On Monday’s 700 Club, Pat Robertson said that he wished Facebook had a “vomit” option along with “like” because when he sees men kissing, it makes him want to vomit. And that seemed to be the theme of the day, as he also cited verses about the land “vomiting up” gay people, or something.
“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this, well the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights it talked about this was an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.” Robertson continued. “Which is going to take precedence, the Supreme Court of the United States or the holy word of God?”
The Supreme Court, Pat. This is not a theocracy. Just like the “holy word of God” says thou shalt not worship other gods and yet this country allows people to do exactly. And just like the “holy word of God” demands that women who aren’t virgins on their wedding day be stoned to death and yet that would get you sent to prison here. The very founding of this country was a violation of the “holy word of God.” If you don’t like that, perhaps you should go to Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, where they really do enforce such barbaric religious edicts.
