Robertson Warns Obama 'May Have Made A Deal With The Muslim Brotherhood'

Pat Robertson kicked off today’s edition of the 700 Club by interviewing Christian Broadcasting Network contributor Raymond Ibrahim, who spent most of the time rehashing a claim he said he heard from the Egyptian press that “Obama is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“Everyone is convinced this is a conspiracy,” Ibrahim told Robertson, “you can’t help but wonder, of course it is, because why is the Obama administration so adamant about helping this organization?”

At one point in the interview, Ibrahim even suggested that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind the attack on the US compound in Benghazi and alleged that the US is trying to cover up its supposed knowledge of the group’s involvement by pushing for the release of Muslim Brotherhood officials from prison.

Later, Robertson said that it’s “appalling” and “shocking to think Obama may have made a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Robertson, who has previously warned that Obama has a Muslim “inclination” and might be a “crypto-Muslim,” lamented that “we’ve got a president, you wonder about where he is coming from.” He also warned the Obama administration is trying to aid the Muslim Brotherhood’s drive “to establish an Islamic super-state.”

At Iowa Summit, Religious Right Activists Hope to 'Change the Direction of the Wind' Against the 'Gay Agenda'

We have been posting videos and reports from the recent Religious Right gathering in Iowa as they become available – so far we’ve seen Rand Paul warning of the country’s collapse and Ted Cruz repeatedly attacking gay rights.

Today, the 700 Club finally featured a segment with additional footage from the summit. CBN’s David Brody interviewed chief organizer David Lane, who has predicted divine punishment on America in the form of car bombings, along with billionaire brothers Dan and Farris Wilks, the latter of whom told Brody that he is upset about the rise of the “gay agenda.”

Brody also showed footage of right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton praying over Cruz and conservative pastor Laurence White telling activists that they can sway politicians if they “change the direction of the wind.”

Robertson: Exorcism Required for Demon-Infested Haunted House

It was just another day on the 700 Club, as a viewer asked Pat Robertson what to do about his seemingly haunted house: “My house is haunted. There is moaning coming from the walls, lights turn on and off, the TV changes channels on its own, the beds move, stuff floats off tables, mirrors break, and there is sometimes a creepy fog. The ghosts look like people, but have dark blue light around their feet and hands. What do I do?”

Robertson joked that “if it was me I’d burn the house down and move on,” but “assuming you can’t afford that,” he advised the viewer to get an exorcism.

After explaining that he doesn’t believe in ghosts, Robertson said that the house is likely haunted by “demonic forces and you need to get people to come and do an exorcism over that property and command those demons to leave, that’s what you do…. If you can’t do that, move.”

Robertson Fears Christians Will Go to Jail for Saving Gays from Hell, Stopping them from Destroying Country

Following CBN reporter Paul Strand’s heavily slanted report where he claimed that gay rights may be “biggest threat to religious liberty in all of America’s history,” Pat Robertson went on to argue that the gay community is on a mission to “destroy the church if need be, then to destroy the military if need be, then to destroy marriage if need be, then to destroy businesses if they need be.” He said that the gay rights advocates won’t stop until “the way they perform sex acts is acceptable” in society and turn America into Ancient Rome, “where sexual morality had gone out the window.”

Robertson quoted from Romans 1, which the televangelist has cited previously as proof that the Bible condemns homosexuality .

He asked: “If there are 100 million Christians in America, maximum two percent of the population are homosexual and one percent are lesbian, is that minority going to destroy all of the foundations of the morality of the majority?”

Robertson said that Christians may soon be imprisoned over their “loving” anti-gay stance.

“If you see somebody who is not going to go to Heaven and you really love him you want to do what it takes to get him into Heaven, if you don’t care about him you let him go to Hell,” Robertson continued. “We are a people who love and yet now your love is going to put you in jail because the people who are going to Hell feel their lifestyle—think, ‘well, we want to be affirmed.’”

