Here are some of my favorite quotes from Robertson:

You may think he sounds crazy here but there is actually good reason for such belief:
Long story short, it is apparently a "hate crime" to quote the Bible now...
:::: (talking about Planned Parenthood) "It is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism-everything that the Bible condemns."
What is wrong with that quote? Legalizing abortions means people can do whatever immoral thing they want and not have to deal with any consequence. Explain to me how that does NOT teach kids or even adults for that matter that you can now do such things freely.
:::: "You see what happened in 1962. They took prayer out of the schools. The next year the Supreme Court ordered Bible reading taken from the schools. And then progressing, liberals, most of them atheistic educators, have pushed to remove all religion from the lives of children...The people who wrote the "Humanist Manifesto" and their pupils and their disciples are in charge of education in America today."
I don't know anything about the Humanist Manifesto, but the gist of this statement is verifiably true. You can no longer even mention the Bible in schools.
:::: "How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy money changers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?"
This is a valid question...and it makes sense...what is wrong with it?
His other quotes were most likely attacks on opposing groups made out of frusteration. Only in America, where the majority of people are Christian, could attacks like these:
be tolerated whilst a simple quoting of the Bible is considered hate speech and likely to get you a jail sentence! Pat Robertson is not crazy, and even if you are not christian, you still have to admire someone who can get on television and broadcast what he believes despite these events.
