Televangelist Pat Robertson has chided students protesting Chick-Fil-A's opposition to gay marriage.

Students in at least 30 colleges and universities mostly in the South have started petitions to close Chick-Fil-A eateries on their campuses after CEO Dan Cathy conceded that his company financially supports groups opposed to gay marriage and called gay rights activists “arrogant” for defying God.

Speaking on the 700 Club, Robertson, presuming the students are gay, said they should either “bring forth a baby” or shut up.

“It's a chicken sandwich. It's a piece of white meat chicken between two pieces of white bread. It's also a milkshake. Now we're going to go have demonstrations over that? But you know something, I was reading today in Leviticus, which is the law of the Old Testament, but it lays out the reasons why the land will vomit out its inhabitants and it goes through a category of stuff we are calling Constitutional rights: killing babies, offering them to Moloch, and it says it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman. It's what it says. That is the moral law that God set forth and now we've got people at a university petitioning because somebody said I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I'm saying; until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth,” said Robertson.
