Pat Robertson tells his 700 Club audience that opposing Muslims is like opposing Nazis

June 1, 2011

It’s sad when a person of the cloth—a religious leader—preaches hate instead of love. When Florida pastor Terry Jones publicly burned a Quran it was a hateful act, but we could minimize its significance as an act by a pastor to a “congregation” of 5o people (his claim).

But when Christian evangelist Pat Robertson equates Muslims with Nazis it’s a whole ‘nother story. Robertson said on his 700 Club broadcast today,

“Why is it bigoted to resist Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and to say we don’t want to live under Nazi Germany? But oh it’s bigoted if we speak out against a force [Islam] that slowly but surely is trying to exercise domination over the world.”

Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network claims a reach of 100 languages, 200 countries, a million viewers a day. His hatefulness is a blot on all Christian evangelists who tolerate his ugly message.
