Who’s senator Pat Robertson from “The 700 Club”? Wiki: Net Worth, Wife

# Fact 1 Had attended church at an early age. 2 All of the presidents whom Robertson was working for; whilst in college, were actually friends of his father’s. 3 His hobbies are: raising horses, politics, spending time with his family, hunting, studying, reading, praying, golfing, weightlifting, ballroom dancing, listening to music and fishing. 4 Is the only televangelist ever to have higher education in college, while spending time in the military, and to attempt to run for president, than anybody else. 5 At one point, he wanted to become a politician, when he wound up being both a televangelist and a television host. 6 At McCallie Preparatory High School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, being the popular student that Robertson was, he played in a lot of sports, such as: football, boxing, track and weightlifting. As he entered college, he played wrestling. 7 Former Republican Congressman Pete McCloskey, who served with Robertson in Korea, wrote a public letter which said that Robertson was actually spared combat duty when his powerful father, a U.S. Senator, intervened on his behalf, and that Robertson spent most of his time in an office in Japan. According to McCloskey, his time in the service was not in combat but as the “liquor officer” responsible for keeping the officers’ clubs supplied with liquor. Robertson filed a $35 million libel suit against McCloskey. He dropped the case in 1988, before it came to trial and paid McCloskey’s court costs. According to a newspaper report, Robertson confirmed elements of McCloskey’s allegations and said that he never saw front-line duty. [1986]. 8 Robertson’s father named him after a cousin who had been his father’s college roommate, Marion Gordon. His six-year-old brother delighted in patting his little hands on his baby brother’s chubby cheeks while he said “pat, pat, pat” over and over. His parents must have thought this was cute, so they made “Pat” his nickname. He was obviously defenseless to protest “Pat,” but in later life, he felt that “Marion” sounded a touch effeminate and “M. Gordon” sounded affected, so he was named Pat. 9 Received a letter from one of Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, about her husband’s, Danny Lotz’s, frailing health, asking him for urgent prayer. [20 June 2014]. 10 Has retired as Chief Executive of CBN and his son Gord Robertson succeeded him. [3 December 2007]. 11 A global businessman with media holdings in Asia, the United Kingdom, and Africa, he struck a deal with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based General Nutrition Center to produce and market a weight-loss shake he created and promoted on The 700 Club (1966). 12 Robertson’s diamond business also involved Charles Taylor, the Liberian leader who seized power in a violent coup, and became president after an election, widely considered tainted, held the following year. Robertson referred to Taylor as a Christian, a good Baptist, and a friend. To the rest of the world, however, Taylor is a man indicted for war crimes, including much of the bloodshed and atrocities that have afflicted Liberia and its neighbor nations for years. [1996]. 13 In 1977, he purchased a local Leased access cable TV channel in the Hampton Roads area and called it CBN. Originally he went door-to-door in Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads, and other surrounding areas asking Christians to buy cable boxes so that they could receive his new channel. He also canvassed local churches in the Virginia Beach area to do the same, and solicited donations through public speaking engagements at local churches and on CBN. One of his friends, John Giminez, the pastor of Rock Church Virginia Beach, was influential in helping Robertson establish CBN with donations, as well as offering the services of volunteers from his church. 14 Governing Member of the Council for National Policy (CNP): Board of Governors 1982, President Executive Committee 1985-86, member, 1984, 1988, 1998.[36]. 15 Robertson was a signer of the document Evangelicals and Catholics Together.

Sitting at a sidewalk café in Paris in mid-June 1950, he read “La guerre dans Coree.” Then as he read on, he learned that the United States was calling the “fusiliers marins” into active service. That meant him. On October 2, 1950, a couple of weeks after his return from Europe, Robertson was ordered to report for duty at the First Special Basic Class for young Marine Corps officers at Quantico, Virginia. 20 When asked in 2012 about how to repair his marriage to a woman who “has no respect for me as the head of the house,” he ridiculously (and offensively) said to the married man that he could go to Saudi Arabia, and become a Muslim.

When he ran for President, however, Time magazine dug up Robertson’s marriage license, and found that he was married in August of 1954, about ten weeks before his first son’s birthday. Robertson said he and his wife had always celebrate their anniversary in March, on his own birthday, “because our son was conceived that day.” In more recent public biographies, Robertson’s wedding date is listed correctly, but now his firstborn son is frequently listed as having been born in 1955. 29 Underwent another successful open heart surgery at First Health Moore Regional Hospital, Pinehurst, North Carolina. [19 August 2009]. 30 Despite being on good terms with him, Sheila Walsh left The 700 Club (1966), in 1992. Ideological differences with him and general feelings of depression brought Walsh to re-examine her life’s direction. She sought therapy for her depression, eventually returning to college at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California to take on doctoral studies in theology. Robertson explained her departure from CBN as the result of a “nervous breakdown” brought on by the tremendous demands of her work with CBN. He asked his viewers to keep her in their prayers and ask God to give her the strength to continue doing His work, hence, she was replaced by original former co-host, Ben Kinchlow, a second time, who stayed on until he departed for good, in 1996. 31 Had celebrated his 80th birthday.