700 Club: Climate Change Helps Environment and Civilization, SUV Owners Treated Like Witches

On the 700 Club today, Pat Robertson followed a segment mocking “climatism” with an interview with Steve Goreham of the climate change denying Heartland Institute. Goreham is not a climate scientist (his degree is in electrical engineering) and the Heartland Institute regularly pushes misinformation about climate change.

Richard Littlemore points out that internal Heartland documents reveal that “Heartland advocates against responsible climate mitigation and then uses that advocacy to raise money from oil companies and ‘other corporations whose interests are threatened by climate policies.’” The group is behind an effort to promote climate change denialism in schools and a billboard campaign likening climate scientists to mass murderers.

Robertson, a climate change denier who has without a hint of irony criticized climate scientists as “nutty” and “fanatics,” unsurprisingly ate up Goreham’s claims that humans play no role in climate change and that higher CO2 levels help the environment.

“Warmer periods have actually been better for civilizations,” Goreham argued. “We have less extreme weather, we have longer growing seasons and we have more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere now, which is actually greening the planet.” “That’s good!” Robertson replied.

Goreham lamented that SUV owners and power company officials may be treated like witches who were burnt at the stake in the Middle Ages: “There were many people in the Middle Ages that were blamed for causing the cold temperatures and the poor crops and they labeled them witches, they burned them. And so today we blame it on our neighbor’s SUV or a power plant, it’s a little bit of a medieval thing.”

“Let’s hope we don’t burn the officials of VEPCO,” Robertson joked, referring to the Virginia Electric and Power Company.

Later, Goreham said that people in New York, San Francisco and Bangladesh should be “rejoicing” about warming as “all the climate models are wrong.”

Robertson: Expect Natural Disasters and Divine Wrath over Middle East Peace Talks

Pat Robertson has issued yet another warning against Middle East peace negotiations, this time predicting natural disasters in the US over the country’s role in mediating talks between the Israelis and Palestinians. The televangelist, who called former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke divine retribution for “dividing God’s land,” told 700 Club viewers today that “from a prophetic stands point, every time the United States gets involved in some kind of a pressure on Israel to split their land there’s some natural disaster that happens here in America.”

“There was a very cogent book written about that, just traced one after the other, of traced disasters that come on America,” Robertson continued. “If the United States pressures Israel to try to give up half of Jerusalem, God himself is going to come against this nation. Watch it.”

Robertson: George Zimmerman Right to Follow Trayvon Martin Because Criminals Wear Hoodies

Pat Robertson yesterday berated the media for portraying Trayvon Martin as a “little boy” instead of a “fully-formed young African American male.” Robertson defended George Zimmerman after co-host Terry Meeuwsen pointed out that a 911 operator told Zimmerman not to follow Martin. “There’s been some crime in this area and the criminals were wearing these hoods so it’s one of those things,” Robertson said.

Robertson Wonders If Obama Is A 'Crypto-Muslim'

On yesterday’s broadcast of the 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again suggested that President Obama is a secret Muslim. Robertson asked CBN terrorism “expert”/sports reporter Erick Stakelbeck, “Do you think Obama is a crypto-Muslim?” Stakelbeck replied that Obama is “revolutionary leftist” who, like the Occupy movement, is working with “hardcore Islamists” to bring down “Judeo-Christian western civilization” and “traditional America.”

Robertson: 'We Are Not Anti-Gay' Since Gays Are Just Confused Straight People

Pat Robertson is disturbed that people, for whatever reason, might believe that he is somehow anti-gay. After all, how could blaming gays for 9/11, warning that gay rights will destroy Americausing anti-gay slurs, linking homosexuality to pedophilia and disease and saying that Facebook should create a ‘vomit’ button specifically for pictures of gay couples possibly make someone seem anti-gay?

Well, following a story on the Exodus International head Alan Chambers’ decision to shut down the ex-gay ministry, Robertson insisted that “we are not anti-gay.”

“I am very pleased that we have many, many, many homosexuals watching this program and many of them are looking for love and acceptance and help,” Robertson said, “and I’m glad to report that we have thousands of these people who are saying, ‘yes we want to follow Jesus, we’re not happy with the lifestyle we’re in and we want to have a better way,’ I think it’s wonderful that that’s happening.”

