In a statement that makes you wonder why he concerns himself with gay people at all, televangelist Pat Robertson said yesterday that gays will die out because they don’t reproduce.
Robertson made the comment on his TV program, The 700 Club, in response to a viewer who was upset because her church won’t allow (heterosexual) dating.
“You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce,” he said. “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.”
Robertson, of course, ignores that gays and lesbians have children by a variety of means and that most LGBT people were born of heterosexual parents. Watch the clip below, courtesy of Right Wing Watch.
