You can learn a great deal about a man by the words of wisdom that they spread. In this article, we will mainly take a look at some of the quotes attributed to Pat Robinson, which have caused inspiration in some people, as well as infuriated others.
Tapping back into his law roots, Robertson founded and became the president of the American Center for Law and Justice, which focused on matters of public interest law. The goal of the organization is to defend Christians whose First Amendment rights have been allegedly violated. Most cases center on pro-family and pro-life cases that stretch across the United States.
Quotes by Pat Robertson
To learn a bit more about Robertson, perhaps his own words can shed a little light into his personality and character. Below you will find a handful of quotes attributed to Robertson throughout the years:
The New York Magazine quoted Robertson in their August 18th, 1986 issue as saying: “It is interesting, that termites don’t build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into (our) institutions (today) are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have…. The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation.”
In regards to the ‘mission of the Christian Coalition, Pat Robertson was quoted as saying: “The mission of the Christian Coalition is simple,” says Pat Robertson. It is “to mobilize Christians — one precinct at a time, one community at a time — until once again we are the head and not the tail, and at the top rather than the bottom of our political system.” Robertson predicts that “the Christian Coalition will be the most powerful political force in America by the end of this decade.” And, “We have enough votes to run this country…and when the people say, ‘We’ve had enough,’ we’re going to take over!”
On January 13, 1995, Robertson said on “The 700 Club”: “You see what happened in 1962. They took prayer out of the schools. The next year the Supreme Court ordered Bible reading taken from the schools. And then progressing, liberals, most of them atheistic educators, have pushed to remove all religion from the lives of children…The people who wrote the “Humanist Manifesto” and their pupils and their disciples are in charge of education in America today.”
From Pat Robertson’s book, The New World Order (page 227), he states: “How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy money changers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?”
