Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson believes that Europe is a hop, skip and a goosestep away from a full-on Nazi blow-out, complete with guillotines, thanks to their tolerance of atheism.
Robertson said Monday that he believes Europe is headed for a grand scale Nazi return because humanists, atheists, and other liberals who reject God, reports Raw Story.
His comments came during a discussion on a bill in Belgium that will expand the country’s euthanasia to terminally-ill children. Robertson bemoaned that the bill showed that a Nazi-inspired “spirit of death” is still alive and well in Europe today.
“You know the liberals, the so called socialists, the progressives, they’ve moved away from God and when you move away from God then you say, ‘were humanists,'” he said. “Then as a result of humanity and rejecting God, you have the orgy of the French Revolution, you have the guillotine cutting off the heads of thousands of people.”
“You have the same thing going on now in Europe,” he added. “You had it under the Nazis.”
“Why can’t we come back to the fact that God loves people?”
In semi-related news, Pope Francis warned Christians against turning to extreme ideology during daily Mass last Thursday.
“The faith passes, so to speak, through a distiller and becomes ideology,” Francis said. “And ideology does not beckon [people]. In ideologies there is not Jesus: in his tenderness, his love, his meekness. And ideologies are rigid, always. Of every sign: rigid.”
“And when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them: ‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’ The knowledge of Jesus is transformed into an ideological and also moralistic knowledge, because these close the door with many requirements.
“The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people, distances, distances the people and distances of the Church of the people. But it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?”
