Quotes of the Morning: Its Pat!

“Federal judges are a more serious threat to America than Al Qaeda and the Sept. 11 terrorists, the Rev. Pat Robertson claimed yesterday.
‘Over 100 years, I think the gradual erosion of the consensus that's held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings,’ Robertson said on ABC's ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos.’
‘I think we have controlled Al Qaeda,’ the 700 Club host said, but warned of ‘erosion at home’ and said judges were creating a ‘tyranny of oligarchy.’"
-New York Daily News, May 2, 2005

“Here is where Mr. Robertson veers off into the dreaded Ann Coulter territory. He just called the Supreme Court a bunch of traitors. I’m not sure how else to read that. He states that the judiciary, one of the three co-equal legs of our government, is more dangerous than people who would fly planes into buildings and who have already caused thousands of American deaths. The man is a lunatic.”

“We have a court that has essentially stuck its finger in God's eye. We have insulted God at the highest levels of our government. Then, we say, ‘Why does this happen?’ It is happening because God Almighty is lifting His protection from us.”

-Pat Robertson, September 13, 2001

“This is God's power and he sent this thing to warn us ... we needed a shock.”

-Pat Robertson, September 13, 2001, quoted by Robert E. Norlander in a dispatch of September 14, 2001

“Apparently, from Pat’s point of view, Al Qaeda was actually a tool of the Almighty, sent to show us the error of our judiciary. Maybe that’s why he thinks the judges are more dangerous. Al Qaeda is apparently working (indirectly of course) for God, and the courts aren’t.”

“The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by the Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian people and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society. And that's what's been happening.”

-Pat Robertson, The 700 Club television program, December 30, 1981

“Ok.. Can we call him insane yet?”

“Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals -- the two things seem to go together.”

-Pat Robertson, January 21, 1993

“How about now?”

“We have enough votes to run the country. And when the people say, ‘We've had enough,’ we are going to take over.”

-Pat Robertson, April, 1980
