Pat Robertson is siding with a man who says his family is pressuring him to see a doctor, as he has already asked God to be his physician.

Robertson defended the viewer’s refusal to take a trip to the doctor’s office: “There’s some people who think that doctors are god and they really aren’t. You’ve asked God to be your physician so stick with it and say ‘Lord, I’m asking you for it.’”

The televangelist and faith-healer qualified that while people should still take medicine, a doctor’s visit isn’t necessary.

“You’ve made a commitment to the Lord, stick with it, don’t let your family influence you, do what you feel like doing,” he said. “Live your life, God bless you.”[su_center_ad]

    The man is completely insane.

      Which one, Robertson, or any fool who listens to him?

    “Or, before you die, make sure that I’m in your will. God will thank you for it.”

    • Larry Schmitt December 15th, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      And after that happens, can I be in your will? Don’t know about god, but I will definitely thank you for it.

    I hope every doctor on earth refuses to see him when he inevitably gets sick or injured. Oh whats that? You had a bad fall and your impaled yourself on a wrought iron fence that’s too bad, perhaps the laying on of hands can help? Maybe we can light some incense and pray?

      I don’t like the guy either but I wouldn’t say that or wish that.
      I’d hope he gets medical attention when and if he needs it.
      Sorry to depart from the herd on that one.

        NO need to apologize, we all have the right to speak our minds at least when it comes to me and my conversations. I say these things because hopes and wishes much like prayer when placed against the veneer of reality does little. Trust me for as much as I hope none of those things will actually happen. Ive been hoping and wishing for a giant robot since I was 6 years old…I’m 40 now…still nothing. 🙂

    We have already seen successful lawsuits by companies who refuse to cover birth control in their insurance plans because it conflicts with their religious beliefs.

    It will not surprise me at all if we one day see some company whose health insurance plan covers nothing except an annual tithe to a church.

    Try that with your kid Pat and you go to prison… no ifs ands or in your case butts

    • Carla Akins December 15th, 2014 at 5:01 pm

      We can be thankful the caller wasn’t calling about a child. Pat is a jackass, but if an adult wants to follow his ridiculous advice that’s his own problem.

        And they throw $$$$ at him too…have a news flash for him…he leaves it all behind and he will discover that SHE doesn’t have much of a sense of humor with his ilk

    Stupid, senile old prick. God (if he existed) doesn’t care. He has far too much to do determining who’ll score the next touchdown or goal and covering the point spread.

    • Larry Schmitt December 15th, 2014 at 5:23 pm

      And helping all those students who didn’t study for the finals.

  7. MIAtheistGal December 15th, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    This man needs to see both a physical doctor and a psychiatrist. Stat!

  8. Robert Merrill Taylor December 15th, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    Ol’ Pat is a faith healing charlatan. Of course he would say that.

  9. William December 15th, 2014 at 4:46 pm

    Well maybe he’s right after all, remember when he predicted Russia would invade Israel in 1982?

  10. Suzanne McFly December 15th, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    In other words….”don’t waste your money on doctors, send it to me and I will pray non-stop for your soul. Amen.”

    I wonder, did his wife have a baby at home, does he clean his own teeth and never see a dentist, He had a heart problem, does he just pray to god to keep him alive?

    “You’ve made a commitment to the Lord, stick with it, don’t let your family influence you, do what you feel like doing,”

    Just make sure you mail your $1000 prayer fee today, right this minute – before it’s too late.

    I am appropriately outraged.

    This is just more proof that all Christians are insanely evil.
    They’re responsible for ebola, y’know.
    And male pattern baldness.
    Can’t we just shoot-em all and be done with it?
    First torture them, then shoot them all.

    • Bunya December 16th, 2014 at 2:23 pm

      Drink too much coffee today, didya? Go have some fish sticks. It’ll calm you down a bit.
      BTW, we’re liberals here. We don’t believe in torture and killing.

    “Robertson does not forgo healthcare for himself and underwent heart surgery in 2009. The preacher has also counseled physicians on how to bring about miraculous healings for the ill in a hospital setting suggesting – according to his own advice – seeing a doctor and asking God for healing are not mutually exclusive.”
    what a hypocrite.

    • Bunya December 16th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

      It just goes to show how much he believes in the power of prayer.

  15. crc3 December 16th, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    The idiot has spoken yet again…
