Ah yes, indeed. Again, we are pummeled with the mob’s madness, this time in the guise of a ‘preacher’ (whom nobody should listen to anyways). More ignorant lies flow out of a shaman’s mouth, this time it’s everybody’s favorite crazy assclown, Pat Robertson.
First, get a load of this:
US televangelist Pat Robertson has claimed "demons are cursing babies through ultrasounds" in his latest controversial outburst.
Speaking on CBN, in response to somebody asking about posting ultrasound pictures to Facebook he said: "‘I don’t think there’s any harm in it, but I tell you there are demons and there are evil people in the world and you post a picture like that and some cultist gets hold of it or some coven, and they begin to muttering curses against an unborn child.’
Mr Robertson, has a history of controversial statements.
He has previously said gay people are "terrorists" and that homosexuals will die out because they can't reproduce.
Curses? Demons? Get a little more up to date, Slobertson. Try replicating either item in a lab environment (which of course, no one can) before you go spouting off about some voodoo bullshit. This isn’t Middle Earth, and there’s no such thing as either wizards OR the ability to conjure something out of thin air by pronouncing it so. These Christians definitely live in a comic-book world.
And then there’s this latest bit of codswallop:
Conservative televangelist Pat Robertson slammed a Washington state judge's ruling that a florist's refusal to provide flowers for a gay couple's wedding had violated local anti-discrimination laws.
Robertson, who has made no secret of his opposition to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the past, condemned the decision as "just outrageous" and "crazy" in an installment of "The 700 Club" this week, according to Right Wing Watch.
He asked, “To tell a florist that she’s got to provide flowers for a particular kind of wedding? What if somebody wanted to marry his dog? She’s got to have flowers for that?"
Robertson then went on to note, "What if there’s a polygamous situation where a guy has five wives and he wants to have five ceremonies and she’s going to be forced by the law to provide them flowers?"
Bakeries, florist shops and other wedding-related venues have become an unlikely battleground for marriage equality and other LGBT-related issues in recent years.
On Feb. 2, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled that Sweet Cakes by Melissa owners Aaron and Melissa Klein had similarly violated their state's anti-discrimination laws when they turned away a lesbian couple who had sought a cake for their wedding in 2013.
On the flip side, Marjorie Silva, who owns Denver's Azucar Bakery, is now reportedly facing a religious discrimination complaint after she refused to bake a cake decorated with phrases like "God hates gays" written in icing.
Jeez, this windbag is a major turd. Animal weddings are strictly off limits in most countries (but surprisingly, there’s more of this going around than I’d originally thought, mostly in India), but this is what’s commonly known among the intelligentsia as a category error – a marriage between two sentient adults is not the same thing as some of these lonely people ‘marrying’ a pet. And polygamy is illegal, so that’s also a broken analogy.
Such idiocy is always incendiary for atheists. For one, the somber pronouncement of something so monumentally stupid, that flies in the face of general knowledge – these numbbulbs shouldn’t even be on TV, let alone influence thousands (if not hundreds of thousands). For two, as if isn’t bad enough that their entire bankrupt epistemology is composed of contradictory, a-historical trash, they pre-suppose everything and vomit it out on anyone within range.
Be that as it may, it’s high time we should picket these bozos, and start shouting the idiocy down.
Till the next post, then.
