Pat Robertson consoles grieving mother: ‘Your dead child could have been the next Hitler’

Pat Robertson came up with a unique approach to consoling a mother whose 3 year-old child passed away tragically.

On another wonderful and inspiring edition of the 700 Club today, Pat Robertson came up with a unique approach to consoling a mother whose 3 year-old child passed away tragically.

A viewer asked for some advice on how she should respond to a co-worker’s question of “Why did God allow my baby to die?” Robertson suggested that it’s possible that the coworker’s three-year-old child died as a result of human error at the hospital: “Are you going to blame that on God? That’s not God, that’s people who are making mistakes.”

But then again, the child could have turned out to be the next Hitler or Stalin. Who knows?

“As far as God’s concerned, he knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease,” Robertson said. “God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.”

    Agreed. How anyone watches, or sends money to this old ass, is beyond reason.

    If being with god after you die is so great why doesn’t this jack ass kill himself?

    Some have told me that god is keeping him alive to spread the good word. I told him “When did god or jesus spread hate? That sounds more like the devil is keeping him alive to trick good people into hating.” said person walked away with out a come back.

    So . . . why did God not end the life of all those serial killers, Stalin and Hitler in their infancy? And ditto with all those adults who die of “hideous diseases” ? Religion, it seems is not about finding out the facts of a matter but making people feel better. In this he fails.

    His quote will come in handy at the next pro-life march, I think, yes? “I know you just aborted, but your child might have been the next Hitler!” probably won’t go over as well as the Reverend thinks…

    Really? People make mistakes? That stands out as much as the Hitler statement. Why is it that when a child is ill then recovers it was god and prayer that did it? But if the kid dies it was human error? The true mistake here is that Pat Robertson’s mother did not abort him.

    I have no respect for this man. OMG how in the world could he say such a thing. I heard about this guy on Howard Stern didn’t think he was for real. My blessing and love for that poor family. RIP child and God Bless.

    The Egg
    By: Andy Weir

    You were on your way home when you died.
    It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.
    And that’s when you met me.
    “What… what happened?” You asked. “Where am I?”
    “You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. No point in mincing words.
    “There was a… a truck and it was skidding…”
    “Yup,” I said.
    “I… I died?”
    “Yup. But don’t feel bad about it. Everyone dies,” I said.
    You looked around. There was nothingness. Just you and me. “What is this place?” You asked. “Is this the afterlife?”
    “More or less,” I said.
    “Are you god?” You asked.
    “Yup,” I replied. “I’m God.”
    “My kids… my wife,” you said.
    “What about them?”
    “Will they be all right?”
    “That’s what I like to see,” I said. “You just died and your main concern is for your family. That’s good stuff right there.”
    You looked at me with fascination. To you, I didn’t look like God. I just looked like some man. Or possibly a woman. Some vague authority figure, maybe. More of a grammar school teacher than the almighty.
    “Don’t worry,” I said. “They’ll be fine. Your kids will remember you as perfect in every way. They didn’t have time to grow contempt for you. Your wife will cry on the outside, but will be secretly relieved. To be fair, your marriage was falling apart. If it’s any consolation, she’ll feel very guilty for feeling relieved.”
    “Oh,” you said. “So what happens now? Do I go to heaven or hell or something?”
    “Neither,” I said. “You’ll be reincarnated.”
    “Ah,” you said. “So the Hindus were right,”
    “All religions are right in their own way,” I said. “Walk with me.”
    You followed along as we strode through the void. “Where are we going?”
    “Nowhere in particular,” I said. “It’s just nice to walk while we talk.”
    “So what’s the point, then?” You asked. “When I get reborn, I’ll just be a blank slate, right? A baby. So all my experiences and everything I did in this life won’t matter.”
    “Not so!” I said. “You have within you all the knowledge and experiences of all your past lives. You just don’t remember them right now.”
    I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “Your soul is more magnificent, beautiful, and gigantic than you can possibly imagine. A human mind can only contain a tiny fraction of what you are. It’s like sticking your finger in a glass of water to see if it’s hot or cold. You put a tiny part of yourself into the vessel, and when you bring it back out, you’ve gained all the experiences it had.
    “You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. If we hung out here for long enough, you’d start remembering everything. But there’s no point to doing that between each life.”
    “How many times have I been reincarnated, then?”
    “Oh lots. Lots and lots. An in to lots of different lives.” I said. “This time around, you’ll be a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.”
    “Wait, what?” You stammered. “You’re sending me back in time?”
    “Well, I guess technically. Time, as you know it, only exists in your universe. Things are different where I come from.”
    “Where you come from?” You said.
    “Oh sure,” I explained “I come from somewhere. Somewhere else. And there are others like me. I know you’ll want to know what it’s like there, but honestly you wouldn’t understand.”
    “Oh,” you said, a little let down. “But wait. If I get reincarnated to other places in time, I could have interacted with myself at some point.”
    “Sure. Happens all the time. And with both lives only aware of their own lifespan you don’t even know it’s happening.”
    “So what’s the point of it all?”
    “Seriously?” I asked. “Seriously? You’re asking me for the meaning of life? Isn’t that a little stereotypical?”
    “Well it’s a reasonable question,” you persisted.
    I looked you in the eye. “The meaning of life, the reason I made this whole universe, is for you to mature.”
    “You mean mankind? You want us to mature?”
    “No, just you. I made this whole universe for you. With each new life you grow and mature and become a larger and greater intellect.”
    “Just me? What about everyone else?”
    “There is no one else,” I said. “In this universe, there’s just you and me.”
    You stared blankly at me. “But all the people on earth…”
    “All you. Different incarnations of you.”
    “Wait. I’m everyone!?”
    “Now you’re getting it,” I said, with a congratulatory slap on the back.
    “I’m every human being who ever lived?”
    “Or who will ever live, yes.”
    “I’m Abraham Lincoln?”
    “And you’re John Wilkes Booth, too,” I added.
    “I’m Hitler?” You said, appalled.
    “And you’re the millions he killed.”
    “I’m Jesus?”
    “And you’re everyone who followed him.”
    You fell silent.
    “Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”
    You thought for a long time.
    “Why?” You asked me. “Why do all this?”
    “Because someday, you will become like me. Because that’s what you are. You’re one of my kind. You’re my child.”
    “Whoa,” you said, incredulous. “You mean I’m a god?”
    “No. Not yet. You’re a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born.”
    “So the whole universe,” you said, “it’s just…”
    “An egg.” I answered. “Now it’s time for you to move on to your next life.”
    And I sent you on your way

    He doesn’t stop people because he does not exist. And if he does, he is a sadistic, abusive, selfish, being or he just took a very long vacation.

    That baby could have grown up to be the next Pat Robertson–and how did he slip through?

    He saw Hitler, he saw Stalin. he saw all the rapists and killers and perverts etc being born but he didn’t stop them, did he? As mentioned here before, when a doctor operates and the patient dies, the doctor made a mistake. When a doctor operates and the patient lives, it’s because god allowed it!! The same goes for curing disease, winning a football game, anything!!

    I’ve said it before. I don’t believe he shouldn’t have said what he said. But how come I don’t hear all you people saying anything or being outraged about all the babies being aborted while still in the mother’s womb? It’s the sensitivity used while talking about the death of a baby that’s the issue here right? But how come no one says anything about all the babies being killed every day? And some doctors even say that it should be ok by law to kill update me up to 30 days after its born? Sounds pretty hypocritical to me

    If I would ask you where do babies come from would you answer God?. Where do dead babies go? You would probably answer God. What is the problem?
