The OC Weekly has some interesting nuggets on Pat Robertson. Here are some crazy things that Pat Robertson did
“1. On the “snowpocalypse” earlier this winter that smacked the Northeast US and Atlantic coast: “Because of the bad road conditions the Almighty has made, any gay activities that people were planning on doing will have to be postponed by a day or two.”
2. On the millions of straight people in New York City who were also grounded by the bad weather: “I think God probably wonders, ‘If these people are really straight, then what are they doing in New York?’”
3. On “Gays Days” at Disneyworld: “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 about terrorist bombs; it’ll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor.”
4. One for the ladies: “[T]he feminist agenda 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 lesbians.”
5. On Haiti’s earthquake last year: “It may be a blessing in disguise. . . . Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. Haitians were originally under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it’s a deal. Ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other.”
6. On the U.S. State Department HQ: “Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up.”
7. On the end-of-the-world bringer: “The Antichrist is probably a Jew alive in Israel today.”
8. On apartheid in South Africa: “I think ‘one man, one vote,’ just unrestricted democracy, would not be wise. There needs to be some kind of protection for the minority which the white people represent now, a minority, and they need and have a right to demand a protection of their rights.”
9. On . . . his 1988 presidential run? “Is there in all the history of human folly a greater fool than a clergymen in politics?”
10. On . . . Pat Robertson? “I have a zero tolerance for sanctimonious morons who try to scare people.”
Whow, he describes lesbians as being ““[T]he feminist agenda 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 lesbians.”
I have never met any lesbians that “has left their husbands, killed their children, and destroyed capitalism”. Personally, most lesbians do not hate me, they love their children, and most of them support the American free enterprise system.
Most of Pat Robertson shows that he engages in contempt of other people without launching a detailed investigation into understanding lesbians and their lifestyles. He does not talk to black people in South Africa and ask them what their experience is like.
The people in Haiti never made a secret pact with the devil. I have never seen any evidence of that. He is making facts without providing detailed references to history.
At the end of the day, Pat Robertson is somebody who makes false claims for the purposes of getting attention. It is all about him. It is about his shocking statements and his supposed piety makes him looks like hypocrite.
If God does exist, he might be saved, but he does not represent the role model of the faith that other Christians that I know personally. Pat Robertson might be make a good fodder for jokes, but he also serves as roadblock towards spreading the Gospel because he might alienate potential followers with his rhetoric. But that is my opinion and my opinion really does not count on that issue.
At the end of the day. He is just crazy. Crazy indeed!
Michelle Bachmann is a knucklehead. She calls the Obama healthcare program as being “Crown Jewel Of Socialism” as shown in the video below
Yes, she calls it the crown jewel of social. And yes, she think that she can be the next President of the United States as reported by the Seattle Post Intelligencer .
If you are going to run for President, you should know where the battle of Concord and Lexington is. Of course, it is in Massachusetts. But Ms. Bachman thinks the subject battle took place in New Hamisphere as repoted by the Associated Press
A President of the United States should have a basic command of United States history. This is a basic fact that is taught in 8th grade history and yet, you cannot remember the location of a Revolutionary War battle. According to the Tea Party, the Revolutionary War was a golden age of America. It was the era of the founders which the Tea Party swear a solemn oath to defend the Constitution.
If you are Tea Party memeber, I expect you to have a significant command of the US history during this period. And that includes the location of key Revolutionary War battles. Lack of knowledge of the subject issues means that you are probably unfit for President. And calling healthcare reform “the crown jewel of socialism” where the primary method of delivery of health care insurance is private health care companies is not socialism.
In a socialist system, the government would be primary method of health care delivery and not private health care. If it is a “crown jewel of socialism”, it would be government-run system. You could call it “corporate socialism” because it benefits large health insurance companies, but it is not true socialism. Therefore, it is not the “crown jewel of socialism” as she claims it to be.
The Republican establishment thinks that she is not qualify to run for President. And calling healthcare reform “crown jewel of socialism” and not knowing the location of major Revolutionary War battle shows that you are not fit to be President.
She needs a lot of work on herself before she can become the right-wing savior of America. There are people far more qualified to hold that title and she ain’t one of them.
While I was at my grandma’s 95th birthday today, my mom remarked that I am getting my first gray hair. Ouch! Getting gray hair! I do not want to get gray hair!
Gray hair makes me look old. And I cannot escape from Father Time. Father Time is reminding that I am headed to towards middle age and there is nothing that I can stop. There is no eternal fountain of youth that can save me.
Now, I am beginning to realize that I am beginning to get too old to date somebody under 30 even before I start to formally date people. I no longer feel young even though I am in very good health and can run up to six miles without real getting tired.
If I was playing sports, I would be an old-timer and looking at the twilight of my career. I would be getting gray hair and no longer the study.
When I look to my friends, the reality is that I do not feel as old. In reality, it is easier for me to get along with people who are in middle ages. Most of the woman that showed interest in me have been usually older than I am.
The reality is that getting older is a mixed bag. You can gain more wisdom about life, but you no longer feel young. The best way to age is age with acceptance. Accept for yourself who are and do not try to live in the glory days of your youth.
I feel that “glory days of my youth” is actually an oxymoron. I believe that my best days are ahead as my social functioning grows and my ability to live my own increases . The ability to have a relationship with the opposite sex will happen when I have the proper social and emotional awareness to do so. I also have to remember at the age of 25, I was not capable of living independently. I was not aware that I had autism and therefore, the tools to help me to deal with my shortcomings were not there at the time.
It might have taken me longer for me to achieve what a normal person achieves in society, but it takes a long time for a autism to bloom into a fully-functioning person in society. And so I accept that I am late bloomer in life and that my best days are in the future, and were not in the past. And turning 34 in three months is not the end of the world, but a start to a new phase in life.
And maybe, I will live to 95 just like my grandma did.
