CBN host Terry Meeuwsen must stop enabling Pat Robertson – updated*

The Atlantic Wire reports…

“The Christian Broadcasting Network, which has alternately apologized or defended Pat Robertson a lot lately, reportedly edited out a comment by the 700 Club co-host from the archived version of today’s broadcast.

The host, responding to a question from a viewer who was concerned about an HIV-positive church member, claimed on air that gay people in San Francisco use rigged rings to try and give people AIDS when they shake hands. In a later version of the episode posted to CBN’s website, however, those comments were nowhere to be found. 

Right Wing Watch has the video of the original comment, where Robertson apparently avoids co-host Terry Meeuwsen’s best efforts to change the subject away from his gay agenda conspiracy theories…

…Robertson, in a statement to the Atlantic Wire, defended his remarks, saying that security guards in San Francisco once told him that “AIDS-infested activists” were “deliberately trying to infect people like me by virtue of rings which would cut fingers and transfer blood.” Here’s his full statement:  

I was asked by a viewer whether she had a right to leave her church because she had been asked to transport an elderly man who had AIDS and about whose condition she had not been informed. My advice was that the risk of contagion in those circumstances was quite low and that she should continue to attend the church and not worry about the incident.
In my own experience, our organization sponsored a meeting years ago in San Francisco where trained security officers warned me about shaking hands because, in those days, certain AIDS-infected activists were deliberately trying to infect people like me by virtue of rings which would cut fingers and transfer blood.   I regret that my remarks had been misunderstood, but this often happens because people do not listen to the context of remarks which are being said. In no wise were my remarks meant as an indictment of the homosexual community or, for that fact, to those infected with this dreadful disease.”

  1. Sorry for the totally out of place Hogan’s Heroes reference on such a serious topic. Been watching to many old TV shows lately.

  2. “Did Petreaus resign just because of an affair? Was there more to it then that? Do people resign from public office because of that?”

    Yeah, I’d say there’s more to it than that. But also, officers are punished for adultery for several reasons, not the least of which is the danger of women getting close to someone for espionage reasons.

    Don’t you remember how girls used to pretend to like Colonel Clink and keep him occupied while Hogan and his gang stole info? Oldest trick in the book.

    But – given how people here like conspiracies…..yeah, I’d say there’s a lot behind the Petraeus thing.

    There are many pastors who are still preaching after having affairs.

    btw Pat’s only on there cos he’s rich. If he wasn’t he’d just be another silly old fool. He’s more important cos he’s a rich silly old fool.

  4. I don’t think he said anything wrong at all. He wasn’t saying the man wasn’t bad or that it was ALL his fault – he’s really just saying what just about everyone else is saying.

    For feminists to tie that into abortion just shows how desperate they are. Crazy.

    The day’s coming when the story will be about a female heroic figure and a younger handsome male, or two gays.

    I think Pat’s saying that people are human and these things happen.

    And as for the nonsense about how men are only accusing the woman ad focussing on her, women all over American are interested in Broadwll and Kelly. If Oprah were still on, she’d be interviewing them. People love this kind of stuff.
