Pat Robertson, people, has jumped the shark.
Count this among the 10 things nobody ever expected to see in their lifetimes: 700 Club founder Pat Robertson, one of the cornerstone figures of America’s Christian right movement, has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana.
Calling it getting “smart” on crime
…Robertson became a fool.
Well, at least there’s Scriptural precedent, y’know?
Robertson aired a clip on a recent episode of his 700 Club television show that advocated the viewpoint of drug law reformers who run prison outreach ministries.
Yeah, y’know, Pat – drug runners have a “prison outreach ministry”, too. Usually, it has something to do with passing along instructions on how to run the cartel.
A narrator even claimed that religious prison outreach has “saved” millions in public funds by helping to reduce the number of prisoners who return shortly after being released.
Yeah, I’ll just bet. Or maybe it’s just a strong desire to avoid a return “engagement” as Bubba’s bitch, if you will.
“It got to be a big deal in campaigns: ‘He’s tough on crime,’ and ‘lock ‘em up!’” the Christian Coalition founder said. “That’s the way these guys ran and, uh, they got elected. But, that wasn’t the answer.”
Uh, Patricia? Yes, it was. “Lock ‘em up”, and keep locking ‘em up until the drug-addled dumbasses get the clue.
Who knows? Maybe one of ‘em will pick up the one you’ve lost, Pattianne.
I think, over the next few days/weeks, you will see donations to the 700 Club take a plunge off the cliff. Followed shortly, of course, by Pattianne Robertson’s sudden decision to “retire” to “spend more time with his family”.
Perhaps they can spend it toking.
