Pat Robertson Says Something Totally Reasonable [Daily News Brief]
Virginia Beach, VA – Tuesday
By Joshua Mauldin
While answering a viewer’s question Monday afternoon, Pat Robertson, the controversial televangelist and host of The 700 Club said something totally reasonable.
“I’m a little surprised,” said Amanda Clix, the viewer Robertson responded to. “I figured God was punishing me for having a gay son or skipping the abortion clinic protest to see Iron Man 3, but instead Pat just reinforced a basic cause and effect I hadn’t thought of.”
Not once during the broadcast did Robertson appeal to malevolent, invisible forces to explain hardship or blame a victim with old fashioned, condescending misogyny.
He even went so far as to refrain from holding the Obama administration complicit by connecting the usual metaphysical dots.
Though this may come as welcome news for decent, rational human beings, with tornadoes raging in the mid-west, the sigh of relief could be short lived.
