Pat Robertson: Gay Marriage Leads to Bestiality and Pedophilia
May 8, 2009
(ChattahBox)— Pat Robertson is at it again, making outrageous homophobic statements on his Christian Broadcasting Network, linking the legalization of same-sex marriage to not only polygamy and child molestation, but also to bestiality and pedophilia.
Robertson’s ramblings could be attributed to a befuddled old man, were his statements not so hateful and damaging to the thousands of same-sex couples who live normal middle class lives and raise children.
His bizarre statements were in response to a discussion on his CBN program, of the recent same-sex marriage laws in both Maine and New Hampshire. Robertson likened easing biblical restrictions on homosexuality to prohibitions in the bible against polygamy and bestiality, which he reasoned would soon go by the wayside as a result of same-sex marriage.
He then made the leap to child molestation and pedophilia saying, “How can we criminalize these things and at the same time have constitutional amendments allowing same-sex marriage among homosexuals.”
Robertson ended his rant on same-sex marriage by saying, “You mark my words, this is just the beginning in a long downward slide in relation to all the things that we consider to be abhorrent.”
Who actually watches the Christian Broadcast Network? Does anyone take what Pat Robertson says, seriously? Let’s hope not.
Meanwhile, Pat Robertson’s hateful comments need to be condemned.
