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.”
