Pat Robertson Doesn't Recommend Adopting Foreign Children

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Apparently, Pat Robertson thought he was getting too many Christmas cards from the Jolie/Pitt household when he said that he didn't necessarily think people should be adopting foreign children.

Relevant "weird" quote from Mr. Robertson for those who can't YouTube at work:

I've got a dear friend who adopted some little kid from an old fishing town in Colombia. Child had brain damage and grew up, uh, weird. You just never know what been done to a child before you get that child, what kind of sexual abuse, what kind of cruelty, what kind of food deprivation, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

At least he showed remarkable self-awareness of the potential rabble he just roused, closing his rambling with, "OK, let's get the next question, I'm in trouble."
