Pat Robertson: Leftists use abortion to make straight women equal with lesbians
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 10:50 PM by RamboLiberal
Television evangelist Pat Robertson said Monday on ABC Family's The 700 Club that progressives support legal access to abortion because they want to make straight women equal with lesbians.

While discussing why President Barack Obama supported the funding of Planned Parenthood, Robertson said the far left supported a "culture of death" that was "livid about killing babies."

"If a woman is a lesbian, what advantage does she have over a married woman? Or what deficiency does she have?" he asked his co-host, Terry Meeuwsen.

"Well, she cant have children," Meeuwsen answered.

"Thats exactly right," he said. "And so if these married women dont have children, if they abort their babies, then that kind of puts them on a level playing field. And you say, nobodys there to express that? Isnt that shocking? Well, think about it a little bit ladies and gentlemen."

5. So...
being childless is an advantage and lesbians are superior to straight, married women?

Okay, Pat. Sounds fine to me.

8. Lesbians can't have babies?
the rest of this is so much garble, I can't even follow it. But that statement did stand out as the stupidest in a long stream of stupid.

Considering they're a same-sex female couple, with a baby on the way.

10. WE Should IGNORE SENILE faux-religious rabble rousers.
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 11:41 PM by Mimosa
Are we dumb fish who bite at idiot bait?

Jerry Falwell? Dead and despised by his own flock as far as I'm concerned. Pat Robertson: senile. When will DUers stop wasting our time repeating their senile irrelevant pronouncements? The 20 and 30 year old Christians don'r care about them. I have been trying to persuade US to not give these Zombies publicity. I seriously wonder about people who waste OUR TIME posting stories about the old geezers.

PLEASE STOP IT!You who post the Franklin Graham stories are giving them publicity they did not earn! Their ideas are stale.

28. They are the leading voices of the Faith Community....
Let's go back to the 08 Primary, shall we? When Barack Obama reached into the 700 Club talent pool and hired as personal surrogate a 'minister' who on that program had called for war on gay people, accused us of 'trying to kill children' and so forth. When the GLBT community raised hell about this slander, we were informed by Obama that such 'ministers' were speaking for the faith community, for 'good, decent and moral people'. He said he had no intention of apologizing for using such a minister as surrogate, and in fact he swore that such people would always be at his table.
Here on DU I was told that the anti gay preachers were needed to prove Obama's 'bona fides' to the faith community.
So if you have issues with the truth being spoken, take it up with Barack Obama, Josh DuBois, Donnie McClurkin, Kirbyjon Caldwell, Rick Warren, Leah Daughtry. In short, clean your own damn house, because those of us who do not buy that hate filled dogma are not going to play silent chumps for the sake of your religious sensibilities. If your own offend you, that is so very much not my concern. In fact, it thrills me. Because you should be angry at all of the hate preachers who destroy the image of your faith. They are the face of your community. It has no better face. I mean, really, what do the faithers do that sets them apart, other than slandering minorities and whining about women having choice?
Silence=Death Knowledge = Life

40. Pat Robertson himself may be old and senile
But his ideas are NOT going away. In fact, the new generation coming up in the RW "spiritual-warfare" cults are far worse.


Read 'dogemperor''s posts at Daily Kos. S/he is a Dominionist/NeoPentecostal walkaway who has done years of terrifying research so we don't have to.

http://dogemperor.dailykos.com /


Read Jeff Sharlet's book 'The Family.' http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&biw=943&bih=414&sa=X...

Robertson and Falwell came out of a tradition that existed before they were born and will continue to exist after Robertson is dead. And in fact, it's getting more and more hateful than it was even in those particular celebrities' heyday.

14. Umm perhaps he doesn't understand biology
just because a woman is a lesbian doesn't mean that her ovaries and uterus can't create and bear a child.

They get dumber and dumber don't they?

33. Not so. He understands biology; he just can't talk about it
See, Robertson thinks that God prevents lesbians from getting pregnant by physically keeping them from being impregnated. This is done by God himself with something that looks like a rubber dam that dentists use, except it's DOWN THERE. The problem is, it's called a God Dam, so Robertson is prevented from mentioning it, since he'd burn in hell for an eternity for the crime of Phonetically Taking God's Name in Vain.

16. Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Robertson gets more stupid as time goes on. :evilgrin: I didn't think it was possible, but the guy just keeps outdoing himself.

I chose not to have kids when I was in high school. BEST CHOICE I EVER MADE!

I have never regretted it.

And I am glad to know that "lesbian(s) have an advantage over married women". :evilgrin:

Nice to see fundy fanatic idiots admitting that conventional marriage, the way they want it to be for women, is not advantageous.

Yes, I know that most marriages are not like what the backwards religious want.

Methinks ol' Pat kinda slipped here. Didn't quite make the point he thought he was making. :evilgrin:

17. When the sheep skip down the football field...
...you just know that bananas won't be able to weave lamps through the traffic.

Is that what Pat Robertson said immediately AFTER he made the lebian-abortion comment?

If so, the sheep comment made more sense!

21. Robertson's not even trying anymore. He's just jamming words and sentences together.
All those faculties he used for years to prey on the gullible have fled him, I guess.

24. Where does he come up with garbage like this? There isn't anything
factual in any of those statements. Any logical, reasonable person could see that. I know he has a following, but tell me again how anyone takes this seriously.

29. Republican politicians should be asked whether they agree with such statements.
Everytime Robertson or his ilk goes into crazy mode like this, it's an opportunity to embarrass "mainstream" Republicans. Many of them won't dare to disagree publicly with Robertson, for fear of alienating the religious right. On the other hand, they won't want to endorse his ravings, thereby revealing themselves to be either spineless panderers or outright fools.

I assume that most of them will try to dodge the question. At a minimum, it should be entertaining to listen to them squirm in front of the microphones.

30. We've got a winner
As long as Democrats have to answer for everything Saul Alinsky ever wrote or said 40 years ago, I think it's totally consistent to find out what Republicans think of one of their own, a former Republican candidate for the nomination for President of these here United States, and what he said just this month.

Another can't-lose scenario: Either they deny Pat or they jump into the crazy pit with him. They can therefore piss off either the Big Money Boyz or their lunatic base, but they can't serve both masters.

No abortions necessary. And my lesbian friends have been popping out babies all over the place.
