Robertson: Murderous Gays With Special AIDS Rings Intentionally Cutting People To Infect Them

Octogenarian televangelist and multi-millionaire Pat Robertson has cooked up what might possibly become one of his most vile anti-gay attacks yet. On his “700 Club” show today, Robertson claimed that gay people in San Francisco have special rings infected with HIV that they use to cut unsuspecting people to intentionally infect them. A web search for this phenomenon found nothing, nor did Robertson offer any proof.

“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson told his co-host, Terry Meeuwsen. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.”

UPDATE: Robertson Digs In: ‘AIDS-Infected Activists Were Deliberately Trying To Infect People Like Me’

Robertson and Meeuwsen were discussing the concerns of a viewer who had transported an elderly man with HIV/AIDS as part of her service to her church, and she was angry because the church had not disclosed his HIV status.

“There are laws now,” Robertson lamented, “I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody you had a heart attack, you can tell them they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody you’ve got AIDS,” he continued.”

And of course, in his usual flippant manner, Robertson also told his co-host, “What to say if you’re driving an elderly man whose got AIDS? Don’t have sex with them. Unless there’s a cut or some bodily fluid transmission, I think you’re not going to catch it.”

Robertson’s comments were so vile even the network he owns would no post them on their website. Right Wing Watch reports “one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson’s comments after they aired.”

Editor’s note (9:20 PM EDT): Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network forced YouTube to remove the video that Right Wing Watch had posted, in a clear violation of Right Wing Watch’s right to report news and the fair-use policy. Robertson t our knowledge has never before directly emailed publishers to respond to allegations, nor, again to our knowledge, has he forced the removal of videos from YouTube. Clearly, this is a major problem for CBN and Robertson but a Google search today found 42 reports related to Robertson’s comments. Now, 494:

I've heard this urban myth, and it was years and years ago, (early 90s I think.) but latter part is just pure ignorance. Same fool people who believe you can get HIV by drinking from a shared water glass.

Ignorance is bliss. And for the people who watch this charlatan and believe in him, willful ignorance is even more blissful.

No wonder "those" type of christians are so happy in a fake sort of way! They have such a small, rich choir to speak to.. All their money and riches will never get them into heaven, as they think.

Seek professional mental help Pat.

Considering the rise in hate crimes, the assaults against gay people, Pat Robertson might want to consider his words. He's pushing violence against gay citizens when he spews this kind of garbage over the air. Too many ignorant people filled with hate will be quick to believe him.

Yes, us with HIV want to infect people /sarcasm

Sorry, but no. While there ARE vitriolic people out there who would never discuss (or even lie about) their HIV status with their sexual partner, what he is stating is so falsified that it's unreal.

Myself, I have always disclosed my HIV status because it's not just MY life when I am with a sexual partner (although that doesn't happen anymore because I've been in a relationship for almost 4 years now).

So yeah, Pat…can you just….wither away now and stop spewing the hate across the airwaves? How about actually presenting FACTS before flapping those old man lips around, a'ight?

The Rev. Dr. Fossil F**k rides again!

Hey Pat, I have some extra wood in my backyard and I think I can put together a cross by Christmas. Please meet me in the Capitol Rotunda for a Christmas tree decorating party.
