Pat Robertson once again pandered to right-wing evangelicals on the 700 Club Monday morning, telling them exactly what they wanted to hear–that if they refuse to believe the evidence of evolution, God will bless them with more miracles. You know, like he does for people who live -outside- of the United States border, according to Pat’s delusional logic.
Pat knows that if people continue to be taught critical thinking skills in schools across America, they will see the hypocrisy that is the Christian Right. His income relies on the fact that his audience is uneducated, and wants to be fed the kinds of propaganda and ignorance necessary for them to continue being in the dark. That is the only way they can deny the truth about the world around them, including evolution. From the show:
“People overseas didn’t go to Ivy League schools,” “We’re so sophisticated, we think we’ve got everything figured out. We know about evolution, we know about Darwin, we know about all these things that says God isn’t real.”
“We have been inundated with skepticism and secularism,” “And overseas, they’re simple, humble. You tell ‘em God loves‘em and they say, ‘Okay, he loves me.’ You say God will do miracles and they say, ‘Okay, we believe him.’”
“And that’s what God’s looking for. That’s why they have miracles.”
