Pat Robertson: Feminists Want To 'Have Some Parade And March Around Topless'

Pat Robertson, the televangelist who once said that feminism is “a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians,” today hailed the effort by some activists to “reclaim” feminism as a conservative movement.

Robertson's “700 Club” program profiled activists promoting what they call “maternal feminism,” which emphasizes preserving traditional family structures and banning abortion. Robertson hailed these activists for showing the world “what true feminism is.”

He said that women “don’t have to go out and have some parade and march around topless and say nasty things like these former feminists.” Feminism, Robertson said, had been distorted by “radicals” who wanted to “tear down the f-ing patriarchy and on and on.”

“‘Let’s be radical and let’s be free’ and a whole generation of college women were probably scarred by the rhetoric of these people,” he said. “But what we found as we’ve gone deeper into it is that some of those who were writing about feminism were actually making stuff up and lying.”

Pat Robertson: Many Transgender People Are Frauds

Yesterday on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said he was “simply appalled” by the negative reaction to North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law, claiming that the law is “perfectly reasonable” and that it was passed because “we don’t want men going into women’s bathrooms, we don’t want predators going out where little girls are, we don’t want voyeurs having free access to the women’s locker rooms during games when they’re changing clothes.”

The televangelist contended – without any basis in fact or reality – that while there are some people who truly are transgender, many people identifying as transgender are frauds.

“People like that are relatively rare,” Robertson said. “So much of this other stuff is put up, it’s put on and it’s just a fraud. And it’s one more opportunity for the left to demonstrate against some aggrievement they claim to have that doesn’t exist. This is a phony, phony, phony cause to get involved in. ‘Well, I’ve got to look after the transgenders.’ This is nonsense.”

Pat Robertson: Islam Is A Dangerous Infection That Must Be Eliminated

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said that countries like Belgium and France must respond with “violence” to the “infection” of Muslim immigrants, telling his co-host Terry Meeuwsen that these countries must fight Islam in the same way that a body fights a deadly disease.

Otherwise, “Europe is doomed. Doomed!” he said, before adding: “And we have a president here in America who refuses to name it, refuses to identify it and refuses to give us what’s needed to kill the infection.”

Robertson: Our bodies are amazingly resilient and they can throw off a small infection, something comes up and the body has mechanisms to deal with it and the body closes in on the invader and kills it and the body stays strong. But there comes a time if the infection is allowed to spread, and it will spread rapidly when the invader overtakes the healthy body, at which point there is sickness and then ultimately death.

No society should allow some alien body to come to its midst that preaches terror, preaches overthrow, preaches violence and preaches another form of government. We shouldn’t have that.

Now, that’s what is being allowed in Belgium and France and other parts of Europe in the name of political correctness. And the so-called socialist liberals think, ‘I want to be open and I want to be welcoming to these people who come in.’ Okay, a few of them, fine, assimilate into the society, learn the language, learn the customs and be Belgians. But these people are not. They’re keeping on with their Islamic customs, Islamic dress, they’re speaking Arabic and they’re in the middle of Belgium and they’re growing and metastasizing and it won’t be long before they overwhelm the healthy body. Here in America and other places, we can only stand so much infection before it overwhelms us.

Meeuwsen: But once you’ve allowed that to occur and roots have gone down into a city or a region, is it too late to change that?

Robertson: Not really, but it’s going to take violence. They’ve got to move in with the police dragnets.

Meeuwsen: Do you think they have the stomach for that?

Robertson: Well, no. That’s the problem. You don’t want to, you know, it seems like you’re violating people’s civil rights, you don’t want to take away their liberty and violate the thing you are, but people have got to stand up and recognize the threat and if they don’t do it the society’s doomed. That’s what’s happening. All of our shows are showing, I mean our reporters are showing that Europe is doomed. Doomed! Because they refuse to acknowledge the existence of a pathogen in their midst, an infection, that has come in, and that’s what radical Islam is, it’s an infection. And we have a president here in America who refuses to name it, refuses to identify it and refuses to give us what’s needed to kill the infection. As a matter of fact, he wants to take more of them and bring them into the country.

