The 700 Club is a "Christian" show shown on Fox, and it disgusts me why this show even exists.

Now, I used to be one of those people that went "ZOMG Christians lololololo ur all retarded mother fuckers, you can't even put up a good argument", and I was a bit of an angry Atheist. I've eventually learned that arguing and mocking Christians was useless and I should respect people that choose to have a religion, I'm fine with Christianity in itself and I don't hate people just because they believe in God.

I just don't agree with a show on TV that is all about Christianity and how "amazing and life changing" it is. I was sort of okay with it because it was on at times that really didn't matter, but suddenly commercials have come on and just about every single damn one of them is "See how Christianity and faith changed her life for the better" and "God is so good! Blah blah blah". I mean, what the fuck? If I had children, I'd be 100x more furious than I am now. Leave my fucking television alone, I don't want you to go on my television and broadcast how great Christianity. I don't want my kids being taught to blindly love Christianity because of a show that puts every bit of Christianity in a good light. No, get your God off my TV, and away from my children.

Oh, did I mention to you a few things about the retards on this show? What!? Retards, that's mean! I shouldn't be saying that, but wait, I should! The guy is a legitimate retard and Psychologists just haven't came up with a learning disability for him yet.

In this little article about ONE EPISODE in the 700 Club, the piece of shit managed to talk about how bad plastic surgery is... by mocking Asians and our "Oriental" eyes. Fuck that shit. Then here comes...


As Media Matters for America noted, Robertson has called Islam a "Christian heresy" and said that "Jewish people" are "very thrifty" and "extraordinarily good business people." Media Matters also noted that after officials in Orlando, Florida, voted in 1998 to fly rainbow flags from city lampposts during the annual Gay Days event at Disney World, Robertson issued the city a warning: "I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you. ... [A] condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs, it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor."


What!? What!? The Jew comments, the Islam comments, and then Terrorist bombs, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, and POSSIBLY a meteor because Disney is supporting gay people? Honestly, what the fuck?


He has described feminism as a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.


Hey ladies, I heard you might like this one.


In 1999 Robertson said Scotland was "a dark land" overrun by homosexuals. This caused the Bank of Scotland to drop plans for a business operation with him. Many Scottish customers were unhappy that their bank should do business with him


... /facepalm

Anyways, after I've given you a taste of how horrible this show is, I'm going to clear things up again. I don't hate Christians. I don't like Christian extremists that love to shove God down anything they can get their hands on, and then disrespecting every other religion in the process and make the world dumber and less tolerant than it already is. I don't want people preaching about how God hates homosexuals on TV children can easily access, I don't want religion being pushed down throats of people on TV children can easily access.

I don't want my child being taught about Christianity through beautifully crafted lens that makes everything about Christianity seem better than it already is. I want my child to be taught about Christianity through normal eyes, knowing the truth about the religion, and if my child wishes to convert to Christianity, he may do it. I just don't want him thinking "Oh, Angie Wilmington on the 700 Club lost 100 pounds all due to having faith in God and God made her lose the weight".

Really, stop preaching hateful things down Christian's throats and making them feel they need to hate because God wants them to. You're preaching to an audience of people that should have strong moral values (keyword: SHOULD), and you're calling Scot a place of homosexuals because your business operation went bad. All these controversies the show has created, all the hate this show has preached, and it's still on TV... Why?


...are you new to America? because this has been going on since the creation of the TV... All American shows are meant to sway people's minds one way or another. The media is biased and profit motivated. It has its fair share of propaganda, lies, and deciete.

And there's nothing ne one can do about it because of the free press. The best way to avoid shows you believe is influencing your children the wrong way is to turn off the tv.Because even children's cartoons are filled with sex,violence, and drugs.Even the Cookie Monster taught kids bad eating habits.

So no media is safe for children, or even adults for that matter. Very few shows on tv are accurate aside from Dr phil, history channel, Dr Oz, and sometimes animal planet.
Any other show could be considered bad influences for both adults and children.

Did you know Girls Gone Wild commercials appear on Comedy Central? Naked girls jumping around on free cable, sounds nices to a grown man, but a 5 yr old kid may be disturbed watching it.peace over war


What the hell you talking about...... NO Five year old is going to give a damn if there naked people on TV.. 5 year olds still have nakie-time.

