CHRISTIAN PASTOR, PAT ROBERTSON, DAMNS AMERICA

Old Squirrel Brain is at it again.  This time he damns America and predicts God Almighty will destroy her because people who love each other have been granted the civil right to marry.

I'm posting on this because of the double standard going on here.  Robertson harangs his audience about the passage of legislation in New York and warns that the god he and his millions of viewers believes in will destroy America because of it. 

That is damnation.

Pat Robertson damned America.

Remember how the conservatives were all over Mr. Obama for attending a church where the Rev. Wright damned America?  I wonder who, on the right, will be the first to denounce Robertson for doing the very same thing?

From The Raw Story:

"Television evangelist Pat Robertson responded to New York’s decision to legalize same sex marriage by warning Monday that the result would be America’s destruction.


“I think we need to remember the term sodomy came from a town known as Sodom and Sodom was destroyed by God Almighty and the thing that they practiced was homosexual activity and even they tried to rape angels who came down there, so that’s the kind of people they were,” Robertson said. God “sent an angel down there and He said to Lot and his family, ‘get out now because I’m gonna destroy this whole area.’”

“We’re heading that way as a nation. In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, ‘what’s going to happen to America?” Well if history is any guide, the same thing’s going to happen to us,’” he predicted.

Robertson also admitted that Jesus “didn’t say anything about the homosexuality.”

All religious "morality" boils down to "Stop doing that, because my imaginary friend doesn't like it!"

That's all they've got. So now all they can do is amp it up. "Stop doing that, or else my imaginary friend will kill you!"

Ask Robertson why God didn't destroy us 200 years ago for slavery, or 120 years ago for the Indian genocide.

What does Mr. Robertson say about the poor and sick, the hard workers being used to enrich the wealthy? This damnation stuff is not improving the world or saving anyone.

Sorry about comment moderation.

I had a number of idiot trolls come to my post on NY passing gay marriage bill.

Apparently the morons can't deal with progress, so they react to it by posting stupid anti-gay comments on liberal blogs.

Too bad stupidity doesn't hurt.

Only Pat knows the true mind of God. I thank him for revealing it to us. Best I can tell, He and Pat were made for each other.

I think this isn't the first time Ol' Squirrel Brain has damned America. It's a habit of his now.

Infidel753,

One of the strangest phenomenon concerning people's imaginary friends is the conflicting rules about head coverings.

The Catholics once made it a rule that women had to cover their heads, but men had to take off their hats in god's house. But the Pope always wears a yarmulke. The Jewish faith requires men to wear a hat [yarmulke] in temple and women don't have to. The Muslims, depending on what sect they're in, require either full coverage [head to toe] or partial--just the head of women, and men to wear beards.

It's always amazed me that religionists believe that an almighty creator of the unimaginably vast universe would care a monkey's tail about what humans put on their heads when worshipping him.

Charlene,

Robertson seems to be interested only in what goes on between two consenting adults. He hasn't time for the poor and the sick.

Nance,

As I said, there's a double standard here. Warning Americans that their Christian God will destroy their country is claiming that their god is damning America for showing equality and justice to a group of its citizens.

Looney.
