So, the geriatric hatemonger, Pat Robertson has done it again. Instead of just shutting up and going back to fleecing his flock of their hard-earned pennies, Robertson just has to pipe up and show that he’s firmly in step with the ugly side of Christianity. That is if you can call people like this Christian – I’m sure a certain Jewish gentleman is spinning in his grave.
I suppose we need to take into account that this a man unaccustomed to engaging what passes for his brain before speaking. How else can you justify such pearls of wisdom as:
Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.
His current waffle isn’t much better either. Even worse, he’s gone and jumped feet first into the whole God’s Own Quarterback “drama.” For those of you who don’t know, GOQ is one Tim Tebow, a shockingly bad quarterback, better know for his Public Displays of Godbothering, than his playing ability. It also so happened that his team had a pretty decent run in the Super Bowl, making it to the play-offs, against most expectations. Needless to say, to the dribbling fucktards, this was a sign of God’s glorious bounty, rewarding Tebow for his piety. Of course, God moves in mysterious ways, because when it came down to the crunch, God was clearly elsewhere, because Tebow’s team were soundly thumped.
Now, for reasons known only to the Bronco’s management, but probably spurred on by Tebow’s awful stats, they decided to part ways with the second-rate quarterback.
Needless to say, this had the fundies frothing at the mouth, and I described racist bigot and Conservapedia founder Andrew Schlafly’s reaction in the post below. Something like this plays straight into the hands of the massive persecution complex these people have – Tebow is not being traded because he’s crap, he’s being traded because of his religion – it’s the liberals who want him out. Once again, I find myself wondering how these people breathe without instructions.
Needless to say, the Broncos needed somebody to fill… or rather eclipse, seeing as they’re so small, Tebow’s boots. The man they chose for the job is one Peyton Manning. Compared to Tebow, Manning has a very impressive CV, including MVP on 4 occasions. He did miss the 2011 season, however, because he underwent a level one cervical fusion procedure and although I’m no follower of the sport, I would have thought 36 is getting a bit long in the tooth to be a player.
Which brings us back to this odious creature, Robertson. His take on the whole matter is:
OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.
So this so-called man of God is essentially hoping that something bad happens to Manning, purely so he can turn around and say “See! That’s God’s punishment for dropping Tebow!” Couldn’t this malignant scumbag at least target his ire at the Broncos? All Manning did was accept a job offer, but in true “Bible-believing” Christian style, Robertson and his kind are quite willing to wish harm on those with whom they disagree.
While I’m at it, here’s a few more gems from this prize moron:
I know one man who was impotent who gave AIDS to his wife and the only thing they did was kiss.
I mean, George Bush is a man of prayer. He talks to the Lord. He tries to get his direction from the Lord.
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.
I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected him from your city. And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there.
The last is particularly ironic, because that was in response to the good people of Dover, PA, threw out a school board that had implemented an “intelligent” design policy… which supposedly has nothing to do with religion.
