Pat Robertson: History Will Reverse Itself To Punish Gay Marriage Law

Zombie hate turd Pat Robertson has issued his Official Statement regarding New York’s new gay marriage equality law, and it is not pretty. Is everybody ready? Here it is: history’s immutable cycle of birth and decay and the periodic rise and downfall of each and every human civilization is hereby canceled, because from now on, owing to the New York gay marriage law, all the 100% straight-mandatory civilizations will get to stay, and the non-gay-hating civilizations will perish forever. 

From Right Wing Watch:

“We’re heading that way as a nation. In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, ‘what’s going to happen to America?” Well if history is any guide, the same thing’s going to happen to us,’” he predicted.

Pat Robertson seems to think that the Aztecs, the Romans, the Ottomans, the Mongols and the Native Americans were all pretty gay, otherwise they would still be here. [Right Wing Watch]

      He's Dead inside, Robo.

      If its any consolation, he is dead. But just inside.

      My first thought: "Isn't he dead yet?"
      My second thought: "I hate him with the white-hot heat of a thousand burning suns!"

  • hagajim

    When did marriage get co-opted by Christians? Last I checked it was originally set up to provide stability and wealth accumulation, well before Christianity ever existed. Stupid fucktards. Besides – the gayz should be able to have the opportunity to be as miserable as the straights.

    • tessiee

    • GOPCrusher

      Great band name?

  • Billmatic

    The Romans were very gay. They were also child molestors. And people wonder why the Catholic Church coddles boy touchers…ancient tradition, yo.

    • SorosBot

      The Romans were actually just as homophobic as Americans were until recently; it's the Greeks who loved boy-touching, and most people mistakenly apply that to both ancient cultures.

      • Billmatic

        There you go again SorosBot, hell bent on destroying the world through facts and humanitarianism.

      • Fare la Volpe

        True. The Romans only tolerated boy-touching if it was a Roman citizen touching his slave. And then only if the Roman was on top during the rape.

        Otherwise it'd just be obscene.

      • HistoriCat

        Oh, well the Greeks. You know they had all of that elitist "learning". Except for the Spartans of course. They were real men's men – you know? After all – that's what it looked like in the movie 300. Wasn't it Allen West who spoke approvingly of the movie and the manly men portrayed therein?

        • SorosBot

          The Spartans had very manly, tough soldiers, who were encouraged to fuck each other to bond.

      • WhatTheHolyHeck

        Well, the Greeks structured it mostly as a part of a more complex mentor/trainee relationship, which ended when the student reached maturity and (usually) married a woman.

        Hey, look, the Greeks are still around! Unless the ancient gay is responsible for their current debt crisis.

        • Rotundo_

          Pat is probably thinking about their going from empires to "just countries". He either is ignorant or omitting the whole "costs of maintaining an empire" which had a whole lot more to do with the empire surviving long term. The whole "murkin sepshunalism" thing has been a nice run, but thanks to poor planning and greed it's done. The asians are where the money and power reside these days. Then they'll sputter out and it will be the roaches turn for empire. Though they seem to have a pretty good foothold already.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      The Neaderthals were totally gay. That's why we Cro-Magnon dudes got all the hottest chicks. So Pat's like, totally right, on this one.

    • zhubajie

      Check-out Plato, on how the most important part of your son's education was the right older man as lover!

  • Goonemeritus

    One he is full of shit most civilizations didn’t even think it was that strange. And two you could just as easily say there has never been a civilization that embraced televangelists and survived.

    • Sparky_McGruff

      No civilization has ever embraced Pat Robertson's Age-Defying Shake and survived. Just sayin'.

    • ShaveTheWhales

      Even more simply, there has never been a civilization that has survived forever.

  • Terry

    Without his TV show, old Pat would be writing his manifestos on pieces of cardboard taped to his old broken down car and driving around town all day to spread the word.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Well, I guess if we're doomed anyway, I may as well go out and have some gay sex.

    • johnnymeatworth

      Good move, I think Pat gets down to the Chain Drive around 9 or so every night.

      • Fare la Volpe

        Then he snorts a line of K over at the Cock Pit, shimmies down the pole at the Man Hole, and finishes out the night with a rousing game of "who's in my mouth?" down at the Tight End.

        • johnnymeatworth

          And then tomorrow night is Uniform Night at the Iron Bear. God really DOES work in mysterious ways!

  • PeaceWithHonor

    No civilization has ever survived, regardless of who they're fucking.

    • mumbly_joe

      That's the thing that gets me. As far as I can tell, wouldn't it be every bit as accurate to say that no civilization that has refused to accept as an equal and equally valid variation of human sexuality has ever survived, either?

    • Swampgas_Man

      The dinosaurs were totally gay.

    • GOPCrusher

      Pat Robertson will not survive, and I highly doubt he's doing any fucking.