He claimed that people are gay “because they have forsaken God, it’s not something that is natural and when people reunite with the Lord, the Lord will get their priorities the way it is supposed to be…. You work through it and if you meet the Lord it should be, it can be instant.”

The televangelist has frequently endorsed ex-gay therapy, so Robertson’s criticism of Chambers’ apology came as no surprise.

He argued that many gay people are simply straight but are confused due to child abuse: “A lot of people are into this homosexual thing because they’ve been abused by a parent, abused by a coach, abused by a sibling, abused by a friend, they’re little boys and little girls and they don’t know any better and then they somehow think, ‘well I must be gay,’ they aren’t they are heterosexual and they just need to come out of that.”

Robertson maintained it may be possible the some gay people “maybe got some chromosomal damage that’s different from heterosexuals,” and concluded by calling for another ex-gay ministry to emerge “to help people who want out.”

Robertson: 'Rise Up' Against Obama Like Egyptians Revolted Against Morsi

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson said Americans should “rise up” against President Obama over the “gobbledygook” health care reform law just like Egyptians took to the streets to oppose and ultimately topple Mohamed Morsi.

“You know they revolted in Egypt against the oppressive actions of the Muslim Brotherhood and this example of state socialism is something that Americans should rise up against,” Robertson said, referring to Obamacare. “They snuck that thing by us.”

Robertson: Facebook Should Have 'Vomit' Button for Pictures of Gay Couples

After warning that the land will “vomit” out gays, Pat Robertson said that he vomits at the sight of gay couples. Responding to a viewer who wondered whether it was sinful to ‘Like’ Facebook photos of same-sex couples, Robertson said that Facebook needs a ‘Vomit’ button for such pictures: “You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that? Well that makes me want to throw up. To me I would punch ‘Vomit’ not ‘Like’ but they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”

Robertson Cites Levitical Death Penalty for Gays, Warns the Land Will 'Vomit You Out'

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson reflected on a recent reading of the Old Testament and warned gays and lesbians that the land will “vomit you out.” Robertson said that Leviticus lists homosexuality as an “abomination” on par with incest and bestiality, “and those who do that in the Old Testament were stoned to death.”

He feared that the US is not heeding the Bible’s teaching that “the nations who were doing these things were vomited out of the land and the land vomited them out.”

“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this, well the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights it talked about this was an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.” Robertson continued. “Which is going to take precedence, the Supreme Court of the United States or the holy word of God?”

Of course, Robertson also believes that we should ignore what the Old Testament said about slavery.

Pat Robertson on Justice Kennedy: 'Does He Have Some Clerks Who Happen To Be Gays?'

Pat Robertson is wondering if Justice Anthony Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion on the case striking down a key section of the Defense of Marriage Act, may have been influenced by his sneaky gay clerks. Robertson’s remarks followed a totally impartial 700 Club news segment where Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Paul Strand said that gay rights advocates have “bashed” Christians and the Supreme Court “denigrated” marriage equality opponents.

While speaking to acolyte Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, which Robertson founded, the televangelist said: “let me ask you about Anthony Kennedy, does he have some clerks who happen to be gays?”

Following the wrongheaded talking points of other anti-gay activists, Robertson called into question the sexual orientation of district judge Vaughn Walker who was the first to rule on Prop. 8: “going into California, I understand the district court judge there either was an advocate of homosexual activity, or was a homosexual, or had a wife, some connection.” Sekulow agreed that the judge was biased and said that “there was a real controversy because the judge’s sexual orientation became, unfortunately, part of the case.”

Gohmert & Robertson Push Conspiracy Theory that Homeland Security Is Going To 'Force Something on the American People'

On today’s edition of the 700 Club, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) pushed the discredited conspiracy theory that the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling arms to suppress Americans, asking Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Jennifer Wishon: “Why do you need all this protection? Are you about to force something on the American people you know they’re going to get upset about?”

