Pat Robertson Finally Admits He’s Full Of Crap
When asked about oral sex within marriage, Pat Robertson responded:
“The Bible doesn’t make that sinful,” Robertson said. “The question is: What’s in your heart?”
Wait. What? “What’s in your heart?” That’s an awfully subjective measure for something that supposedly will condemn you to hell for all eternity. And just to clarify that such a moral judgement is absolutely arbitrary,Good Ol’ Fire and Brimstone Pat followed up with this dazzling gem:
“It’s a question of what is in your mind,” Robertson said. “If you feel it’s sin — it’s sin.”
So if the Bible does not take a specific stance on a topic, like, for instance, abortion and stem cell therapy, then it is completely up to you to decide if it is sinful. And since religious conservatives are manifestly incapable of keeping their opinions to themselves, that means if some pious prude decides a blow job is sinful, that means no one should get one and by God it must be made illegal!
Liberals have been pointing out for years that religious conservatives are just making it up as they go along but it’s rare to see someone of Robertson’s stature confirm it in no uncertain terms. Conservatives do not bend their views to match their religion, they bend their religion to match their views. And then they use it to bend the rest of to their will. It has to stop.
