The exciting world of 700 Club and CBN founder Pat Robertson.
Pat Robertson is the founder of the television show The 700 Club (as well as many other things), and on this program he expenses advice regarding subjects such as finance, love, life, and so forth to people who do not know any better. Almost every episode has a segment where he tells people that if they give him money, through the "law of reciprocity" they'll get even more money back, sort of like a stock option with the Lord.
He's also made various predictions over the years, such as the end of the world, but has never been right. Aside from claiming that bad things happen to people (such as 9/11) because of they don't persecute homosexuals, inciting hatred between Christians and Muslims (see Islam; he promotes pretty much every myth about it), or because they had some voduo ritual 250 years ago (see Haiti), he often talks of great unilateral strategies, such as assassinating foreign leaders:
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war.
Pat Robertson is no stranger to controversy or stupidity.
