Pat Robertson: Gays use rings to spread AIDS

Source: WPXI.com

Televangelist Pat Robertson has made some curious comments about gays, AIDS and jewelry.
While the comments were made yesterday (Tuesday), they were quickly removed from the Christian Broadcast Network's website.

Robertson:
You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got [AIDS] they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger. Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.

You can't make this shit up.
Pat -- the gift of idiocy that keeps on giving.
At least CBN removed it quickly, but maybe they should think about removing HIM. An embarrassment to Christians everywhere.

8. It's true!

“There are laws now... I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction," he continued.

It's true Pat. I was discussing AIDS on a subway platform yesterday, and suddenly I felt handcuffs clamped on my wrists. "You're under arrest," said the cop. I'm now awaiting trial. I wonder if you could post bond, using some of the millions you bilk from the idiots who believe all the BS that dribbles out of your mouth.

23. He owned CBN and ABC Family. He claimed combat experience, but it turned out he lied. His daddy, a

Senator, got him out of that role and got him a bunny job as a "liquor officer." He was in charge of making sure the officer clubs never ran dry. He also claimed "battle stars" for his time fighting in Korea. That is also a lie.

"We did long, grueling marches to toughen the men, plus refresher training in firearms and bayonet combat." In the same year, he transferred to Korea, "I ended up at the headquarters command of the First Marine Division," says Robertson. "The Division was in combat in the hot and dusty, then bitterly cold portion of North Korea just above the 38th Parallel later identified as the 'Punchbowl' and 'Heartbreak Ridge.' For that service in the Korean War, the Marine Corps awarded me three battle stars for 'action against the enemy.''' Pat Robertson

wouldn't such a ring only work when the handshake is performed with a strong, manly grip, and not the limp wristed touchy-feely finger touches that those gheys use to greet people with?

27. "some in the gay community"

Its estimated that about 10% in the LGBT community have HIV. But somehow less than 10% is "some" - yeah your clueless Pat. Nice fantasy of being persecuted. I guess I could say "Some in the christian community go around killing gay men" and be accurate.

No one takes him seriously, so when he propagates fundamentalist BS like this, it falls on deaf ears. If someone with slightly more sanity took his place, people might actually listen to them.
