The shock here isn't that Pat Robertson is saying outrageous things--he has ALWAYS done that. Instead, the surprise is he is still around to say anything at all.
Robertson is 86 years old and apparently is trying to outdo Methuselah in longevity.
He is still as crazy now as he was 35 or 40 years ago:
Everybody knew he was talking metaphorically when speaking about the LGBTs and the Muslims "killing themselves" while people like him sit on the sidelines.
Of course, the shooting had little to do with either group despite the fact it was LGBTs who were victimized. The issues were untreated mental illness and easy gun access.
Both issues the GOP and people like Robertson refuse to deal with.
