Someone Forgot To Tell Pat Robertson Same-Sex Marriage Is Legal

During a recent telecast of The 700 Club, the world’s oldest living dinosaur host Pat Robertson responded to a viewer’s question by suggesting that the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling is merely an opinion that will impact the “couple of people” involved in the case.

The ruling, Robertson insists, would only have a larger impact if Congress or state legislatures pass gay marriage bills:

“In the legal system, party A sues party B over marriage, ‘I want to get married to them,’ and the court says, ‘Okay, you can get married.’ That doesn’t mean that I’ve got to get married to homosexuals, it doesn’t mean that you have to, nor does it mean that it’s the law of the land. Congress didn’t pass any law. Your state legislature didn’t pass a law. So you’re not under anything, it’s a decision of the court having to do with a couple of people. Now they would like to make it bigger than that but, in terms of the Constitution, it isn’t.”
