Overheard

In Their Own Words

I am willing to write in my own blood that of all those who call themselves lesbian or gay, a maximum of five to ten percent are effectively lesbian or gay. All the rest are just sexual perverts. I demand you write that down.

I think George Bush is going to win in a walk. I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004. The Lord has just blessed him. I mean, he could make terrible mistakes and comes out of it. It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad, God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him.
Rev. Marion (Pat) Robertson
"700 Club," Jan. 2, 2004
