The thought of being bred clearly turns Pat on.

Ummmmmmmmm! Holy fuck.

Does Pat come up with this crap on his own, or does he have just enough computer knowledge to read some really iffy websites where he gets his ideas?

I'd ask if he has an older relative that sends him conspiracy theory e-mails, but I figure all of his older relations must be dead by now, assuming they're not some flavor of zombie, like him.

They hear false information somewhere or read it on whatever pages other old people link them to and stretch it out to some extreme because fundies view the world of things outside the comfort of their christian world as some kind of dark, Soviet Russia movie filtered bizarro land. Its like a fishing story and the telephone game mixed

It sounds like the kind of thing some kid would tell you on the playground in fourth grade.

more like what a misguided parent tells a home schooler

Nah, that was the story about the AIDS-infected needles that were being left on gas pump triggers.

He was doing sort of okay there right up until the end. And then that happened.

CBN is trying to get this taken down...

"Robertson: Gays Use Rings ..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by CBNonline+vid.

There should be a reform to copyright law where if they issue a takedown for copyright (which I hope will be refuted as I'd say this was done for purposes of review if nothing else), the actual reason needs to be stated: "We did this because Pat actually said what he thinks is true, revealing himself to be a hateful, loathsome specimen of human offal who is the result of actually buying into organized religion and its prejudice-filled bronze-age fairy tales, and that's a threat to our continued fleecing of the ignorant."

But that would hinder the ability of our wealthiest citizens to keep embarrassing facts from coming to light!

I'm pretty sure I've heard this story before, or, if it's not the one Pat used, it's probably similar. Story goes, there's a bunch of gays running around with serrated rings. The sharp bits of the rings are covered with AIDS, so the gays walk up to you all friendly like and shake your hand, then BIFFO, your hand gets cut and seven days later you come down with the AIDS.

TheOtherCapnS - 2013-08-27
AIDS in seven days, unless you send this story to ten other people!

I could have sworn it was on Snopes, too, but I can't find it now... which means IT'S PROBABLY TRUE.

Cockmaster Flash - 2013-08-27
These stars have more guts than CBN.

I'm really at a loss here. All of the loathsome little tidbits from Pat, relayed by RWW, and *this* is the one they pull a DMCA on?
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-08-27
Their lawyers move in strange and mysterious ways.

StanleyPain - 2013-08-27
It's not even a legit DMCA claim, not that the gutless turds at YouTube would ever stand up for free speech. It's completely fair use.

His apology and explanation is -- of course -- amazing. Please read:

"In my own experience, our organization sponsored a meeting years ago in San Francisco where trained security officers warned me about shaking hands because, in those days, certain AIDS-infected activists were deliberately trying to infect people like me by virtue of rings which would cut fingers and transfer blood."
Gmork - 2013-08-28
It's okay to repeat what a random security guard told him as factual information on national television.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-08-28
I just resubmitted the link via The Young Turks. They're not everyone's favorite, I know, but I have a feeling this'll become a fairly lengthy war of attrition, unless TYTs have dealt with this before.

Anyway, it's there.
cognitivedissonance - 2013-08-28
Right, but AIDS is killed on contact with oxygen. It could not be kept on a ring like something out of "The Borgias".
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-08-28
From the way he describes it, these fantasy rings allow mingling of fresh blood, so I guess they're supposed to cut both the wearer and the victim.

If I'd known being gay came with James Bond gadgets, I might have considered faking it to see what devices were available.

SolRo - 2013-08-28
That's why I avoid shaking hands with anyone that has a bloody ring finger. Other fingers being bloody is fine though.

Redford - 2013-08-28
This video contains equal quantities of truth and lies. It is really quite amazing!

Truth: The chances of you getting infected with aids, even if you were to have a car accident are quite small.

Lie: That there is a "homosexual agenda" hiding victims or dangers of this disease from people. There's this thing called the internet. He's old, so he may end up being exempt through the "Old people don't understand internet" clause. Though he is also violently ejecting these lies on national TV based on his own ignorance, so there you go.

Also Truth: There are in fact people who are Homosexuals, and have AIDS, who purposefully attempt to infect others. However their targets are mostly other gays because they see their AIDS as a punishment for their actions and are using it as a way to punish as many other people as possible. I wonder how a concept like that got spread around!

Also Lies: Most of these gays target other gays, due to their whole "AIDS is a punishment and I hate everyone including myself" thing. Unless you are going to random locations in the bronx and having gay sex with people, you're pretty safe (in terms of aids, not in terms of getting shot).
