Pat Robertson advised a Christian grandmother to do anything she can to prevent her grandchild from being raised as an atheist.

During the Monday edition of his 700 Club program on Disney-owned ABC Family, the TV preacher took a question from a woman named Elizabeth who asked for advice about what she can do to undermine the atheist parents of her six-year-old grandson.

“Pat, I am very concerned because this past weekend my 6-year-old grandson said his dad told him God and Jesus were not real and were just made up to scare people about dying,” Elizabeth wrote. “I had to explain the truth to him but he won’t believe me. I’m worried for my grandson’s soul.”

Apparently, the “truth,” according to Elizabeth, is that God and Jesus are real and she openly admitted to trying to indoctrinate her grandson behind his parents’ backs, even though there is zero actual evidence to prove the existence of God, and historians only somewhat agree that Jesus was a real person minus the divinity.

Nevertheless, Elizabeth sought advice from Robertson, who suggested that she hijack her grandson’s religious education from his parents in any way she can because atheists shouldn’t be allowed to teach their children their non-religious beliefs.

“You should be,” Robertson said of Elizabeth’s fear about her grandchild’s soul.

“If there’s any way you can get that child away from that… His father telling him that. I don’t know, but if there’s any way you can get him enrolled in a Christian school or get him into some, you know, they have daily vacation Bible school and things. There’s all kinds of things you could do to kind of get him into some positive influences.”

So, Robertson told this woman to forcibly enroll her grandson into Bible school or a Christian school without permission from his parents. Yeah, that’s not going to cause a rift in the family at all.

This is just the latest attack against atheists by Robertson over the years. Not too long ago, he suggested that non-religious children should be beaten until they respect Christianity. At least he didn’t make that suggestion this time around, but he still advocated for systematic brainwashing.

Robertson and his co-host then suggested that the woman purchase Superbook, which is a Bible-based series of animated stories produced and sold by Robertson’s own Christian Broadcasting Network. Presumably, Robertson is suggesting that Elizabeth force her grandson to watch it in an effort to indoctrinate him into Christianity against the will of the boy and his parents.

Here’s the video via YouTube.

Basically, Robertson is saying that atheists are unfit to raise their own children which is ironic because conservatives are always playing the persecution card to claim that the government is telling them how to raise their own kids. But it appears that conservative Christians are just fine with telling parents how to raise their children as long as the parents are non-Christians, which once again exposes the conservative effort to turn America into a theocracy governed entirely by the Bible instead of the Constitution that protects the religious liberty of every citizen, even the religious liberty of six-year-old atheists and their parents.

  1. It is time that such assertive ones as mr Robertson come up with real proof that their alleged god exists. And the only proof acceptable would be the god himself in his own figure, and you also have to prove that it is your god and not one of the thousands og other gods people believe in. And do not use any bible or other "holy" book, because they do not hold as evidence. Then come on mr Robertson, go out and prove that your god exists! If you can't, then you have nothing but claims and fantasies. Nothing!

  2. As a child I remember every morning having bible reading, prayer and saluting the flag…I would say at that time America was a Chrisrian Nation, a good majority,,,,,from the time we started kicking God out of everything this Nation has become Godless and just look around at how we have spiritually, morally declined,,,man has become pagan, he has ignored a Higher Power and we are suffering for it,,,,,we see it in every facet of our daily lives,,,,our children and teens are affected, our families are affected, evil pervades this country,,,,,,,,,greed is rampant, man has lost his sense of direction and let his inner spirit waste away,,,,,,,I pray for Divine intervention for bringing mankind back to God.Giest

    • Why doest Got stop kids from getting raped in his house of worship . Not just catholic boys . Kids from every denomination. Do those kids pray to jesus to make it stop ? Why does he make changes in every ones lives and we pray for him to keep our families safe , to get that new job , etc etc but he let’s kids get systematically raped in his house . It’s not just Catholics either its every denomination. Last time I checked it’s not atheist raping children its christians

    • White man has always mostly been pagans, all of those Christian holidays you celebrate, including Christmas & decorating with a Christmas tree are all rooted snd stolen from the pagans, do your research if you can lift your face out of your bible hon, your sky wizard is a fairytail.

  3. How is it possible to tell children to believe in something which does not exist. Why does such a loving, controlling, knowing all entity allow thousands of people and their children around world die of hunger.
    Why do our loved ones die in car & plane crashes and of serious illness.
    Why do the faithful put thousands into the collection plate every week but we still have thousands in poverty
