Robison: Silence on gay marriage is like silence on allowing ‘pedophiles to play in public parks’

A video appeared on Monday on Bishop Harry Jackson’s “Grow With Hope” YouTube page featuring a message recorded by James Robison, presumably for this upcoming Defense of Marriage Summit.

In it, Robison makes the case for keeping the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman by saying that remaining silent on this issue “would be like stepping back when suddenly the public has decided to allow pedophiles to play in the public parks and there was nothing we could do about it because we refused to take a stand:”

Watch:

Robison is an American televangelist and the founder and President of the Christian relief organization Life Outreach International.

  1. Who the f*ck is he to say that. He knows nothing about being gay or unless hes trying to hide something!

  2. I am so tired of these douche-bags continuously comparing us to pedophiles. This is the best they can do. They have no real argument. Their inability to actually put together a cohesive, factual argument without name calling is a good thing. But in the mean time, they are really pissing me off.

  3. I think that, at this point, these kind of extremely and willfully ignorant people are making themselves look bad. And not us.

  8. Just because these ministers say something doesn’t mean it’s true. They’re just delusional and their wrong views will create bad karma for them in the long run.

  10. As far as I’m concerned, if he wants to keep looking like a jackass, he can keep looking like a jackass. It makes their side look more and more ridiculous.

  11. Why are these “men of the church” worried about gay rights. Shouldn’t they be worried about real issues like battered and abused women, starving children, people addicted to vices and themselves.

  13. Since when does being gay automatically make you a pedophile? No group is without its wrongdoers, but to make a blanket statement like that is idiotic. So if one left-handed person becomes a serial killer then being left-handed makes you one, too, right? Ridiculous!

  16. Since the vast majority of pedophiles are straight and the vast amount of married couples are straight – could there perhaps be a connection? …. See how easy it is to draw asinine conclusions.

  22. Obviously some homophobes can’t fathom the concept of consent and THEY need to stay away from children, perverts!

  23. Matthew 19:11&12 Jesus Christ said gays are born that way out of their mothers womb

  24. I am SO TIRED of trying to explain to these piss-dumb motherfuckers that gay couples consist of two loving, consenting adults! It’s not the same as preying on the innocent! They never get it!!

  25. I wonder how people like this plan on explaining their blind hatred when they meet their maker. Gays are nowhere in the bible compared to pedophiles.
