Pat Robertson once again made eye-roll inducing comments today about gays saying that they'll eventually "die out", reports Right Wing WatchThe former southern baptist minister's comments come from today's episode of The 700 Club when Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who attends a church whose members aren't allowed to date, leaving fellow church goers frustrated that they can't enter relationships with people in the congregation. Robertson responded with this little gem of a quote.

Said Robertson:

"You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce. You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce. Same thing with that church, it’s doomed, it’s going to die out because it’s the most nonsensical thing I’ve heard in a long time."

The more intriguing question here is when is Pat Robertson going to "die out"? Watch, Pat Robertson's nonsense, if you can bear it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ireland To Vote On Same-Sex Marriage In May - VIDEO

The Irish government yesterday announced that a referendum on same-sex marriage will take place in May 2015, reports The Journal.

Although an exact date has not yet been set, it is thought the vote may be held in the first week of the month.

Calling for a respectful campaign from all sides, Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald said her officials would now begin work on the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment.

A recent Irish Times poll found that 71 percent of people intend to vote in favor of gay marriage.

Welcoming the announcement, Gay and Lesbian Equality Network chair Kieran Rose said:

“We do not take the outcome of the referendum for granted. Despite the strong support in the polls currently, we know that we will need every single possible vote on the day in order to win the referendum.”

Backed by government parties, the referendum was announced earlier this year by Prime Minister Enda Kenny. Kenny made headlines this month when he visited Dublin's Pantibar for Christmas drinks.

In what was seen as an opening salvo on what is likely to be a highly divisive campaign, the Catholic church in Ireland has released a manifesto outlining its opposition to same-sex marriage.

Wrestling Legend Hulk Hogan Says Wrestling Has Dropped 'Barbaric Mindset' About Gays

Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 2.39.50 PM

Wrestling legend and former reality star Hulk Hogan said in a recent interview that the wrestling industry has moved past the "barbaric mindset" which once made it unsafe for athletes to be openly gay reports Huffington PostInterviewers asked Hogan in an in-person meeting about the spate of professional athletes, including World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Darren Young, who have come out in recent years.

Said Hogan:

"At least for me -- and I can only speak from my heart -- I've got people all around me who are gay, so it's not an issue with me. I think the whole world feels like that now."

Hogan's optimistic thoughts about the state of LGBT individuals around the world is far from accurate however, various areas of American sports are seeing a rise in gay athletes coming out. Jason Collins continued his career with the NBA after coming out in April 2013 and Michael Sam, GQ's Man of the Year, entered into the NFL as well, albeit suffering setbacks. In the sport of wrestling, WWE's Darren Young revealed his sexual orientation just last year. Hogan never viewed homosexuality as abnormal and met several gay wrestlers around the world.

Said Hogan:

"There are several wrestlers in Japan who are gay. I've just never looked at it as anything weird. It was normal."

Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 2.45.42 PMWWE now partners with GLAAD, formerly known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, on their programs including the "Be a Star," anti-bullying campaign. Wrestler Pat Patterson, a longtime wrestler and friend of Hogan's, came out this year in June on the WWE reality series Legends House, tearfully sharing his long-standing fear that news of his homosexuality would end his sports entertainment career. However, Hogan has known of Patterson's sexuality since 1976.

Said Hogan:

"I knew Pat was gay back in 1976, when he helped me start wrestling. Whenever I see Pat, I give him a big hug and kiss. He's my guy!

"Back when Pat was wrestling, he was afraid to be who he really is -- or was meant to be -- because of all this stuff he inherited from society. You're supposed to be this tough wrestler.' 'You're supposed to be this good-looking, platinum blonde champion who goes out and dates the best looking women.' 'You're supposed to be this.' 'You're supposed to be that.' But that's not true! Pat Patterson is supposed to be who he's meant to be, not who people think he should be, if that makes any sense."

Although Hogan believes the wrestling industry is now re-educated against stereotypes, 1980s wrestling was rife with harmful stereotypes about "savage Africans," and "evil gays." Watch Hulk Hogan take on the "Adorable" Adrian Adonis, wrestler Keith A. Franke's flamboyant gay caricature and persona, in the 1986 WWF Title bout, AFTER THE JUMP...