Meeuwsen: Crazy.

Robertson: It’s crazy.

Meeuwsen: And in doing so we lose our own rights.

Pat Robertson Stumped On Abortion Punishment: 'What Do You Do To Somebody Who Commits Murder?'

Reacting to Donald Trump’s since-reversed assertion that women who have abortions should be punished if the procedure is outlawed, Pat Robertson seemed hesitant to rebuke the billionaire mogul. If abortion is murder, the televangelist said today, then it only makes sense to reach Trump’s conclusion.

“You know, it’s interesting, what Trump says, it shocks people, but at the same time the old adage was that abortion is illegal, that is was murder, and consequently if it’s illegal and it’s murder then there had to be some penalty attached to it,” he said.

Robertson added that many anti-choice activists now say that the law “should punish the provider who does the abortion, not the woman who is having it, which sounds more reasonable. In any event, if somebody says abortion is murder, then what do you do to somebody who commits murder? It’s a dilemma that people have been wrestling with and I’m certainly not going to get into it. But that does seem a bit draconian, but at the same time we’ve slaughtered close to 50 million unborn babies in America since Roe v. Wade.”

Pat Robertson: Michelle Fields 'Could've Had A Bomb'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson defended Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is facing allegations that he grabbed and bruised former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields at a campaign event. Lewandowski was charged with simple battery yesterday over the incident.

“The female reporter rushed the candidate,” Robertson said. “Where were the Secret Service people who were supposed to defend him? She could’ve had a knife. She could’ve had a gun. She could’ve had a bomb.”

She had a pen.

“Secret Service did nothing so now the aide is being sued,” he lamented.

Robertson’s claim that Fields, a credentialed reporter, rushed Trump conflicts with a police report that found that the presidential candidate was taking questions from the press and signing autographs at the time.

According to the police report, rather than valiantly trying to save Trump from an assailant, Lewandowski, who initially claimed he “never touched” Fields, was just trying to get closer to the candidate:

The video parallels what Fields told me, in that Trump was walking towards the exit of the ballroom, taking questions, and signing autographs. Fields is seen on video, holding her phone up to Trump, appearing to ask him a question. Trump had looked in her direction, and then Lewandowski extended his left arm out, stepping between Trump and another male subject believed to be U.S. Secret Service. After extending his arm out, Lewandowski appeared to reach for Field’s left arm with his left hand, allowing him to get closer to Fields.

Lewandowski then grabbed Fields left arm with his right hand, causing her arm to turn and step back. This motion cleared a path for Lewandowski to walk past Fields, allowing him to “catch up” and get closer to Trump, who was walking during this entire incident.

Pat Robertson: 'Sick At My Stomach' That NFL Backs LGBT Rights

Pat Robertson once again expressed outrage over the NFL’s strong opposition to an anti-LGBT bill in Georgia today, telling “700 Club” viewers that the league’s stance has made him “sick at my stomach.”

Yesterday, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed the bill, which would have created broad protections for businesses that openly discriminate against LGBT people.

“This whole thing is absolutely ludicrous,” Robertson said. “This is the greatest nation on earth. We have degenerated beyond measure. And what are we fighting about? These things about transgender and so forth? I mean, who cares? This kind of thing is just absurd and we’re making a big civil rights thing.”

Robertson was outraged that “the NFL, supposedly a bunch of man-size warriors,” are now saying that they “want homosexuals to be our heroes and we’re going to fight for them” and “won’t go to wherever the law says that Christians have a right to speak out.”

“The whole thing is absolutely absurd and it makes me sick at my stomach,” he said.

While Robertson claims that people no longer have the right to speak out against homosexuality or LGBT rights, anybody in America can still say whatever they want about the matter, as Robertson demonstrates nearly every week on his show.

