As host of the conservative Christian chat show The 700 Club, Pat Robertson has spoken out against what he sees as the evils of modern society. Having done so for decades has earned him a dizzying fortune, as well as a wikipedia page dedicated solely to the controversies he’s sparked, involving faith healing of AIDs patients, referring to Islam as “Christian heresy” and Hinduism as “demonic,” and famously describing feminism as “a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
We now interrupt our regularly scheduled posting for a brief gif break.
And we’re back! So, what does Robertson think about Facebook? Oh, well that’s a real gem in the crown of his lunacy.
A viewer wrote in, asking, “Young parents now regularly post fetal ultrasound photos as their Facebook photo. From a spiritual point of view is there any harm in doing this?” To which Robertson said, “I don’t think there’s any harm in it, but”—wait for it!—“I tell you there are demons and there are evil people in the world and you post a picture like that and some cultist gets hold of it or some coven, and they begin to muttering curses against an unborn child … to me it’s abhorrent, but it isn’t necessarily unbiblical.”
Okay, sure, Pat.
