Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday
warned that the Supreme Court's ruling allowing gay couples to marry
may lead to the legalization of pedophilia.
Robertson attacked the high court in
the course of answering a question about why God would allow
tragedies such as child abuse to happen.
“The time is going to come in
America, the Supreme Court said homosexuality is a constitutional
right, now they've said homosexual marriage is a right, then they're
going to say polygamy is a constitutional right, then they're going
to say polyamory is a constitutional right, then they're going to say
pedophile [sic] is a constitutional right,” Robertson
“You mark my word. They're talking
about transgender and sex change and all of this stuff. We have lost
our mind, collectively, and it's going to get worse and worse and
worse and worse. Trust me,” he said.
Robertson also claimed that “sex with
little babies” is accepted in Islam: “There is no such thing as
pedophilia in that religion.”
