Surprise! Pat Robertson Defends Chris Broussard’s Anti-Gay Remarks On ESPN

Screen shot 2013-05-01 at 3.55.24 PMInsane television personality Pat Robertson used his 700 Club soapbox yesterday to offer his own two cents on the recent anti-gay remarks made by ESPN reporter Chris Broussard during a live discussion about Jason Collins.

After Collins came out in the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated on Monday, Broussard appeared on Outside the Lines to “report” his opinion on the matter: that living a homosexual lifestyle is “an open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ.”

ESPN was quick to issue an apology on behalf of Broussard. Broussard twiddled his thumbs.

Pat Robertson (surprise!) agrees with Broussard, and told 700 Club viewers that “fornication is a sin, and “somebody that says that that kind of conduct is sinful is now being pilloried in the press. He’s telling the truth! This is what the Bible says!”

He continued:

“You can’t tell them if they want to go to hell or heaven, that’s their business. But don’t tell somebody that he can’t speak specifically about what the Christian faith says about certain conduct. There isn’t anything bigoted about that.”

    I sure wish someone would fornicate Pat Robertson until his shriveled heart finally stops.

  • Dakotahgeo

    This old bastard’s comment doesn’t even merit a fart for a response. He’s a used up christian hater!

  • Dakotahgeo

    @Polaro: What heart? (But I do appreciate your comment).

  • Lefty

    Is he still alive?
    Seriously, has anyone checked?

  • Cam

    Gee, what a shock, a hateful bigot defends another hateful bigot.

  • MK Ultra

    Robertson reminds me of a deranged puppet, like a Chucky doll or some hideous thing like that

    Child fuckers stick together don’t they Pat?, given your very, very long history of paedophilia you know better than anyone.

  • Polaro

    @Dakotahgeo: Made me laugh.

    Well, he IS speaking the truth as far as the Bible, and Christianity are concerned. The problem as I see it is that gay people keep expecting that Christianity will change its doctrine. It hasn’t changed in two thousand years, and society has moved on. My advice is to drop religion, which has almost no chance of being true anyway, and live your life as an honest, decent upright secular person without worrying about some bronze-age ideas regarding sin, and an extremely unlikely afterlife.

    @dayglowjim: Exactly how I feel. Well said.

  • CalgaryBill

    @dayglowjim He isn’t speaking the truth as far as the bible is concerned unless you think that cherry picking verses is truthful. In addition, the churches have changed drastically over the last 2000 years. It’s only in the last 500 or so years that the concept of grace has existed in the non-RC cults so that even Hitler can get into a Xtian heaven. And you might want to do a google search for the date of the last same sex marriage performed by the RCs.

    The Xtians can’t seem to get it that marriage predates their belief system by 1000s of years. Don’t defend the hypocrites whose major influence over the last 2000 years or so has only been to ensure the destruction of all other cultures.

    @dayglowjim: The Church’s interpretation of the bible used to be that the World was flat and at the centre of the universe. When Galileo invented his telescope, the science as a result of it showed the church’s interpretation to be flat out wrong and as such he was branded a heretic. Only recently has that church admitted that it was wrong. The same thing is happening here today with the subject of gay people. Science is proving that we are born this way and just like then, they refuse to accept this fact. I’m not holding my breath.

    Pat cant tell the truth to save his own life. As for what the Bible says, well it said that a husband and wife sold some property and gave half to the church, but told the everybody they gave all the money to the church. The Bible says God killed them for lying.

    Well Pat has done the same thing, when he told everybody that he was going to help those people in Zaire when the Ebola virus struck. He asked for money on his program, and they gave him three million dollars for him to fly his privet Learjet with medical supplies to save those poor people. According to the IRS, he flew over there with $300 dollars worth of Band-Aids.

    Real reason he went over there was to fly out his diamond and gold from his personal diamond and gold minds so his Diamonds and Gold would not be trapped by the Ebola virus.

    Again this info came from the IRS.
