The 700 Club Scandal

Here is the article I just read:

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...142935112.html

The 700 Club seems to have finally crossed the line. Pat Robertson should be ashamed of himself. If this is what the 700 Club calls its spokesman, then it is time for them to get off the air.

Callous disregard for others. Perhaps he needs to be enshrined in the the Tammy Fay Baker museum for the mentally ill.

just a thought.

sad, so sad.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

This guy has been a bit nuts for a long time. And I say this as someone who is religious myself and certainly not anti-religious. But a nut is a nut. What else is there to say.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

This is mild compared to what he usually spews. If it had been said by any other sports fan would it even have raised an eyebrow?

What in heaven's name is a "religious leader" doing opining about something as "earthy" as pro football?

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

I don't see the big deal about it. I certainly have no love for Pat Robertson but what he is saying is true. Manning has a history of injury and with that is likely to be reinjured. Then the team will be left hanging because if the decisions they made. He did not say anything about wanting or wishing him to get hurt at all. Or that it's gods revenge Coming or whatever. Sure dude is out there but this is so pale compared to the things he has said in the past. Or is it just that he dare talk about a football player who some people seem to worship. Where is the outrage about all the real offensive stuff he has spewed?

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

This is ludicrous. I've been creeped out by the 700 Club ever since I first tuned in and they were advocating killing Wiccans and new age pagans. I am one. They were literally calling for people to murder me, and this wasn't a scandal? But now because he's got some cockamamie opinion on a football player, that's a scandal? Good grief.

The show goes way out of bounds every single episode, it spews nothing but hate and religious bigotry, but now because it's something to do with football it's out of bounds. Arrgh.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

Robertson also blamed 911 on NY decadence, Katrina on New Orleans' immorality and Haiti's earthquake on voodoo and catholicism.
If I ever get to Heaven and I bump into Pat Robertson I going to have to have a long talk with God about his admissions policy.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

Hatred and intolerance, followed by a zealously fervent 'prayer' -- every episode, for years, and years, and years. Yet, somehow, this psycho has been allowed to continue.

I've always considered him to be one of the most potentially dangerous creatures on this planet.

Nothing he says or does could shock or surprise me, at this point. I would love to know the truth of how he's been allowed to continue, though.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

Actually... I used the word "scandal" in a sarcastic way, but sarcasm is hard to convey on line.

None of these comments surprised me, they just reaffirmed what I had always believed- TV stations will show anything if they can make a buck- how sad.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

I remember the small 700 Club of the late sixties and early seventies which my mom liked to watch for their music. That was before they become politicized (or wealthy). I'm not religious but I do remember enjoying the bible stories when I was small, it's a shame, that somewhere along the road, they lost their way.
Boomer, I love that sign.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

Great sign!

I also remember the original 700 Club was a kindler, gentler place- as a child my aunt would watch in the mornings before the Price Is Right came on, then she would be glued to the CBS soaps all afternoon.

Re: The 700 Club Scandal

I'm a Christian and I'm a football fan. I think Denver made the right choice as a football team to try to get Manning. He is a better football player. I hope he doesn't get injured. It is silly for Robertson to say that "it would serve them right" if Manning did get injured.
