It’s a pretty slow day in the news (which, for the type of content I use, is a pretty happy thing). But if the lord doesn’t provide content, Pat Robertson sure will. He thinks gay people have become the oppressors…because they’re getting closer and closer to being treated like everybody else.
“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’s claim that Jesus would never have encountered a same-sex couple is a matter of debate.)Robertson added: “Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have to recognize what I said a few years ago, at that point homosexual marriage was condemned, homosexuality itself was considered a pathology and now 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.”
Robertson also goes on about how the reproduction of the human species is at stake. So while gay people bumping hips without calling it marriage hasn’t stopped straight people from bumping hips in or out of wedlock, somehow letting the gay couples get married will stop the straight people from fucking. Right.
