Pat Robertson: Don't adopt sexually abused children that could grow up ‘weird'


"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."

While I agree that it was wrong and evil of him to say that, I wouldn't go as far as to say religion is evil....

Makes you wonder what it was that caused Pat Robertson to grow up weird.

Religion isn't alive. It's a grouping of ideas.

Evil people create evil religion.

This guy is an idiot. However I do not see how what he said has to do with his religion.
