“You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce.… You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce.”
— Pat Robertson, host of Christian radio program 700 Club and founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, speaking to a caller who asked for advice after her church banned dating and considered interest in the opposite sex to be a sin. Right Wing Watch reports that notoriously anti-gay Robertson used the call to once again spout nonsense regarding LGBT people, having previously claimed that gay people are terrorists and comparing transgender people to a castrated horse.
Robertson clearly fails to understand that in order for gay people to die out, heterosexual couples would have to stop reproducing.
