Watch: Pat Robertson on the end of civilization

Pin it

You didn't think you'd get through the excitement of gay marriage becoming legal in New York without hearing at least some unhinged backlash from religious groups, did you? No, that would be way too nice. So, reliable crazy Pat Robertson has stepped up to the plate, explaining that this advance in civil rights actually means that the end times are coming for our civilization. There's even talk of angel rape! 

In the above clip, Robertson drops the following nuggets of wisdom: 

I think we need to remember the term sodomy came from a town known as Sodom and Sodom was destroyed by God Almighty and the thing that they practiced was homosexual activity and even they tried to rape angels who came down there, so that's the kind of people they were. But beyond that, Jesus, when He spoke of Sodom, He didn't say anything about the homosexuality. He talked about just the fact that business was as usual until God decided to destroy it. And He sent an angel down there and He said to Lot and his family, "Get out now, because I'm gonna destroy this whole area." That's where sodomy came from. We use the term sodomy and it means Sodom. What's it like? We're heading that way as a nation. There's never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. There isn't one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, "What's going to happen to America?" Well, if history is any guide, the same thing's going to happen to us.

Well, there's no arguing against that kind of airtight logic. At least America had a good run while it lasted!
