What someone who doesn't watch the show might think of the content of his show, or the beliefs, values, politics, etc of Robertson is not relevant to the discussion, since they would never see the statement anyway.

viewers and that cuts into his bottom line.
According to a article in the LA Times yesterday, Robertson did in fact ask his viewers to flood Directv with calls. The only reason
ABC Family even carries the 700 Club is because it was a concession they had to make when they purchased to channel.
I doubt they would carry it otherwise. Regardless, the lose of the channel (and the show) are really no lose at all (IMO).

YOUR calls not to cancel it would be more valid than these people's because?
Whoever has a show on that channel telling people to call in would be more valid that this because?

There are much worse things going on than having your pannies in a bunch. Must Christian organization's believe it or not try to help people including the 700 club. Like in anything, there are the bad ones out there that people like to trump up all the time, but never mention all the good they do in helping people all over the world.....

I think that religious leaders and organizations who dedicate themselves to do good works DO get recognized. However, when a specific religion or religious leader moves into the political arena they are fair game for criticism. The 700 club is as much about politics as it is religion. It appears to me that it is also about money.
