    How Pat Robertson raised millions on the back of a non-existent aid project

    I've never been enamoured of televangelists, but this pretty much takes the biscuit. If you can find a scummier example of profiteering at the expense of the victims of genocide, I'll tip my hat to you.

    Yeah, pretty much another gleaming gem from Pat Robertson, like; practicing karate might get you possessed by demons, prayer deflects hurricanes (which are god's punishment for abortions), and 9/11 was due to Pagans and the ACLU. Yup, good ol' Pat. Oh yeah, Pat, you're a F***ING NUTJOB!!!. But that's just my opinion, I guess.

    Don't forget how he was a huge supporter of Charles Taylor of Liberia... because he had gold mine contracts with him. Forget that Charles Taylor was slaying people left and right.

    A Christian he is not.

    Pat Robertson threatens documentary team over film that says his Africa charity is a fraud | The Raw Story

    now he is trying to intimidate them


    ditto for youtube, trying to retract his statement about gays, AIDS and a ring to cut victims

    Doesn't he have a diamond mine in Africa, too?

    That was the point of the investment in 'aid' flights. He used them to maintain supplies to his diamond mine in the south of the D.R. Congo.

    Not that I would be exactly surprised if the accusations turned out true, but I'm highly skeptical of any such claims based on reporting from the guardian and a documentary film.

    It's not a question of editorial comment but of evidence from people involved, i.e. former employees of Robertson's so-called charity organisation. I understand you might probably have a political aversion to The Guardian. What do you have against these particular film-makers, who have no connection to the Guardian Media Group, that leads you to doubt their professional ethics? Or indeed those of the interviewees?
