Robertson Calls To Ban Fifty Shades Of Gray: “Only Men Are Allowed To Enjoy Masochism”

Televangelist Pat Robertson asserted recently that women who wanted to serve their country in combat roles were probably sexual deviants inspired by the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.” On the Thursday edition of “The 700 Club,” Robertson asked co-host Wendy Griffith why women would want to serve in combat roles even after the military announced plans to remove gender restrictions. “The feminists have gotten to a point where women are going to be drafted and put into combat units,” Robertson remarked. “Why would any woman in her right mind want that?”

“I mean, this is something that I have experience with, I have served in the army and I know firsthand what women will have to face out there. I just can’t get my head around it. Isn’t it easier to stay home, have kids, cook meals and satisfy your husband compared to crawling though trenches, avoiding sniper and artillery fire and not showering for weeks?” Robertson asked. “In fact, I’ll tell you why we’re having this problem. It’s because of our culture, the entire moral system of our country is being flushed down the toilet, and with it, our traditional values. ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ is the perfect example of that. It sends the message that it’s ok for women to enjoy masochism. It’s just not.”

He continued, “I am sorry if this sounds like I’m disrespectful of women, but I just fail to see the point in all of this. I believe that women are the greatest treasure bestowed onto us men, they complete us, they bear our children and they are our partners in this life. But that doesn’t mean that they should be equal to us in every single thing we men dominate. Call me a traditionalist, but I believe that, other than defloration and giving birth, women should feel no other type of pain. It’s our job as men to make sure they are protected and to be there for them. After all, that’s why I think ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ is a bad movie, because it shows a man torturing a woman who’s in love with him. In my mind that’s unforgivable. And plus, the books were way better.”

Griffith then interjected, saying, “So you saw the movie AND read the books? Wow, that’s some investigative diligence on your part.” Robertson replied, “I believe it’s important to be thorough in all things that pertain to our role as public figures. So, even though it was a sh*tty movie, I’ll still be realistic and admit that it all looked way better and hotter while I was picturing it in my head when reading the books. I’d even go so far as to say that it’s okay for women to read the book if they want to, but they should definitely stay away from the movie. What’s more, I think we need to ban that movie altogether. The first reason for that is that it just sucks, and the second is that women should leave all matters of war to men, including masochism that derives from it.”
