FOR THE DEFENSE

Pat Robertson Thinks “God Almighty Is A Hater” If Mozilla’s Ex-CEO Is Wrong

pat-robertson-healthyNever one to fear invoking God in the most inappropriate way possible, televangelist Pat Robertson has waded into the controversy about Brendan Eich, who resigned as CEO of Mozilla after it was revealed he supported the antigay Proposition 8 initiative. Robertson, whose knowledge of technology is probably derived from the Jetsons, not only think Eich was wronged but that God Himself would be classified as a homophobe by the same standards.

At the beginning of his rant, Robertson suggests that Eich made the donation to get rid of an irritating volunteer seeking money. “”Somebody came around and said, ‘Will you contribute?’ And he said, ‘Here’s a grand, get off my back.’ I mean, that’s probably all that it amounted to.”

Of course, most people don’t throw $1,000 at political campaigns to get someone to shut up. In fact, most people don’t have $1,000 to throw at political campaigns.

“He’s being forced out by gay activists, who said that was hate speech to say that the union between a man and a woman is marriage — that’s hate speech,” Robertson continued. “Well then, the Bible then is full of hate. If that the way it is, then God almighty is a hater. If that’s the way they want to define it. And I, of course, don’t agree.”

Robertson has a solution to the problem: hide donor lists. Or at least make sure the IRS doesn’t make non-profit groups disclose who is funding them. Because nothing proves your willingness to stand up for principle more than doing it anonymously.

    Poor Pat has gotten to the point where he should be put away, as in istitutionalized. Please, let there be someone who is saving all the anti-gay nonsense coming from the likes of him, Beck, Palin, Bachmann, Buchanan, etc., and compile it in a book “H8ers Say the Craziest Sh*t”.

    @DickieJohnson: That’s a great idea!

    Wow! That is some serious 2nd Commandment breaking right there. I hope a lot of people who agree with his usual assery let that sink in. He’s basically is admitting if God himself were to come to Earth and proclaim thatgays are His children just like everyone else so knock it off with all the anti-gay crap, he would have a huge problem with that. The number one rule of any religion is you don’t dare question your God. He just exposed himself to be huge false phophet. He just admitted his hatred of gays is stronger than his faith in God. Wow.

    My only question is: when is he going to join Fred in hell?

    Patty Robertson: The gift that keeps on giving. His idiocy has probably done more for gaydom than any of the other demented oldsters that follow the cult of jesus.

    Patty, are you still alive? You know, they say “good people die young”, you fossil.

    Second, “Well then, the Bible then is full of hate. If that the way it is, then God almighty is a hater. If that’s the way they want to define it. And I, of course, don’t agree.”
    READ your damn book and your answer would be YES! Your fake god commanded the armies to kill their enemies and people of other faiths. Even the women and children. What loving god commands you to murder innocent children? Only your fake god and fake religion! STFU and go croak already. Nobody will miss you.

    @blondeboyz: “Well then, the Bible then is full of hate.” My jaw hit the floor for a second… I thought, “Wow, did the world’s oldest living goblin just have a shining moment of lucidity?!”
    “And I, of course, don’t agree.” Bless his heart – he came SO CLOSE to having an intelligent thought…
