Pat Robertson: Alabama 'has gone too far' with 'extreme' abortion law


Pat Robertson: Alabama 'has gone too far' with 'extreme' abortion law

Televangelist Pat Robertson, who is opposed to abortion, criticized an anti-abortion bill passed by the Alabama legislature Tuesday as "extreme."

"I think Alabama has gone too far," he said during a Wednesday appearance on "The 700 Club", referencing the bill's 99-year maximum sentence for doctors who perform abortions and the fact that it does not provide exceptions for rape or incest cases.

He added that he does not think the bill would be upheld by the Supreme Court.

"It's an extreme law, and they want to challenge Roe vs. Wade, but my humble view is that this is not the case we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this one will lose," he said.

"The Alabama case, God bless them, they're trying to do something, but I don't think that's the case that I'd want to bring to the Supreme Court," he later reiterated.

1. A 49 year maximum sentence would have been plenty, right Pat?

Loathesome man.

4. Have evangelicals

been designated as a hate group yet? If not, it's time.

6. Is that going to do anything though?

And how would you go about classifying the millions of people in this country that identify themselves as Christians as hatemongerers?

7. Not all christians

believe the garbage vomited from the mouths of fundies. I'm no fan of religion, but I generally don't have issues with people who practice it because they feel it helps them in some way. Trust me, you can spot hateful fundies a mile away. We know who they are. 700 club types, the quiverful psychos, homeschoolers (yes, I know not everyone who homeschools is a fundy), liberty university nutcases, etc.

8. That's what I was wondering is how do you separate the hate mongerers?

If they're wearing MAGA hats and spouting Fox News nonsense then it's pretty obvious. But otherwise that would be quite the impossible task there.

10. I know.

But maybe start with their churches. Revoke their tax free status, because right now, their hate is being subsidized.

5. Never, not once in a million years would I ever agree with Pat Robertson on anything...

But he's right. They've gone too far.

11. Too much too fast, because he is afraid the SC will overturn it?
