Dumbass of the Day Again: Pat Robertson Wants Gay Rights Advocates (Including Myself) To Shut Their Mouths
Yesterday on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson said that activists who don’t want Chick-fil-A on their college campus due to the company’s anti-gay advocacy should keep quiet: “I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I’m saying; until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth.” Robertson warned that legal abortion and homosexuality are violations of God’s law and are “the reasons why land will vomit out its inhabitants.”
Robertson: It’s a chicken sandwich, it’s a piece of white meat chicken between two pieces of white bread, it’s also a milkshake, now we’re going to go have demonstrations over that? But you know something, I was reading today in Leviticus, which is the law of the Old Testament, but it lays out the reasons why land will vomit out its inhabitants and it goes through a category of stuff we are calling Constitutional rights: killing babies, offering them to Moloch, and it says it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman. It’s what it says. That is the moral law that God set forth and now we’ve got people at a university petitioning because somebody said I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I’m saying; until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth.
Robertson is on a roll this week. My only two Dumbass of the Day awards ever have gone to him.
He’s like a walking garbage disposal that’s filled to the brim with vile, hateful, and snarky remarks such as this one. One thing that the GOP fails to realize about gay rights and their advocates is this: some advocates for gay rights are 100% heterosexual.
Maybe it would be better if hateful bigots and fake Christians like him shut their mouths for a change. It would give the rest of the world sanity for a change.
