Pat Robertson...Wow

Just when Pat Robertson has a broken clock moment about legalizing marijuana, he reverts back to Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement award nomination form   But before I delve into his latest WTF moment, let me allow you TransGriot readers to peruse what he had to say during the 666 Club's (oops 700 Club's) December 28 broadcast about the repeal of marijuana laws.

"I believe that criminalizing marijuana, and the possession of a few ounces of pot is costing us a fortune," Robertson reasoned. "It's ruining young people, [who] go into prisons as youths and come out as hardened criminals, and that's not a good thing."

Like I said..a broken clock is right twice a day..

But the eyebrow raiser was Pat allegedly parting his lips to say that the recent 'snowpocalypse' that smacked the Northeast US and Atlantic coast was God's way of keeping gay activities from happening in the United States.

Rev. Robertson said, “Because of the bad road conditions the Almighty has made, any gay activities that people were planning on doing will have to be postponed by a day or two.”
…As for the millions of straight people in New York City who were also grounded by the bad weather, the televangelist said, “I think God probably wonders, if these people are really straight, then what are they doing in New York?”

Umm hmm.  Right Pat.  Explain all those gay couples stuck at home who were snuggled up under a warm blanket at home with hot chocolate or whatever alcohol du jour and ....

Well, you get the picture.

TransGriot Update:  Should have know something was up when I couldn't find the 666 Club video for the second one and the other comment allegedly attributed to Pat was from satirist Andy Borowitz.   Pat has said enough bizarre and foul stuff over the years to make him an easy target for satirist like Borowitz.
