Pat Robertson on the Cobb County sticker case (700 Club, December 15th):
ROBERTSON: You know, what we have got to recognize just there in this case is that the evolutionists worship atheism. I mean, that’s their religion. And evolution becomes their religion. It is a matter of religion. So this is an establishment of religion contrary to the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. And the fact that somebody comes along and says, “We are not sure that it’s accurate, it’s a theory and not a fact” — how can you say it’s a fact? You are talking about 10 to 15 billion years ago. Who was there?
TERRY MEEUWSEN (co-host): Scientifically, you would think that the scientific community would rise to the occasion and say, “Absolutely, let’s keep an open mind. Let’s continue to discover and search.”
ROBERTSON: Yeah, well, a lot of scientists are. More and more are. They are saying there are just too many things that can’t be explained by evolution. But, I mean, these fanatics, I mean, it is a religion, it is a cult. It is cultish religion, and whenever you start talking about the origins of life, you now get into religious matter, and theirs is just as much religion. The only difference is that even questioning, questioning that — the ACLU says even if you question our religion, you are guilty of violating the First Amendment. I mean, give me a break.
I expect he will have something interesting to say about the Dover ruling. Stay tuned.
