Creaking Sound Provides Perfect Metaphor for Pat Robertson's Outdated Views on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Robertson

Creaking forward in his chair (really, listen to the clip), Pat Robertson shook his head at a Christian Broadcast Network report on the marriage of two women which took place over the weekend at West Point.

"What have they done to our cherished institution?" lamented Robertson, adding that General Douglas MacArthur, Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee would each be “rolling over in his grave” over the wedding.

  1. Pat Robertson and his fossilized ilk think that before about 1968, there just weren't any gay people.

  2. Robert E. Lee? Really? I know he was a West Point graduate, but you're holding him up as a shining start of the best of US Military traditions? Leading an armed revolt that killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow citizens? Go team?

  3. That creaking you here is most likely Roberts' outdated animatronic servo mechanism. You didn't think he was real did you?

  4. Pat's infatuation with graves is quite appropriate. I'm counting the minutes until he meets his.

  5. I don't think Grant would have had a problem with it... or Roosevelt for that matter...

    What Pat thinks constitutes reality and what reality really is in 2012 are very different... we have to get microphones away from the dinosaurs (on both sides of the aisle FRANKLY)

  8. How in the hell does Pat Roberson know that some or all of the people he mentioned that would be "rolling over in their grave(s)" wouldn’t support equality! Old fool!

    Just die already!

  10. I had to wiki Pat Robertson to find out why he's relevant. Another person I would never even know existed if I didn't read this blog.

    Far as I can tell his biggest claim to fame was a failed republican presidential NOMINEE campaign 24 years ago.

    Just some miserable old man projecting his terror of the world changing around him.

  13. Sure. Say people would agree with you, but make sure that they are dead so that we can't just ask them.

    I wonder how Robertson feels about these Grant quotes:

    "Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church, and the private school, supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate."
    — Ulysses S. Grant

    and this:

    "It is preposterous to suppose that the people of one generation can lay down the best and only rules of government for all who are to come after them, and under unforeseen contingencies."
    — Ulysses S. Grant

    Or, put another way, we can't live our lives today according to the rules and opinions of the dead.

  15. His show is called the "700 Club" because the viewer's [flat-] worldview has to be that old for one to bear it.

  16. Only the good die young... never was this truer than in the case of Robertson.

  17. Can't wait for Pat Robertson to be rolling around in his grave. And Douglas Macarthur was an egostical imperialistic fool.

  18. I wonder what motivates Pat Robertson's dislike of gay folks. It clearly isn't the bible. Just recently Pat excused the adultery of Gen Patreus with he is just being a guy type response. When his treasured book; the "holy" bible calls for the death penalty for such "sinful" deeds. And shockingly, he just recently denied the truth of the biblical creation story.

  19. @Anastasia:

    700 is the number of Americans who voted for Robertson in his 1988 presidential run.

    Of those 700, about 680 are currently rolling in their graves. True story. With all that grave rolling, it's really only by the grace of G-d that we don't have more of that global warming the kids keep talking about these days.

  21. Pat Robertson? Wasn't he the announcer on that cable tv movie channel The Crypt? You know, the guy who sits up in the coffin. No? Really?

  22. @David in NYC: If you had to wiki Pat Robertson to find out why he's relevant, that says more about you than him. As the host of the odious 700 Club, Pat Robertson is a well-known figure in Christianity today, I'm not sure how you can be unaware of his effect on politics unless you haven't been paying attention. Which is fine, but don't be proud of it as though your ignorance proves Robertson's irrelevance.

    That said, Robertson is a homophobic ass, and water is wet.

  23. He probably went to grammar school with those generals, that's why he feels he can speak for them. And as for Jesus he'd be rolling around in his grave too if he hadn't gotten out on Easter.

    SNAP!

  25. @ZELL: I agree on the water is wet thing. Why does this blog repost every single odious, out-of-touch, disgusting word that freaks like Robertson utter. It seriously gives them ONE MORE platform toward continued relevance. I would not waste ONE SECOND listening to something he says or any of them.
