Pat Robertson, New York Magazine, August 18, 1986:
"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great
builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because
Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by
love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into
(our) institutions (today) are primarily termites. They are into
destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether
it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have....
The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought
to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation."
Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991:
"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and
the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the
other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit
of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions
but I don't have to be nice to them."
Pat Robertson, 1993 interview with Molly Ivins:
"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal
America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no
different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over
again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based
media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians.
Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry
directed toward any group in America today. More terrible
than anything suffered by any minority in history."
Pat Robertson, in 3-page letter to voters of Iowa (Nov. '93 elections),
describing a proposed equal rights amendment to the state constitution:
"It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages
women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft,
destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
Pat Robertson, of widespread practice of homosexuality in Orlando, Florida:
"It will bring about terrorist bombs, it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and
possibly a meteor."
(AP, Seattle Times 6/10/98, on file)
"The Christian Coalition will be the most powerful political force
in America by the end of this decade."
Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 12/3/97:
"NOW is saying that in order to be a woman, you've
got to be a lesbian."
Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 4/9/91, of Planned Parenthood:
"It is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery,
every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism-everything
that the Bible condemns."
Pat Robertson, The New World Order, p.227:
"How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy money changers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?"
Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, 1/21/93:
"Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals--the two things seem to go together."
Pat Robertson, Washington Post, June 27,1986:
"I am bound by the laws of the United States and all 50 states...I am not bound by any case or any court to which I myself am not a party...I don't think the Congress of the United States is subservient to the courts...They can ignore a Supreme Court ruling if they so choose."
Pat Robertson, on Planned Parenthood, The 700 Club, 4/9/91
"It is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism-everything that the Bible condemns."
Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, Dec. 30, 1981
"The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by the Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian people and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society. And that's what's been happening."
Jerry Falwell, "The 700 Club," 9/13/2001 (2 days after terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center):
'And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way - all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."'
(To which Pat Robertson responded, "Well, I totally concur, and the problem is we have adopted that agenda at the highest levels of our government. And so we're responsible as a free society for what the top people do. And, the top people, of course, is the court system.")
David Postman, on the first American Heritage Party convention in Wenatchee, WA:
...Robert Andrews told an overflowing seminar that computers could soon be the
end of America as we know it.
Andrews, a pastor, read to the group from mainstream newspapers and magazines
about the impending chaos that could be caused if computers cannot account
for the year 2000 -- a glitch that could affect everything from traffic signals
to airline travel.
Andrews said it could lead to the demise of centralized government, cities being
run by violent gangs, lack of drinkable water, a collapsed banking system and no
He's not sure those things will happen, but says the prospect is a warning from
God to real to ignore.
"It gives us an incredible opportunity," Andrews said.
If government collapses, he said, it will force America to adopt a new government
more in line with what the Founding Fathers envisioned. The government will come
from the rural counties, which he says may be the highest level of government still
able to operate.
That's why Andrews put his Bothell house up for sale and moved recently to a farm
in Colville, Stevens County.
"I am moving to Colville for one reason and one reason only," Andrews said.
"I want to survive the year 2000 and be ready to govern."

Directive to Mormon Ward teachers:
"When the leaders speak, the thinking has been done."
Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue, The News-Sentinel, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 8-16-93:
"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."
