Pat Robertson on Muslims, Denmark, and Cartoons
Robertson has blasted the religion of Islam during a 1995 taping of The 700 Club, he called the religion a "Christian heresy". (In fact it is.) On September 19, 2002 episode of FOX News Channel's Hannity and Colmes, Robertson claimed that the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, was "an absolute wild-eyed fanatic...a robber and a brigand." (This is historical fact.) On the July 14, 2005 broadcast of the 700 Club, he claimed that "Islam, at its core, teaches violence."
On the March 13, 2006 broadcast of The 700 Club Robertson stated that Muslims want global domination and that the outpouring of rage elicited by cartoon drawings of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad " just shows the kind of people we're dealing with. These people are crazed fanatics, and I want to say it now:
I believe it's motivated by demonic power. It is Satanic and it's time we recognize what we're dealing with." He finished by stating "by the way, Islam is not a religion of peace." This has been proven by endless incidents of Muslim terrorism against almost everyone.
But so-called Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, called Robertson's new comments "grossly irresponsible". He went on to say, "At a time when inter-religious tensions around the world are at an all-time high, Robertson seems determined to throw gasoline on the fire." To quote:
ROBERTSON: Imagine one cartoon, one cartoon showing Mohammad with a turban with a missile out of it. I mean, we have stuff like that, that is vastly worse against our politicians all the time. It's part of free expression. The fact that this elicited this incredible outpouring of rage just shows the kind of people we're dealing with. These people are crazed fanatics, and I want to say it now:
I believe it's motivated by demonic power; it is satanic; and it's time we recognize what we are dealing with. But, political correctness will not face one religious ideology with the strength of another because they don't have the strength of another.
And, so, they're caving in before this vicious assault, and the goal of Islam, ladies and gentlemen, whether you like it or not, is world domination. These people are saying it over there in Europe -- world domination. "We're going to take over Europe.
We're going to take over England. We're going to take over Denmark. We're going to take over France." That's their goal! And, why don't we wake up to the fact of who we're dealing with? And, by the way, Islam is not a religion of peace.
