Pat Robertson: ‘The Devil Uses Abortion, Gay Rights to Steal our Babies’

Aging televangelist Pat Robertson is at it again. Earlier this month he warned that watching horror and porn movies could lead to demon possession. Today, he told his 700 Club audience that Satan is behind the gay rights movement in a bid to “deny the reproduction of the human species.”

Robertson spoke his mind after one of the 700 Club segments featured interviews by pro-‘religious freedom’ fighters, including a Denver baker whose refusal to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding and proponents of the failed Arizona legislation aimed at allowing businesses to deny service to the LGBT community.

After watching the segment, Robertson warned that the tables had turned and the gay community had become the oppressors of Christianity.

“I think we have to recognize what I said a few years ago, at that point homosexual marriage was condemned, homosexuality itself was considered a pathology,” he stressed. “Now those that are practicing that activity have turned and become the oppressors of those who hold deeply-held religious points of view, the tables have turned.”

He continued by calling same-sex relationships “a meaningless exercise because it doesn’t go anywhere,” and theorized Satan was tricking the gay community because it limited God-ordained procreation.

“What is it about gays? What is it about abortion?” he asked.  “Have you ever thought why they’re on the forefront right now? Both of them deny the reproduction of human species.”

This, he added, is part of Satan’s attack on humanity and “we have to realize where the attack is coming from because it is definitely an attack.”

“The Devil is trying to say, ‘I’m going to destroy your progeny any way I can. If you will kill your babies, that’s fine, I’m with you; if you will deny the chance of having babies, that’s fine too; but I want to destroy your opportunities to reproduce,’” Robertson warned. “It’s a very serious thing and we’re not talking about it.”
