A rumor about Pat Robertson has spead across the internet. Articles have reported that if you are a straight man who grooms yourself well, gets manicures, facials, wears any type of make-up, or are into fashion, you are to blame for the Virginia Earthquake that struck the East Coast on August 23, 2011 according to Evangelist Rev. Pat Robertson of the 700 Club. “All across the Eastern seaboard, there are men who get manicures, wear designer eyewear and know about thread counts. God finds this somewhat gay-like behavior confusing, and He responded by getting mildly peeved.” While no proof can be linked to him actually making this claim, it doesn’t suprise many that it could be true.
Pat Robertson is infamously known for his very religious political views, which he expresses mostly these days on The 700 Club. He is infamous for promoting ideas such as:
- What Nazi Germany did to the Jews is the same thing liberal America is doing now to the Evangelical Christians. “It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians.”
- The feminist agenda is not about equality for women, it’s a socialist and anti-family movement that, “encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
- Islam is an evil religion that we should not embrace with welcoming arms because, “The Islamic people, the Arabs, were the ones who captured Africans, put them in slavery, and sent them to America as slaves. Why would the people in America want to embrace the religion of slavers?“
- To end the oppression of the French, Haitians swore a pact to the Devil. “They said, ‘We will serve you if you will get us free from the French’. True story. And so, the devil said, ‘Okay it’s a deal’. Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other.“
It is a shocker to many that Robertson had a lot of support when he ran for president in 1987, that his books continue to sell, his program viewers are only on the rise, and that he is still a political influence in our nation today. He is just one of many, like Harold Camping who was the predictor of the rapture on May 21, 2011, Sarah Palin, who believed America’s invasion of Iraq was a quest decreed by God, and now the current presidential candidate Michele Bachmann who recently blamed the Virginia earthquake and Hurricane Irene on God’s fury towards the US budget spending.
Pat Robertson’s religious slams have upset the masses before, and the rumor of his warning about “kind of gay men” has gone viral. While no proof can be linked to these statements, because of his past statements, many wouldn’t be suprised if he had made them.
“God looks at people who get their panties in a twist after a little shaking, and He says to Himself, ‘Wow, that’s really kind of gay.‘” (Rumored quote from Pat Robertson).
