Pat Robertson: Time To Legalize Marijuana; For once I agree with the crazy televangelist

Pat Robertson wants to legalize pot and save our youth

For once I have to agree with Pat Robertson! We are costing ourselves Billions to send our often innocent youth to prison for getting caught with a little pot. After years they come out as hardened criminals. Robertson believes possession of up to or around 2 ounces should be decriminalized as it costs multiple millions, is using valuable resources, and is making criminals out of otherwise good people. Pat Robertson: Time To Legalize Marijuana

I agree with him but have to question his moral authority after the ridiculous things he has said in the past.

Remember when Pat Robertson called the Haiti earthquake a blessing in disguise because Haitian's made a pact with the devil? There certainly is no excuse for Pat Robertson who is supposed to be a "Religious" leader and sadly millions listen to and follow him. Robertson as you may remember the evangelical "so called" Christian who once suggested God was punishing Americans with Hurricane Katrina.

Then the fool said a pact to the devil brought on the devastating earthquake in Haiti. That fool said they made a pact with the devil if they could defeat the French and they did declaring their independence in 1804 and according to him have suffered one disaster after the next as a result. It gets worse

Knowing Pat Robertson has a penchant for being ignorant I wanted to look back at some of the idiocy I found necessary to mention in the past. I remember more than 5 years ago Pat Robertson (aka televangelist), saying we should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.We may or may not agree with that but Robertson is supposed to be a Religious leader.

Later in 2005 Pat Robertson once again proved himself to be a major quack. Thankfully to me he had proven once again the danger of Christian fundamentalism in our society.We then heard from the crackpot "Robertson" that God won't help the town of Dover because they don't want divine intervention taught in their Schools. What happened to the God that loves everyone? What happened to the god that forgives all? These Fundamentalist seem to worship the same God as the Islamists do.

As we have said many times in the past, regardless of what the Religion extreme Religiosity is the most dangerous force in the world. It has been the force behind many of society’s problems and reasons for wars since the beginning of time. Right here in the U.S. under Bush we had developed great problems in the daily fabric of society by the purposeful infusion of hard line religious beliefs into our Political system.

Fundamentalist Christianity played a very boisterous and unhealthy role in our Government. I refuse to believe someone that professes a love for Christ and God can make such a stupid statement as God gave Ariel Sharon his stroke because of his stance in Gaza. I remember in 2006 when Obama had just 2 years in the Senate he said Obama said millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews have traveled similar religious paths, and that is why "we cannot abandon the field of religious discourse. In other words, if we don't reach out to evangelical Christians and other religious Americans and tell them what we stand for, Jerry Falwell's and Pat Robertson's will continue to hold sway. Very scary!

Robertson then said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities would suffer a horrific terrorist attack and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September 2007. Robertson said God also told him that the U.S. only feigns friendship with Israel and that U.S. policies are pushing Israel toward "national suicide." I certainly can believe that now but I think they are doing that themselves.

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted that 2008 will be a year of violence worldwide and a recession in the United States, followed by a major stock-market crash by 2010. Sharing what he believes God has told him about the year ahead is an annual tradition for Robertson. On Wednesday's "700 Club" broadcast, the founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network predicted that evangelism will increase and more people will seek God as the chaos develops. Robertson said, "We will see the presence of angels and we will see an intensification of miracles around the world."

Can there be any doubt that this idiot is a false Christian a danger to society and a real fruit loop? That said, I think most can agree with him for once in that pot should be legalized. His handlers are pulling back from what he said but hopefully you watched the video and read the story at the link and know he said it. Personally I believe the savings would be Billions of dollars.

Will Boner and his army take heed and do something for me and millions of others. Can they see this would stop the flow of blood along our southern border. I know what the answer is.

Now now Jim we shouldn't be treating the mentally ill that way. It always happens when preachers get too much power and wealth. (Falwell, Baker, Swagert)

an average patriot said...

I don't think so Tom but they should. Depends on the tea party and if the Christian right fall behind Robertson. In every other respect he is an idiot though!

an average patriot said...

Demeur it is sick how frigged up they all are and people listen to them. This is the one instance in which I wish they would.

TomCat said...

You know that could not stand for long, as he now says he didn't mean it that way.

an average patriot said...

Hey I was just thinking about you, hope you are well! His people were walking it back but he said it and we all agree though I can't see it happening. We spend Billions and ruin numerous lives over small quantities. Hell it's frigging asinine and simply a right wing ploy!
