Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday
explained how gay rights destroy societies.
Robertson made his comments after a The
700 Club segment on conservative activists in the republic of
Georgia who accuse the United States and the European Union of
attempting to force Georgia to accept such rights, including marriage
rights for gay and lesbian couples.
Robertson said that America's
commitment to LGBT rights abroad is putting the nation at risk.
“The truth is, from what we
understand in history, there hasn’t been one nation in the history
of the world that has openly embraced [the] homosexual lifestyle and
begun to practice the homosexual lifestyle that has endured,”
told viewers. “Every one of them has gone down. Every single
one of them. Once rampant homosexuality takes place, then people
don’t take care of their children. They aren’t concerned about
the next generation. They’re concerned about physical pleasure and
the activities surrounding this lifestyle. They aren’t planning
for the future and the country goes to pot.”
“Right now it’s kind of in the
balance, it’s kind of interesting, but the fact that the European
Union and the U.S. [are] trying to impose this lifestyle on a little
country like Georgia that wants to stay orthodox is incredible.”
“You look at the Book of Revelation
and it says, ‘Mystery Mother of Harlots, you have made the world
drunk with the wine of your fornication.’ And you say, who is that
‘mystery woman?’ Well, more and more, this great nation of ours,
the U.S. of A, is becoming – to take on that role. I don’t know
if we intend to but that’s what’s happening. We’re making the
nations drunk with the wine of our fornication and God brings
judgment on a country that does that,” he added.
