Pat Robertson: People Who Are Addicted To Drugs Are 'Enslaved By Vegetables'

In only the world created by Pat Robertson would addiction be reduced to people being slaves to vegetables.

I doubt Pat Robertson would do very well on Jeopardy or any other game show or puzzle that asked for correct answers to posed questions because as a man of God, he just makes sh*t up. In his rant against drug addiction, the 700 Club founder makes believe marijuana is a vegetable to make his point. It's an herb.

Raw Story:

God gave you and me as human beings authority, he gave us dominion over everything on this Earth,” the TV preacher explained on Monday’s 700 Club. “Over all the animals, all the snakes, all the birds, all the plants, all the vegetables.”

“Cocaine is the product of a vegetable, alcohol is the product of a vegetable, marijuana is a vegetable,” he continued. “And yet, people are enslaved to vegetables. And you were made in the image of God. God made you in his image to reign and rule with him. He gave you incredible authority.”
“Why would you become a slave to a vegetable? Why? Why would you do it.?

Robertson said that he had “seen a lot of stuff” in his lifetime so he understood that people had a lot of problems, “but God Almighty can deliver you from the bondage of your addiction.”

“Your slavery to vegetables, he can set you free,” he insisted.
