Whoever thought evangelical fundamentalist Pat Robinson would be quoting LBJ and reprimanding the GOP candidates for being too extreme?
Now, along with Karl Rove’s much publicized criticisms, the once most extreme elements of the GOP fear the carnival of candidates that insult our collective intelligence. But don’t worry, Robertson still holds the record as one of the most bigoted, ethnocentric Christian-conservatives in the country. Lest we forget some of these Robertsonisms:
- “I want to say it again, and again, and again: Islam is not a religion, it’s a political system meant on — bent on world domination, not a religion. It masquerades as a religion, but the religion covers a worldwide attempt to exercise power and to subjugate the world into their way of thinking.”
- “There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.”
- “Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians.”
- [on Haiti] “It may have been a blessing in disguise…the devil said, okay it’s a deal. Ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other.”
