    Someone let crazy ol’ grampa out again! He tries so hard to have religious freedom–i.e., superstition, thoughtlessness, and bigotry–reign as the only right someone can have. He doesn’t want to share; he wants to live in a fantasy world.

    We need to be even more proactive. States have an obligation to protect ALL their citizens equally. Justice Garcia stated so today in his Texas ruling.

    “Any state law involving marriage or any other protected interest must comply with the United States Constitution.” p2

    ANY STATE LAW. ANY OTHER PROTECTED INTEREST.

    Anti-discrimination civil rights laws that don’t include sexual orientation as a designated class are themselves discriminatory by exclusion.

    LGBT have been designated a suspect class deserving of heightened scrutiny by several federal justices.

    The legislation effort in Arizona and others like it around the country won’t stop until we make them stop.

    Gramps needs to be relegated to the back room where he can look at the purty diamonds and other gems he brought back from Africa illegally in exchange for the work of fiction he passes off as “salvation” for well over 25 years or more. Meanwhile he can count the donations that the followers of his superstitious tripe send him and the 700 Club can upgrade to —- oh I don’t know Kirk Cameron…..

    Forcing people who don’t buy into your superstitious tripe to live under the yolk of your religious beliefs by codifying those beliefs into law is the exact opposite of religious liberty, Pat.

    As for the elevation of sodomy, no one needs to up-sell sodomy. Sodomy sells itself. It’s flying off the shelves.

    Paying taxes for Vietnam, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afganistan was a violation of my Christian ethics and Pat Robertson et. al. didn’t give a tinker’s damn. Pat Robertson is about as Christian as Westboro Baptist.

  6. Bill says

    Robertson was born in the wrong country at the wrong time. He wants to live in a theocracy. His idea of letting people “practice their religion” seems more like letting them burn heretics and any others who don’t go along with the program at the stake.

    He also doesn’t understand that U.S. federal law preempts state laws. If people have a right under federal law, the states can’t take that right away. So much for his childish criticism of Eric Holder.

  7. Hansel Currywurst says

    If I’m reading that right, he differentiates between sodomy and consensual sodomy, but condemns them both equally. Doesn’t that require blaming a/the victim the same as a/the perpetrator in the non-consensual variant?

    In NO way does this infringe upon anyone else’s Religious freedoms. It DOES RIGHTFULLY infringe upon people’s (entirely imagined) right to impose their own Religious views upon others.

    The whole idea of a ban on gay marriage is just a way to defend an entitled feeling of moral superiority against imagined slights
    . No one is going to make a straight person get gay married OR force a priest to marry gay people in the church. Seriously stop being stupid and/or ridiculous.

    Why are the Bible-trumpeters always referring to the Old Testament, the Torah, as their justification for being homophobes? Why not try out the NEW Testament and find out what Jesus said …. the golden rule, for example. “Do unto others as you would have done to you.” Robertson and his ilk simply believe LOUDLY they are the be all and the end all of morals. Wonder what his wife feels when he crawls into bed? Mind blows!

    Why is Robertson so completely obsessed with what other people do with their butts? He really must seek professional help and spiritual guidance to overcome this addictive, compulsive thinking. Won’t someone please help this man?

    What is wrong with all these religious fascists that the only thing they think two people could have in common is sex? Do they not know about love, trust, caring, etc? It says a lot about them: THEIR marriages must be nightmares…

  12. SoLeftImRight says

    Yawn! Same ol’ BS argument, Pat? Show me one, just one, instance of religious discrimination enabled by the allowance of marriage equality in any state where it has prevailed. Crickets? Exactly. You have no argument. The only argument Holder is offering is a 100% sound Constitutional argument. You, on the other hand, have nothing.

    It’s sad that so many foolish people are still sending him money. However, by supporting him they are allowing him to broadcast his stupidity, hatred and bigotry and for that we should be thankful. Thankful because the more Robertson talks the more people he turns off to his brand of religious intolerance and that’s a good thing.

    Fool: I am opposed to elevator sodomy also so I’m sending Pat some money. No more homo sex in elevators!
    Pat: Thank you Fool. Let’s get all that homo sex behind closed doors.
    Fool: But elevator doors are closed.
    Pat: Yes, but they could open at any time, you never know. Send me some more money Fool.
    Fool: OK Pat, here’s another check. If elevator sodomy is allowed next we’ll have escalator sodomy.
    Pat: That’s right Fool. There’s sodomy everywhere I look.
    Fool: Never stop looking for sodomy Pat. God Bless.
    Pat: Thanks again Fool. But “god bless” don’t pay the bills. How about another check?

    There are many people on the left who would gladly impeach Holder for his war on terrorism antics but he has little to do with how the federal circuit courts are interpreting the DOMA ruling last year from SCOTUS. PR knows that Holder is a rightwing lightning rod, so he’s the one blamed, and his audience lives in a rightwing/religious media bubble where the only things on the radio and TV support this akimbo viewpoint.

  17. johnny says

    What most people don’t seem to realize is that Pat doesn’t really believe what he spouts.

    He’s simply saying the most controversial thing he can to get his DONATORS to send more love gifts.

    It’s all about marketing, folks. Pat just wants more money.

  18. JEFF YORK says

    Pat, you sweet ol’ demented preacher man, Religious freedom doesn’t run this country. We are not a theocracy, that’s only in, what’s left of, your fevered brain. However SCOTUS did okay sodomy a long time ago. In this, Holder has done nothing illegal.
