Pat Robertson: Liberal Atheists To Blame For Nazism

Post image for Pat Robertson: Liberal Atheists To Blame For Nazism

Maybe dear old Pat Robertson had a bad weekend? The octogenarian televangelist went in an anti-atheism tirade this morning, blaming Nazism and guillotines on liberals, humanists, and atheists.

“You know the liberals, the so called socialists, the progressives, they’ve moved away from God and when you move away from God then you say, ‘we’re humanists,’” Robertson told his “700 Club” audience today. “Then as a result of humanity and rejecting God, you have the orgy of the French Revolution, you have the guillotine cutting off the heads of thousands of people, you have the same thing going on now in Europe, you had it under the Nazis. Why can’t we come back to the fact that God loves people?”

It’s unclear what “God loves people” has to do with liberalism, Nazis, guillotines, or atheism, but Robertson clearly felt comfortable with the Godwin’s Law analogy.

Of course, the question you really have to ask yourself –or, really, Robertson — then is, what would people do without God?

Why is it Pat Robertson believes that we need God to make the correct life choices? Is there a rash of murders, or white-collar crimes, or robberies, or rapes, or any other evidence of lawlessness being committed by atheists?

No.

As a matter of fact, as The New Civil Rights Movement reported this summer, atheists commit less crimes, divorce less, and are better educated than their fellow Christians.

And that comes from a study by an Evangelical Christian pollster.

So, perhaps the question you really have to ask yourself is, why are some people who claim to live by the Bible, by God’s laws, so lawless?

What is wrong with those religious people — not all of them, of course, but the ones who who cannot make proper choices in life?

To be clear: there’s nothing wrong with God, or even religion — but it seems that society’s problems are caused more by those who claim to believe in God, but who are so incapable of actually following His words, than by atheists.

Stop attacking atheists, Pat. They’re not the problem. Time to grow up an learn a few facts.

A) Hitler was a Roman Catholic who signed a pact with the Pope called the Reichskonkordat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichskonkordat. The fascists are and have always been CONSERVATIVES no matter what they called themselves as outlined here in the 14 Points of Fascism: http://www.rense.com/general37/char.htm. After reading the 14 Points of Fascism, read the Republican Party Platform of 2012 and then tell me who are the fascists in the US: http://www.gop.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/201

Really, does anyone follow such illogical nonsense?

Apparently!

Pat, listen to me:

Bad folks all drank milk as youngsters, so MILK is the culprit, the source of all evil!

"To be clear: there’s nothing wrong with God, or even religion…"

except that god doesn't exist and religion is based on nonsense? WHAT DO YOU MEAN "there’s nothing wrong with God, or even religion."?! That's like saying "there's nothing wrong with slavery or genocide." Think!
