Quote# 86700

If Pat Robertson's vision of theological payback comes true, Peyton Manning will be injured this season as retribution for the Denver Broncos getting rid of Tim Tebow.

The televangelist was speaking recently on "The 700 Club," which is apparently still on television. He recited Tebow's accolades from the 2011 season and wondered whether the Broncos were tempting fate by leaving him off their 2012 ark.

"And you just ask yourself," Robertson said, "OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he's been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right."

You just have to ask yourself, does Pat Robertson have alzheimers?

We all knew that fundies believe in a petty god, but this is ridiculous.

You're speaking Satanic ways, Pat!

Jesus Christ died for your sins (remember?!) ...that was the whole point of the religion.

Wasn't the whole crucifixion thing to pay the debt of all sins?

Good thing God's taken care of that whole "bad things happen to good people" shit that's been plaguing mankind since time began and can finally get down to business on helping out self-righteous assholes who make millions of dollars for playing a child's game. FINALLY!

'He recited Tebow's accolades from the 2011 season'

That wouldn't have taken very long.

When I first read this story on TheDailyWhat, I posted a poe response about how God's own football team had succumbed to the temptations of Peyton (which even rhymes with Satan) and should immediately return to the righteous path of Teebow.

Sure enough, a fundie has stepped forward to out stupid my post, proving once again that Nathan Poe's law does not go far enough. It is not merely that "it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing," it is that it is impossible to create one so extreme that a genuine fundamentalist won't exceed it.

I think we're doing it wrong.

Maybe if we start having charity rock concerts for American sports millionaires then God will realise we've got them covered and turn his attention to those dying of treatable diseases and thirst.

Isn't it amazing that the evangelists who like American football suddenly start seeing God's work all over it. Almost like he's..... in their minds.

How bout wishing Kony dead, or .... you know... something of fucking import!

3/29/2012 5:45:46 AM


Isn't ill-wishing contrary to the teaching of Jesus?

3/29/2012 5:51:12 AM


God hates roster changes now? What, was Tebow on his fantasy football team? Good thing he's got the leisure time to check which millionaire is playing for which billionaire owner. It's not like there are more pressing needs out there.

Isn't it great, watching these Good Christians having so much fun placing hexes???

Pat Robertson reminds me of some babbling delusional schizophrenics I met while visiting a locked ward in the early 1980s. He has been doing so for quite some time. Makes one wonder how many "inspired prophets" and "religious leaders" are simply undiagnosed and unmedicated. Unfortunately, there are those among us who will believe anything and follow anyone who displays just the right amount of megalomania.

It's not very Christian to wish injury on anyone, including QBs, is it, Pat?

Oh, sorry, I forgot. Fundies don't know the first thing about being Christian.

Christian Love in Action!

Thinking Allowed


So why did the Broncos lose in the playoffs if the christian god really gave a shit? I mean if the christian god really cared, the Broncos would have won the Superbowl.

3/29/2012 8:21:52 AM

To be fair to Robertson, he didn't wish Manning an injury. But should Manning be injured, then Pat says the Broncos deserve it because he thinks they treated Tebow shabbily. Still a foolish thing to say.

The truth is that social conservatives have latched on to Tim Tebow as one theirs and look at him as their proxy in the political battles of the day. It's not something Tebow asked for AFAIK.

To these social conservatives, if you don't like Tebow then you don't like (1)God (2) Christians (3) apple pie (4)America (5) etc. Robertson's comment is an example of the phenomenon.

3/29/2012 8:24:45 AM

In case you didn't notice, Pat, Tebow's team lost BADLY in the playoffs.

3/29/2012 8:45:19 AM


Pat Robertson is senile but his statement goes a long way in demonstrating what I have suspected for a long time now, America's real religion is football.

3/29/2012 9:13:31 AM


Ya know, I would love it if the broncos win the Super Bowl with Manning next year just to see Pat's reaction.

3/29/2012 10:33:40 AM


Pat Robertson - not only God's chosen spokesman but also a football expert.

3/29/2012 11:02:53 AM

You see, god loves Tebow, but is not so fond of the Broncos. Hence the trade. Do try to keep up Pat.

3/29/2012 11:06:23 AM


Of course injuries are pretty fucking inevitable in football so you might as well make the claim that Peyton Manning will have to pay taxes for getting rid of Tim Tebow.

3/29/2012 11:28:25 AM

Pat Robertson is a petty, spiteful idiot example number 365,917.

3/29/2012 11:32:09 AM


That's funny, I've been praying for Tebow to get caught in a shitty hotel room with a male prostitute and some blow since he came to Denver. Who knew I had so much in common with Robertson?

Doubting Thomas

You're really that concerned about St. Timmy, aren't you?

Since St. Timmy was traded to the NY Jets, how long before he's found in Greenwich Village on his knees, and he's not praying?
