Pat Robertson: Low-Carb Diets Are an Affront to God

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Pat Robertson has already come out against gays, saying some spread AIDS on purpose.

He's also taken wives to ask, blaming them for their cheating husbands.

And now the 83-year old televangelist has issued a warning to anyone cooking up an Atkins or Paleo recipe: you are totally dissing God!

In yet another impossible-to-believe segment on The 700 Club this week, Robertson told the story of some dude named Jimmy Moore who lost 180 pounds by cutting out carbs.

And what's the matter with such a healthy move?

"You get all kinds of problems where you ache like crazy," Robertson said of the diet. "That's the truth of it, if you don't have some carbs in there. The carbs are the fire that burns everything.

"Sooner or later, it violates the principles that God set down."

Sure, but probably later. Much, much, much, much later.

Robertson also once told a caller to move to Saudi Arabia so he could legally beat his wife.

Doesn't he know that a man is not supposed to cut his facial hair? These are the laws laid down by God. 27Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. 28Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. Whatever. These freaking preachers burn me up with what they pick and choose...

he does realize that carbs are also in vegetables and fruits and that those who don't eat grains and what not are still getting in carbs.. just a different kind...
