Pat Robertson Asks God to Remove Obama From Office

Pat Robertson is so unhappy with Obama that he is reaching out to… God. Earlier this week, Robertson took to his 700 Club show to ask God to “deliver the US from President Obama.”

Robertson begins his segment by implying that President Obama is a Muslim (that old gag), citing a 2012 speech in which the President says “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

For Robertson, that out-of-context quote is all he needs to rile up his already-incensed viewers. In reality, however, Obama’s speech said “The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt – it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons. The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people.”

The part from which Robertson pulled the quote states “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.”

Anyway, Robertson continued his spiel, saying “Our president is frankly out of his mind, making a statement like that. The future belongs only to those who belong to God almighty, not those who believe in this stuff.”

He concludes, saying “We need to do something to pray to be delivered from this president. He is a disaster, an absolute disaster. Democrat, Republican or whatever, this country is in serious decline unless something dramatic is done about it.”

    He isn’t dead? I will pray he dies.

    Pat is aces with those of the lunatic fringe over 85 or the recently deceased. Who will take over the 700 Club Scam ( Maybe Dubya Bush?) when the old ass clown croaks?

    Here’s another that would like to have our country under the mantra of the Evangelistic Credo, similar to the “Seria laws” that Muslims tout. Our president has done nothing that should deserve this invented line of character assassination. He has always been a good Christian and a good family man.

    And while you pray for Obama’s removal, I will pray for yours. You are long overdue for a meeting with your maker.

    This is proof that there are false prophets as predicted in the bible..Pat Robertson will lead many straight to hell where he is headed..

  • Now do you understand why only 2 billion of the 7 billion on this planet have signed up for this revealed religion? And why are we even reading articles like this in the 21st Century anyway?

  • Kurt Gerhardt

    Pat advocates Jiminy Jindal as a presidential candidate. Pat’s audience is already embalmed, as a matter of fact.

  • Doy Bowers

    I’ll be praying for Pat Robertson’s removal from the planet earth and for him to be reunited with his Evil Cohort Jerry Falwell in HELL!!!!

  • Isaiah Liggins

    Why not pray for his salvation rather than removal. Some Christians don’t really know God’s heart. He said “I would that all men be saved.” It’s not Christ-like to pray for anything other than someone’s salvation. Please, Mr. Robertson, stop prostituting the gospel.

    I hope Robertson burns in hell.

    • Goforride

      Naaaaaahhhh.He just needs to go away

      • thomasbone63

        May he reap what he sow.

        • thomasbone63

          I hope he reads his fan fare.

  • Pamela Helms

    A whack nut job. That’s plain to see. He should be asking for a healing.

  • armynda stanley

    Pat Roberson needs to go somewhere and sit down and re-read his Bible. People will start to say he is crazy. If you want to be relevent speak on relevent issues and possibe solutions. Not spue hate for the very leader the Bible says to pray for.

  • Greg Van Ho

    Pat, just die, do the world a favor

  • Monroe Frazier

    Pat Robertson will have his prayers answered. President Obama will be out of office as soon as his second term is up. The republicans will have the reigns once again. That is if they can control there bad actions across the party. They constantly make news headlines themselves with very unconservative, immoral and illegal behavior.

  • Patti Lipsig

    hmm…this sounds dangerously close to inciting someone to assassinate the president…

  • ktorch

    Why would God do that? He sent Obama to heal our land and he has done a great deal to that end, it’s just that God’s so called people here in the USA would crucify Obama if they could, just like they did Jesus in his time.
