Pat Robertson‘s show The 700 Club has brought us yet another gem about the nature of human attraction and reproduction.
Here’s the video, collected by Right Wing Watch:
A viewer asked the following question:
I’ve been in church all my life with my family. We are not allowed to date. The only ones in my church that are married already knew their partners before coming in to church. It is treated as a sin to show interest or to have a mutual understanding in church with the opposite sex. Most of the people in the church are frustrated because we’re getting older and no one is getting married. We pray about the issue but it seems like it is bouncing back. What should I do? — Crystal
Here’s Pat’s answer:
You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce. You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce. Same thing with that church. It’s doomed, it’s going to die out, because this is the most nonsensical thing I have heard in a long time. This is absurd. God has made us to be in families, God has created the desire of men and women to have attraction to the opposite sex so that they will reproduce and have children. If I were you, I’d get out of that church as fast as I could, cast the dust of it on your feet, shake off the dust and run.
This question had virtually nothing to do with homosexuality, and Robertson found a reason to make it an anti-gay thing. He doesn’t go as far as advocating for premarital sex here, but apparently, he’s down for premarital mingling as long as it’s not the gay kind. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: he thinks about gay sex more than we do!
