Ooops! Did I just say that out-loud on live tv?
I saw this link on another's blog and was so incredulous that I had to re-share. I can't believe this old coot is still on the air, much less with an audience that keeps him in expensive business suits.
"We minister to orphans all over the world, thousands of them, we love orphans, we love helping people..."
Sounds good right? Except for all the incredibly offensive words he uttered before that statement. The way he practically makes "blended family" sound like an epithet, the statement that adopting is basically "taking on somebody else's problems."
I especially loved watching his incredulous co-host biting her tongue (after all, you don't want to bite the hand that feeds you lest you find yourself without a job for disagreeing with the name on the door).
He ends by saying, "Alright, let's get to the next question, I'm in trouble."
Why yes, Mr. Robertson, you are. And if there is a God out there, I hope you are in more trouble than you can possibly imagine.
