Robertson: God Killed Your Friend’s Baby So It Wouldn’t Grow Up to Be Hitler

As far as God’s concerned, He knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease. God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.

— Pat Robertson, on the “700 Club,” explaining to a woman whose friend’s 3-year-old died why God took the baby and why it was a good thing, reported by Mediaite.

— Pat Robertson, quoted by The Atlantic, asserting that gay men in San Francisco use special rings to spread HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

TV preacher Pat Robertson, a towering figure in the anti-gay hate group movement, has said a lot of crazy things about gay people over the years — that God would smite Orlando because Disney allowed gays to host an event there and that gays and agreeing with his colleague, the late Jerry Falwell, that gays, the ACLU and others caused the 9/11 attacks. But his latest anti-gay smear represents a new low — a hateful accusation that makes no sense — so crazy that his own network censored it out after he said it live during the broadcast:

Pat Robertson, Fresh Off the Campaign Trail with Mitt, Advises a Man to Beat His Wife

Keep in mind as you watch Pat Robertson advise a man whose wife insults him that he needs to move to Saudi Arabia so he can “become a Muslim and beat her,” that Mitt campaigned this weekend with Pat at his side. Make no mistake about the “conservative” attitude toward women: we are to submit to male authority and if we don’t, well a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

Nice try by the CBN host to save Pat from saying more, and to laugh off his comments, but we get it. It’s called the Republican War on Women, and it just keeps escalating.

Update: Someone on Facebook reminded us that Vice Pres. Joe Biden was the author of the Violence Against Women Act, and that our choice in November couldn’t be clearer.
