Pat Robertson: 'Ungodly' Gay People Have 'Destroyed Marriage' And Christians Who Don't Discriminate Are 'Mixed Up' - VIDEO

Old windbag Pat Robertson was perturbed earlier this week by the notion that Christians would be better served by reeling in the anti-gay hate.

Robertson - who believes all gay people are "recruited" or molested - was replying to a 700 Club viewer who questioned why some Christians believe they have the right to “refuse service to others because they don’t agree with their lifestyle," reports Right Wing Watch. The viewer added that such actions won’t “bring them closer to Jesus.”

However, Pat said the viewer was "mixed up" and insisted that Jesus himself would refuse service to gay people rather than participating in an “ungodly lifestyle.”

He then went on to reference the good book:

“If somebody gives you meat and doesn’t say anything about it, then you eat the meat; but if he says ‘this is meat offered to idols,’ then you don’t eat it because you don’t want to participate in idol worship.”

Thanks for clearing that up, Pat.

In a separate clip, a caller asks Roberson advice on what to do with a gay son who is planning on having a child with his husband. 

“This so-called lifestyle — I just can’t believe it," Robertson exclaimed. "They have tried to destroy marriage.”

Last month, Robertson said that catering for same-sex weddings is like servicing man-dog weddings.

Legal Case Against Irish Bakery That Refused to Bake 'Bert and Ernie' Cake Supporting Gay Marriage Begins: VIDEO

Legal proceedings against a bakery in Northern Ireland for refusing to take an order for a cake with the slogan “support gay marriage” began yesterday, reports RTE.

Based in Newtownabbey, Ashers Baking Company is named after a verse from the Bible which refers to "Bread from Asher.”

Customer and gay rights activist Gareth Lee is supported in his action by the Northern Ireland's Equality Commission (NIEC).

Opening the case against Ashers, Robin Allen QC said the baker’s objections on religious grounds was not lawful and as unjustifiable as a postman declining to post a letter.

Noting the publicity surrounding the case, Allen said that “law must not be determined by those who shout loudest,” adding “this is a case about commerce and discrimination.”

The NIEC alleges that the stance of the company was in breach of legislation. Initially, the commission asked Ashers to acknowledge that it had breached legislation and offer "modest" damages to Lee. However, when the baker refused, the commission proceeded with the legal action.

Arriving at court ahead of the hearing, Ashers owner Daniel McArthur said he was putting his trust in God.

The hearing is expected to conclude today.

Irish Government Clarifies There Will Be No 'Right to Discriminate' Following Marriage Referendum Vote

Joan_Burton_crop

The Irish government has indicated that there will be no religious opt-out clause for businesses that do not want to provide goods and services for same-sex weddings, reports the Independent.

A referendum on same-sex marriage will take place on May 22nd.

Labour leader Joan Burton (right) was responding to a call by the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, for a religious “right to discriminate” for business people who had "problems of conscience" about gay marriage.

Although religious ministers will be allowed to refuse to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies, Burton was emphatic that this could not be extended to business people who refused to sell goods or services to gay couples.

Earlier this month, a priest in the west of Ireland broke ranks with the Catholic church's anti-gay agenda by announcing that he will vote in favor of same-sex marriage.

In December of last year, the Catholic Church in Ireland released a manifesto explaining exactly why it is opposed to marriage equality.

Phyllis Schlafly Calls on States to Ignore Pro-Equality Supreme Court Ruling - VIDEO

Fischer

Speaking on wingnut Bryan Fischer’s Focal Point yesterday, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly (below right) said that state governors should “refuse to enforce” a Supreme Court decision striking down bans on same-sex marriage, reports Right Wing Watch.

Schlafly also urged President Obama and his successor to direct the Attorney General to defy the Supreme Court ruling, insisting that the highest court in the land cannot undo laws that have stood for “several thousands of years.”

Schlafly“We just cannot live in a country where one judge or even five judges are able to change the law of our land that goes against the laws of most of our states and we’ve had for several thousands of years about the definition of marriage, that is simply not our form of government.”

Schlafly is not only an anti-gay activist - she has also been fighting the feminist movement for over 40 years.

GOP Budget Amendment Upholds Religious 'Right To Discriminate' Against Gay Couples: VIDEO

On Tuesday, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) introduced an amendment to the Congressional budget endorsing the position that businesses and organizations should be allowed to use taxpayer funds to discriminate against married same-sex couples, reports Human Rights Campaign.

InhofeThe amendment dictates that “Federal agencies do not discriminate against an individual, business, or organization with sincerely held religious beliefs against abortion [or] that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.”

Inhofe’s proposed amendment is seen as an attempt to undermine Barack Obama’s 2014 executive order requiring all federal contractors to adhere to LGBT nondiscrimination protections.

In a statement, Human Rights Campaign’s Government Affairs Director David Stacy said:

“With nearly 60 percent of Americans supporting marriage equality, the Senate should reject Sen. Inhofe’s effort to turn back the clock on equality.

“Senator Inhofe’s long record of opposition to LGBT rights is already notorious, but the question this week is whether the U.S. Senate rejects his extreme, anti-equality agenda.

"Sen. Inhofe isn’t even in touch with his own constituents. The Oklahoma legislature rejected more than a dozen bills aimed at harming LGBT people. Fair-minded Senators from both parties should reject this amendment.”

In 2012, Inhofe and Roger Wicker (R-MS) introduced a bill prohibiting same-sex marriages on military bases and allowing military chaplains to opt out of conducting such ceremonies.

AFA Warns SCOTUS in Full Page 'Washington Post' Ad: Remember That God Invented Marriage

AFA ad

Anti-gay group American Family Association (AFA) yesterday took out a full-page ad in the Washington Post to remind the Supreme Court that God is solely responsible for the creation, management and administration of marriage, reports right wing Christian news website OneNewsNow.

The AFA admonishes the highest court of the law in the United States to "remember whose idea [marriage] was in the first place.”

6a00d8341c730253ef013488e2f88d970c-800wiAFA president Tim Wildmon (right) - who has something of an obsession with military men taking showers - said:

"First of all, the U.S. Constitution does not address marriage; so it's left to the states to decide definitions for marriage – and the states have spoken.

“[Marriage has] forever been one man/one woman and it forever will be one man/one woman – according to nature, according to God, according to the Bible, and according to most religious traditions.”

The ad itself is pure right-wing scaremongering at its best, suggesting that marriage equality will be harmful to children and could bring on Armageddon:

“Will you bend what God designed merely to suit the desires of man, knowing that you do so at the expense of children, perhaps even civilization itself?

“[Supporters of same-sex marriage] would say by such a decision that mothers and fathers together are no longer relevant in the lives of children, and that religious expression about the sanctity and purpose of marriage would now become illicit.”
