Pat Robertson: Democrats the ‘party of gays, godlessness and whatever else’

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch
Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Adding his voice to the faux-outrage that the 2012 Democratic National Platform, while having a section extolling religious faith as “a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history,” doesn’t include mentions of God, televangelist Pat Robertson on the 700 Club today skewered Democrats for representing only “gays, godlessness and whatever else.” “Same-sex marriage is in the platform, they want to go along with that as a right, I’m just astounded,” Robertson said.

Later in his commentary, Robertson said that after having “insulted” Catholics and labor unions, now the Democrats are “going after God, it makes no sense but that’s what they want to do.”

Watch:

Said Robertson:

Back in the 1850s or 60s there was a charge that one party was the party of rum, Romanism and rebellion. I don’t know what you label the Democrats now but it’s the party of gays, godlessness and whatever else. I mean, same-sex marriage is in the platform, they want to go along with that as a right, I’m just astounded.

[...]

They can’t defend it and you ask yourself, you’re going to go before the American people and that’s going to be the face they’re going to present to America. You have insulted the Catholic Church with your rules, you have insulted right-to-work states, you have insulted certain union groups with your stand on the pipeline and now you’re going after God, it makes no sense but that’s what they want to do.

  11. What a sick, sick mind this man has. I ALMOST feel some pity for him because anyone who has a mind that is that closed and is that certain that his way is the ONLY way to look at things, is, deep down, a very lonely, deluded and pathetic person.

  19. Hmmmmm – didn’t Robertson call Mormonism a cult because of the belief that an angel named Moroni brought the new Bible to New York in 1820 and gave it to Joseph Smith making the Protestant Bible obsolete? And isn’t this the same Pat Robertson who then endorsed Romney (a Mormon)? Calling Pat a hypocrite is an insult to hypocrites :0)
