Rev. Pat Robertson:
'Bible Advocates Genocide'
I ran across your site while searching for a Pat Robertson quote. (Loved your site, by the way.)
When he was running for president, Robertson said that sometimes God calls his people to exterminate all the members of a group, that is, to commit genocide. That was a while ago. I've been unable to track down the source of the quote. (It wasn't covered by the mainstream media.)
Do you happen to have this one? I'd be very grateful if you located it.
Thanks. Keep up the good work.

There is a genocide section in our Big List of Scary Robertson Quotations page. I don't know if this is the particular quotation you're looking for, though, but it is quite sobering to know that such a powerfully influential man teaches his followers that God says it's okay to kill those whose religious beliefs differ from yours.
