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. Don’t keep pushing religion down anyone’s throat this is why its fading because no one wants to be rid told to obey a book or burn in the for eternity. you guys are what is making the world hate religion because you think its the only truth to life. you keep doing that shit and the entire world is going to hate religion so many already do because of wack jobs like this.

  2. We need to ignore ignorant idiots like this. Despite the airtime he gets, he and his religion are irrelevant. The indoctrination of children with lies and misinformation is child abuse. End of story.

  3. You are mistaken.
    Historians proved there has NEVER been a real Jesus. There is not a single record of this man in all of recorded history. Not a single one.
    The Catholic Church went out to prove his existence and quit after proving that 83% of what the Bible says about him POSITIVELY never happened.
    Christian historians claim there is proof of his existence.

    Which is likely because he is Horus, the God of an Egyptian religion 5000 years older. (Look up the connection. Both born of a virgin, crucified, resurrected, blah blah blah)
    And there is NOT A SINGLE piece of evidence that Horus existed either.

    And we were civilized back then.
    If there is one thing people do, it’s document everything. Letters, stories.

    Jesus exists SOLELY in the Bible.
    There has never been a single shred of evidence to support his existence, because the Bible was never meant to be taken as literal history.
    It wasn’t taught as literal history until recently. They’re stories meant to impart wisdom and morals.
    There wasn’t ACTUALLY a Noah’s ark.
    We know this because we know that there has not been a flood like that in the last 6000 years.
    There wasn’t really an Adam and Eve.
    There wasn’t really a jesus.

    To believe a virgin birthed a half God/half human man is nothing short of schizophrenia and schizophrenics probably shouldn’t be allowed to raise children.
