Pat Robertson’s Ridiculous Rewriting of Historical Societies

Listening to Pat Robertson talk about the role of gays in America sounds like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking about, well, gays in America: They’re the reason we’re in such despair!

Robertson says that “any country that openly embraces homosexuality through the history of mankind has gone down into ruin. That’s the historical record.”

Surely he must mean ancient Egypt, and the Romans and the Greeks, which all “embraced” same-sex relationships to some degree? And by that logic, any country that embraced, say, agriculture, technology, and art all went down in ruin, so PLEASE KNOCK THAT OFF, America.
