Pat Robertson still hasn't given up on trying to convince his followers that non-discrimination policies are somehow discriminatory against Christians.
Today, Robertson and his Christian Broadcasting Network continued their crusade against reality by filing a report that falsely claimed that having a "biblical view" on sexuality has been "criminalized" in San Antonio, Texas.
According to Robertson, San Antonio "has gone off the rails" by adopting a non-discrimination ordinance which includes protections for sexual orientation and gender identity, and claimed that the new law would lead to Christians being thrown in prison.
"This means that if you speak out about your deeply held religious beliefs they will put you in jail or brand you some kind of a class 3 felon," Robertson claimed. "This whole thing is outrageous and that city council should be replaced."
Once again, however, the provisions which Robertson claims will allow Christians to be jailed for speaking out against homosexuality are completely nonexistent. The ordinance, which can be viewed in full here, contains no language referring to anything as illegal or punishable by the law, period.
What Pat Robertson really means to say is that he's upset that San Antonio will no longer allow himself and other faux Christians to pretend members of the LBGT community are subhuman and have no rights.
It just sounds so much better to insist he's being persecuted instead.
