— Pat Robertson (founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network), speaking on his show The 700 Club. Robertson has a history of spouting dangerous or nonsensical rhetoric, which is homophobia dressed up as religious preaching, and as such has waded in on the Indiana RFRA controversy, Right Wing Watch reports.
Robertson told his viewers that “It doesn’t matter what custom you’ve got, it doesn’t matter what holy thing that you worship and adore, the gays are going to get it.”
Because, apparently, wanting a bakery to make a cake for a gay wedding or being protected against a restaurant owner throwing you out for being transgender is the same as wanting to have sex with animals.
“They’re going to be saying, ‘You’re intolerant, you’re intolerant, you’re trying to mitigate against these nice people who like dogs, what’s wrong with you?'” he continued.
Pretty sure we won’t be, Pat.
