The Christian right in this country likes to pretend that they just opposed “redefining marriage” but they don’t care whether people are gay or not. Their opposition to the ruling overturning state sodomy laws proves otherwise, and sometimes they come right out and say it. Pat Robertson to the white courtesy phone, please.
Take, for example, today’s program, in which a Christian Broadcasting Network reporter profiled the debate in Kenya over President Obama’s support for LGBT rights and Kenyan Bishop Mark Kariuki’s anti-LGBT efforts. In an interview with CBN, Kariuki called on Kenyan leaders to reaffirm the country’s laws making homosexuality a crime punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment, and urged Obama to reverse his support for LGBT rights before it leads to America’s destruction.
Robertson, who, like Kariuki, believes that LGBT rights will lead to divine wrath against America, said that “those Africans have got it right.”
“One wishes that the president of the United States would listen to some of his fellow Africans, cousins, to what they have to say because they speak truth and they speak wisdom,” he added.
