Pat Robertson's fear mongering on the Murfressboro Mosque: "...the next thing you know, they’re going to be taking over the City Council..."

If you missed the shameful fear mongering on the part of Pat Robertson of the 700 Club, here it is. This is from the August 19th show. The segment on Murfressboro start at the 17 minute mark and goes for nine minutes. Among other things, Pat says that it is probably pretty easy to bribe folks in little towns like Murfressboro. This is interesting to see how Murfressboro is portrayed. With outside agitators like this stirring up the local Christian rednecks, no wonder we are seeing violence.

Below is an excerpt:

It isn’t just religion, just isn’t. Mark my words. If they start bringing thousands of Muslims into that relatively rural area, the next thing you know, they’re going to be taking over the City Council. Then they’re going to be having an ordinance that calls for public prayer 5 times a day. Then they’re going to be having ordinances that there’ll have to be facilities for foot-washing in all the public restrooms, in all the airport facilities, etc, etc. And, before long they’re going to demand, demand, demand, demand, and, little by little, the citizens of Murfreesboro, or whatever little town it is, are going to be cowed by these people. Not to mention their ability to bribe folks. I don’t know whether anybody is getting a pay-off, but it’s entirely possible.

Rutherford County Mayor Ernest Burgess holds his ground in defending Freedom of Religion and says the Mosque was treated like any other similar application and says it is not within his authority to investigate the source of funding for the mosque.
