Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday
condemned President Barack Obama's announcement in support of gay
marriage, media watchdog RightWingWatch.org
Following a The 700 Club segment
about the president's recent shift from supporting civil unions to
full marriage for gay couples, Robertson weighed in with his opinion.
“The bottom line is a male is
equipped in a particular fashion and a female is equipped in a
particular fashion and the union of the two brings forth children.
The union of two men doesn't bring forth anything except disease,
apparently, and suffering. And the same thing of the union of two
women. It does not lead to procreation,” Robertson told his
“It's a holy union ordained of God,”
he said of heterosexual marriage.
“And for these politicians to make it
a political football, it makes you sick. Obama is a shameless
panderer to special interests and this campaign is enough to make you
sick to your stomach.” (The video is embedded in the right panel