Pat Robertson: 'These NFL Players Are Not Going To Get Same-Sex Marriage'

Pat Robertson took issue today with the NFL’s opposition to an anti-LGBT bill in Georgia, arguing that the league shouldn’t care about the bill, which would effectively legalize anti-LGBT discrimination, since none of its players are gay.

“These guys are supposed to be tough warriors in the NFL,” Robertson said. “Why are they suddenly going out to boycott a state because of some alleged offense against homosexual marriage? These NFL players are not going to get same-sex marriage, you wouldn’t think. What is going on with those people?”

He lamented that “we are making a protected class of somebody that, you know, for centuries have been on the edges of society, and now suddenly it has become the big deal.”

Georgia’s Republican governor announced this morning that he will veto the legislation.

One of the bill’s supporters, state Sen. Greg Kirk, told Robertson’s news network that religious liberty won’t exist in Georgia unless this bill is signed into law.

He also claimed that “in the other twenty-one countries that have passed same-sex laws, it has squelched the First Amendment rights of many of those citizens.”

Pat Robertson: The Supreme Court Has 'Ripped Up The Fabric Of American Life'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson told Senate Republicans to “hold firm” on their Supreme Court blockade.

“If Republicans cave, they can kiss the Senate goodbye,” he said. (Polls actually show the Supreme Court blockade hurting Republicans’ re-election prospects).

After ranting about how conservatives got “snookered” by the appointment of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the televangelist said that “the Supreme Court has dominated our nation: marriage, homosexuality, schools, you go down the line, prayer and so forth, they’ve come out against, against, against and they’ve ripped up the fabric of American life.”

Pat Robertson Calls For A Trump-Kasich Ticket

After his “dream ticket” of Jeb Bush and John Kasich didn’t pan out, televangelist Pat Robertson now hopes that Donald Trump and Kasich will join forces and lead the GOP to victory.

Robertson, who recently told Trump that he is an inspiration, said that Trump “is sweeping the country” and advised him to tap Kasich as his vice presidential running mate because the Ohio governor “really knows how to make government work.”

“The team would be Trump and Kasich,” he said, while knocking Ted Cruz for having a limited appeal and Marco Rubio for saying “funny things in these debates” and having “a meltdown” while squaring off with Chris Christie.

Pat Robertson: Even Recordings Of My TV Show Can Heal You!

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said that viewers can be healed by his television program even when they aren’t watching it live. During his show, Robertson typically dedicates a segment to calling out different healings or financial rewards that must be claimed by faithful viewers in order to work.

However, one viewer was worried that she wouldn’t be able to claim such healings because she doesn’t watch the show live.

Robertson assured her that viewers who watch recorded episodes of “The 700 Club” can also be healed, taking credit for healing a viewer’s knee ailment even though she watched a recording of the episode a week after it aired.

“And we’ve had things in Africa take place where the spirit of God rebuked demon spirits and drove them out” as a result of reruns of his show, Robertson said.

Pat Robertson: Leave 'The Homosexual Lifestyle' To Find 'Real Love'

Today “The 700 Club” profiled a man named Robert who renounced homosexuality and married a woman, news welcomed by host Pat Robertson.

“Robert chose the homosexual lifestyle because he craved attention from men,” Robertson said.

“We have all these myths about homosexuality and he was just being used by people, they just wanted to take advantage and he didn’t know any better,” he said. “He thought that what they were showing him was love when actually it was one form of lust. When he came free, he wasn’t ‘homosexual,’ he was a person looking for love, he wanted the real thing and he got it, God gave him real love.”

Pat Robertson: 'Insane' To Discuss Transgender Rights While 'Facing Thermonuclear Annihilation'

Pat Robertson reacted angrily today to the Education Department’s finding that transgender youth are protected under federal anti-discrimination law, warning that the transgender rights movement is part of a larger push to undermine America.

