Televangelist Pat Robertson lectured against the Uniformity Act on Tuesday, saying the star LGBTQ rights measure would demolish “the sacredness of America.”
“If you need to expedite the judgment of God this country, you simply keep this stuff up,” he said on the Christian Telecom Network.
Robertson, 89, utilized a scriptural reference to assault the bill, which means to ban separation dependent on sexual introduction and sex personality. The Law based controlled House is required to cast a ballot soon on the reintroduced measure and will probably endorse it. President Donald Trump restricts it.
“I was perusing in Leviticus where it says in light of these things the land ‘will upchuck you out,'” Robertson said in the clasp above, shared by Conservative Watch. “Regurgitation you out. I figure God will say, ‘I’ve had it with America in the event that you do this sort of stuff, I will dispose of you as a nation.'”
Robertson has a past filled with making homophobic remarks, so his flame and-brimstone rage should come as no surprise.
Many in the religious network don’t share his perspectives. An interfaith alliance of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others accumulated in Washington on Tuesday to help the Fairness Act.
