Pat Robertson Compares Wiccans to Child Traffickers, Drug Dealers

pat-robertson1I’m just going to go ahead and say it – Pat Robertson is a crazy old coot who just needs to shut the hell up and go away.  I can’t see how anyone takes him seriously.  He’s just a giant bag of crazy.

Which is something he recently proved once again when he advised a caller how to “honor” her mother who was a Wiccan.

Well, Robertson said:

“I think if a parent goes into witchcraft, goes into unlawful behavior, they’re trying to get their child to sell drugs, for example, or they want to get their daughter to engage in prostitution, you name it.  I think they have lost their authority before the Lord. I think they are no longer in that position deserving honor.”

First, we shouldn’t ignore the fact that this supposed “Godly” man just told someone not to honor their mother.  Even though one of the Ten Commandments says, “Honour thy father and thy mother.”

Then there’s the disgusting comparison he makes between someone who might choose to be Wiccan and those who try to get their children to sell drugs or parents who might sell their children for sex.


That might be one of the dumbest comparisons I’ve ever heard.

I don’t care if you might disagree with someone else’s religion, but to go as far as comparing a different spiritual dogma to turning your children into drug dealers or selling them off for sex is absolutely reprehensible.

It’s almost so ridiculous that I wanted to laugh until I realized that this was a real person looking to Pat Robertson for real spiritual advice.

But coming from someone like Pat Robertson, this isn’t anything new.  He’s made a “career” out of spewing absolutely ridiculous and disgusting comments.

For a list of some of my favorites, just go here.

Also in this segment, Robertson advised someone who admitted to having a sexual relationship with a transgender woman to, “Keep your mouth shut.  That’s real simple. You know, all of us did stuff before we were married, but you don’t parade out all your girlfriends or your boyfriends or your sexual encounters or whatever you did.  You just don’t do it.”

Yes, that’s Robertson telling someone to lie.  He’s just full of good, quality values, isn’t he?

People like Robertson are why I don’t consider most conservatives to be Christians.  These recent comments prove exactly why.  When someone was asking a serious question about how to “honor” their mother (despite the fact that their mother was a Wiccan), instead of preaching acceptance, he preached judgement and hate.

And not only that, he openly endorsed violating one of the Ten Commandments by doing so.

It’s this kind of ignorance that astounds me.  Robertson, as a supposed “Christian,” had a choice to preach tolerance, love and acceptance.  Instead he chose to spew hate, ignorance and judgement.

But in the process of giving his “advice,” all Robertson did was prove just how ignorant he really is.
