You have to “smack” your child to “protect” them from evil music.

A woman named Marie wrote in to Robertson about her 11-year-old son, who she said had “recently started listening to music that speaks of the ‘beast within’ and the ‘infection in people’.”

“I worry for his soul,” the mother told Robertson. “I know the Lord is going to save him; but what can I do to help him become a nice person and the sweet little boy I miss so much?”

The televangelist advised that the boy was going into puberty and “it doesn’t hurt to smack a little 11 year old around a little bit and say, ‘You behave, you’re not going to listen to that garbage in my house. If you do I’m going to tear it up and break those records or CD or whatever, iPods, however you get that mess.’”

“I know he’s only 11, but he’s just a little twerp, and you make that little twerp behave,” Robertson continued. “There’s a lot of evil in the world. And you have got to protect kids, and you have got to do it any way you want to.”

    There’s no such thing as evil music. There are, however, evil evangelists. They all have TV stations, and they bilk their gullible followers of millions of dollars. And their “churches” don’t pay a dime of tax. Now that’s evil.

      aryan nation music is pretty evil

      • Larry Schmitt April 16th, 2015 at 5:52 pm

        I would say that’s not music at all.

        • tracey marie April 16th, 2015 at 5:55 pm

          I stand corrected

    Only a sick, evil, senile old piece of crap would go on TV and tell people it’s ok to beat their children while they are young enough. The 700 club Phhhhht……more like the evil crap club.

      You seem to know this creep pretty well.

      • Warman1138 April 16th, 2015 at 5:55 pm

        From the age of three to fifteen I was beaten every day for things I did, didn’t do and for what I was going to do. So yeah, I know this kind of creep really well.

          It’s too bad there’s not some kind of test you have to take before you’re allowed to have kids.

          • Warman1138 April 16th, 2015 at 5:59 pm

            I couldn’t agree more, the really sad thing is at that age you start to question yourself with ” Why was I even born? ”

          • Larry Schmitt April 16th, 2015 at 6:00 pm

            And to point out the obvious, no child should ever be put in that situation.

          • Warman1138 April 16th, 2015 at 6:05 pm

            Well, that was a long time ago and to wrap things up, Robertson should do the world a favor and jump off a cliff.

      Child abuse is biblical. Spare the rod and spoil the child.

      • Warman1138 April 16th, 2015 at 9:29 pm

        My dad tried to beat the bible into me…….didn’t work.

    Marie…why did you write a letter to this despicable idiot?
    You as the mother could have talked to your child’s pediatrician or a friend, relative or even the effin’ dog catcher before going to Señor Dinosaur.

    When in doubt reach out….to anyone other than this unholy roller.
