700 Club & CBN: Require Pat Robertson To Attend Sensitivity Training
The Christian Broadcasting Network, Inc. We, the undersigned persons write this letter to you out of frustration with a situation that continues to repeat itself on your network. Pat Robertson has, over the course of his career, continued to stigmatize minorities with statements that are factually unsound. These groups include protected categories such as sexual orientation and religion. He has also made statements regarding persons with HIV/AIDS that are very disturbing. This has the potential to incite violence against these communities in both the short and long-term. As a gay Buddhist who has to sometimes pass by your channel to get to where I’m going; I am deeply concerned with what people like Pat Robertson are doing to Christianity and to the stability and morale of United States collectively. We respectfully ask that you will require Mr. Robertson to at a minimum, attend sensitivity training. There is no other individual on your network that behaves this way. He only exacerbates existing tensions between various groups of people. This is not at all in line with the Bible or the teachings of Christ. Please, do the socially responsible thing and ensure this man does not cause anymore harm. We look forward to your response.
