Pat Robertson Spews Again

[quote] Television evangelist Pat Robertson yesterday described Islam as a violent religion bent on world domination, drawing immediate protests from American Muslims.

Robertson, one of the most powerful figures on the religious right, made the remarks on his Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club." In mid-September, he and fellow evangelist Jerry Falwell sparked controversy by suggesting on the same show that abortionists, feminists, gays and liberal groups were partly responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

After a segment yesterday on the political views of Muslims in America, the announcer, Lee Webb, turned to Robertson and asked: "As for the Muslim immigrants, Pat, it makes you wonder, if they have such contempt for our foreign policy why they'd even want to live here?"

"Well, as missionaries possibly to spread the doctrine of Islam," Robertson answered. "But, ladies and gentlemen, I have taken issue with our esteemed president in regard to his stand in saying Islam is a peaceful religion. It's just not. And the Koran makes it very clear, if you see an infidel, you are to kill him."

Robertson added that "the fact is that our immigration policies are now so skewed to the Middle East and away from Europe that we have introduced these people into our midst and undoubtedly there are terrorist cells all over them."

Islam, he concluded, "is not a peaceful religion that wants to coexist. They want to coexist until they can control, dominate and then if need be destroy."

I am sure he would change his mind if they sent him some money every month. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Like I've said before around here, it's people like Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson that give Christianity a bad name.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Christianity, spawned solely from those two schmoes. Robertson and Falwell almost take an attitude of: If it's not for Christianity, then it's against Christianity. If it's against Christianity it must be evil and full of hatred, because Christianity is love. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

If you REALLY want to hear from good Christian public figures, listen to people like Joyce Meyer, Charles Stanley, and Jack Hayford. They aren't anywhere as close to being right-winged, and they preach the word, not dump on anything and everything that's not Christian.

I don't know who these guys are trying to win over talking this stuff. They're just preaching to the choir, because the only people that watch the 700 club are super right wing christians. And even most of them think the 700 club is extreme.

Pat Robertson is not a very Christian person in the classical sense, and I seriously doubt whether he has even looked inside any book of the Koran.
