easy, seeing the appalling scenes from Port-au-Prince yesterday, to forget America's historic debt to Haiti, scene of the first successful slave revolt, which defined the destiny of Africans in the New World. The establishment of the first black independent state had tangible consequences. It denied Napoleon his foothold in the Caribbean and led him to sell New Orleans and the Louisiana territories to Jefferson. But, for as long as anyone can remember, Haiti has been treated as a basket case where corruption, gang violence and natural disaster combine to drag the country backwards. Now an earthquake...

    Via Breitbart, the Robertson storys almost out of gas but a rejoinder this clever deserves wider airing. Most were content to hammer Reverend Pat yesterday for blaming the victims, but this guys after bigger game. If youre trying to divine divine will by tracing a cause-and-effect line between certain historical data points, how do you know which data points to select? Does Haiti get no credit in the heavenly ledger for overthrowing a slaveholder regime and thereby bringing about the conditions for the U.S. to purchase the Louisiana territory? If not, if thats spoiled by their, ahem, pact with the...