“We are facing thermonuclear annihilation and what are we debating in America? What are we debating? Where a little kid goes to the potty. I mean, this is nuts, absolutely nuts. It is crazy,” he said.

“This whole thing is insane,” Robertson continued. “And for the United States of America to put the power of the federal government and all of its money and resources behind this transgender movement, it is just nothing short of insanity. And you ask yourself, ‘When do we get free from this nonsense?’ But it gets worse and worse and worse. This is liberalism run amok.”

The conservative televangelist then linked the issue to women serving in military combat roles, saying that women have lost their “honor” as they are no longer treated as “the weaker sex,” and to the collapse of “marital purity,” which he said will lead to the disintegration of society.

Pat Robertson: Quit Your Job To Avoid Voodoo Doll Key Chains

Today, after blasting Bernie Sanders’ fans as “ignorant sheep,” Pat Robertson fielded questions from “700 Club” viewers, including one from “a 60-year-old widow” who wondered if she should leave her job as a store clerk because it sells “voodoo doll keychains.”

Robertson did indeed urge her to quit: “God can give you another job.” The televangelist warned that the voodoo doll keychains are a stepping stone further into the occult.

“You don’t want to give your heart over to voodoo or magic arts,” he said. “If they’re doing a voodoo doll, the next thing you know they’ll be having little dollies you put pins in and can bring down curses on them.”

Pat Robertson: Bernie Sanders Voters Are 'A Bunch Of Ignorant Sheep'

While criticizing the “so-called millenniums” today, Pat Robertson skewered Bernie Sanders supporters as “a bunch of ignorant sheep” who are “cheering a man who wants to take away all our money.”

The “700 Club” host made the remarks while chatting with Joshua Charles, an author and Tea Party activist who previously co-authored a book with Glenn Beck, about his new WorldNetDaily-published book “Liberty’s Secrets.”

When Robertson said that “there are forces that wish to destroy” the founding fathers’ vision for America, Charles warned that young people want to make a difference but don’t know the truth about our nation’s history.

Pat Robertson: Women Must Raise Kids, Not Become 'Amazon' Soldiers

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson criticized proposals to have women register with the Selective Service, saying that God made women “to be a wife” and they should not “despise their calling.”

“That’s your role,” he said. “Do that. He didn’t make you to wear combat boots, carry an M-16 and shoot down the enemy.”

He continued: “Why can’t women embrace the role of wife and mother, why not? Raising the next generation is a very important function. If all the women are amazons and they’re out with muscles and F-16s fighting, who is going to take care of the kids?”

When co-host Wendy Griffith praised Israel for requiring women to enlist with the armed services, but Robertson said he knows “some stories about that too that I can’t say on television.”

Pat Robertson: Obama Destroying America As We Near The End Times

Televangelist Pat Robertson thinks that the Syrian Civil War indicates that End Times prophecies are being fulfilled, and on today’s edition of “The 700 Club” discussed the prophetic significance of the Iranian-Russian alliance in the war on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Robertson said that Russia and Iran are likely to lead the coalition that will invade Israel in the Last Days (a similar prediction to one put forward by Michele Bachmann), while also worrying about the prospect of a war between North Korea and the U.S.

All of this, he said, is the fault of President Obama for reducing American strength and authority in the world, thus empowering Russia, Iran and ISIS.

“He is dangerous, he is really dangerous,” Robertson said of Obama. “But whether or not he can destroy this country in the next few months that he’s got ahead of him — his people will saddle us with so many regulations. We’re looking at a serious, serious economic collapse with no driver, no country strong enough to take on the burdens of the world unless the United States mans up and does it.”

Robertson reminded viewers that “God Almighty is on the throne” and “His purposes will stand, regardless of the Iranians, regardless of the Sunnis and the Shias, regardless of the Soviets, regardless of who wants to hurt who, God is going to have His way and it will come to pass as the Bible says it will.”

