Televangelist Pat Robertson says it's "crazy" that the U.S. Air Force will now allow servicemen and women to omit the words "so help me God" from official oaths. “What is wrong with the Air Force?" he beseeched viewers on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s "The 700 Club" on Thursday. The Air Force announced the policy change this week, after an atheist airman in Nevada crossed out the words on his re-enlistment paperwork. Officials initially refused to accept the man's papers; but after reviewing the case, the Department of Defense General Counsel eventually ruled that the airman could leave out the phrase if he wanted. "All of the other military services have allowed the alternate language for years," The Associated Press reports.
On Thursday’s edition of “The 700 Club,” televangelist and former GOP presidential candidate Pat Robertson expressed his concern over the way that “the girl-on-girl movies” are supposedly influencing young people to pursue homosexual relationships. When a viewer called in for Robertson’s advice about how best to deal with news that her 21-year-old daughter had begun dating a woman, the host offered some words of wisdom about LGBT millennials. “I think she needs somebody to help her get her identity straight,” Robertson said. “She may not be right in this, she may have thought she has a crush on some older girl along the way and she’s actually homosexual when she’s not, I don’t know. The whole question of sexual identity has gotten so blurred in the press these days it’s hard to know.

Televangelist Pat Robertson, 83, has said so many outlandish and offensive things—most of them directed at gay people—that it’s hard to compile them all into one list. But in light of his latest claim that murderous gay people are trolling around cities like San Francisco spreading AIDS through some sort of knife-like ring that cuts a person’s finger by their shaking hand (really), we’ve decided to pull together at least some of his most egregious statements.
Pat Robertson, the controversial televangelist and host of the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club," is said to have stunned many of his viewers on Tuesday when he dispelled the idea -- held dear by many Bibical creationists -- that Earth is only 6,000 years old.
