Pat Robertson: Satan wants to 'destroy your opportunities to reproduce'

On the March 26, 2014 edition of The 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again took issue with Gov. Jan Brewer's veto of Arizona's "right to discriminate law."

Back in the good old days, said Robertson, members of the LGBT community would have been stoned to death.

"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," said Robertson. "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."

There are countless commentators and comedians out there who would point out, at this point, that Jesus traveled around with twelve other men. Not to suggest that Christ was gay, but he no doubt heard enough rumors to know better than to presume to know why two other men might be sharing a roof.

Naturally, Robertson goes on to insist that it's all Satan's fault Robertson can't throw rocks at gay people until they're dead in America.

"The Devil is trying to say, 'I'm going to destroy your progeny any way I can'," said Robertson. "'If you will kill your babies, that's fine, I'm with you; if you will deny the chance of having babies, that's fine too; but I want to destroy your opportunities to reproduce'. It's a very serious thing and we're not talking about it, and we need to as a society, we have to realize where the attack is coming because it is definitely an attack."

With this statement, Robertson appears to be trying to resurrect one of the American Taliban conspiracy theory that gays are trying to turn everyone else gay too.

Only around 2% of the population identifies as LGBT. Humanity's opportunities to reproduce are in no danger at all.
