Pat Robertson's "700 Club" broadcast with guest Jerry Falwell on September 13, 2001:
Jerry Falwell: And, I know that I’ll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out 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 have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say ‘you helped this happen’.
Pat Robertson: Well, I totally concur….
To me, the overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the blood lust of Islamic terrorists. Our second goal should be the control of massive government waste and crushing federal deficits.
Oh, and the article reminds us of a few more of Pat's recent statements:
In recent years, he has advocated the teaching of "intelligent design," described then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke as divine punishment for "dividing God's land," and called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
The only real question is why, in this day and age, would anyone still consider Robertson's endorsement an asset?
