A Christian’s take on Pat Robertson January 13, 2010


Pat Robertson seems to think that he can speak for all Christians. He thinks that he is like a prophet of the Old Testament. However, he does not speak for all Christians and he does not speak for me, a fellow Christian.

Robertson has a history of thinking that he speaks for every Christian when he does not. He thinks that he speaks for all Christians in regards to the massive earthquake that happened in Haiti yesterday. Robertson said on his show this morning, the 700 Club, that “something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French, uh, you know Napoleon the 3rd and whatever, and they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, ‘We will serve you if you’ll get us free from the French.’ True story. And so the Devil said, ‘Okay, it’s a deal.’ And, uh, they kicked the French out, you know, with Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by, by one thing after another, desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It’s cut down the middle. On the one side is Haiti on the other side is the Dominican Republican. Dominican Republic is, is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etcetera. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. They need to have and we need to pray for them a great turning to God and out of this tragedy I’m optimistic something good may come. But right now we’re helping the suffering people and the suffering is unimaginable.”

Now is not the time to be saying that Haiti deserves to be hit by a natural disaster.

In 1999, Robertson said to a UK-based newspaper The Guardian that “you’re supposed to be nice to Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Methodists … Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist.” He basically said that these denominations of Christians were filled with the Antichrist spirit.

Perhaps by that token, some of the former presidents of the United States, are “filled with the Antichrist.” Former presidents Ronald Reagen, George W. Bush, and George H.W. Bush were either Presbyterian, Methodist, or Episcopalian.

In 2007, Robertson predicted that a terrible attack of terror on the US would result in “mass killing” in late 2007. That killing or attack never occured.

In 2005, Robertson suggested  an assasination of Venezuela President Hugo Chavez. He later recanted the suggestion.

Robertson has also said, in 2004, that the reason for hurricanes hitting the Florida coast was due to the Gay Days at Walt Disney World.

Now, here is the beef: Gay Days at Walt Disney World is not sponsored by the Walt Disney Company. According to gaydays.com, this event is sponsored by Anheuser-Busch and gaydays.com – not Disney.

Also, since Pat Robertson claims to be a Christian, maybe he never read these Bible verse: John 8:7(KJV) which says “So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Perhaps he also missed the verse in Exodus 20:13 that says “You shall not murder.” This covers wishing someone were dead as well.

Pat Robertson thinks that he can speak on behalf of the Christian community, but instead has forged a negative stereotype of all evangelical christians in the US.

  2. I want to know what exercises can be done using a pull-up bar. What are some techniques that are used? What parts of the body can be worked? If there is a website with this imformation that would be great.

  3. This is one technology that I would love to be able to use for myself. It’s definitely a cut above the rest and I can’t wait until my provider has it. Your insight was what I needed. Thanks

    It does seem that everybody is into this kind of stuff lately. Don’t really understand it though, but thanks for trying to explain it. Appreciate you shedding light into this matter. Keep it up

  5. Usually, I am not awfully fond of politics in general – however, every so often we all have to take notice. There are several excellent points made here, and I’m paying attention – thanks.

  6. “I can’t help but say that seems as though you’ve seized the dead on target substance of the position circumferent. While others appear to have missed the fundamental concept of it all, what is stated prefatorial is cloudless plus dead on. I am not alleging that I harmonise along all details; still, I admit that you did afforded me cause to ponder numerous of the points that I thought that I took for as truehearted beliefs in that affects. said, and it is now for someone like me to think a little more along some of some of main ideas. In summary, I would state I must compliment you for you have written many good points.”

  7. Hi. I just noticed that your site looks like it has a few code errors at the very top of your website’s page. I’m not sure if everybody is getting this same bugginess when browsing your blog? I am employing a totally different browser than most people, referred to as Opera, so that is what might be causing it? I just wanted to make sure you know. Thanks for posting some great postings and I’ll try to return back with a completely different browser to check things out!

    Plus, i am saying as a Christian, that Robertson does not speak for all of Christians. He does not speak for me.

  9. Christina Hildebrand Says:

    I have the sources listed for a reason, so yes I do check facts.

  10. Is all your facts straight? I am not trying to be a jerk, conversely I don’t notice how this makes complete sense! I often have to check the same stupid things out for myself on my own Political Commentary site, here… White Rabbit Cult… but what you wrote is important, and I will place a link back to your post. Peace!
