Now here's some heavy thinkin'

Sometimes I think that I'm dreaming this stuff up, but then I find out that, nope, it's true. People are as stupid as this and are still allowed to breathe. Pat Robertson has declared that Hurricane Katrina is Ellen Degeneris' fault because God is angry that Ellen has been chosen to host the Emmy awards. Doesn't that make awesome sense? But there's more. It's also Ellen's fault that 9/11 happened, because that was the first time Ellen was to host the Emmys. This is one of those pronouncements that you just have to ask, "Does anyone actually buy this shit?" This is my favorite part of the article:

"Robertson added that other tragedies of the past several years can be linked to Degeneres’ growing national prominence. September, 2003, for example, is both the month that her talk show debuted and when insurgents first gained a foothold in Iraq following the successful March invasion. “Now we know why things took a turn for the worse,” he explained.

In order to avoid further tragedy, Robertson called not only for the Television Academy to find a new heterosexual host, but to bar all homosexuals and bisexuals from taking part in the ceremony.

He said employees at the Christian Broadcasting Network had put together a list of 283 nominees, presenters, and invited guests at the Emmys known to be of sexually deviant persuasions.

“God already allows one awards show to promote the homosexual agenda,” Robertson declared. “But clearly He will not tolerate such sinful behavior to spread beyond the Tonys.”"

I swear it, someone has to put this guy out of his misery.

I am actually laughing out loud here. I just can't fathom that someone can really think those things. I just read it outloud to my husband and he thought I was reading some crackpot blog writer. He couldn't believe a "respected" public figure could have so much shit for brains.

Margalit, I am honestly, truly believing that this man has a serious mental illness. I'm not being flippant or funny---his words and actions are not those of a person in control of their faculties. Even if he really believes the things he's saying (which he obviously does), a SANE person wanting to effect policy would have more sense than to shoot off such insanity at the mouth.

I would not at ALL be surprised, at his age, if this is the beginning of some form of dementia or other mental illness.

And hey, if God specifically "allows" the Tonys, and doesn't rain fire and brimstone down on this celebration of sexual deviance (whatEVER), wouldn't that indicate that this is, perhaps, not one of God's pressing concerns? Just sayin'.

Whatever Robertson's problem is (and I think he has PLENTY of problems) someone needs to shut him up. I don't know if he still has family that wants to admit to being related to him. But if he does, they need to get some control over him. Advocating the overthow of a foreign government by assasination is pretty out there, but blaming a natural disaster on a Lesbian woman just because she's gay? That's really beyond the pale.

But I have to say, he's giving me plenty of blog fodder. :-)

Me too, this is the funniest thing I've read in ages - and also the sickest. What a nut! How did you *find* this??

I read a bunch of political blogs and this was on one of them, and then it was substantiated someplace reputable. I think it might have been either Yahoo or Google News or something. I keep my eye out for Pat Robertson stories because, as Belinda says, he's either seriously insane or has alzheimers. But he IS amusing.
