Pat Robertson to viewer: ‘Quit your job so you don’t get infected by Buddhist co-workers’

On his CBN show the 700 Club this Monday, Robertson made sure to warn his viewers to steer clear of Buddhists because the Eastern religion is like a “disease” that could get Christians “infected.”

Pat Robertson is back with yet another gift. Because if you haven’t noticed yet, this guy is the gift that keeps on giving.

On his CBN show the 700 Club this Monday, Robertson made sure to warn his viewers to steer clear of Buddhists because the Eastern religion is like a disease that could get Christians “infected.”

“I work in an environment where all of my coworkers are Buddhists,” a viewer named Tina wrote in an email to Robertson. “They talk about Buddhism all day long and try to preach to me. It didn’t matter much to me before, but since I recommitted myself to Jesus a year ago, it has started to bother me a lot.”

Robertson responded, saying “healthy” people might have enough immunity to stand up to a Buddhist “mild contagion.”

“But if you put yourself in the middle of a hospital ward where everybody has the disease except you, sooner or later, you will be infected by it,” he warned. “If you’re in the middle of hundreds and hundreds of people who believe that way, you’ve got an uphill fight.”

“I think your best thing at that point is to withdraw with dignity,” Robertson added. “Get out of that environment because they’re going to get to you before you get to them.”

    I would offer the same advice to Buddhists who must work in a Christian environment. Get out before they get to you.

    If there’s anything virulent here,it’s Robertson and his ilk.

    If she’s dumb enough to listen to that, I hope she has a really hard time finding a new job.

    See, that’s really funny from a Christian perspective, because Christians are taught to spread the Good News, not withdraw from situations where the opportunity to evangelize presents itself. That’s in the Bible. Mr. Robertson has got it (not surprisingly) completely backwards.

    It’s just really time for religion to go away. All it does is teach intolerance and hatred.

    She seems to think it’s OK to preach her religion, but is offended when they reply with theirs. Bet me she didn’t start this when she recommitted. Keep your religious views out of the workplace.

    So it’s ok for ‘Tina’ to minister to others, to convince them that she’s right, and christianity is the way, but if they try to talk to her about buddhism, she should run away.
    So let’s not learn anything about another religion, just in case you might come to an understanding of it. Or worse, you might realize your religion is just as bat$hit crazy as the others. Can’t have that, now can we?

    Although I’m an atheist myself, I would have to disagree. I would say most theists in the world are totally fine, decent people. It’s just the crazy fundamentalists who spread hate and intolerance. And at that point, religion isn’t even really the issue. Those people are just being assholes. Religions can totally exist and coexist with one another. People just have to stop being dicks about it.
