Douchebaggery At Its Finest!

On The 700 Club, Pat Robertson said of Islam:
"I want to say it again, and again, and again: Islam is not a religion, it is a political system meant on -- bent on world domination, not a religion. It masquerades as a religion, but the religion covers a worldwide attempt to exercise power and to subjugate the world to their way of thinking. They want a caliphate as they had once before; they want all people to be subjected to Sharia and to live under their rules and their domination. It is every bit as insidious as communism, perhaps more so. But to say, 'Well, it's a religion, and you should leave a religion alone,' that's just not the way it works."
Robertson also warned:
"those that don't have any faith": "[L]et me tell you what they're going to do to you will be more horrible than anything you can imagine. And you better understand that Christianity is the way to freedom and not to slavery. This other thing is the way to slavery, not freedom." Before making the comments, Robertson stated: "Well, we've been saying it, but it looks like the political correctness in our society won't let you say it. They make fun of people who speak out boldly against Islam."

Unlike modern fundamentalist Christians, right Pat?
