Pat Robertson tells grieving mother your dead child could have grown to be Hitler

Some think Robertson's views are completely flawed.


(MediaIate) LEXINGTON CITY, Va. – When Pat Robertson can still surprise you with insanely horrible things that come out of his mouth, at least that’s some evidence that you’re not totally jaded yet.

There is still a little scintilla of innocence left inside of your dark, cavernous soul that still finds the energy to say, “Wait, what?” I’ll let the latest video of Pat Robertson mumbling and drooling some nonsense out of his mouth be that piece of evidence.

A friend of a woman mourning the loss of her three-year-old wrote in to The 700 Club asking what to tell her friend when asked how a good God would let some ill children live but let her child die. In his infinite wisdom, Robertson said that God can see the big picture of life and probably killed her child before he or she could become Adolf Hitler.

Don’t believe me? Don’t think Robertson himself would have the gall to say such a thing to a woman grieving her three-year-old?
Here’s the full quote:

As far as God’s concerned, He knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease. God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.

Still don’t believe it?

But this logic is completely flawed. If Robertson’s version of God truly can see what he says He can see, then why didn’t he kill Hitler, Stalin, or all those serial killers while they were children? Did he see them draw a pretty picture or save a puppy from a fire and then assume that they wouldn’t go on to become evil, so He spared them? Because that’s seems a bit short of seeing “the end from the beginning.”

It appears Robertson just jumped Godwin’s shark. In fact, he may have jumped it, water-skied behind it, then jumped it again.
