Rupert Murdoch on Pat Robertson

25 November 2007

Back in 1988, when Pat Robertson was running for President, Rupert Murdoch had this to say about the crazy man:

"He's right on all the issues"

Let's take a look back at some of Robertson's stances on the issues.
  • If anybody understood what Hindus really believe, there would be no doubt that they have no business administering government policies in a country that favors freedom and equality."
  • "[Homosexuals] want to come into churches and disrupt church services and throw blood all around and try to give people AIDS and spit in the face of ministers."
    -The 700 Club 1/18/1995
  • "I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period."
  • "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."
    -Interview with Molly Ivins
  • "I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear. The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."
    -Recounting how God talked to him about an upcoming disaster
  • "Presbyterians are the spirit of the Antichrist."
    -The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, p. 239
  • "When lawlessness is abroad in the land, the same thing will happen here that happened in Nazi Germany. Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals – the two things seem to go together."
He also said that he totally concurred when Falwell blamed the 9/11 attacks on homosexuals, etc.
