Once again, televangelist Pat Robertson opened his mouth and the shit just flew.
Today on the 700 Club, the 84-year-old host said Jesus never would have baked a gay wedding cake. And not because ovens hadn’t been invented yet, or because he was a carpenter, but because gay people would have been murdered long before making it that close to the alter, according to a report by Right Wing Watch.
“If you look carefully at the Bible, what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together?” Roberston asked. “They would have been stoned to death. So Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there.”
Robertson then added: “But we don’t have that in this country here so that’s the way it is.”
Yes, unfortunately, Mr. Robertson, we don’t stone gay people anymore. And as a result, we have gay wedding cakes. But surely that doesn’t signify the end of the world. Oh wait! According to Pat it does. He continued:
“What is it about gays? What is it about abortion? Have you ever thought why they’re on the forefront right now? Both of them deny the reproduction of human species.”
Homosexuality, he claimed, is “a meaningless exercise because it doesn’t go anywhere!”
“The Devil is trying to say, ‘I’m going to destroy your progeny any way I can. If you will kill your babies, that’s fine, I’m with you; if you will deny the chance of having babies, that’s fine too; but I want to destroy your opportunities to reproduce,’” Robertson claimed. “It’s a very serious thing and we’re not talking about it, and we need to as a society, we have to realize where the attack is coming because it is definitely an attack!”
Co-host Wendy Griffith nodded in agreement. “The Devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy. Well said, Pat.”
