You know I shouldn't be surprised by the incredible ego, selfishness and general stupidity Pat Robertson exhibits on a daily basis, but this particular moment hits kind of close to home.
During his 700 Club show, Robertson took a question from a woman who has a deaf son. She told Robertson that despite her prayers, God hasn’t restored her child’s hearing. Instead of comforting the woman, the conservative charlatan shamed her for not being able to heal her son with prayer. Robertson told her that she must have done something wrong that caused God to reject her pleas. Robertson also claimed that he has successfully healed deafness himself.As some of you know, I too suffer from a hearing loss and it actually got to the point I had about 5% hearing left in one ear while the other ear was completely deaf. I didn't pray my deaf away, I went and got a surgery and as that diary shows, I have had my life restored. God didn't make me deaf, some unknown reason did and maybe it's because of all those years blasting rock music, but who the fuck knows? It might have been my fault in part, but it's almost definitely not this poor woman's fault that her kid was born or became deaf at a young age.
If Pat actually had a single bit of actual Christian decency in him or, fuck, I don't know, the amount of humanity in the common turnip instead of lying and claiming he can heal deafness, he could have told this woman about that wonderful medical advance known as a cochlear implatn. Shit, he could have gone all touchy-feely Christian and told her Gawd had worked through the wonderful technical and medical people to make it possible for her child to have at least some hearing restored. Instead he does his usual asshole routine.
Yo, lady, I don't expect you will see this and I doubt you visit this site, but if you want to fix your child's hearing stop listening to that jackass and visit this forum, or go to this group on facebook or fuck reply to this blog post and I'll help steer you in the right direction.
And as for you, Pat, go fuck yourself you worthless sack of shit. Ugh... just ugh...
