Televangelist Pat Robertson asserted this week that women who wanted to serve their country in combat roles were probably sexual deviants inspired by the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
On the Thursday edition of The 700 Club, Robertson asked co-host Wendy Griffith why women would want to serve in combat roles even after the military announced plans to remove gender restrictions.
“The feminists have gotten to a point where women are going to be drafted and put into combat units,” Robertson remarked. “Why would any woman in her right mind want that?”
Griffith pointed out that “there are women warriors.”
“The Amazons!” Robertson snarked. “You’re living in trenches and eating K-rations and there’s mud and all the rest. Why would anybody want that?”
“I would go if I could take my makeup,” Griffith explained. “I’m not a good candidate, but I think there are some women that feel that call.”
“Maybe there’s a masochistic thing they want,” the TV preacher opined. “That’s bondage, that’s ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ squared.”
“You’re looking at somebody that’s been there, done that,” he concluded. “It ain’t something for a woman.”

‘Be very scared’: GOP lawmaker warns Americans that they could be impeached too
Rep. Earl Leroy "Buddy" Carter (R-GA) fearmongered against the impeachment inquiry during remarks to reporters on Wednesday.
"Ladies and gentlemen, if a government can do this to the President of the United States, they can do this to you as well," he argued.
Under the United States Constitution, only people who work for the federal government can be impeached, with the penalty being the loss of their job.
Still, Carter argued that Americans should be terrified of being impeached themselves.
"You need to be scared," Carter warned. "You need to be very scared."
Bill Barr is ‘obligated to recuse’ himself from Ukraine investigation — or resign: NYC Bar Association
The attorney general of the United States has an obligation to recuse himself from any Department of Justice matters stemming from the Trump administration's dealings with Ukraine, the New York City Bar Association said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has a unique role in safeguarding the rule of law under the Constitution. By failing to recuse himself from DOJ’s review of the Ukraine Matter, Attorney General William P. Barr has undermined that role," the statement read.
