Classic Quote

// 15 September 2005

I wanted to quickly share this little gem from Rev. Pat Robertson, courtesy of popbitch:

“This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards […] Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres’ hometown? […] God already allows one awards show to promote the homosexual agenda. But clearly He will not tolerate such sinful behavior to spread beyond the Tonys.”

Rev. Robertson has recently been criticized for saying he thought the US special forces should assassinate the Venezuelan President, Hugo Ch\xE1vez.

Some of you may remember Pat\x92s other classic quote \x96 adorning feminist fridges everywhere:

“Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

Southern Baptist Rev. Robertson, then Senator Robertson, ran for the Republican nomination against Bush Snr in 1998. 3 million people volunteered for his campaign. Find out more about the man in his own words here. What a loser.
