Because you haven’t heard Pat Robertson say anything really stupid since… well, since this, which happened a mere three days before the story you’re about to read: “Pat Robertson: Out! Out, You Demons of Goodwill!.”
Is it just us, or is Pat getting weirder, faster…? (more…)

Because you haven’t heard Pat Robertson say anything really stupid lately…
Of course, if you haven’t heard Pat Robertson say anything really stupid lately, that’s probably because you don’t listen to Pat Robertson every day. And neither do we — we haven’t the luxury of sitting around laughing all day. (more…)
Metro Weekly reports that Pat Robertson‘s theocratic ACLU knock-off, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), has fired senior counsel James Henderson “after reports surfaced on the Internet that he may have had romantic relationships with younger men.”
Bullet points from an aticle in the Patriot-Ombudsman flesh out Henderson’s “Apparent Double Life” — “Conservative Stalwart, Stood with Terri Schaivo‘s Parents … Defender of (more…)
“Pat Robertson, the Baptist televangelist, who readers may remember for blaming 9/11 on secularists, has come out with an equally inventive explanation for the Wisconsin atrocity. The culprits, he speculated, were ‘people who are atheists; they hate God, they hate the expression of God, and they are angry with the world, angry with themselves, angry with society, and they take it out on innocent people who are worshipping God.’ (more…)
We’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever. Yet while we celebrate one of those rare moments in which we see that the long arc of the moral universe does indeed bend toward justice, we can’t help but wonder: What must Pat Robertson be thinking right now?
What? You mean you didn’t know Pat Robertson, that supreme judge of all things moral and immoral, invested between $8 million and $15 million (allegedly CBN [Christian Broadcasting Network] and/or PTL money) in Liberian blood diamonds, giving Liberia’s murderous dictator Charles Taylor a 10% share in Reverend Pat’s Freedom Gold, Ltd., — or that Pat allegedly used his own “humanitarian” air fleet to move those dirty diamonds out of Africa (“Operation Blessing’s tax-exempt cargo planes were used almost exclusively for Roberton’s diamond-mining operation, not for humanitarian purposes“), and allegedly lobbied the Bush administration to support the Taylor regime? (All of which Pat denies! Denies, he tells you! Denies, denies, denies!) (more…)
“Individual Christians are the only ones really — and Jewish people, those who trust God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob — are the only ones that are qualified to have the reign, because hopefully, they will be governed by God and submit to Him.”
— Pat Robertson, “The 700 Club,” January 11, 1985
Pat Robertson, who somehow managed to stay out of Conservative Babylon for nine years, suddenly can’t seem to escape these unholy halls. If he’s not endorsing non-procreative molar-rattling or pushing for pot legalization, he’s coming thisclose to saying an imprecatory prayer* against Peyton Manning because he doesn’t like the “shabby” way his boy, incurable and thoroughly obnoxious Bible-beater Tim Tebow, has been treated. (That tellls you how invasive the name Tim Tebow is; we can’t stand football, and try to know as little about it as possible, but we certainly know who Tebow (more…)
Pat Robertson is a big, fat hypocrite. Okay, so he’s not all that big (unless we’re talking figuratively, as in: among all the sad, blue-haired little old ladies who keep sending him a chunk of their Social Security checks every month), and he isn’t very fat anymore. But he is definitely a hypocrite. That’s a fact. And here are some more facts…
Charles McVety and “Word TV,” replete with laughably useless “Doctor” title
and giant-haired, blonde, vacant-eyed co-host-wife, staples for every whack-e-vaneglist show, from Nunavut to Miami.
Or: If We Were Taking Bets on Who’ll Be Caught Someday with a Dead Girl or a Live Boy…
We’ll be lazy and start you off with the Wikipedia rundown — which covers everything quite nicely — and then tell you why Charles McVety is on our radar right now: (more…)
