Following a story on New York passing marriage equality, Pat Robertson on The 700 Club warned that God will destroy America just like God destroyed Sodom, saying that “there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived.” Robertson previously feared that America was turning into Sodom, and he claims that “we’re heading that way as a nation” and the marriage equality law in New York will further instigate God’s fatal judgment.

Jimmy I find it interesting that he is on the ABC Family network. Great family viewing.

Cora Judd (corajudd) | 163 comments Yeah - let's use the Bible as a source of morality;

The Sodomites merely "wanted" to rape the angels. But to protect his angel-guests from them, Lot offered his young daughters instead. In what way is that better than legitimizing gay marriage?

MadgeUK Once 'no civilisation in history' rejected slavery Once 'no civilisation in history' gave the right to vote to women. Once 'no civilisation in history' gave rights to anyone not of the ruling class. Once Pat Robertson would have been imprisoned for treason. And so on.

Jordan Broussard (jordancolby89) | 3 comments I kind of feel sorry for the guy, brainwashed at such a young age and all through his up bringing. He should read Chuck Palanuik's book, "Survivor".

MadgeUK Yes, he might even be missing out on being a really happy gay:).
