Pat Robertson: Manning Injury Would ‘Serve Broncos Right’ After Tebow Trade

(WSCR) Pat Robertson is at it again.

According to a report, the televangelist said new Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning should be punished with an inury because the team traded devout Christian Tim Tebow.

“I think the Denver Broncos treated [Tebow] shabbily,” Robertson said on Thursday. “He won seven games. He brought them into the playoffs, for heaven sakes. I mean, they were a nothing team. He rallied them together with spectacular last-minute passes and, you know, when they beat Buffalo — I mean, Pittsburgh — it was a tremendous victory.

“And you just ask yourself, OK, Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback — and in my opinion, it would serve them right.”

    For a man of peace and Christ, he sure wants alot of people to get hurt and die. Manning isn’t the one that sent Tebow packing. It was the Bronco’s leadership wanting a good QB. One that could win a game where the other team didn’t hand it to them.

    Typical Christian Tebow fan

  • shut up already

    Too much negative feedback must have forced a headline change. The “journalist” are just idiots with a keyboard.

  • Mike Leahy

    more hate from the cristian right

    • Chris

      I’m a Christian, but I would never say something like what Pat did. Where gets off thinking that he is allowed to pass judgement on others is beyond me. It seems to be the one thing that “christians” with power like to do. It makes us all look bad. Go Peyton!

      • Moderate Spaulding!

        That’s exactly what I’m thinking, Chris.

        I want the Broncos to lose, but in the context of fair play, good sportsmanship, and competition.
        And, there’s nothing wrong with saying Tebow is a miraculous player in football, and you want to see him compete.
        Pat Robertson seems to think that there is an evil opposite in a lot of things. If he’s watched any football, there might be, but it’s NOT Peyton Manning!

    what a goof ball

    Rev. Pat’s just rallying around a future fellow bible thumping snake-oil salesman.

    “Time for lust!
    Time for lies!
    Time to kiss your life good-bye!
    Send me money-send me green!
    Heaven will meet!
    Make a contribution and you’ll get a better seat!

    I think Pat Robertson is an old moron. But I don’t see how what he said equates to wanting Manning to get injured. The Broncos traded away a decent backup QB. If Manning does get injured (I know, a long shot after all the neck surgeries and such) they now have no decent backup to come in and take over. Is this somehow untrue? What I see is Robertson suggesting that karma could come back to bite them (which is ironically an eastern religious tenet) but I don’t see anything that suggests he thinks Manning should be “punished with an injury”.

    I think god wanted Tebow traded that’s why in 2005 god hurt Manning’s neck during a game. Pat- relax. This is all part of god’s plan to further his ministry with Tebow as his main proselytizer in the largest media market in the world. He’ll hurt Sanchez, a catholic (gasp!!!!) In the first couple of games, Tebow will fly in on the backs of the archangels and rally the Jets against the New England Heretics, I mean, Patriots.

    another jesus whacko

    The quote was that if Manning gets hurt and leaves Denver with no quarterback that would serve them right. Isn’t that the position they were in in the first place? Tebow sucks, no matter how much faith he has in God. It’s because God hates him. I believe that God hates Robertson, too. He must. Robertson isn’t just a miserable old man, he was a miserable young man. Seems to me that there is a bunch of almighty Christians running around hoping that death and destruction happens to their enemies, but somehow that’s ok because they have the Faith of God on their side, instead of seeing that their life sucks, and their lashing out on others is just a symptom of that. I’m willing to bet that Robertson also thinks that 409 wins also negates child-rape on the Penn St. campus as well. Let your freak-flag fly, Pat, let us know how you really feel. Don’t hold back. No matter how much faith you have, your time here on Earth is limited, and the truth is that no one will miss you when you’re gone, except to figure out where all the money is going to go. As we all know, that is the true agenda of Pat Robertson and his followers. If Tebow becomes irrelevant (he will) then the Christian faith loses even more money available to them than they have in the past 50 years. THAT’s what Robertson’s worried about. Nothing else.


    Stupidity and Pat Robertson seem to go hand in hand, ever since he used his “700 Club” platform to actually urge the U.S. Government to assassinate President Hugo Chavez of oil-rich Venezuela in 2005. What Robertson said about Peyton Manning & Tim Tebow is just another example of such stupidity, especially when considering that he’s also come under fire for what he said about the Earthquake in Haiti & the recent tornadoes in the Midwest. Something tells me this isn’t the last stupid thing Robertson will say on his daily program.
