Pat Robertson declared on “The 700 Club” this week that Jesus wouldn’t have baked a same-sex couple a wedding cake. That’s because Jesus wouldn’t know any gay couples, the conservative evangelist said, seeing as they all would have been stoned to death.
“I think you got to remember from the Bible, if you look carefully at the Bible what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death,” Robertson said. “So Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there. But we don’t have that in this country here so that’s the way it is.”
Robertson, who was named “Bigot of the Year” in this year’s Stonewall Awards, was referring to the Colorado Masterpiece Cakeshop case and those similar in which a vender refused to serve a same-sex couple due to Christian beliefs.
Right Wing Watch reports that Robertson went on to remind viewers of his warning of a few years ago that while homosexuality used to be considered a “pathology,” “those that are practicing that activity have turned and become the oppressors of those who hold deeply-held religious points of view, the tables have turned.”
“What is it about gays? What is it about abortion? Have you ever thought why they’re on the forefront right now? Both of them deny the reproduction of human species,” Robertson said, adding that homosexuality is “a meaningless exercise because it doesn’t go anywhere.”
“The Devil is trying to say, ‘I’m going to destroy your progeny any way I can… It’s a very serious thing and we’re not talking about it, and we need to as a society, we have to realize where the attack is coming because it is definitely an attack.”
Co-host Wendy Griffith concurred. “The Devil wants to steal, kill and destroy. Well said Pat.”
