Pat "I'm Officially Insane" Robertson Tells A Grieving Mother the Death of Her 3-Year-Old Baby Could Be "A Good Thing"
Because the baby "could have grown up to be Hitler"
June 11, 2015
OK, I have officially had it with this walking sack of human excrement the world calls Pat Robertson. Just when I think this mentally retarded shitbag could not possibly utter another vile and unfathomable comment, holy shitballs, he does it again. It is really quite amazing how this deranged fossil can repeatedly outdo himself over and over again.
Recently, on the 700 Club, a viewer emailed the show to ask Robertson what she would tell her co-worker who had just recently lost her 3-year-old baby and was mourning its loss, as to why a good God would let her baby die.
The email stated:
"A co-worker confronted me in the break room and said she can't believe in a God who let her baby of 3 years old die---suffering a long battle in and out of hospitals---while he heals other children. She asked me, "Why did God allow my baby to die?" I told her that I don't know why her child died, but God sees the whole picture, we see only in part. What else can I say?"
Robertson's response? Are you sure you're ready?
"What you have to understand....in the Old Testament it was like, God's responsible for everything. He brings out the bad, he brings out the good. He's responsible for everything. More and more in the New Testament era we have come to realize that human beings have an agency, they have responsibility. And a lot of things happen because of what humans do. People die in hospitals because of medical malpractice. Somebody cuts the wrong thing and somebody dies. It happens all the time. A nurse gives a patient the wrong medicine. Well, are you going to blame that on God? That's not God, that's people who are making mistakes.
As far as God’s concerned, He knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease. God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing. So, how could God do that? How could a good God let that happen? Well, the good God is gonna take that baby to heaven right now and that isn't a bad thing."
I would be utterly appalled at these words if it weren't for the fact that Robertson says shit like this so often, it starts to lose its shock value after 12, 13, 14 or 15 times. Don't misunderstand me at all, it's still appalling for a so-called "Christian" person to tell a grieving mother that the death of their baby is a "good thing", but for Robertson's standards, it's the norm.
Let's break down his insanity, shall we?
First, he starts by suggesting that God changes [from Old to New testaments] from being responsible for everything to being responsible for nothing [odd since the bible says God is unchanging]. He mentions this to suggest that maybe the woman's infant child died because of human error [by the nurse], not anything God did or failed to do. This, of course, is also bullshit since using Pat's logic that God is in the business of exterminating lives before they do evil, why didn't God just exterminate the nurse's life before her error cost the baby's life? Robertson's warped logic here falls in line with the plethora of insane comments he has made in the past, like abortion being the cause of Hurricane Katrina and 9/11 being caused by gays and lesbians.
What kind of logic [or lack thereof] suggests that God is not capable of possessing the wisdom to end the life of a nurse before their error causes the death of a baby, but rather end the baby's life instead because they might commit acts of evil as an adult? Is not God all-powerful? Does he not have the ultimate power to control human events? In Robertson's warped and frightening mind, obviously not.
One major flaw in Robertson's view of how God operates is when he suggests that the baby died in order to prevent it from becoming the next Hitler or Stalin, so others would not perish as a result of evil committed by the toddler in the future. Robertson fails to mention that God didn't kill the actual Hitler or actual Stalin when they were babies, and yet they grew up to slaughter millions of people.
Why didn't God kill the people responsible for 9/11 when they were babies? Oh, that's right Pat, I forgot. He allowed those perpetrators to live and become adults because God knew in the future he would need the attacks of 9/11 to happen in order to blame gays and lesbians for the attack, when [using Pat's logic] God could have just exterminated the gays and lesbians themselves when they were babies and spared the lives of innocent people who died inside the towers.
Why didn't God exterminate Charles Manson as a baby? Why not kill baby O.J. Simpson? Why didn't he exterminate the two teens who murdered the kids at Columbine in 1999? Why didn't God kill baby Ted Bundy? Baby Jeff Dahmer?
I could literally sit here all day and think of names of famous people who have committed acts of evil and violence, who God spared so that they could kill others. But this wouldn't matter to the likes of Pat "I died 25 years ago but don't know it yet" Robertson, because this mentally ill fucknut will still be wheeled out by his 700 Club staff for the sole purpose of spewing his venomous bile to his zombified followers.
And that is the most amazing thing of all, that this colossal brain damaged slug still has people who turn on their TV sets to seek his advice. Why? Imagine the state of mind it requires to actually want guidance from this cretin---to actually turn on the TV set and listen to this on purpose. I can't imagine it. I literally cannot imagine a scenario in which I would think any facet of my life would improve after listening to this man.
I will tell you the truth why this woman's baby died. Because everything happens by chance and there is no one controlling human events. It's the very same reason why you'll run into a mean and nasty person who is 95, but a very sweet, loving and kind person who never spoke a harsh word to anyone is tragically killed in an auto accident at age 18. It's a crap shoot, totally random.
It's why a person who curses God makes a million dollars and the one who has faith in him is poor. Randomness. Nothing more, nothing less. It has nothing to do with "God making the person poor to test their faith", etc. Absolutely nothing. Anyone who tells you that or believes it is fooling themselves.
It's the same reason why my grandfather died at age 36 from leukemia when he had great talent, was a great man, wonderful father and husband, who was liked by everyone and had 6 young children left without a father for the majority of their lives while others live to be 75 or 80 who accomplish nothing and have nothing to live for. Because no one is in control and everything is random. There is no rhyme or reason to anything. Robertson knows this and so do all Christians. They just fool themselves into believing the opposite.
Robertson should have just said, "I'm sorry for your loss. I don't have the answer." But no, not Robertson. To give a response like that, you have to have a conscience first.
