The Bible is of God, but not the Quran says Pat Robertson.[su_center_ad]

Robertson, who regularly cites Qur’anic verses as proof that Islam is an inherently violent and genocidal religion, said the main difference is that God commanded the mass killings found in the Bible in order to curb the corrupting influences of idol-worshipers, while violent acts in the Quran were ordered by Allah.

“How can you say it’s not like the other? The other is in the name of Allah,” he reasoned.

    It sorta depends on which god you’re talking about, doesn’t it?

      There’s definitely plenty to choose from:

        The best explanation I’ve heard from an atheist to a christian (could be any religion) was this: The atheist told the christian, “You don’t believe in Allah, Buddha, Vishnu, Thor, Zeus, Pele, Quetzalcoatl, or Jupiter, right?” “Right.” “Well, my list is just one longer than your list.”

          It’s also put as “I just believe in one less god than you do.” Let them explain why they only believe in the one.

          I just found it for you:

            the christian god is really three gods, unless they want him to be just one, unless they want him to be three again. Sounds reasonable./s

            But is certainly NOT the same god as Allah or Yahweh…and they never use the old Jewish testament unless they want to hate on somebody.

    ” …, he reasoned.” REASONED? Dude, you’re talking about Pat Robertson.

  3. M D Reese September 22nd, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    I do believe that it’s the same damn supernatural being, Pat. It’s sort of like arguing over comic book characters. They are what they are.

      But there’s a certain amount of logic to superheroes. I haven’t seen any when it comes to god, whichever one you choose.

    Mr. Robertson has incurable foot-in-mouth disease.

  5. tiredoftea September 22nd, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    So, his favorite imaginary superbeing can beat up all the other imaginary superbeings because Pat says so? I’m going to check with the Flying Spaghetti Monster for confirmation on that.

    “How can you say it’s not like the other? The other is in the name of Allah,” he reasoned.

    He reasoned?? Please don’t try to credit this clown with something he is incapable of doing.

  7. Kingminnie September 22nd, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    So, violence and killing is ok if his God does it. Not ok if somebody else’s god does it. Got it.

  8. edmeyer_able September 22nd, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    Hey Pat….pretty sure God doesn’t want you to kill anyone. He can kill as many as he wants anytime he wants.

  9. arc99 September 22nd, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    Well my goddess tells me that if those Judeo-Christian and Islamic wannabe deities keep talking about killing people, she is going to pay a little visit to their neighborhoods in the cosmos, and kick both their a$$es to the end of eternity.

    Irony is lost on Robertson.

  11. juicyfruityyy September 22nd, 2014 at 6:07 pm

    ONLY, in Robertson’s bible; will you find this.

  12. William September 22nd, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    They say that age is a personality enchancer. But what if you’re already an asshole?

  13. bpollen September 22nd, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    OK, Pat, then explain to me how you justify Richard Coeur de Lion and his slaughter of the prisoners at Acre during the Third Crusade? Especially since this was over a millenium after the bible was magically written, and over 700 years after it became magically delicious at the Council of Nicea.

  14. searambler September 22nd, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Never ceases to amaze me how many christians don’t know that muslims and christians worship the same deity…..

  15. eddie1247 September 22nd, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    This guy is an idiot! How do I know? ♫ The Bible tells me soooooooo♫

  16. Glen September 22nd, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    Someone should tell Pat Robertson that “Allah” is just the Arabic word for god, like how “Elohim” is the Hebrew word for gods (indeed, they’re of the same root – allah and elohim). Hence why Arab Christians refer to their god as “Allah”, too.
