Pat Robertson Admits That Religion Is for the Less Educated

The fossil says that God performs miracles on those who are less educated and willing to accept anything they are told by religious people

For agnostics like me, Christmas has come early this year. I have been condemning religion and the religious for years on this blog because of their mental deficiencies and just plan lack of common sense in pretty much every aspect of human life. It is a rare thing that a religious person comes out and admits of their own neurological disorders, but Pat Robertson does not disappoint. He is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

On Monday's episode of The 700 Club, Robertson received an email from a viewer named "Ken", which read:

"Why do amazing miracles (people raised from the dead, blind eyes open, lame people walking) happen with great frequency in places like Africa, and not here in the USA? What can we do to encourage those things to happen here? Is America too far gone for miracles like this?"

Robertson answers his question by admitting that God doesn't waste his time on the over-educated. Robertson replied:

"Those people overseas didn’t go to Ivy League schools. Well, we’re so sophisticated, we think we’ve got everything figured out, we know about evolution, we know about Darwin, we know about all these things that says God isn’t real, we know about all this stuff. And if we’d be in many schools, the more advanced schools, we have been inundated with skepticism and secularism. Overseas they’re simple, humble. You tell them God loves them, and they say ‘ok, he loves me’. You say ‘God will do miracles’ and they say ‘okay, we believe him.’ And that’s what God’s looking for, that’s why they have miracles."

In an unprecedented remark, not only is Robertson admitting that God performs miracles on those who are under-educated and willing to accept and believe anything they are told, but Robertson is also suggesting it is beneficial to be dumbed-down and simple-minded.

In this response, Robertson is also admitting that God does not love everyone, as the Bible claims. Robertson is suggesting that if you are an educated person and believe in science, you will less likely be cured from an incurable disease [by way of a "miracle"] than if you were a babbling idiot who believes everything you're told. Odd, I thought God loved even the educated. Robertson is admitting that is not the case.

The irony in all of this is that Robertson himself is a student of higher education and even received a law degree from Yale Law School in 1955, the very type of Ivy League school he condemned in his response to "Ken". It's not as if we need more evidence to heap upon the mountain of evidence that already exists that Robertson is a massive fraud and hypocrite; it's just fun pointing it out.

The real miracles that should be discussed on Robertson's show is how his heart still continues to beat and how millions of followers around the world continue to be duped into sending this twit money.
