Pat Robertson: Impeach Eric Holder for ‘Elevating’ Sodomy Above Religious Freedom - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-02-26 at 2.27.58 PM

In response to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s declaration that state attorney generals are not obligated to defend state laws banning same-sex marriage, televangelist Pat Robertson called for Holder's impeachment and resignation.

Said Robertson:

“What we’re seeing now more and more is the rights of homosexuals, the practice of homosexuality, sodomy, consensual sodomy, is being raised and elevated above the rights of religious believers and that is terrible,”

Right Wing Watch reports that Robertson also defended state bans on same-sex marriage, saying the issue "has nothing to do with limiting homosexuals, it has to do with giving religious people the right to practice their religious freedom freely."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

A similar "gay discrimination isn't discrimination" argument has been the go-to talking point among right-wingers in Arizona and Kansas in regards to legislation that would allow religious-based discrimination against gays. Supporters say these bills are simply meant to protect religious liberties and even help protect the rights of LGBT citizens.

  1. Pat Robertson longs for the good old days when "religious freedom" meant you could burn heretics at the stake.

  2. 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!

  6. 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?

  7. I need to get my sodomy punch card - 1 free with six!

  8. Jesus preached love and not hate. America is the land of the free. Two concepts that Pat and his fellow "Christians" can't wrap their heads around.

  9. 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...

  10. who opened the door to his crypt and let him out?

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. I agree with you @SeanMaloney: This vile old pig just needs to die!

  17. 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. 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.
