Pat Robertson Cites Charles Manson’s Grandson As A Role Model For Gays

pat-robertson-healthyCan Pat Robertson ever say something that isn’t at once hilarious and offensive? Apparently not. In the latest instance, the televangelist decided that best way to reach out to gay people was to compare them to the grandson of mass murderer Charles Manson.

Robertson said that Charles Manson III’s “ties to the Manson family name haunted him, and he swore to break the cycle of drugs and violence.” Manson, who goes by the name Jason Freeman, is a mixed martial arts fighter who became a born-again Christian while serving time in jail. He has been feted by right-wing Christians who are always hungry for lurid stories that end with salvation.

In one of those leaps of logic that can not be explained without the aid of quantum physics, Robertson suddenly shifted to talk about how Manson’s example should encourage sinners, especially you.

“God knows your sin. Some of you have been involved in homosexuality, some of you have had an abortion, some of you have actually committed murder, you have lied, you have been disobedient to your parents, you have stolen money from your business, and God says if you repent and come to me I’ll wash the slate clean, you can get rid of it all.”

Good to know that being gay is a sin on the same scale as murder. We can’t wait to see what else Pat comes up with in his never-ending quest to ensure he never loses his crown as Emperor of Nonsense.

    The problem is that this website keeps posting stuff about Pat Robertson, just ignore him, he is an old crow who no one cares for these days. Just let him go, soon he will be in a coffin therefore in heaven talking to God and maybe Adam and Eve or maybe Adam and steve

  • Caleb in SC

    I have to agree. Pat Robertson only has as much power to affect us as we allow him to have. His days are numbered and, while I would never wish death on anyone, I’d read this particular obituary with great pleasure!

  • Cam

    I say let him live a long long time. Everything he says something stupid it reminds people who crazy the right wing actually is. They didn’t a good job of hiding for a while.

  • blondeboyz

    He has first hand knowledge of “you have stolen money from your business”. Remember the diamond mines in Africa that were in your name and not 700 Club but you still used their airplanes to shuttle drilling equipment? That is until the disgruntled 700 Club pilot went public.
    You know, with all the crap you say and do, you must “wipe the slate clean” on a DAILY basis! Ah, all is forgiven with your fake god. You are like the crazy uncle that has to be invited to the holiday dinner only because you’re family but you sit at the table gumming your food and rambling on about stupid crazy shit. Everyone just looks at you and smile and nod.

    I personally don’t believe any of the religious nonsense of heaven and hell, but for Patty R. I hope it’s true. He’s probably not headed where he thinks he is.

  • Respect4all

    Less Pat Robertson, more Tom Daley. He’s cuter and smarter.

  • tada-no

    His quote is the biggest run-on sentence I’ve read in a while.

  • DarSco

    It’s funny when you first read his stupid comments but then you realize this old guy has dementia and the people who are directing, producing advising this old a-hole should be ashamed! They probably enjoy watching this train wreck! He just needs his meds lol

    Homophobia, is mental disorder like Christianity.

    This old fool is never gonna die. God won’t take him and the Devil doesn’t want the competition.

  • BigWoody

    I am pleased to say that I will be around when Marion ‘Pat’ Robertson as well as Fred Phelps die. Their corpses will fester and decompose in coffins for there is no heaven and they have no souls.

  • mcflyer54

    @DarSco: actually they’re only propping him up in order to keep the donations coming in and their paychecks arriving.

  • TheNewEnergyDude

    @Caleb in SC: I don’t care if people think we are bad people for thinking it, Caleb – I will enjoy reading his obit as well. I really look forward to reading “Rev” Phelps’ as well, and honestly, will probably smile with glee when that hateful pond scum goes (god forgive me for saying that, but it’s true).

    I guess we are blessed in Australia our christian nutters only ask that it rain on Mardi Gras, and guess what it has never happened. So this Saturday all the GLBT people will have a hoot.

  • Respect4all

    @regina4aregina2037: Has it ever rained in Australia?
