LEXINGTON, VA — (05-15-19) — Televangelist Pat Robertson had the nerve to preach that passing the pro-LGBTQ Equality Act, will destroy America.

The 80 year-old televangelist made the remarks last Tuesday, saying that the upcoming pro-LGBTQ rights measure could ruin ‘the sanctity of America.’

“If you want to bring the judgment of God on this nation, you just keep this stuff up,” said Pat Robertson on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Robertson used a biblical reference to justify his opposition to the Equality Act, which would for the first time outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The U.S. Congress is expected to vote soon on the reintroduced measure and will likely pass on a party line vote. Even though the bill is sure to pass the house and possibly the U.S Senate, anti-LGBTQ president, Donald Trump, is against the bill and said he would veto the measure.

“I was reading in Leviticus where it says because of these things the land ‘will vomit you out,’” said Robertson in the video below compliments of Right Wing Watch. “Vomit you out. I think God will say, ‘I’ve had it with America if you do this kind of stuff, I’m going to get rid of you as a nation.’” said Robertson.

Pat Robertson is no stranger to expressing his homophobic ideology and should not come as any surprise to anyone, especially his followers.

Thankfully many in the religious community do not share his Robertson’s homophobic views. In fact, a large interfaith coalition of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others gathered in Washington last Tuesday to support the Equality Act.
