Head Case

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….

Pat Robertson, announcing his endorsement of Rudy Giuliani's Presidential bid on November 7, 2007:

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.

What a difference six years makes. So here is Pat endorsing a pro-abortion politician. I'm also pretty sure Rudy doesn't qualify as anti-feminist (outside his personal life, at least). And if being a fallen-away Catholic "Mary-worshiper" from New York City doesn't qualify as a "pagan" in Righteous Right circles anymore, then the world has really turned.

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.

Then there was his suggestion to the people of Dover, Pennsylvania ...

The only real question is why, in this day and age, would anyone still consider Robertson's endorsement an asset?
