He's senile. That can happen to the best of us. The reason it's hurting his movement, though, is that the media pretends that he's not senile, and that his senile ramblings represent the views of Christians generally.
It's a shame to watch , he started with nothing and built a vast enterprise for good.
He probably would have served all of us well by just moving on after his political run..
I am thankful for Pat Robertson because he says things that others are afraid to say. I believe he truly is trying to interpret current events through a Biblical perspective.
That doesn't mean he is necessarily always right.
Really. the guy is getting senile.
You are absolutely right on!
I used to watch the 700 Club years ago, finding it an inspiring show, but ever since Pat ran for president, it really changed.
People ought to cut Pat Robertson some slack and stop confusing him with the Pope. Pat's done a lot of good for poor people in the US and starving third-world people around the globe. Pat follows the words of the Bible verbatim. He is a Christian believer. His comments about Sharon were badly timed, but that's what he believes. His remarks about crazy Hugo Chavez were right on the money. No excuses here. When you get into your 70s, you have good days and bad days. My observations of Pat has me wondering whether he has Parkinson's, Alzheimer's some other degenerative mental affliction.
" "It reinforces an image of Christianity as a persecuted religion, a religion that is being hounded by the secularists out of the public square, rather than a dominant and hegemonic force," Britt said.
Sheep in wolves clothing. Yes, Christianity is "hedgemonic". Lefty.
Frankly, he's right about Chavez. And handing over the West Bank and Gaza completely seems to have been a bad move.
A little diplomacy goes a long way.
I wonder if Mr. Dockery went to his brother, Pat Robertson, with his concerns before making this statement?
If not, then Mr. Docery is in biblical sin and needs to repent and ask forgiveness.
Biblical sin ? Last time I checked Pat Robertson wasn't God whatever you think. Pat Robertson is a self important fool with two screws loose who embarasses American Christianity by making arrogant, stupid statements.
When leaders are treated with your level of fawning deference they become self important and arrogant and imagining themselves indispensible to God. Moses did. It was the point where Jim Jones and David Koresh went off the rails into evil.
People talk about Kerry faking his war record. What about "Korean War combat vet Pat Robertson" who actually had his father Senator Robertson, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, get him transferred from the front lines to 'regimental liquour officer' ?
Shouldn't that be, "habit of shooting from the lip"?
I've seen him on tv embarrassing himself. I have no sound idea as to just what's ailing him.
No, I won't cut him any slack!!!
He traded blood diamonds with his buddy Charlie Taylor of Liberian infamy.
He's no Christian, in my book.
