Favorite Robertson Quotes

1. "Over and over these organizations tell America that family, above all, is what Christianity is about. Devotion to one's family is, indeed, a wonderful thing. Yet it is hardly something to brag about. For all except the most pathologically self-absorbed, love for one's parents, spouse, and children comes naturally. Jesus did not make it his business to affirm these ties; he didn't have to. Jews feel them, Buddhists feel them, Confucians and Zoroastrians and atheists feel them. Christianity is not about reinforcing such natural bonds and instinctive sentiments. Rather, Christianity is about challenging them and helping us to see all of humankind as our family. It seems clear that if Jesus had wanted to affirm the "traditional family" in the way that Pat Robertson claims, he would not have lived the way he did."

2. "The bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face. . . . What they abominate about ‘the West,' to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
3. "Now is as good a time as ever to revisit the history of the Crusades, or the sorry history of partition in Kashmir, or the woes of the Chechens and Kosovars. But the bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face, and there's no point in any euphemism about it. What they abominate about 'the West,' to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson, and exhibits about the same intellectual content."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
4. "Rev. Pat Robertson says that if more states legalize gay marriage, God will destroy America. He did say that afterwards, gays will come in and do a beautiful renovation."
Author: Conan O'Brien
5. "I like the relaxed way in which the Japanese approach religion. I think of myself as basically a moral person, but I'm definitely not religious, and I'm very tired of the preachiness and obsession with other people's behavior characteristic of many religious people in the United States. As far as I could tell, there's nothing preachy about Buddhism. I was in a lot of temples, and I still don't know what Buddhists believe, except that at one point Kunio said 'If you do bad things, you will be reborn as an ox.'This makes as much sense to me as anything I ever heard from, for example, the Reverend Pat Robertson."
Author: Dave Barry
6. "Massignon a combattu infatigablement en faveur de la civilisation musulmane et, comme en témoignent de nombreux essais et lettres écrits après 1948, pour soutenir les réfugiés palestiniens, pour défendre les droits des Arabes musulmans et chrétiens de Palestine contre le sionisme, contre ce qu'il appelé, de manière caustique, "le colonialisme bourgeois" des Israéliens" (...) Pourtant, Massignon place implicitement l'Orient islamique dans une période ancienne pour l'essentiel, et l'Occident dans la modernité. Comme Robertson Smith, il considère que l'Oriental n'est pas un homme moderne, mais un Sémite (...)"
Author: Edward W. Said
7. "There was an exhibition in Munich in 1937, 'Degenerate Art,' which included work by Klee, Kandinsky, Beckmann and many others. The work was called 'sick' and put in the trash heap. The sentiments expressed toward contemporary art by Jesse Helms, Pat Robertson and Mayor Giuliani recall the language used by the Nazis."
Author: Hans Haacke
8. "A standing prick hath no conscience. And if that standing prick is attached to Bruce Robertson then it hath less than no conscience. You can't afford a conscience in this life, that has become a luxury for the rich and a social ball and chain for the rest of us. Even if I wanted one, which I certainly do not, I wouldn't have the faintest idea as how to go about getting one."
Author: Irvine Welsh
9. "Portanto - disse a Srta. Tilney -, a senhorita crê que os historiadores não são felizes ao deixar sua imaginação voar. Eles demonstram possuí-la, mas não conseguem despertar o interesse. Eu gosto de História, e não me importo de aceitar o que é falso junto com o que é verdadeiro. Para descrever os fatos principais, eles buscam informações em registros e em outros livros que são tão confiáveis, creio eu, quanto qualquer coisa que não se passe diante de nossos próprios olhos. E quanto aos pequenos adornos aos quais se refere, são apenas adornos, e gosto deles como tal. Se um discurso for bem escrito, eu o lerei com prazer, não importa quem seja o autor. E leio com mais prazer ainda se tiverem sido produzidos pelo Sr. Hume e pelo Sr. Robertson do que se fossem as palavras genuínas de Caractacus, Júlio Agrícola ou ALfredo, o Grande."
Author: Jane Austen
10. "Robertsons love Sundays! The most important thing we do is gather together with our church family for worship, teaching, and fellowship. After church, we like to have a nice lunch of roast, vegetables, and definitely rolls or biscuits. And I love catching a nap when I can."
Author: Kay Robertson
11. "She's a monster." Ms. RobertsonClarice, small laugh: "But she's out monster."
Author: Kiersten White
12. "If there is a true measure of a person's soul, if there is a single gauge of real divinity, of how beautifully a fellow human honors this life, has genuine spiritual fire and is full of honest love and compassion, it has to be right there, in the eyes.The Dalai Lama's eyes sparkle and dance with laughter and unbridled love. The Pope's eyes are dark and glazed, bleak as obsidian marbles. Pat Robertson's eyes are rheumy and hollow, like tiny potholes of old wax. Goldman Sachs cretins, well, they don't use their own eyes at all; they just steal someone else's."
Author: Mark Morford
13. "Kay found six and a half acres of land just off the Ouachita River at the mouth of Cypress Creek outside of West Monroe, Louisiana. It was at the end of a dirt road in one of the most heavily forested areas on the river. The classified advertisement in the newspaper described it as a "Sportsman's Paraside." When we drove out to see the land, I knew it was perfect as soon as we crested the hill that leads down to the house where we still live today. The place was absolutely perfect. The real estate lady sensed my excitement and told me, "Now, Mr. Robertson, I'm required by law to inform you that this home sits in a floodplain.""Perfect," I told her. "I wouldn't want it if it didn't."
Author: Phil Robertson
14. "A Note From JaseI'm the second son of Phil and Kay Robertson. Si (Phil's youngest brother) named me on the riverbank. Si went to the river to tell Phil that Kay was having a baby. I've always heard that Phil's response was something to the effect of, "What do you want me to do about it?" Si asked him, "What do you want to name him?" Phil replied, "Name him after you." So I was given the name Jason Silas Robertson. Maybe that's why Si and I love to argue so much. My dad called me "Jase" about half the time, and somewhere through the years the name stuck."
Author: Phil Robertson
15. "Once again, Pat Robertson leaves us speechless with his insensitivity and arrogance."
Author: Ralph G. Neas
16. "Si, the speed limit sign said 35. Your Goin' 55." -Sadie Robertson"Oh, that's just a suggestion."
Author: Si Robertson
17. "In the winter, things are dead and dull, but then there is an explosion of life. That's what He promises people who believe in His Son. That's what all the Robertsons are banking on."
Author: Si Robertson
18. "We are the rags to riches story, okay, the Robertson's are. Okay? We had very humble beginnings. Everybody's trying to figure out what, what's behind it, and all the Robertsons say, 'Hey, it's divine intervention.' Me personally, okay, God's gonna take 'Duck Dynasty' where he wants it to go, okay, and to the people that he wants it to go to."
Author: Si Robertson
19. "His failure hurt too badly for that. It was a bad equation. Best erase it and try a new one.If adults could put aside their obsessions with such firmness, the world would undoubtedly be a better place. Robertson Davies does not say that in his Deptford Trilogy ... but he strongly hints at it."
Author: Stephen King
20. "Mr. Robertson Davies has also suggested in his Deptford Trilogy that the same great truism which applies to writing, painting, picking horses at the track, and telling lies in a sincerely believable way, also applies to magic: some people got the knack, and some people don't. Hilly didn't."
Author: Stephen King
