It’s Hard To Believe Some Folks Actually Still Believe The Tripe Below…

On today’s episode of The 700 Club, Pat Robertson warned us that Americans are about to get leprosy because that’s God’s way of punishing us for legalized abortion… even though God’s had nearly five decades to make good on that threat but hasn’t done a thing.

… We have launched a program of destroying the lives of young children, you know, during abortion and even after abortions, they would be killed. And the blatant disregard for human life has gotten to a crescendo. And I wonder if a Holy God is going to do something, and one way He does it is through plague. We have now learned that something is happening in Los Angeles — an emergence of leprosy. Leprosy, ladies and gentlemen, in the United States of America.

After abortion? I don’t remember having that option in the delivery room…

That wasn’t even a response to a question. That was a teaser for a longer segment on a possible leprosy outbreak in Los Angeles.

Abortion, of course, has nothing to do with the spread of the disease. One doctor even notes that leprosy is “very easy to treat with a cocktail of three antibiotics.”

That means leprosy is more accurately the fault of a health care system that discriminates against the poor, a problem made worse by perpetual pushback from Republican lawmakers. Not abortion. Not even close.

How otherwise rational and intelligent people can believe the snake oil Robertson (and others of his ilk) tries to sells his flock is beyond a logical persons ability to comprehend.
