Pat Robertson Thinks Gay People Will Go Extinct Because They Can’t Reproduce

On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson received a phone call from a viewer asking him to weigh in on her church’s policy of forbidding members from dating or marrying anybody, which has made said members very frustrated because they are all getting older and would prefer not to die alone.

Is she a Shaker? Is it some kind of cult? We don’t know! And the reason we do not know is because instead of making sure that this woman is not in some bizarre cult, Pat Robertson decided to relate this to the gays, and how they and this church will go extinct from not reproducing. As one does, when one is Pat Robertson.

“You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce,” said Robertson. “You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce. Same thing with that church, it’s doomed, it’s going to die out because it’s the most nonsensical thing I’ve heard in a long time.”

What? Huh? How does he think the gay people who are here now came to be? Does he think they just appeared out of nowhere? Or that they were born of a jackal? I am deeply confused. Or rather, Pat Robertson is deeply confused and I can’t quite figure out how he got to be that way.

To boot, a church that prevents its members from marrying or reproducing could still technically not die out if people keep joining up. I mean, there are still Shakers around. Three of them, to be exact. In a village in Maine. Ostensibly, new people could decide to become Shakers if they were so inclined. [RightWingWatch]
