    I thought it might be kinda fun to post this retort to the "why liberals should keep their mouths shut about religion" thread. I find this man to be soooo amusing! :lol:

    I don't think he's amusing at all. In fact, he gives me nightmares. Once, while watching his show, he said, "Imagine how wonderful if everyone in America were "forced" to convert to Christianity. All of our problems would go away". Then he went on to say he wasn't for "forced" conversion, but was just thinking how wonderful it would be if it happened.

    Pat Robertson Quotes - Stupid Pat Robertson Quotes

    "(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." –Pat Robertson

    "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history." –Pat Robertson

    "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." –Pat Robertson, on the earthquake in Haiti that destroyed the capital and killed tens of thousands of people, Jan. 13, 2010

    Do you have these nightmares frequently? Is Pat Robertson the only person who gives you nightmares, or it this a problem with others?

    Nightmares, huh? You have nightmares about him? I'd see a professional about that.

    Rename the thread to "Why radical theologians should keep their religions to themselves" and maybe we can have an accurate conversation. Nice try though.

    I can guarantee you could find a congressman to put here in pats place that would get the point across though if you did enough digging. Truth is, politicians in general should keep their mouth shut about religion, at least in most cases. I am whatever or I practice this and that is one thing but the vid of Nancy was rather hilarious in its stupidity.

    Pat Robertson legally cons folks out of their $.
    Take a good look at the mansion that dude lives in.
    Hope all the oil does not leak out of the gound and hell so there will be enough in hell to burn ole Pat for a long time. He is crooked.

    As far as I know Pat Robertson has not advocated blowing up any buildings or murdering any women and children in the name of Jesus. Maybe you should be having nightmares about people whose god tells them to blow up buildings full of women and children. That would be more appropriate.
