Pat Robertson Claims Educated People Receive Fewer Miracles from God

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.”

    Just think! If nobody is a skeptic, nobody will question miraculous claims. With nobody to investigate, every CLAIM of a miracle BECOMES a miracle. You can’t lose!

  • Yes, so many miracles for poor people overseas, Tsunami, droughs, poverty, civil wars, narco wars, people desespertly trying to cross the border and coming to the secular united states, where you can start your bussines and learn English, just like me. Pat robbinson is an April fool, all year!!

    No Pat we don’t have fewer miracles because we are educated. We just have sense enough not to break out in song every time a bear shytes in the woods and doesn’t come eat us instead. Look you have hate mongered and pilfered from little old ladies enough. Go somewhere and sit down. And remember, no matter how hard you try or how successful your use of the same fear tactics and hate mongering you used here, 30000 lira/pesos/reals is still about $30 bucks. So don’t let your pace maker skip a beat over the raw numbers. Whats wrong Pat have you already spent the money Rmoney slipped you to back off the Mormorons as a cult? God, please save us from your false prophets.
