One of the most hateful “Christians” on television finally announced his retirement this week as Pat Robertson will step down as host of his 700 Club show, much to the delight of Americans across the country.
Robertson has spent 55 years spreading his hateful messages, most notably targeting women, people of color, and the LGBT community in a very un-Christ-like manner.
Some of Robertson’s most ridiculous remarks include claiming that people in the Midwest could pray tornadoes away back in 2012.
“If enough people were praying, (God) would’ve intervened. You could pray. Jesus stilled the storm. You can still storms,” Robertson said. Praying tornadoes away has still not worked and never did.
Robertson infamously told married women during one show that they should be submissive to their husbands and blamed them for their husbands committing adultery because they aren’t keeping a “wonderful” home. He also advised men to divorces their Alzheimer’s-stricken wives.
Robertson’s frequent attacks against the LGBT community include blaming them for destructive hurricanes.
And that’s all just the tip of the iceberg. It’s also why people to Twitter to express relief that he’s retiring and to remind the world that he’s a monster and a hypocrite.
Few people in modern American history have done more damage to Christianity and the common good than Pat Robertson. He’s an apostle of hate, not a follower of Jesus. https://t.co/Hq5YPWFoOn

Pat Robertson contributed 55 years of damage to society at large with racism, misogyny, and xenophobia weaved into Christianity. https://t.co/5ouMC96i3J

“It’ll bring about terrorist bombs; it’ll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor.”

In honor of Pat Robertson’s retirement, we’re gonna repost this 2013 clip where he claimed that gay people wear special rings to infect others with AIDS. CBN edited it out of the broadcast and then tried to take down our videos to hide it. They failed. https://t.co/7PllSbDn1F https://t.co/qREKV46oxx pic.twitter.com/u5Lnqwa1IA

Pat Robertson will be taking a lot of steps down soon, each one a little warmer than the last. https://t.co/C79KBdRqVD

Robertson did not deserve to be a television host, nor did he deserve all the money he has grifted. He absolutely does not deserve to have a happy and cushy retirement either. He put people through hell by making them targets of a hateful Republican culture war and he abused Christianity to do it. He should live in perpetual shame for what he has said and done, and so should the rest of his family.