The only people going to take offense to Naked people on tv.. are heavily medicated religious people who think its a sin to be naked. We are born into the world naked, being naked is natural. Anyone who thinks being naked is a bad thing or a sin, really needs to lay off snorting all them Prozacs!

'I see nothing wrong with naked people on tv. At that I say I rather my kids see naked people on tv, than Violence.'

I find it funny we have crime shows where it is ok to see a mutilated body.. but O hell no its not ok to see a boob...! Or even a privet part. As if that is more harmful than showing mutilated dead bodies.

The 700 Club is essentially the propaganda branch of the “religious-right,” political movement that’s been in America for a very long time. Now, you’ll be happy to know that there is significant evidence suggesting that the “religious right,” is losing support even in the nominal “bible-belt.”

This being said if you don’t want to hear what they have to say that’s really just too bad. Don’t watch Fox. It’s a privately owned network and they can air whatever they want. It’s just like whenever they tried to censor pornography on the internet. Adults have a right to receive and that right cannot be limited to material suited for children. There’s absolutely no reason for you to offended, especially considering that everybody knows the 700 Club is by and large a place to bullshit people.

This being said I’ve watched several episodes and never once noticed any bias against the Jews. Quite contrary, the 700 Club is happily a Zionist network. Interesting fact, Fox is owned by a Jew. Apparently he doesn’t find their statements offensive either. This leads me to think that you, or rather your source, is just SEARCHING for something to discredit the show rather than addressing the content.

Islam is in fact Christian heresy, by origin. Now, mind you, it’s evolved into its own religion. Still, the historical fact is that Islam originated as a revolutionized sect of the Judeo/Christian theological line. Even the Qur’an lays that out. Heresy, mind you, just means religion out of line with the orthodox interpretation. Protestantism is Catholic heresy.

The quote about feminism is exaggerated and generalizing, but is it untrue? I don’t think so. I think feminism is a corrupt political movement. The original feminists were pro-life, pro-prohibition, anti-contraceptive, and supported stronger family roles. Today the feminists are pro-abortion to the extreme, don’t seem to have a universal stance on alcohol (mothers against drunk driving is a feminist group,) clearly support contraceptive rights, and encourage women to be more independent of their families. The main groups of feminism also call for rebellion against traditional Judeo/Christian/Muslim values such as abstaining from sex and sorcery and being heterosexual. I don’t think they have a particular interest in witch craft. If they do it’s news to me. I do know that homosexuality is considered a part of the feminist agenda.

But, that’s not a controversial statement. It’s just an observation that many feminists sub-groups agree with. The lady who plays the wife on everybody loves Raymond, for example, is apparently (biography channel,) part of a feminist group that’s anti-abortion and conservative, Christian even. Yet, this is a rebellion against the trend.

Anyway, I gotta go to bed, but I think you’re being hyper sensitive and maybe a little dishonest with those quotes?

I pretty much agree with you seaph but i do believe in the teaching of contraceptives to reduce teenage pregnancy since you and i know that people are stupid and easily manipulated to have sex so it's best not to be a grandpa at 35 or 40 xP. On a second note i can be an ass and just say that all feminist to day are feminazi's but i won't go there oopsss <_<

What does being natural have to do with being moral? Rape, murder, death, suffering, all of these things are also natural. We’re born into this world through the suffering of our mothers and damn if most of us aren’t going to go out of it suffering too. But suffering is still bad. Nakedness may be natural, but that doesn’t mean it’s good. Which isn’t to say it’s bad but I just find it silly that people defend an action by saying it’s natural.

This being said plenty of people may be offended by naked people on the T.V because we don’t want to expose our children to it. But you know, that’s stupid. If you don’t want your children to see boobs don’t turn to the Boob channel.

I think it should be up to the network. Networks should be allowed to show whatever they want (first amendment, bitches,) but they should also be required to inform viewers of questionable content.


Also, in Germany the television is the opposite of ours. They’re fine with nudity but conservative about violence. Apparently they also, perhaps subsequently perhaps not, have a higher rate of sex related crimes while we have a higher rate of violent crimes.
