When asked about the five states that have now decided to let people have equal rights under the law by legalizing same sex marriage, the religious hate spewing bigot Pat Robertson never fails to make a giant fuckhead out of himself....
"You got polygamy out there. How can we rule that polygamy is illegal when you say that homosexual marriage is legal. What is it about polygamy that's different? Well, polygamy was outlawed because it was considered immoral according to biblical standards. But if we take biblical standards away in homosexuality, what about the other?
"And what about bestiality and ultimately what about child molestation and pedophilia? How can we criminalize these things and at the same time have constitutional amendments allowing same-sex marriage among homosexuals. You mark my words, this is just the beginning in a long downward slide in relation to all the things that we consider to be abhorrent."
Point 1 - Polygamy has as much to do with legalizing same sex marriage as it does with heterosexual marriage. That is, nothing at all. Marriage is a legal government sanctioned institution between two people. A large component of this is health insurance through employers. There is no movement to legalize polygamy, and there most likely never will be. Corporate America is certainly not going to be interested in the ramifications of legalizing polygamy.
Point 2 - What Bible is Pat reading? The Bible I've read has NO PROBLEM at all with polygamy. It's actually the most common form of marriage in the bible and is consistently condoned by God.
Point 3 - Bringing up bestiality and child molestation is an argument about same sex marriage just shows how INSANELY stupid you are. Pat is a jackass.
Point 4 - Was giving women the right to vote "the beginning of a long downward slide"? How about civil rights and ending segregation? What downward slide did that start? And yes, the Bible was used to justify keeping those discriminatory practices in play as well.
Pat Robertson is a hateful, evil, egotistical maniac. And the saddest part is that he is a millionaire with legions of followers all too willing to open their pocketbooks to support his mission of lies and hatred.
