Professional crazy person Pat Robertson still has a television show, but Freaks and Geeks got canned after one season. Sound fair? It isn't, but it's the way things work here in the good ol' U.S. of A.
During a recent episode of the Christian Broadcast Network's The 700 Club, Robertson explained that gay men who have AIDS spread the disease to unsuspecting straight people on purpose. What mechanism do they use to deliver the disease? Why, their special decoder rings, of course.
Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands. However, one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson's comments after they aired…
"You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they'll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring's got a little thing where you cut your finger," Robertson said. "Really. It's that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder."
Yup. This show airs, like, all the time, but NBC turned The Black Donnellys into webisodes after three episodes. This is the world we live in.
