Pat Robertson: Gay Marriage is a 'Death Wish' for the Democratic Party — VIDEO


Pat Robertson responded to the Democratic Party's decision to put marriage equality in its platform, calling it a "death wish", Right Wing Watch reports.

Said Robertson:

About 2% of the population are homosexual, 1% of the population is lesbian. That’s a tiny group and every time this initiative has been brought to the ballot where the people have a chance to vote they vote overwhelmingly in favor of traditional marriage. For the Democrats to go out on that limb, it just seems like to me that they are further alienating themselves from the mainstream of America. If that’s what they want to do, fine, but it will mean the death knell of their party, it seems like to me, and of course that’s what they’re doing but maybe they have a death wish.

  1. Just a thought... Mr. Robertson notes that a total of 3% of the population is gay or lesbian. I did some research and found out that the Jewish population is 2.1%
    So replace gay with Jew and suddenly his argument sounds horrid (which, of course, it is).
    And my belief is that religion is more of a choice than homosexuality. So at this point, I'd rather drop the race comparison and convert it to a religious comparison for those who believe that being gay is a choice. It'll make them choke on their words.

  2. Robertson is religious the way Elmer Gantry was religious. He is a bottom feeder who plays on superstitous people's prejudices in order to line his pockets. Fraud, liar, bigot. Wish there really were a hell this POS would toast in.

  3. He's like that old senile grandfather you have to check to make sure he hasn't gone out with his underpants on his head. Polling is in Pat, from this year not 1980, and you're wrong. 65% of the democratic party support marriage equality and rising by the day.

  5. Robertson pontificates on everything, but knows nothing. This is a man who --- when he was running for President in 1988 --- insisted that the Soviet Union had nuclear weapons in Cuba. Funny, nobody in our military "knew" that... because it wasn't true, and Robertson never backed-down from the claim even though President Kennedy had taken care of that little detail in 1962. But Robertson wouldn't know that because he was busy playing drunken playboy in the 60's before he found gawd (pre-echo of GW Bush).

  6. The only men who claim gay guys are only 2% of the population are the men whom no good looking gay man ever made the moves on.

    Sorry, but go find an attractive gay guy and ask him how men are open to cruising and being cruised. He'll probably chuckle and smirk "you mean some of them don't?".

  7. I think on this issue the old fool may be right.Whenever the people have been given the right to vote on marriage equality, they have voted it down. I think within 20 years the numbers will have shifted to favor marriage equality. That ain't going to help Obama and the dems in 2012.

  11. There is no such thing as a death wish, otherwise Pat Robinson and all the right wing Republicans and tea baggers would NOW be in the here after!

  12. The hate filled Christians are the ones with the death wish. They are the ones violating God when God said all men are created equal and to Love on Another.
