Famed Republican televangelist Pat Robertson recently told a grieving mum that god allowed her son to die because he may be the next Hitler.
A woman wrote into the show “700 Club” seeking comforting words for her friend who’s mourning the loss of her 3-year-old child. She admit she cannot believe in a God who could watch the child die.
“I told her that I don’t know why her child died, but God sees the whole picture, we see only in part. What can I say,” she said.
However, Mr Robertson took the chance to say that god probably saved the world from the second coming of Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin.
“As far as God’s concerned, He knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease,” he said.
“God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.”
Mr Robertson also made headlines this year after stating that Christian schools who ban interracial dating should remain tax exempt stating that it was “chilling” to see the Internal Revenue Service punish Bob Jones University for their ban.
