A March 21st story in the Star Bulletin entitled “Broadcaster Robertson speaks highly of Aiona on ‘700 Club’ features this curious response from the Abercrombie camp:
Former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, who has never listed a religious preference, said he hopes also to draw from the “faith-based community.”
“We believe Neil Abercrombie will have a strong appeal to people of faith based on the common values they share,” said Abercrombie’s spokeswoman.
Really? Let’s take a closer look at some of those “common values.”
Feminism (Neil’s wife is a staunch feminist and author of Segregated Sisterhood.)
He (Robertson) has described feminism as a “socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.” The Washington Post, August 23, 1992.)
Abortion (Neil has voted in favor of late term partial-birth abortions)
Roberson: “It is my feeling that no crazed terrorists hiding out in mountain caves on the border of Afghanistan can threaten America. It is my firm conviction that Supreme Court decisions which have led to the wanton slaughter of 40 million unborn … [pose] graver dangers in the decades to come than the terrorists which our great nation has defeated in Afghanistan and Iraq.” (Letter to U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, May 2005)
Same Sex Marriage (Neil, an advocate for gay rights, voted against the Defense of Marriage Act)
Robertson stated that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and “possibly a meteor.” (Common Dreams Newswire, June 24, 1998)
Liberal College Professors (Both Neil and Nancie are left-leaning PhD’s)
Robertson went on to say that the 101 professors named in the book are only but a few of “thirty to forty thousand” left-wing professors in the United States, all of whom he accused of being “racists, murderers, sexual deviants and supporters of Al-Qaeda,” further labeling them as “termites that have worked into the woodwork of our academic society.” (On the March 21, 2006 broadcast of The 700 Club,)
Israel (Neil consistantly votes with the Palistinians, even terrorists like Hamas)
Pat Robertson suggested that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s recent stroke was the result of Sharon’s policy, which he claimed is “dividing God’s land.” Robertson said that Sharon’s illness was possibly retribution from God for his recent drive to give more land to the Palestinians. He also claimed former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin’s 1995 assassination may have occurred for the same reason. (January 5, 2006 Christian Broadcasting Network)
Considering that Abercrombie is being condemed as a murdering, sexual deviant termite, who supports Al-Qaeda and is married to a lesbian witch, making him personally responsible for hurricanes, earthquakes and possibly meteors; Neil should lower his expectations with, at least, the Robertson brand of church goers.
