Pat Robertson dissess are the weird one Pat...time for you to go...

I am still stewing about this...I couldn't agree more with Russell Moore in this piece. I know this is a pro life blog but this IS on topic. Many abortion advocates say who is going to adopt these children and we say we will . Well this man  wouldn't and guess what...... he has a TV show and calls himself Christian. As an grandmother by adoption who welcomed two toddlers from an orphanage in Russia, I say to them....we won't get upset if you are not perfect if you won't get upset that we are not perfect either. We love you and are so glad you are in our family.
From Russell Moore....

 "Let me just say this bluntly. This is not just a statement we ought to disagree with. This is of the devil. The last go round, Robertson “clarified” his statements on a man leaving his sick wife. Didn’t mean to say it was right, he said, just that the man’s got to have some companionship and a divorce is better than adultery. Please. Robertson’s defenders said to me in letters and calls and emails that Robertson is just not what he used to be mentally and that you ought to hold him to a lower standard. That would be true if people were tapping his phone, or going to his house and recording conversations. However, the man is on television, representing to millions of people what Christianity is about. The issue here isn’t just that Robertson is, with cruel and callous language, dismissing the Christian mandate to care for the widows and orphans in their distress. The issue is that his disregard is part of a larger worldview. The prosperity and power gospel Robertson has preached fits perfectly well with the kind of counsel he’s giving in recent years. Give China a pass on their murderous policies; we’ve got business interests there. Divorce your weak wife; she can’t do anything for you anymore. Those adopted kids might have brain damage; they’re “weird.” What matters is health and wealth and power. But that’s not the gospel of Jesus Christ. For too long, we’ve let our leaders replace the cross with an Asherah pole. Enough is enough."
