Since I grew up in Virginia Beach, Pat Robertson has been an embarrassment to me as long as I can remember. When I was young, back in the Dark Ages before cable, we had five local stations-- the ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS affiliates, and the Christian Broadcasting Network.When I watched reruns of Gilligan's Island on CBN, they bleeped the word beer. Even as a kid I recognized this was on the wacky side.
Yesterday Pat Robertson said there should be a "vomit" button on Facebook to respond to pictures of gay men kissing. But that's far from the craziest thing he's ever said. Here's a nice list of some of Pat's greatest hits. My favorite? I guess it'd have to be this one:
"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
Maybe it's not quite as wacky as bleeping the word beer, but it's darned close:-).
