So, the usual set of stupidities then?

Oh the right-wing classics:

Just two days after the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001, Robertson welcomed the Rev. Jerry Falwell onto his show to discuss the cause of the tragedy. Falwell's list of guilty parties included "the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle," not to mention the ACLU and People for the American Way for good measure. Robertson's response to Falwell's venom? "I totally concur."
Falwell, actually apologized the next day...Robertson did not. And while Paula Deen is justly criticized, Pat Robertson just keeps rolling on.
“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this homosexual marriage decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this,” he continued. “Well, the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights it talked about this was an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.”

Yeah, the Bible also talks about slavery and not about suffrage -- I'm sure Pat would happily remedy that other oversight of ours ASAP.

Pat just keeps making money -- well, asking old people for theirs actually.

Crazy Uncle Pat Robberbaron keeps on keepin' on. He doesn't have to pay attention to what comes out of his mouth, because he's been on autopilot for most of his life. "Blah, blah, queers, send money, hurry, blah, blah, magical protein drink, buy some, blah, blah, God's gonna kill America, he hates us `cause abortion, blah blah blah."

I guess to hope he's struck by lightning while on the air is too much to ask for.
