Pat Robertson Loves Thinking About Hollywood’s Gay Casting Couches

Is it wrong to have a soft spot for senile old Pat Robertson? Sure, he’s evil incarnate, filling  your born-again senior relatives with crazypants lies about everything that frightens them. But it must be conceded that his bafflement, his doddering geriatric world view, his mystified-by-modern-times attitude, is hands-down hilarious. It’s like when your grandfather goes off on a rant about “race mixing” and “women’s libbers.” You just smile and nod and help him find his bag of Werther’s Originals.

Pat’s latest confusion, on display in this 700 Club interview with right-wing author Ben Shapiro to promote Shapiro’s book Primetime Progaganda, stems from his belief that Hollywood is involved in a conspiracy to brainwash America into becoming pro-gay and forcing straight actors to play homosexual roles in order to further those ends. Sure, he forgets the part about those actors being paid handsomely to play whatever role they’re lucky enough to get. And about guys like Rock Hudson. But he means well. Okay, that’s not true. He doesn’t. Let’s just say he means it.

Best strung-together-words exiting Pat’s mouth in the above clip: “…inserting gays one after the other…”

      Pat Robertson thinks what Fred Phelps vocalizes. I think many Christians are just like Fred Phelps in their heart.

      @flick222: Yep. I’ve said the same for years.

      Most Christians share the ideas of the WBC, they just don’t share the courage of their convictions.

      It’s more convenient to profess your bigotry in the privacy of the voting booth rather than going to the trouble and expense of professing your bigotry from the sidewalks.

      Ben Shapiro reminds me of Steve Newlin on True Blood.

      Lets not forget that his sidekick Jerry Falwell died of a “weak heart”. Go figure.

      That allegedly-hetero Ben Shapiro seems to have just the right combination of effeminate facial tics, gay obsession and overall closet case to be heading into a future of “taking a wide stance” in men’s room stalls any chance he gets. He wraps his gay hate in more sophisticated approach, but the underlying hatred and obsession of The Gays is unmistakable.

      This kid is a 25-year old version of where Ralph Reed is now.

      Moving on.
