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.

    • He’s a lunatic. He thinks that just because a person doesn’t belong in Jesus Christ that he’s going to grow up to be a horrible person. I used to be told that when I was a boy. I never attended a Christian church, nor did I ever read the Bible. But I turned out to be a good adult, with decent morals, all without believing in God or accepting Jesus Christ as my lord and saviour.

  1. Money money money . The people who are suffering from the illness of blind faith in a revolting religion are also brainwashed into believing the more money they give to their religious teachers the better life they will have in their imaginary heaven. If this lunatic was teaching the nonsense that would not be allowed in any place that debates the truth of reality. Because he brings in so much money and is generous with his followers money to the right corrupt government and community leaders he can say anything he wants. He might even believe it. As long as the money is flowing in he will always be supported and commended as “A MAN OF GOD “ People save America from these people.

  2. Gods and all forms of the supernatural were created in the imaginations of primitive ignorant men who had no other explanations for natural events happening around them. As our scientific knowledge became more comprehensive our reliance on belief in the supernatural should have decreased correspondingly but certain men realised that through religion comes control and power over the ignorant, this is this link which needs to be severed. By all means tell children of the history of religion and the wars and hatred it has initiated and leave any choice of beliefs until they have passed into adulthood.