Host Pat Robertson, who earlier this year alleged that Homeland Security is treating Americans as “the enemy” and preparing to “shoot” and go to war “against us,” blamed the Bush administration for creating the “bureaucratic monstrosity” of the DHS. “This was wrong and we’re beginning to see the price,” Robertson said. “They are stockpiling hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition, they’ve got armored vehicles traveling the roads of America, whoever heard of such nonsense?”

Robertson: US Abortion 'Holocaust' Worse than Nazi Germany, Will Lead to 'Wrath of the Lord'

Televangelist Pat Robertson warned today that America will face divine punishment if it doesn’t recriminalize abortion, telling 700 Club co-host Wendy Griffith today that only anti-choice laws can “avert the wrath of the Lord, but it will come upon this nation unless we do something.” Robertson and Griffith discussed a puff piece about a Pennsylvania program backed by Republican Gov. Tom Corbertt to fund anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers,” which frequently offer misleading and inaccurate information to women.

Robertson hailed Corbett and hoped that his leadership could end the “holocaust” of abortion, which he said is worse than anything done by Adolf Hitler. Griffith called legal abortion “insane” and Robertson warned “we’re going to have to pay a price one of these days for what we’re doing.”

Watch:

Robertson: Wendy, we have fifty-five million babies that have been aborted in this country since Roe v. Wade, fifty-five million, that is a holocaust. You figure, Hitler at the height of his monstrous evil killed six million people, six million; we have in this land of the free and home of the brave, we have killed fifty-five million.

Griffith: And we’re doing it legally, you know, it’s insane.

Robertson: Exactly. The Supreme Court says, hey you have a right to, constitutionally. We’re going to have to pay a price one of these days for what we’re doing. Let’s hope that governors like Corbett and others, the tide will begin to turn and we can avert the wrath of the Lord, but it will come upon this nation unless we do something.

Robertson Bewildered by Women in Combat, Blames Feminists

On today’s 700 Club, Pat Robertson took issue with the military’s plan to allow women to begin training for the Navy SEALS and Army Rangers. After CBN reporter Lee Webb noted the failure of four women to pass the Marine’s training course in Quantico, Va., Robertson commented: “Well, I was trained at Quantico; I didn’t think it was all that demanding but I’m not a lady…. The SEAL team training is ungodly difficult, why would a woman want to go through that?” But Robertson knows who is to blame for women in combat training: feminists.

“The feminists are going to have their way,” Robertson lamented, while co-host Wendy Griffith warned that the sexual attractions between men and women could distract service members from their objective of protecting America.

Pat Robertson, Still Lacking Self-Awareness, Calls Disaster Prophecies 'Nutty' and 'From the Pit of Hell'

Last month, televangelist Pat Robertson admonished viewers to beware false prophets… despite his own terrible track record of predicting events. Today, Robertson received a question from a 700 Club viewer who wondered about people in her church who “speak in tongues and prophesy to people in the congregation about accidents in their future or some great sorrow in their lives” as a result of the “great judgment” of God.

Robertson answered that such works come “from the pit of Hell” and claimed that these people are trying to “dominate other people and so they do it, like, ‘I’ve got a word of God from you.’” He later added that “predictive prophecy about disaster is almost always something from the psychic world, it’s not something from God” and called the prophets “nutty.”

But maybe these self-proclaimed prophets are just taking a cue from Robertson himself. Robertson has made plenty of disaster prophecies, including predicting that a tsunami would hit the Pacific Northwest in 2006 and declaring that God told him that terrorist attacks in 2007 would claim millions of lives, just to name a few.

Robertson Angered by Jets' 'Shameful' Treatment of Tim Tebow

It seems like everybody has an opinion on Tim Tebow being signed by the Patriots, and that includes Pat Robertson. Robertson, who believes that God will use Tebow to restore the “moral compass in our nation,” said on today’s edition of the 700 Club that the Jets’ treatment of the “tremendous” Tebow was “nothing short of shameful.” “I don’t know what it was,” Robertson lamented, “it was just a travesty.”

Robertson also hailed Tebow’s physical fitness: “Man has he got muscles, he’s been working out, he’s got this chest and muscles.”

“Oh well, the Jets ought to get the ‘Goat of the Year Award,’” Robertson concluded.
