Pat Robertson: Comfort grieving mom by saying God stopped her dead baby from becoming next Hitler

Pat Robertson advised a woman to show her Christian love by telling a co-worker that her dead toddler could have grown up to become the next Hitler.

The woman emailed the “The 700 Club” and asked Robertson how she should respond to a co-worker who could not believe in a god who allowed her 3-year-old child to die while healing other children, reported Right Wing Watch.

“I told her that I don’t know why her child died, but God sees the whole picture (while) we see only in part,” the woman said. “What else can I say?”

Robertson said God no longer oversees daily operations of earthly activity as He did in the Old Testament, so human error is more likely to blame for the child’s death.

“More and more in the New Testament era, we have come to realize that human beings have an agency, that have responsibility, and a lot of things happen because humans do,” Robertson said. “I mean people die in hospitals because of medical malpractice – somebody cuts the wrong thing, somebody dies. It happens all the time. Nurse gives the patient the wrong medicine – are you going to blame that on God? That’s not God, that’s people.”

Robertson – who has expressed “strong support” for tort reform limiting awards for medical malpractice – advised the woman to comfort her co-worker by suggesting that God had stopped her child from possibly becoming history’s greatest monster.

“As far as God’s concerned, he knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease,” Robertson said. “God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.”

Trump and Kushner ripped on MSNBC for ‘the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging politics’

Published

on

Speaking on MSNBC this Tuesday, contributor John Heilman said it's hard to think of a "stupider thing to do politically in the closing days of a campaign" than to insult African Americans.

Heilman was referring to recent comments from Jared Kushner where he said the African American community has to "want to be successful" in order to benefit from Republican policies.

"So what's the dumbest thing you could do if you're Jared Kushner, the son-in-law?" Heilman said. "Go out and say a bunch of racist crap that would not only inflame African Americans, rightly so, but would give the most powerful motivator of Black turnout in the country, Barack Obama, as talking point as powerful as that one -- you heard Obama going after Jared Kushner ... he was driving the message of raising the stakes for that voting cohort that matters so much, is literally the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging piece of politics I've seen."

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

Published

on

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

‘No wonder he’s losing suburban women’: Trump flattened for promise he’s putting ‘your husbands back to work’

Published

President Donald Trump is drawing ire from women as his closing message to female voters is, "We’re getting your husbands back to work!"

Trump made the statement to a cheering crowd in Michigan Tuesday, though he didn't clarify what women should do if they work outside of the home and have been laid off due to the pandemic. It also appears the president has decided to ignore unmarried women entirely.
