4. if

slavery was still the law of the land, this POS would be telling the slaves to accept their slavery because they would get their pie in the sky. He missed the boat!

6. Hey, Pat, do something good for a change. Admit that God loves Obama and the rest of us Democrats.

Come on Pat, you can do it.

Just repeat after me:

OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA!

See, it wasn't that hard, was it?

By the way, Obama loves you, too, dude.

8. Maybe Pat should stick to scripture and pray for those in authority.

There's also the verse that says "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." Think what he could accomplish just by praying! Oh, wait...maybe he doesn't fit the description... Actually, I have my doubts he even reads the bible anymore. What a waste of space he is. Truly sad that anyone heeds his words or worst of all, sends him their money.

9. Abe Lincoln?

Um- no, Sorry, Abe Lincoln wasn't the first. Abe was quoting scripture when he used the phrase.

Please, if you are going to bash wing-nuts, please do so with at least some knowledge of things biblical before going off. (NASB version)


1. Matthew 12:25
And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand.

2. Luke 11:17
But He knew their thoughts and said to them, Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls.

3. Mark 3:25 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 25 " If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand."


There is plenty to bash Robertson for, but mistaking Abe Lincoln for New Testimate scripture isn't one of them.

11. That existed before Lincoln and probably before the Bible. Glad you called it.

Pat Robertson is too full of himself. He should step back from his pride. Thinking he understands the enigma of a religious god is foolish and dangerous.

15. Was it God that told you to steal the pledges from your "700 Club" members? ITS TIME TO CONFESS!

How Pat Robertson converted a tax-exempt charity into $90 million for himself and his son

...Robertson, who is nothing if not innovative, founded the Family Channel in 1977 as a division of CBN. The first basic-cable television network to be carried by satellite, its primary purpose was to bring Robertson's religious programming to a national market. To fill in the remaining time, it also broadcast old family-oriented movies and television programs like Father Knows Best and The Waltons. By 1989, the Family Channel had become so profitable that it threatened CBN's tax-exempt status.

So that year, Robertson. his son Tim, and John Malone, the founder of Tele-Communications, Inc., the country's largest cable operator, undertook a classic leveraged buyout of the Family Channel. Malone put up $45 million, Robertson and his son invested a total of $183,000, and their shell corporation issued CBN $250 million in convertible debt. " actually approached us," Malone said in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year . " said, 'If you'll make an investment in my channel, I'll be able to restructure it, take it out of the church, pay the church for the channel, and retain the format.'"

Just how good a deal this was for the Robertsons can be seen from the fact that in the LBO, they bought 1.5 million shares of a special variety of the company's common stock for 2.2 cents a share. At the subsequent public offering in 1992, the stock was valued at fifteen dollars a share. The very year that Robertson had prophesised upheaval in the stock market, he and his son converted their $183,000 investment into shares of stock worth $90 million.

Robertson vigorously defends the deal. But critics have complained that using charitable contributions made to a tax-exempt organization to create a profit-making enterprise and then selling that enterprise to yourself is, while legal, shamelessly unethical. In introducing a bill last year that would, as he put it, restrict such "self-dealing," California congressman Pete Stark attacked the Robertson LBO, saying, "Assets accumulated by organizations enjoying tax-exempt status are being raided through certain business transactions."..
