Pat Robertson seems to have missed the media spotlight. To get back in the glare of the overhead lights he's decided to attack The Gays. Again.

And, what does Pat have to say this time? "Gays don't want to get married, they want to destroy marriage."

Truth be told, advocates of marriage equality are amongst the most passionate advocates for marriage. Robertson and others like him claim to be "pro-marriage," but they're really just anti-equality.

Darn, how did Pat get a hold of our secret eeevil plans! Michael, did you give him the combination to the safe?

I would love it if we were as organized/united as they fear we are. I would love it if we could create a center around our GLBT civil rights struggle.

Apparently he's ignoring (on purpose, I sure) of the recent study in MA that the divorce rate has gone down since same-sex marriage took place. Gay marriages actually strengthen straight marriages. He's just pissin' in the wind.

It is on purpose. Because this man has only hate in his heart.

This is just Pat's usual crap he does not have a thing new to say and probably has not in about 20 years. There is a couple in my Louisiana church who went to California and got married. They made a special trip to do so.

All the fundies say exactly the same thing and back up their beliefs with the same misquoted, out of context, Bible verses. They did the same thing with Civil Rights. Pat Robertson is old news and on the last day he is going to be real shocked over who is in heaven with him. He will also get an outhouse behind the mansion of a gay person because he will get NO heavenly rewards---well maybe a plastic shed.

The only thing that would get Pat the level of publicity he wants would be if he came out of the closet or reversed his viewpoint to a Christian attitude of acceptance of all believers in the family of God. His viewpoint is against the Bible, the walk of Christ and the message of salvation for all who come to him.

Of course then he would lose money and that is what he is really about. He wants to keep his "lifestyle". Hate brings in the dollars and hating GLBT is the one that brings in the money nowadays.

My Dears! Heaven for climate, Hell for society!

How does Gay Marriage destroy Traditional Marriage? Just look at Kelly and Rosie are they not breaking up just like in the Traditional Marriage? Giving Gays the right to marry has no bearing on the Traditional Marriage. It just meas that they will have to go through divorce court also! That is if Gays follow what happens in the Traditional Marriage!

Barak Obama - "He said that he did not support same-sex marraige, drawing sustained applause from the audience of about 3,000, calling marriage "a sacred union" and saying, "God is in the mix." LA Times August 17th, 2008

Obama is in bed with the cultist right.
