Televangelist Pat Robertson warned his viewers with tattoos on Wednesday that they would be considered heathens, even if the body art included Jesus Christ.
During the “Bring It On” segment of The 700 Club, a viewer told Robertson that a friend was considering getting a tattoo of Jesus on his upper back.
“Does that make it okay?” the viewer wondered.
“It doesn’t make it okay because it’s religious, believe me,” Robertson asserted. “I mean, it could be a tattoo of some hoochie-cooch girl. I mean, it doesn’t really make any difference.”
The TV preacher explained that the Bible forbid people from “marking their bodies, and cut themselves like the heathen did.”
“Tattooing is heathen practice, it is not a Christian practice, to mar the body that [God] gave you,” he insisted. “And you see people that have gone crazy on this, and their bodies are just filled with these things.”
“It is a heathen practice, and it is prohibited in the Old Testament, and so that fact that it’s Jesus doesn’t make a bit of difference.”

Rep AOC helped Bernie Sanders turn out ‘the largest crowd drawn by any candidate’: report
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) helped Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) turn out a huge crowd at a campaign rally in New York City.

That would make this event, his first since his heart attack 18 days ago, the largest crowd drawn by any candidate," Buzzfeed News correspondent Ruby Cramer reported.
‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.
"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.
"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.
Here’s what Trump and his defenders are hiding whenever they insist that something is ‘perfect’
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," civil rights activist and MSNBC contributor Maya Wiley pinned down what it means when President Donald Trump and his associates describe something as "perfect" — a word they have frequently used throughout the Ukraine scandal.
"The problem we have here ... is there is no sunshine, there is no light being shone on what happened here. And one of our questions should also be, why not?" said Wiley. "Every time we hear the word 'perfect' out of the White House — it was a 'perfect' call with the Ukrainian president, now Mick Mulvaney is saying [Trump National Doral] was a 'perfect' place [for a diplomatic summit], serving the needs — every time we hear 'perfect,' and we kind of get the suggestion that they're worried and they've got something to hide."
