Pat Robertson's latest disgusting bigoted lie: Time for a CBN Boycott?

http://leftaction.com/action/tell-cbn-its-time-pat-robertson-go

Pat said gays in San Francisco are using special rings to infect other people with AIDS when they shake hands. This page is calling for a boycott of CBN saying:

Tell CBN:  It's time for Pat Robertson to go.

I don't have a lot of experience with boycotts but for the sake of solidarity, how can we get a list of sponsors to begin raising awareness that people are not having this anymore?

Somehow this tommyrot sounds like how Masons recognize each other from a handshake. Do you think the demented old fool could be that confused? If there is any truth at all in what he says maybe this method could be used to vaccinate against measles. Then all we have to do is pass it along to Kenneth Copeland.

CBN is in the business of peddling ignorant, bigoted, superstition. Asking CBN to get rid of Robertson is like asking the Kentucky Derby to boycott horses.

I say let him stay and keep on talking.  It only helps our cause and further divides the religious community and makes them look bad.  It's a win - win situation to me.

Robertson to the CBN community is, as the saying goes, MONEY.  Giving up on him would be slitting their own throat and they know it.  I'm glad to sign the petition, but it will take something with a lot more impact than a bunch of names on a sheet of paper to get CBN to give up on their sugar daddy.

I don't think they will fire him.

I remember hearing that same thing about 30 years ago.  I don't know where I heard it.

It wouldn't surprise me if CBN gets a big surge in contributions every time Robertson says the word "homosexual".

His outrageous bigotry at least has the merit of exposing fundamentalist Christianity for the crass ideology it is.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Mr Robertson had a bit of closet gay fun himself, before spewing his homophobia from the pulpit TV screen.
