In The Wake Of Tragedy, Pat Robertson Unleashes A Raft Of Thoughtless Comments

Americans were horrified by the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas. It’s still unclear what motivated Stephen Paddock to unleash such carnage, and that’s leading some people to engage in speculation.

Some ideas we can easily discount. TV preacher Pat Robertson, for example, has blamed the incident on a lack of respect for President Donald Trump, a thoughtless move that does little more than shift the blame away from the killer.

The Religious Right Is Happy To Judge Everyone – Except President Trump

Earlier this month, I wrote a blog post about the Religious Right’s decision to stick with President Donald J. Trump no matter what he says or does. I noted the hypocrisy of the members of this movement, who are normally so quick to judge everyone else, in backing a man whose moral lapses are glaring and who clearly lacks the “biblical worldview” these folks claim to champion.

Jim Daly Of Focus On The Family Says Only Christian Coaches Can Help Students Build Character

A couple weeks ago, church–state separation scored a huge touchdown when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that a Washington public high school could ask its football coach not to lead students in prayer after games. But some don’t seem to be reacting very well to the court’s decision.

Let’s Look At Trump’s Claim That Christians Have No One To Represent Them

Donald Trump said a lot of strange things while running for president, but among the most curious was this claim: “The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians. Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.”

Public Education Is More Dangerous Than Terrorism, Says CBN Correspondent

Teachers unions and public education are a bigger threat to the United States than terrorists, a correspondent for TV preacher Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) said recently.

Dale Hurd, a CBN reporter, blamed public schools for what he sees as widespread moral decay in the United States.

“[P]ublic education has increasingly eroded public morality, the family, patriotism, and learning,” Hurd wrote in an online column.

Church Of Mammon?: IRS Says Large Televangelist Group Qualifies As A House Of Worship

If you want to start a church, all you need is your own television show. So says the Internal Revenue Service, anyway.

A recent report by National Public Radio (NPR) told the puzzling story of Daystar, a televangelist network based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The network, which is run by Marcus and Joni Lamb, is “dedicated to spreading the Gospel 24 hours a day, seven days a week” to its potential audience of 2 billion worldwide.

Evangelical Churches Targeted In ‘Below The Radar’ Electioneering Scheme

 

Stung by defeats during the 2012 election cycle, Religious Right groups are gearing up for a renewed thrust in 2014.

The American Renewal Project plans to target 12 states prior to the 2014 election, reported David Brody, chief political correspondent for TV preacher Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network.

Brody said that the group “will be organizing pastor policy briefings and voter registration drives across this country in 12 key states during the 2014 election cycle. It’s their latest attempt to restore America to its Judeo-Christian heritage.”

Platform Piety: TV Preacher Pushes Democrats To Add Nod To God

Is God a Republican or a Democrat?

The United States is facing a difficult economy, a high jobless rate, a large budget deficit, potential financial problems with Social Security and Medicare and perilous situations overseas. But this week, instead of focusing exclusively on those concerns, a discussion broke out about the place of God in party platforms.

The Democratic platform draft celebrated the “central role” of faith in American life and endorsed “faith-based” partnerships between government and religion.

Thug Life: TV Preacher Pat Robertson Hangs With A Bad Crowd

Former Liberian President Charles Taylor was found guilty of crimes against humanity yesterday for his involvement in a civil war in neighboring Sierra Leone. I wonder if Taylor’s former business partner Pat Robertson will visit him in jail.

Taylor was convicted by a UN-backed special court on 11 counts of aiding murder, rape, terror and conscription of child soldiers and sex slaves. He supported vicious rebels in Sierra Leone during that country’s 1991-2002 civil war, and in return, received blood diamonds.

Can We Get A Witness?: TV Preacher Should Take The Stand In Liberian Dictator’s Trial

Naomi Campbell and Mia Farrow have told us what they know about former Liberian President Charles Taylor. Shouldn’t televangelist Pat Robertson be forced to do the same?

Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and a top leader of the Religious Right, may have some important information to reveal about the brutal dictator now on trial for war crimes. The two have had enough business dealings to merit some scrutiny.
