The 700 Club seems like the relic from a different time, a time when everyone was awful and racist. A lot of people are still awful and racist, of course, but not as many have TV shows. The hateful The 700 Club, however, has been on the Christian Broadcasting Network since 1966 and shows no signs of being put out of its pitiful misery. Host Pat Robertson isn’t able to spew out his bigotry as much he used to and with as much fervor — it’s more of a slow, drippy leak now — but the 83-year-old has sucked down enough baby fetuses to still be a monster.
Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands. However, one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson’s comments after they aired…
“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.” (Via)
