Pat Robertson said on The 700 Club today that politicians who advocated for LGBTQ rights needed to be voted out before all of society was destroyed. After all, the “gay agenda” involved making sure “their weird way of doing sex is legitimized.”
(For those of you who don’t speak Christianese, “doing sex” is what the rest of us just call “sex,” and “their weird way” of making the love is pretty much what a whole lot of straight couples do all the time.)
Robertson was furious over a story about how a Catholic foster care agency in Philadelphia was going to close down because it didn’t want to abide by the city’s non-discrimination ordinance.
“The incredible thing about the homosexuals is they are willing to destroy lives and destroy the whole fabric of society so long as they and their weird way of doing sex is legitimized,” he said. “That’s what they want and they will take away everything; they will destroy marriage, they will destroy families, they will destroy, in this case, the foster children. They are willing to tear down the entire edifice in order to have the majority of people recognize the way they do sex.”
“I think if Christians begin to speak out and insist that if some politician goes along with the gay agenda, that they’re going to be voted out of office,” Robertson added. “Once they get that message, they’ll start saying, ‘We want to listen to the majority of the people in our society.’ Until they do, that small minority is going to be dominating everything we do and every aspect of our lives.”
Of course, gay people don’t want to destroy marriage. They want the ability to get married. They don’t want to destroy families. They want their own families. They don’t want to hurt foster children. They want to adopt them. They’re not ruining the fabric of society. They’re part of that fabric.
Robertson refuses to accept that because he’s too hung up on which positions they use in the bedroom. As the critics often say, no one thinks about gay sex more than conservative Christians. Maybe if Robertson stopped thinking about what parts go in what holes, he’d find time to advocate for children who need parents instead of his fellow Christian bigots.
