"God Hates F*gs", huh? I really hope that whatever manifestation of God really exists; hates bigots, bullies and grandstanding jackasses way more.
"God hates America, and those calamities last Tuesday [September 11, 2001] are none other than the wrath of God, smiting f*g America... That wasn't any accident. That wasn't any coincidence. There's only America to blame for those tragedies."
"The Lord sent a world-class whopper of a massacre to Virginia Tech, killing thirty-three, drawing headlines like 'Shocked!', 'Horrified!', 'The worst massacre in US history!'. Well, we wish you were thirty-three thousand killed, but we are thankful to our Father for thirty-three."

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians."

They said 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.' True story. And so the devil said, 'Ok it’s a deal.' And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another."
-- Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 13, 2010, discussing the 12 Jan 2010 7.0 earthquake in Haiti

I share NAMI's (National Alliance on Mental Health) view on his statements:
