Televangelist Pat Robertson said Monday the stock market fluctuations that resulted in a 588-point drop were God’s punishment for the United States government funding abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
“That organization is an absolute monstrosity. To take your money and my money, which the government extorts from us every year in the form of taxation, is nothing short of tyranny,” said Robertson, the host of The 700 Club.
“You know that business about taxation without representation? We’re getting taxed, and the left is saying, ‘We’re going to give it to an organization that is repugnant to most Americans.’ And the president … he said in a previous negotiation about sequester, ‘You take this money away, I will shut the government down.’ Now that’s how strong he feels about funding the murder of unborn babies.”
