RidicuList: Pat Robertson's AIDS theory doesn't "ring" true

If you believe it's impossible to spread AIDS with a handshake, then you might have missed a recent episode of the "700 Club." Televangelist Pat Robertson threw science aside by claiming gay men are spreading the disease using sharp rings that pierce any hands they shake. Sound crazy to you? Wait until you hear what else Robertson has to say in tonight's RidicuList.

    Mr. Cooper, It was interesting to hear your remarks about Pat Robinson on your “Ridiculous” segment.
    I must say that I was shocked and dismayed to hear these remarks made by Pat Robinson.
    But, I was more surprised with the irony that you, a world class news anchor would act like a school child, acting as if you are un-trained in the art of spewing infertile corruption from the same stagnant sepulchre you literally eat it with. Take a mint.

    Not all Christians are like that. If you were to put up a news story about a crazy Muslim, you would explain how they are making good Muslims look bad... why the double standard?

    I am a 50 year old gay man. I have lost two partners from AIDS. Since the 80s I have watched all my friends die off until I can count on one hand the number of friends who have survived. I don't think my story is unique; most gay people can claim the same statistics to varying degrees. For Pat Robertson to claim that we intentionally spread this disease to innocent people is just unconscionable and against all logic. He needs to do what the Archbishop of Canterbury tasks all professed Christian homophobes to do: repent and do it immediately!!

    AID have been known to spread, through unprotected intercourse, as well as the transfer of body fluids, I believe people with aids and other contagious infections and deseases have a moral obligation to be clean about themselves and what they do , to prevent the further spread of the desease, eventually they will find a cure for it. 25% of people with aids are not aware they have aids.

    When other territories start bombing or invading Israel. Israel answers,by forcing them to retreat, and this seems to work for a while.