Pat Robertson: Beware Satanic Rock Music That 'Summons Demons'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from a teenage viewer who wanted to know if it is a sin to listen to rock music.

The televangelist said that while people shouldn’t try to completely avoid mainstream music, they should be wary of listening to songs that may contain violent, Satanic lyrics and beats that could summon demonic beings.

“It depends on what rock you’re listening to,” he said. “Some of the stuff is just evil. They used to talk about killing your parents and there were just some other things. There were odes to Satan. You don’t want that stuff coming into your mind. There’s some beat that’s out there that, you know, probably isn’t all that bad, although in one Indian context, they were playing rock music and the person said, ‘Why are you calling on the demons?,’ because that was the kind of music they used to summon demons.”

Pat Robertson: Don't Let Your Child Get 'Wrapped Up' In The Gay 'Lifestyle'

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson gave out more of his patented advice on how parents should treat their gay children, this time telling a parent of a 17-year-old girl who identifies as gay to love her but to make sure she knows that they “don’t accept the lifestyle.”

“It’s a difficult thing,” Robertson said. “Many young people, they think they’re transsexual and they think they’ve got to have a sex-change operation, they’ve got to do this, that, and the other and they don't really know what they’re talking about because they’re too young to know. I have a feeling the same thing — there’s nothing that says somebody can’t be attracted to the opposite sex.”

He added: “Young girls have crushes and they have crushes on their teachers and they have crushes on other girls as well as boys, that’s one of those things that happens but that’ll get differentiated as she gets older, but if she gets wrapped up in that lifestyle, she may never get out of it.”

Pat Robertson's Dismissive Advice On Child Abuse

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer named Jonathan told host Pat Robertson that “my mother sexually assaulted me when I was younger,” and wanted to know whether he should “call the police and have my mother charged, now that I can speak up” or whether he should “turn the other cheek.”

The televangelist advised Jonathan not to call the police, and expressed disbelief that a mother would abuse her son.

“Jonathan, I think the thing to do is to let that thing rest,” he said. “Good grief, your mother assaulted you? It’s hard to believe. It’s so rare, but in any event, she’s your mother, I mean, you’ve got to love her. I pray that she might find the Lord and God will forgive her for that and you should forgive her too. But you’re going to charge her and ask for her to be put in jail now that you’re in your late 20s? Of course not.”

God Tells Pat Robertson That War Is Coming But His TV Network Will Prosper

Pat Robertson welcomed in the new year by spending some alone time with God and, lo and behold, his prophecies for 2016 are already coming true. As “The 700 Club” host reported today, God told him that war is coming to Saudi Arabia and that the kingdom will fall.

He said that the recent controversy surrounding the Saudi government’s execution of a dissident Shiite cleric, which sparked protests throughout the region, has proved the validity of what God told him.

The televangelist continued by saying that God revealed to him that some entity — possibly Iran, Al Qaeda or ISIS — will launch destructive attacks against Saudi Arabia’s oil fields, leading to a dramatic increase in the price of oil and “the kingdom will be brought down,” ushering in further conflict and disorder. “As sure as we’re alive, the oil fields in Saudi Arabia are going to be set on fire,” Robertson said.

However, even as the world plunges into turmoil, Robertson said, God will continue to bless his Christian Broadcasting Network and his Regent University. “This is going to be a year of miracles,” he said, “this is going to be a year of growth for the church, it’s going to be a year of prosperity for CBN and for Regent University and we’re going to see more and more and more of the blessing of God on his people despite what may be chaos in the world.” 

Previously, God revealed to Robertson that Mitt Romney would defeat President Obama in 2012; Israel would bomb Iran by January, 2009; God would punish Orlando for a 1998 gay event at Disney World; a massive terrorist attack would occur in 2007 and the world economy would collapse and Iran would acquire a nuclear device in 2014.
