Robertson advocates stoning for UFO enthusiasts
Great Barrington, MA -- In a recent pronouncement, television evangelist
and head of the Christian Coalition, Pat Robertson, advocated death by
stoning for UFO enthusiasts.
Freedom Writer magazine, in its July/August issue, mailed today,
disclosed Robertson's statement. Freedom Writer is published by the
Institute for First Amendment Studies, a group that monitors the right.
Robertson used the news of the July 4th Mars landing to promote his
extreme beliefs. A segment on the July 8, 1997 broadcast of The 700 Club
featured news of the Mars Pathfinder mission. Employing the historical
event as a starting point, the program delved into the possibility of
the existence of UFOs and space aliens.
While Robertson viewed the space program with suspicion, on a more
serious note, he launched into a diatribe against those who entertain
the existence of space aliens and UFOs. He said, in a rambling
discourse, that if such things exist, they are simply demons trying to
lead people away from Christ. According to Robertson, the threat is so
serious that people who believe in space aliens should be put to death
by stoning -- according to "God's word."
"The Bible says the Earth belongs to man, but the heavens belong to the
Lord," Robertson said.
"He has given us the Earth. He also warned, way back when Moses was
writing down not only what is the Ten Commandments, but Deuteronomy,
which is almost the Second Law.
"Here is what he said to the children of Israel about this whole matter:
"'If there is found among you, within any of your gates which the Lord
your God gives you, a man or a woman who has been wicked in the sight of
the Lord your God, in transgressing His covenant, who has gone and
served other gods and worshipped them, either the sun or moon or any of
the hosts of heaven which I have not commanded you, and you hear of it,
then you shall inquire diligently. And if it is indeed true and certain
that such an abomination has been committed in Israel, then you shall
bring out to your gates that man or woman who has committed that wicked
thing, and stone to death that man or woman with stones.'" (Deuteronomy
"Now, that's what Moses said to the children of Israel about those who
worship the sun and the moon and the hosts of heaven, because these
things, at best, are lifeless nothings, or, if they are intelligent,
they're demonic. And, yes, there is a host of heaven. There are angels
and there are fallen angels. There is no question about it."
"Can a demon appear as a slanty-eyed, funny-looking creature? Of course
he can, or it can. Of course they can deceive people. And if they can
lead somebody away from the true God, or away from Jesus Christ, anyway
it happens, it doesn't matter, you will lose your salvation. It doesn't
matter how they get you. The question is, did they get you, and under
"This is man in rebellion against God, who refuses to take God's Law.
And God says, 'My covenant says you won't do this. And if I find anybody
in Israel,'-- "which is his pure nation" -- 'If I find anybody in Israel
that's doing this sort of thing, then I want you to take him out and
dispose of him."
"It's a clear violation of God's word."
Skipp Porteous, Freedom Writer publisher, commented: "As the founder and
chairman of the Christian Coalition -- a group dedicated to becoming the
most powerful political force in America -- Robertson's extreme ideas
need to be taken seriously, for they not only negate pluralism, but
condemn to death those who dare to believe differently."
