Right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson has claimed that “terrorist” same-sex couples are forcing Christians to marry them or else face jail.
The right-wing TV host, who runs the Christian Broadcasting Network, made the claim on his show, The 700 Club.
He said: “It’s one thing to want to persuade somebody to believe like you do, that’s what Christianity is about, to bring the Gospel message and say this is good news and we’d like you to accept it.
“It’s something else to take the arm of the government to force somebody to do something that is against, contrary to their religion, and that’s what these homosexuals are trying to do.
“They are trying to force people who are Christians to marry them or else face jail, to make cakes honoring them or else go to jail and give their sermons over and divulge their innermost thoughts or go to jail, that’s the kind of thing we’re dealing with.
“These people are terrorists, they’re radicals and they’re extremists.”
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.’
The Pope, Billy Graham, and Pat Robertson died in a plane crash and showed up at the pearly gates. St. Peter was surprised “Oh dear! We weren’t expecting you and your quarters aren’t ready. We can’t take you in and we can’t send you back!” so he called Lucifer and said “I have three gentlemen who are ours, but their places aren’t ready yet. Could you put them up for a couple of days? I’ll owe you one.” The Devil reluctantly agreed but after a short time, called heaven. “Pete, this is Lucifer. You have to come get these three guys.
This Pope guy is forgiving everybody, the Graham fellow is saving everybody, and Robertson has raised enough money to buy air conditioning!”
