 MIa’s thoughts- How dare this so called man of god,how dare he.  I am not christian I do Not believe in god, but I do know the bible back to front and when you call yourself to ministry and dedicate your life to it you agree to live with that as your manual.
The bible on every page re-enforces “we are all perfect in the eyes of god” and “suffer unto me the little children” and ” he who but refuses one of mine refuses me” but more apropo to this faux man of god is in revelations  god says”In the last days many will come in my name declaring they are of me they are not” pat robertson you are a disgrace.

 
 

 

CBN's Pat Robertson

 

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Thursday cautioned his viewers to think twice before adopting disadvantaged children that had been sexually abused or deprived of food because they could grow up “weird.”

During Thursday’s edition of The 700 Club co-host Kristi Watts read a letter from a woman who wanted to know why men stopped dating her when they learned that she had adopted three daughters from three different countries.

“Can I answer?” Watts asked. “I was going to say because they’re dogs. … That’s just wrong on every level.”

“No, it’s not wrong,” Robertson disagreed. “A man doesn’t want to take on the United Nations, and this woman’s got all these various children and blended family. What is it?”

The TV preacher then told a story about his “dear friend” who had adopted a son with brain damage and the boy “grew up weird.”

“You just never know what’s been done to a child before you get that child,” he explained. “What kind of sexual abuse, what kind of cruelty, what kind of food deprivation, etc., etc., etc.”

“So, you’re not a dog because you don’t want to take on that responsibility,” Robertson added. “You don’t have to take on somebody else’s problems.”

“OK, let’s get to the next question. I’m in trouble.”

  1. Isn’t this the same disgrace to Christianity that thinks that same sex parenting is a form of child abuse? He’s so, so, so… ignorant.

  2. Talk about a cauldron! I came across this story on Christian Post and no one was supporting Pat Robertson. Sadly, Pat has a history of putting his foot in his mouth. He should have been retired. He did come out with what sounds like an apology. However, I’m not trusting the guy.

  3. I think you have to understand something is going on in the international adoption agency community and has been for the last 30+ years. A lot of children (not babies) the foreign countries are sending to America have severe problems, and they’re purposely and fraudulently labeled healthy.

    As a result American parents bring RAD kids into healthy families, and it is devastating to all involved, people are bombs too! The amount of damage a mentally ill person is capable of inflicting is pretty shocking not just physically, and emotionally, but also financially.

    Much is lost, especially in time, sleep, and any personal space of any kind is gone. They’re not dangerous just as adults, but as children too. They need professionally designed fire-proof facilities, residential homes may not offer the security needed.

    How would you treat a child that you were sure might set your home on fire out of anger? That might pour Draino in your coffee? That has already put dead insects in your food? You know you have a very emotionally volatile person to deal with that has not developed any of the inhibitions that would keep them from doing really dangerous things, plus they’re developmentally stunted. So they get bigger and have less inhibitions!

    You don’t get a break, you either work, or deal with the results. Work is probably like a sort of daily paradise. The spouse or child who is exposed 24/7 is likely to develop severe depression, and or PTSD. They don’t get a break, and are constantly having their adrenal glands triggered, are also hormonally disrupted, sleep deprived.

    Think about it from the perspective of the foreign born adopted child. Often after having been physically and emotionally abused and certainly neglected, or even further abused by being left unsupervised with other unstable children they are shuffled around with.

    They are then sent to a nation with a different language to live with people they barely know. They are basically totally isolated for years or more as nobody even speaks their language. How messed up is that? How would you behave?

    Can you imagine someone shipping you to be raised by Mongolian cattle ranchers, none of which speak English? You’d be unable to communicate any of your needs, then people would think you’re dumb, because you’re so cut off from information, and when you deal with other people, you’re always an outsider. You’d be bullied constantly, might you get so angry you’d grab a stick and beat down all the Mongolian shrines? They’d think you were demented maybe evil.

    People make fun of your accent, and treat you like garbage, because you will in fact be far behind others in a number of developmental milestones, none of which are your fault but will make you untrustworthy, unfamiliar, and perhaps disliked by others.

    Your life so far is a very frustrating yarnball of pain and isolation. And this is what is being FedEx’d across borders! Misery!

    • So because when they were a precious innocent child and because of no fault of their own a monster cret into their nursery and raped them you would havve them what?euthanised? put in a gulag? lobomised? i was one of thos echildren and yes i was a problem child but i am now at over fifty years of age still here alive and things are getting really good listen noone said parenting was easy you can have a biological child who becomes a pyhscopath ask geoffrey dharmas mother. when you adopt its not a cotillion you dont get the luxury of ordering your favorite flavoor you are adopting a precious being if its damaged thats your job to prove to it that not every adult that touches wants to rape them if you are not up to the job stop whiing andget a pet rock because you will do more damage to that child thna he can ever do to you
