Pat Robertson: Smoking pot is ‘slavery to vegetables,’ but God can ‘set you free’

  1. Rob Cypher
    Televangelist Pat Robertson said on Monday that people who smoked marijuana, used cocaine or consumed alcohol had been enslaved by vegetables.

    “God gave you and me as human beings authority, he gave us dominion over everything on this Earth,” the TV preacher explained on Monday’s 700 Club. “Over all the animals, all the snakes, all the birds, all the plants, all the vegetables.”

    Cocaine is the product of a vegetable, alcohol is the product of a vegetable, marijuana is a vegetable,” he continued. “And yet, people are enslaved to vegetables. And you were made in the image of God. God made you in his image to reign and rule with him. He gave you incredible authority.”

    “Why would you become a slave to a vegetable? Why? Why would you do it.?

    Robertson said that he had “seen a lot of stuff” in his lifetime so he understood that people had a lot of problems, “but God Almighty can deliver you from the bondage of your addiction.”

    “Your slavery to vegetables, he can set you free,” he insisted.

    The United States Department of Agriculture officially classifies cannabis as “herb.”

    I'm going to show this to a very Churchy/stoner couple I know. Fuck with their heads a little bit lol.

    They smoke like 7g between them a week and when asked if they like hip hop the guy says "I like christian hip hop" LOL

    Ummm... isn't the origin of all foods, including meat for you carnivores, ultimately vegetable or plant matter?

    Guess we're all slaves to vegetables, unless "God" can magically make our bodies acquire sustenance by some other means, however one would probably pray themselves into starvation.

    Someone needs to explain to the good Rev, what real science is.

    BTW, wasn't he in some sort of scandal or something? Why are we still listening to these guys?

    Be responsible...

    Yeah, he got some flack for owning stock in companies that were involved with hiring mercenaries to defend their diamond mines in Sierra Leone, IIRC. (They call the results that are mined out of those areas "blood diamonds" due to the violence that tends to accompany their discovery.) Doesn't seem to have gotten him in any trouble with his followers, though. Go figure.

    The funny thing about Pat Robertson is that when he finally becomes senile and gets dementia, no one will notice because there will be no difference.

    It's rare fro Ol' Pat to open his mouth and NOT say something stupid/scandalous.

    "Yoga tricks you into speaking 'hindu'." 2/17/2015

    "Witches cast curses on to pictures of ultra-sound babies on FB" 2/14/2015

    "You should probably 'rebuke demons' from any thrift store clothes you bring home, just in case"

    "Gays Will 'Die Out Because They Don't Reproduce" 12/17/14

    "Stop talking about the cheating, he cheated on you, he's a man."

    "If you tithe* enough, you don't have health or financial problems."

    "Kissing cousins,hey hey. There's nothing, i mean I the bible doesn't say** anything about problems marrying first cousins...... You don't want to have mongoloid children, I shouldn't say mongoloid"

    Liberals support abortions because "lesbians can't have babies, so if married hetro woman have abortions it puts them on a level playing field".

    "We're locking up people for a couple puffs of marijhuana and people are locked up for 10 years.... I don't support drug use, but criminalizing a few pounces of pot and making kids criminals, that's wrong."

    WAIT.... what was that last one? Did he just say criminalizing pot is wrong?

    Kid you not.

    What will Crazy Ol' Pat Robertson say next? Who knows but I'm sure it will leave us laughing and shameful. RightWingWatch.com does a good job keeping videos of the best crap he spews, I can link to vids off site of all of the above statement if anyone needs further proof this isn't an elaborate satire on my part.

    I think Mr Pat went senile a LONG TIME AGO. When I watch some of his rants I don't know if I should laugh or pitty him though I normally just laugh or give a "WTF?" look at my monitor.
