Pat Robertson’s Journey as 700 Club’ host

Robertson got into a lot of trouble as the host of “The 700 Club” because of his on-air declarations. In 2005, he advocated for Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s death. And urged inhabitants of a small Pennsylvania community not to be in shock if a calamity hit. Because they elected out school administrators who supported educating “intelligent design.”

Robertson, on the other hand, has advocated for the abolition of mandatory jail terms for possession of marijuana offenses. He then states on “The 700 Club” that marijuana should indeed be legal. And given the same treatment as alcohol since the state’s war against drugs has failed.

Robertson will keep appearing on The 700 Club on a monthly engaging edition and “sometimes when circumstances demands,” according to the network.

“His influence and the inspiration of his devotional life continues to guide The 700 Club in the coming years,” Gordon Robertson stated. He is indeed a man of great dedication and everyone gets inspired by him.
