Pat Robertson: God Will Destroy America Due To Allowing Marriage Equality

Pat Robertson warns that God will destroy America for allowing marriage equality:

I think we need to remember the term sodomy came from a town known as Sodom and Sodom was destroyed by God Almighty and the thing that they practiced was homosexual activity and even they tried to rape angels who came down there, so that’s the kind of people they were. But beyond that, Jesus when He spoke of Sodom He didn’t say anything about the homosexuality he talked about just the fact that business was as usual until God decided to destroy it. And He sent an angel down there and He said to Lot and his family, ‘get out now because I’m gonna destroy this whole area.’ That’s where sodomy came from, we use the term sodomy and it means Sodom. What’s it like? We’re heading that way as a nation. In history 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. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, “what’s going to happen to America?” Well if history is any guide, the same thing’s going to happen to us…

It’s not a pretty world we live in right now, and we need all of God’s help we can get. And I don’t think we are not exactly setting ourselves up for His favor.

    He is right that no culture has embraced homosexuality in the past like we currently have. While I differ with Pat Robertson on many things, it does surprise me that we’ve gone from talking about civil unions to legal gay marriage all in the course of a few years.

    No, he is wrong about no other culture embracing homosexuality to the degree the United States has. For example, gay marriage has been legal in the Netherlands since 2001. It has also been made legal in several other countries. With same-sex marriage only legal in a handful of states, the US still lags behind many other countries.

    Robertson has neglected to figure in the time lag factor on these things.  Doesn’t he know that America’s moral downfall can be precisely traced back to financial deregulation?

    I think he means contemporary western culture, not the culture of a particular country. Gay marriage just makes me uncomfortable in a way civil unions do not. I think redefining marriage so dramtocally will have profound effects on our country.

    Ron Chusid says:

    He did refer specifically to America in his comments.

    See David Frum’s post in which he admits he was wrong about the deleterious effects of same-sex marriage (which I linked to in this post). Over time more people will see that there is no great need to impose their views upon others and there will be greater acceptance. Polling is showing a dramatic increase in acceptance of marriage equality and it is only a matter of time.

    He is right. No civilization has ever embraced homosexuality and survived… but thats because NO civilization has EVER survived. The ancient greeks, romans, celts, and many other all embraced homosexuality in fact it was the norm and they did surive for thousands of years. But guess what actually brought down Rome. Christianity did, and its fanatical followers who turned away from the gods that served them for centuries and followed lunatics like Theodosius, and Constantine.
    China, India, Japan, Egypt. These are all cited as ancient civilizations but guess what. All of them have been overthrown many times and their current rulers have no connection to their ancient ones.
