Let’s share some of the lovely things ol’ Pat has said over the years.
"Many of those people involved in Adolf Hitler were Satanists. Many were homosexuals. The two things seem to go together."
On assassinating Hugo Chavez
"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."
On the tornadoes that ravaged the Midwest in 2012
"If enough people were praying, (God) would’ve intervened. You could pray. Jesus stilled the storm. You can still storms."
On the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake
"They were under the heel of the French, you know, Napoleon the third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, ‘We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.’ True story.
And so the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another."
On a man with an Alzheimer’s-stricken wife
"I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but to make sure she has custodial care and somebody (is) looking after her."
Asked what about the “Till death do us part” part of the marriage vow, he said Alzheimer’s is "a kind of death.
I TOTALLY agree with him on that last one. I mean, obviously if you’ve been married 65 years and your wife develops dementia, the most Christian thing to do would be divorce her and kick her demented self to the curb. VERY Christlike.
