Televangelist Pat Robertson lamented this week that it would be difficult for Christians to escape media “blasphemy” like homosexuals being depicted in movies until Jesus returned during the End Times.
On Wednesday’s edition of The 700 Club, a viewer complained to Robertson that she was having trouble finding TV shows, movies and books that “do not have street language, sex, or blasphemy.”
“If you don’t see some of these things, you would have to leave the world,” the TV preacher admitted. “The world is saturated with sexual innuendos. I mean, good grief. How many ads for Victoria’s Secret do you have to look at?”
“That’s the whole idea is to have scantily clad models selling products, whether it’s toasters or automobiles or insurance, I mean, they’re out there,” he continued. “There are some things are really vile, and the answer is you shouldn’t be watching them.”
“But the fact that there are about 200 screenwriters in Hollywood who have the dominance in the media, and they’re doing everything they possibly can to put dirty language and sexual situations, and now homosexuality into scripts over and over and over again.”
Robertson recalled that he had spoken to a “sweet little old lady” who wrote romance novels, but she was required to have a sex scene “every ten pages.”
“This little old grandmother [writes], ‘She was breathing hard and he grabbed her,'” Robertson laughed. “She had to put that in her books! Because the publisher said you’ve got to have it in order to sell the stuff.”
“We live in a corrupt world, and until the Lord comes back, it’s going to be difficult to live in it,” he concluded.
