Pat Robertson Says the Christian Thing to do is, “Destroy Your Friend’s Buddha Statue”

Pat Robertson Says the Christian Thing to do is, “Destroy Your Friend’s Buddha Statue”

Everyone knows the Taliban are just the Afghan version of the Pat Robertson’s of the world, right? Pat Robertson was asked on air by a concerned Christian named “Jenny” about a moral quandary she had relating to her roommate’s “Buddha statue.”

Jenny: My friend who is a Christian has a Buddha statue next to her Christian ones. Is this ok?

Pat Robertson, who always speaks Biblically gave a pretty unequivocal answer, “Destroy it.”

Pat Robertson: No its not. Take it away and break it. Break it! Destroy it.

So the message is Christian statues are OK but not Buddhist ones, oh and don’t respect the property of other peoples!

Pat Robertson: Destroy Your Friends Buddha Statue

Here at WITWM, we frown upon all acts of religious desecration. When the Taliban destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan in March of 2001 it was not only unIslamic but immoral on many levels. Now Pat Robertson is calling for similar measures, can one imagine if a Muslim Imam had said something similar? As of now there is barely a peep about this. (h/t Critical Dragon)

  1. “Everyone knows the Taliban are just the Afghan version of the Pat Robertson’s of the world, right?” well they might be slightly more violent then robertson. but who knows, if roberton was put in charge he may run the country very much like the taliban ran theirs. what is amazing is that the afghans allowed the taliban to charge. we must be ever vigilant against the rise of any religious law in america. another excellent article in support of the kansas law.

    reminds me of cair pissing and moaning about the statue of muhammad at the supreme court. all these abrahamics seem to want to impose their mythology on us all.

    the biible and the koran have many objectionable concepts within them. they have no place in american courtrooms.

  2. The message is not “Christian statues are OK but not Buddhist ones,” the message is that Buddha statues are a symbol of a religion, and that people who claim that they follow Christianity are hypocritical to own them. Whether you agree with that or not, this article is just making a straw man argument. Pat Robertson is an ass too, but how is he wrong in thinking that people should live by their professed beliefs?

  3. There’s nothing wrong with someone living by their beliefs, but that woman has no right to touch her friend’s things, let alone break them. If you want to be really picky, Christian statues are against the ten commandments (depending on which version you choose to follow of course).
