It’s one thing to get a little annoyed at anyone posting too many baby pictures on Facebook, and then there’s this.

‘700 Club’ host Pat Robertson was answering some viewer mail on Monday, and he got one from a woman who wanted to know if it was safe for her daughter to post a picture of her unborn child online.

She wanted to know if this would have any harm, spiritually.

And then Roberston went all “American Horror Story” on us.

“There are demons and there are evil people in the world,” he said. “And you post a picture like that, and some cultist gets a hold of it or a coven and they begin muttering curses against an unborn child.”

As a reminder, this is the same man who thinks gays with AIDS wear rings to purposely cut and infect people, joked that man should move to Saudi Arabia to beat his wife and called the 2010 earthquake in Haiti a “blessing in disguise.”

Curious about their reasoning? Here's the manifesto they released regarding the bizarre funeral:

Not too long ago, this development led to a miraculous occurrence. A new technology turned the act of Liking into a commodity, hence into a symbolic totem and a new belief, at a time when faith in religion and our monetary system is crumbling.

At first these "Likes" seemed innocent. A gift bestowed upon us unconditionally and in overabundance. Sometimes the Likes would pile up like presents under a Christmas tree. But soon we started craving for more and eventually the "Like" became the opium of the masses. And now society has forgotten the real act of Liking. [...]

And instead of taking action to make change happen, our activism has been reduced and confined to the square inches of our computer screen activism has become clicktivism. We express our dislike of what is happening in the real world with a Like.

We as a society need to focus on real actions and intentions, rather than the symbolic reward bestowed on things by a mouse click. We must never forget that the real reward of Liking lies amongst ourselves and inside our communities.
