Pat Robertson: Low-Carb Diets Violate God's Principles - VIDEO


Not only do low-carb diets give you "All kinds of problems where you ache like crazy," they also violate God's principles, according to televangelist Pat Robertson. Also, don't eat Halal food or you fund terrorism!

  1. What. A. Nut.

  2. There are sound medical objections to a low carb diet.

  3. Some people say that The Bible says that we should be vegetarians. Some passage speaks of the fruits and vegetables we are to consume and says, "... they shall be as meat to you".

    Albert Einstein supposedly said that being a vegetarian was clearly our natural order, plants being somewhat easier to catch than animals.

  4. When you think PR isn't able to go lower, he always does... By the way, the Bible I read says, it's not what we eat, which makes us evil, it's what comes out, the words. I guess he reads sth different.

  5. His lack of education is showing yet again. The wealth and benefit of your food comes not from the type but from the production facility or in the case of many carbs, the seed producer.

    Just in case you've been under a rock (such as Mr. Robertson) we aren't growing all plants under natural conditions as the bible would only have had knowledge of. The unnatural can cause terrible side effects. His funding is showing again.

  6. LOL. This man is ready for the home.

  7. @Hey Darlin': He's not under-educated (sadly, he's a graduate of Washington & Lee University, and Yale Law School). He's under-intelligent.

  8. Sometimes these religious types hang it all out there for people to see. Kinda like the emperor's new clothes, dig? The problem is, that people just don't see. Kinda like the girl from Ipanema, dig that too daddy-o?

  9. So we are to take dietary advice from Pat Robertson, God or the Bible.

    Are any of these qualified to give such advice ?

  10. hagatha, there are also valid medical objections to vegetarianism, and quoting the bible as a source of nutritional advice is as valid as using it as a biology textbook. Einstein, while a brilliant physicist, was not a nutritionist or biologist, so why quote his dietary notions? We are omnivores, plain and simple, always have been. Our digestive systems vary vastly from that of vegetarian species. As do our teeth, Science wins over faith, emotion, or belief. Science is, whether you believe differently or not.

  11. OMG does anyone in this guys family get him tested for dementia? No matter what is being discussed he always finds a way to come across as looney tunes.

  12. @VINT True. I didn't mean in general, as it may have sounded. I meant on a specific subject he feels the need to educate others about.

    It's sad a person can be a LOT of both and still attempt to tell others how to live.

  13. The gift that keeps on giving

  14. this would be laughable but for the fact that his thousands of followers will believe what he says and feast themselves on unhealthy food.

    Posted by: alguien | Oct 7, 2013 3:01:55 PM

  15. Does he have a diet book coming out? Could be a bestseller!

  16. Didn't know he was also a doctor

    Posted by: Will | Oct 7, 2013 3:10:06 PM

  17. He's an easy punching bag. He reinforces the site's messages. It's a crazy off.

  18. @Hey Darlin': totally agree. When religious leaders opine in areas outside their actual expertise (if any), the proper response is probably laughter.

  19. Actually, man is designed as a herbivore (mouth size and chewing necessity—not swallowing food whole; tooth configuration, intestinal tract length, sweats like a herbivore instead panting like a carnivore). It's only since the invention of tools that man was able to track and kill and thus eat animals. Of course, according to Poopah Robertson's biblical calculations (6 days and all that), this probably all happened around 1962, right before the Beatles and miniskirts, which can all be connected directly to the garden of Eden and man's expulsion from said garden.

    Religion makes me really tired.

  20. Oh thank Jeebus for this man! Now I can have a large pizza every day, and when I have a heart attack I can think "well, at least I wasn't violating God's Law of Carbohydrates." /sarcasm off

  21. God is a lying S.O.B. - and Jaybus is probably morbidly obese who gets around on a Jazzy...chewing gum and smoking. Yee-Haw!!!

  22. omg! you mean God had time to write about low carb diets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by: Bernie | Oct 7, 2013 4:13:38 PM

  23. Whenever I need holy nutritional guidance, my first thought is "What would Pat Robertson eat?"

    Posted by: Marc | Oct 7, 2013 4:18:04 PM

  24. And I ask once again- tell us Pat-
    what did you do with the income that you gained from hauling back all the diamonds and other gems from Africa after dropping off you fairy tale tracts to the masses?

  25. For once, ol' Mr. Robinson makes sense. Low carb diets are unhealthy hippie nonsense. But then again most of these fad diets are. Somehow we as a society got by on meat, dairy, gluten and carbs. Perhaps you fairies should stop being so sensitive and act like men for once.
