On today’s episode of The 700 Club, there was a segment all about “The Challenge,” a faith-based “military-style” training camp that helps “boys become men.”
Pat Robertson clearly loved what they were doing, because he followed that segment with a rant against a culture that turns men into “wimps.”
Robertson said college students have “got to apologize for being masculine; they have to apologize for being white; they got to apologize for being males,” as he lamented that masculinity “now is regarded as something shameful.”
“By the time they’re little kids, they’re [feminized.] I mean, it’s just awful,” he added.
“Do you want a wimp?” he asked co-host Wendy Griffin.
He added that, at Regent University, which he founded, masculinity is still desired. (Good to know, Pat. Good to know.)
For what it’s worth, I can’t recall ever apologizing for being a man. And no college syllabus I’ve ever seen requires white people to say, “I’m sorry.” I guess things work differently in Robertson’s Bubble.
