    If companies are people and people vote with dollars then the destination of the restaurant’s donations are open for public debate. It very well should be an issue as to where peoples’ hard-earned money goes after the chicken goes down their gullet. This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank. Watch the poultry be nailed to the cross and pierced by the spear of destiny at the hands of those devious cows on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-rollin-poultry-on-cross-chick-fil.html

    1) They always pick and choose which Leviticus scripture suits them and ignore all the rest
    2) why do they always equate “marriage” and “childbirth”?
    3) I’m still waiting for that big ol’ divorce outlaw to protect the sanctity of “traditional” marriage
    4) Isn’t he just one generation removed (barely) from marriage being about inheritance/property/money/land ??

    UGH – the desperation is palatable.

    Dear Mr. Robertson, by quoting from Leviticus and giving a stamp of approval to Levitical Law, what you are actually stating is that Christ failed in His mission on the cross, and that His sacrifice for “our sins” did not, in fact work at all. Therefore, He died in vain. Christ failed in His mission. He failed. He was crucified for nothing. That’s what it means for a Christian to cite Levitical law – that they’re still valid as Christ’s sacrifice did not “save us” from them.

    Sincerely, a f@ggot that actually studied theology so he could know more about your bible(s) than you do.

    STFU Pat- your 15 minutes ended several decades ago. How’s that harvest of bling from Africa working for you? Hardly seems equitable-
    A bad piece of fiction for the people on the African continent and planeload after planeload of diamonds and other precious gems from their ground.
    Praise Jebezuzzzz…..

    Seems like you’re adorning yourself with makeup old codger. I’m also sure that you have a multitude of indiscretions of Levitical sin. Just STONE HIM already. Oh that’s right they don’t stone each other for their sins – only those they choose to judge outside of their religion.. those they shouldn’t be judging at all!

    Go back to your pulpit where you can piss in your own sandbox…

    ONce again, if nobody paid attention to him he would go away. Isn’t he the guy that said Mighty Mouse was a cokehead? Seriously. Ignore it and it will go away. His opinion holds no relevance to anyone but people who already feel that way. NEXT

  7. bravo says

    In truth, I have had some bowel movements that felt like childbirth. But in this hedonistic culture, I done flushed my baby down the toilet. Which is what I will do with Pat’s words.

  8. Matt26 says

    Why they choose this one, because they’re straight, so it is an easy target to them.
    PR seems to think a LOT of gays and the thing he thinks we think all the time. What a disgusting hateful and sad “man”.

  9. Homo Genius says

    well someone above quoted the fabric thing but IIRC there is the one line about laying with men but SEVERAL regarding women and menstration. God has lots of issues with that!

    Regardless, I did have a butt baby but we immediately gave him up to Moloch so I cant show Pat.

  10. EchtKultig says

    LMFAO!
    As I predicted a few months ago…it’s going to be a crazy-freakin’ period leading up to the election. The reich-wing is literally “losing it” because they are terrified gay hatred might not be as effective a wedge issue as it once was. Mind you, I’m not saying it isn’t still somewhat effective. The dipsh-ts who showed up for CFA Appreciation day amply demonstrated that.

    These closet cases like Robertson clearly sit around and spend about 25% of their time obsessing about gay sex, or some other kind of sexuality they consider “deviant” and associate with it. It’s becoming more obvious even to the non-LGBT, and to the dwindling pool of people who consider themselves moderate Republicans.

    I haven’t spent my life in the gay ghettoes of Weho, Chelsea & Dupont like some of you. You’d be amazed how many people involved in fundie religion seem like major closet cases. I did some work in audio installation years ago for a couple megachurches and almost everyone who worked for these places seemed like a closet case. I would be comfortable assuming 1/3rd of the membership of some such congregations are closeted. For the South/rural America to adequately deal with this sociological timebomb is going to be like birthing a baby via the wrong bodily passage, but it has to happen and it will happen. Remember that little 15 year old twerp on youtube who was aghast at how many of his friends were coming out. That’s clearly a phenotypic expression a long established but long-suppressed genotype.

    I actually have a socio-biological gene flow theory of why this is a striking peculiarity of American rural life, but I won’t go into it. It would take several paragraphs…but is ripe territory for a multidisciplinary study involving evolutionary biology, history and sociology.

    What a goose.
    My nephew got married last week. He and his new wife were high school sweethearts. They’ve been living together for about 10 years. No kids. Don’t know if any are planned or not.
    In any case, marriage is about love and trust and commitment, not kids or even sex for that matter.

  12. emjayay says

    EchtKultig: Interesting post. Go ahead – expound on your theory! Ted Haggard comes to mind, and I suppose others who were dragged out of their closet.

    Littlekiwi is right, real theologians see Jesus as superceding all the letter of the old laws and replacing them with a more modern for the time message of loving mankind and honoring God. You know, like he said.

    Ole Pat must have one of those redacted versions of Leviticus since he actually consulted it but only saw one or two sentences.

  13. Iwontgrowup says

    It’s funny how he quotes only the parts of liviticus that suit his argument at any given time, the remainder are to be brushed aside.
    Denying us the right to marry based on religious or biblical teachings will not pass the constitutional smell test. My partner of over 35 years and I will probably never see it in our life times as we are both in our 60’s. But you youngsters will eventually see it, it is inevitable. When it happens those of us from the “Stonewall Generation” will be there with you in spirit. Have patience boys and girls it will come.

