Televangelist also says: ‘In Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death’

Televangelist Pat Robertson renewed his attack against gays this week when discussing a Colorado baker being sued for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.
‘What would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death,’ Robertson said on his 700 Club television show. ‘So Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there.’
He added: ‘But we don’t have that in this country here so that’s the way it is.
Robertson then went on to call gays the ‘oppressors’ against ‘people with religious views’ because of their increasingly successful fight for equality when it comes to marriage, the workplace and the military.
He also compared same-sex relationships to abortion because ‘both of them deny the reproduction of human species.’
Robertson, 84, has a long history of anti-gay comments.
Last summer he claimed that that gay men in San Francisco try and purposely spread AIDS by cutting people with a special ring when shaking hands.
He had previously spoken out against gay adults being involved in scouts and lumped them together with pedophiles. He also had claimed that gay people can change their orientation just as murderers, rapists and thieves can change, had said gays are ‘possessed,’ and that it is possible to ‘un-aquire gayness.’
