Pat Robertson: 'Miserable Atheists' Trying to Steal Christmas - VIDEO


The war on Christmas has returned, Pat Robertson reminds us.

"Atheists don’t like our happiness, they don’t want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable...They’re miserable so they want you to be miserable.”

  1. So if I understand this analogy correctly, that make him Cindy Loo Who, right?

    The Fox News "War On Christmas" schtick was a nadir of journalism. Ok, because people in stores don't say YOUR preferred holiday greeting, you are under attack, right?

  2. Yet how many Christians you hear complain about atheists ruining St. Valentine's Day? Typical Christian behavior to pick and choose fights.

  3. I like Christmas for the following reasons {in the following order}: 1)Spending it with my boyfriend and our family...and that's it. The food is good, the company is good, the mood is good. That is a merry Christmas for me.

  4. It's funny that he feels such negativity around Christmas, because I was starting to look forward to it. Not stealing anything over here buddy.

  5. So nice to know that, now that Robertson is as old as a dinosaur, he still doesn't know a damned thing. History, particularly religious history, utterly escapes him. Then again, he's still one of the biggest damned liars and hypocrites on the planet so what would it matter.
    What does it matter to the troglodyte that every single "Christian" holiday has it's roots in a far older Pagan past. Obviously it doesn't. Nor does it matter that their one claim to fame - the resurrection of Christ - is predated by thousands of years by similar resurrection stories from Egypt, Babylon, India, the Norse, the Mayan... Blah, ptoey! Pagan Goddess that I am, I just can't work up any sympathy for the old fart-blossom. When is the nurse coming to collect his dessicated ass, anyway?

  6. Is there really anyone that that makes sense to?

  7. "Atheists don’t like our happiness, they don’t want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable...They’re miserable so they want you to be miserable.”

    This made me laugh out loud. I am an atheist.

  8. Oh shut up you old windbag. You christians stole 'Christmas' from the pagans! Of course facts and history are irreverent to idiots like you and your lemmings!

  9. I think the irony is that a lot of evangelicals (and this is not widely known, but there are typically a few articles every year about it) are opposed to the "secularization" and "commercial exploitation" of what should be to them a rather serious religious holiday. For them, it means no decorating or trees, only modest gifts and lots of prayer for the coming year. What fun.

  10. It's pretty clear that Pat Robertson is getting (or has gotten) age-related dementia. Just look at some of the statements he's made about sex and relationships in the last year.

    It's OK for a man to divorce his wife because she has Alzheimers and he wants nookie.

    Oral sex is only a sin if YOU think it's a sin. (Oral sex is fine of course, but since when did Pat Robertson promote the idea that the Bible wasn't the ultimate authority, that what YOU think [as opposed to what HE thinks] matters? His previous position was that non-procreative sex makes the baby Jesus cry.)

    He defended Petraeus because "she's a good looking woman" and he's "a lonely man." Again, a complete reversal of his previous moral absolutism.

    I won't be at all surprised if Robertson has a total "Where am I?!" meltdown on air. In fact I look forward to it.

  11. Pat do you not realise your earlobes are attaching themselves to the sides of your face?!?

  12. Something about this reminded me of The Nightmare Before Christmas. :D

  13. "You're a mean one, Mr Atheist. You really are a heel! You're as cuddly as a cactus. You're as charming as an eel. Mr AaaatheeIST!"

  14. There must be something wrong with the video. All I could hear was "WAH WAH WAH, HERP DE DERP DE DIDDLY DERP."

  15. @Caliban: did he really defend Patreus and say that? That's funny since his ilk are all about the "sanctity" of marriage. I guess it's OK to screw around and destroy a family as long as you are straight. But God forbid two gay people want to get married! No way! That will ruin marriage.

  16. Great article!

  17. OH! GOOD, I can go to sleep Christmas Eve to await the visit by Santa knowing that good old Pat Robertson has made his annual tirade against every happy person on earth that does not put money in his collection plate on December 25.

  18. @Betty: TR on 14 November 2012.

    A bit of history about some of the Founding Fathers. The Puritans, who came here for religious freedom for themselves only, used to have troops visit homes on 25 December to insure that no one was celebrating Christmas. Three cheers for the Massachusetts Bay colony!

  19. What a sick (Mentally) despicable old man. At his age, he should be worried about where his Sole(or is it Soil)is going to end up, and start asking forgiveness from all of the people he has harmed during his lifetime.