    So, if this gas bag hypocrit actually read Leviticus, he would see that the eating of lobster, crab or shrimp is described with the same word as two men lying together is… a word that means “ritually unclean”. Rather than his derogatory fixation on a body area that resembles him, maybe he should focus on boycotting Red Lobster and the seafood industry for its biblical hedonism. Otherwise, the mouth shutting he yearns for should be his own.

  15. JellyBean says

    The scholars I have read say the phrase in Leviticus was because God wanted His chosen people to propagate and fill the world. He killed one man because he spilled his seed by pulling out. Also, notice God said nothing about women.

    My theory is that now the world is over populated and God is making more people Gay so we can get the population back to a manageable size. I think that the world would be amazed at the number of Gay people if we all came out.

  16. Bernie says

    and these lovely statements are coming from a man of the cloth? These statements are not very Christian and in fact fan the flames of hate. This of course is the type of shooting from the hip statements, we should expect from Robertson.

  17. jexer says

    No heart. No brain. And yet his gums are still flapping and crap keeps coming out.

    There are few deaths I would be tactless enough to celebrate… but his is certainly going to be one of them.

  18. simon says

    This old sh*t talking about the Old Testament and “killing babies”. The same book also mentioned God told Moses to kill everyone in the city he conquered including babies and women. Of course they raped the women before killing them.

  19. Artie_in_Lauderdale says

    For Christians, Little Kiwi’s comment is spot on; for the huge secular portion of the population, Robertson’s rant is comic relief. But let me offer a translation. Robertson and other Christianist morons are freaking out this election season because gay civil rights are only being used as a wedge issue by Democrats—in our favor. Any Republicans who are uncomfortable with equality are quiet as a church mouse. I don’t hear one tiny little peep of protest about the advance of gay civil rights from either Romney or Boehner and the Congressional Republicans. This sea change brings us full circle from the election of 2004, when the Republicans used marriage equality as a wedge issue AGAINST us. This cultural revolution in national politics within the space of eight years accounts for Robertson’s public fits. Thorazine is in order for the increasingly unbalanced Mr. Robertson.

  20. John says

    Littlekiwi, great comment!

    He’s not just cherry-picking. He’s undermining the underpinnings of Christian belief. This confirms my belief that the version of the Bible that anti-gay fundamentalists read was edited by Satan. Which might also explain why so many also believe the Bible was originally written in English.

  21. lookyloo says

    Gay women can give birth. So, there. Argument over.

    It’s just so odd that so many anti-gay people (mostly men) fixate on gay men and anal sex (I assume that’s what Pat was referring to). It’s like they totally forget about gay women, their biology, and probable sexual activities.

    Come on Pat, let’s make innuendo about lady on lady sex.. Wait? Is that a sin? Did God say anything about women laying with women? If not, there’s half the argument right there. Let’s give gay women the right to marry RIGHT NOW since they can have babies and God didn’t say it’s bad for them to scissor.

    I know my gays, and I know my internet.

    A video making dirty use of a Kewpie doll is only days away from being posted on the internet.

    The Old Testament Bible also says its an “abomination” to eat shellfish or pork, but I don’t hear the Rev. Robertson denouncing people who eat lobster or ham.

  24. Diogenes Arktos says

    Two common comments on TR:

    “[I]f nobody paid attention to him he would go away.” (quote from above)

    As accusations of Hitlerite behaviour are overdone, I hate to bring him up here, but the German intelligentsia thought the same about Hitler.

    “If straights thought about love and not sex, we’d have marriage equality.” (paraphrased)

    Those straights who do think marriage is about love already support marriage equality. The problem is those straights who do think only about sex. They are in acute denial of many facts — or rather they deny our facts and postulate their own contradictory pseudo-facts. They think that marriage is all about babies. To be charitable I’ll put it in the past tense: it used to be believed (from the Bible) that women should be barefoot and pregnant. As such, they look at the correct biological fact that same sex souples cannot bear children. (We will ignore the fact that heterosexual couples sometimes cannot either.) They simply cannot conceptualize that LGBT babies can come from heterosexual unions. They tend to believe that no one is born LGBT. All LGBT folk, therefore, have been recruited (or abused) by LGBT folk. Obviously I could go on and on…

    Hey Pat, here’s an idea. Until you follow every verse in Leviticus like it’s the word of god instead of just cherry picking you can shut your mouth.

  27. andrew says

    You have to excuse poor Pat. He actually believes that the creator (if there be one) of this billion gallaxy universe wrote or inspired people to write the primitive collection of myths, contradictions and made up bloody history that people call the bible. I know that in 2012 it is hard to believe that some folks believe that.

  28. andrew says

    Oh, and a little bit of gossip: Did you know that Pat’s wife was pregnant with their first child before they got married? Sadly they didn’t have abstenance only classes taught by the Palin girl back then.

  29. P. Springer says

    So sick of these people using the Bible as an actual source of moral and legal code, as if it were actually the word of God. God did not write the Bible. Men did. Straight men obviously. Any minority will always lose out, for a while. It took Blacks forever to gain their rights…
