Pat Robertson says you can get AIDS from a towel (video)

A Christian wanting to do missionary work in Kenya wrote religious right broadcaster, and former Republican presidential candiate, Pat Robertson, asking Robertson is it was too dangerous, what with Ebola and all.

Robertson replied that the real threat was AIDS, which you can get from “towels.”

“You might get AIDS in Kenya. The people have AIDS, you gotta be careful. I mean, the towels could have AIDS.”

Yes, the dreaded Kenyan AIDS towels.

Robertson is a longtime “expert” on AIDS. A few years back, Robertson claimed that gays in San Francisco wore secret rings on their fingers that they used to give people AIDS with pin pricks.
