|The godly Pat Robertson in all his unhinged glory|
Just when you think he can't say something worse right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson goes on and proves you wrong by a country mile.
This time the wise one wants grieving mothers to know that it's okay if their children die, because God was just taking them before they grew up to be mass murderers.
Don't believe the old bastard is capable of saying something so horrific... Read on.
Last week woman wrote to Robertson on his show "The 700 Club" asked for help in comforting a co-worker who had just lost her 3-year-old. Here is a portion of her letter...
After having his co-host read the letter aloud Robertson suggested that the child's death was all part of God's plan to keep us safe from that child because he might have grown up to be an evil dictator…
"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."
Here is the video of Robertson relaying his horrid belief to devastated grieving mothers everywhere...

OKAY... Here's where I have to call shenanigans on Robertson and burn this bullshit to the ground. To make the leap of faith he proposes one would have to believe that God knows everything. One would have to believe that he suffering baby died a horrible death because God knew it was going to be either Hitler, Stalin, a serial killer or it would have a horrible disease. Now if this were the case then I have only two questions. One, if God took the child for one of those reasons why does he let other children live and go on to become a mass murderer or contract and die of horrible diseases. And two, if he is so omniscient why didn't he just kill Hitler or Stalin in the womb before they went on to become unspeakable monsters who murdered millions of people?
Why this man is still allowed to broadcast this hurtful and ridiculous lunacy over and over and over again is beyond comprehension.
