Today, on the bastion of truth that is the 700 Club, Pat Robertson offered up some TEAvangelical diet advice. Well, not advice, really…but he had a strong disagreement with positive coverage his OWN NETWORK provided for a method of getting one’s self thin. Pat’s show began with a clip of a Christian Broadcasting Network segment on a high-fat, low carb diet:
Robertson, however, disagrees with his own network’s positive coverage of the diet…BECAUSE IT VIOLATES GOD’S PRINCIPLES…somehow:
This thing is almost totally fat and protein and you can eat cheese and you can eat a lot of bacon and so forth, but sooner or later it violates the principles that God set down.”
I understand that Paul talks about not worrying about eating meat sacrificed to idols. But meat “offered up through Halal” is more than just idol meat. I believe a portion of those monies collected are then sent back to support Jihadist organizations and feel we should not purchase such items…But I am seeing the “Halal brand” symbol appear more and more on American products. What gives?”
OK, OK, I lied! Robertson replied,
The Halal concept is you face the animal toward Mecca and slit his throat. So far, no problems–that’s like Kosher, that’s OK…but our research shows, and our team has discovered that a portion of all profits from these Halal butcheries is going to the Muslim Brotherhood. So it’s not a question of religion; it’s a question of where does the money go? So if you buy Halal food, you’re sending money to the brotherhood…”
In a Christian Broadcasting Network scare piece, there is indeed “information” on Halal food supporting terrosim, and of course being part of the evil Creeping Sharia in America. The article quoted French journalist Alexandre Del Valle as saying, “Nearly 60 Percent of halal food is controlled by organizations belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.” He also claims that Halal food has been a brilliant political and business strategy for the Muslim Brotherhood, acting to both “split the people into two societies within a society,” and of course, “make money.”
As always, Robertson showed us today exactly how far one’s dogmatic delusions can cause him to sink. Both fortunately and unfortunately, Robertson shows no signs of stopping in his continuing quest to create an army of idiots, ready and willing to believe every word that comes from his deceitful mouth. Don’t worry, Pat–while the rest of us laugh at you, your legions of vapid votaries will believe your nonsense.
