Pat Robertson: Gay Marriage Will Lead to Legalized Polygamy, Bestiality, and Pedophilia

Only in Pat Robertson‘s world does a question about abortion lead down a slippery slope to bestiality.

On The 700 Club yesterday, Robertson was asked about the recent misleading videos slamming Planned Parenthood, but he used the opportunity to express his disgust about the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality and how it would lead to polygamy and sex with animals:

[The Supreme Court has] said abortion is a constitutional right. They have said homosexuality is a constitutional right. They’ve said now homosexual marriage is a constitutional right.

Watch what happens. Love affairs between men and animals are going to be absolutely permitted. Polygamy, without question, is going to be permitted. And it will be called a right

Robertson later agreed with his co-host that marriage equality would also lead to legalized “relationships with children.”

I’m tempted to explain how consent works, but that may be too complicated for Robertson to handle. Needless to say gay marriage has been legal in some states for several years now and there’s no evidence of society disintegrating into a giant all-mammalian orgy.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