      Not fucking sepulchural enough.

    • Swampgas_Man

      Wasn't that a spaghetti western, "A Town Named Fist"?

  • Ducksworthy

    Pat, regarding Sodom and Sodomy, please tell us how Lot managed to reproduce after his wife was turned into a salt shaker (no offense meant to any surviving shakers).

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Ain't them the ones that make the nice hand-crafted wood furniture?

    • Dudleydidwrong

      Lot's wife became useful with the invention of the margarita, so Lot was able to impregnate her once her work at the local cantina was finished for the evening.

    • mavenmaven

      Not a happy answer, but I guess one that's ok with most of Robertson's followers- he impregnated both his daughters. "uh, but at least he weren't gay"

      • elviouslyqueer

        Well, the complete answer would be "impregnated both his daughters after they got him stinking drunk." But you're right, because "Getting dad drunk and then incestuously raping him" just screams wholesome family values.

    In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, has survived.

    Fuck you and your Amerikkkan exceptionalism.

    • SorosBot

      NO NO lalala I can't hear you America will last forever and it will always always be the most powerful and bestest country in the world~!

    • Pithaughn

      If the gay don't get you then the imperialism will. Pat does not understand how to determine cause and effect. There were plenty of "civilizations" that were neutral regarding who played with who under the blankets, but there are no civilizations that survived as imperialistic adventurers. The US style of imperialism is sold to us as the one true way to be imperialists, but to the folks where the rubber meets the road? The new imperialist is the same as the old imperialist. I doubt the rebel fighters in Libya give a rat's ass about the status of gay marriage in NY. However, the tacit US support of Quaddafy all these years is something they will never forgive us for.

      And I grew stong
      And I learned how to get along
      And now you're back
      From outer space,
      I just walked in to find you here
      With that sad look upon you're face,
      I should have changed that stupid lock,
      I should have made you leave your key,
      If I'd known for just one second
      You'd be back to bother me.

Someone guesses that maybe an animal was crossing the road and the driver swerved to avoid it. And then there's Pat Robertson, authoritatively declaring that the accident was God's punishment for the driver getting a blowjob from a stranger in a parking lot five years ago. One world, different planet.

      OT for everyone else, but so T for you, baby. I am reading a book about Americans in London in WW2-of course I am- and there is an amazing description of the Negro soldiers and how they were treated by us Brit women, who found them to be " polite, soft-spoken and self-effacing, that is , much like the British themselves" There is a quote from a wonderful Englishman, working-class-natch- ' I don't mind the Yanks, but i don't care much for the White fellows they've brought with them".

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

        My Dad was one of those Negro Yanks, an Artillery Sergeant in an (of course) all-black unit. He fought in the Battle Of The Bulge, and I think family legend has it that he was kissed by de Gaulle during some kind of victory review. He wrote my mother some very lovely, formal, rhyming poems while he was over there; I found them in his office when I was a teenager. I wish I still had them, but they're buried in a box somewhere in some siblings' basement now, both parents having passed away.

        • Limeylizzie

          My Dad fought at Al-Alamein having joined up in 1939 when war was declared, he was 19, fought throughout Europe, had many, many sexytime encounters and met my Mother when he was nearly 40 and she was about 22.

        • Limeylizzie

          You should try and find those poems, you must be very much like him.

        • samsuncle

          Chet, I had an uncle that was a tank driver in the Battle of The Bulge. I remember him talking about it and crying one Christmas Day. Turned out it was to be his last Christmas.

    "In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. "

    So, that's what happened to the Third Reich.

  • SheriffRoscoe

    If I recall from the story of Sodom, Lot should have marched his daughters out to be gang-banged by the crowd of homos so as to appease merciful almighty penis-obsessed God. That's so common sense to an evangelical like Brother Pat.

    Mr. Magoo will not bring me down today. Athens and Europe and China and Michele Bachmann, maybe, but not Pat.

  • mumbly_joe

    You seem to have forgotten the equally Biblical traditions of women being forced to marry their rapists, guys marrying their brothers' widows, people getting their best friends killed in order to make it with their wives, and also too men offering their daughters to be gang-raped in the streets, and then later impregnating both of said daughters.

    Traditional family values!

    • anniegetyerfun

      Hey, that sounds a bit like that shariah law that I keep hearing so much about!

      (Actually, shariah law, as horrific as I find it, does not instruct women to marry their rapists. So, there's that.)

    Is it true that Pat Robertson, Larry Craig, Mark Foley and James McGroovy all get together for "poker parties" three times a week at that "special house" on C Street in D.C.?!! Apparently, Weiner, Spitzer, Schwarzenegger and Lee attended a couple of times, but, well, they just weren't into it.

    Your god is fake and operation a scam. You should have been imprisoned decades ago for fraud.

    I don't care about homosexuality. I want to hear more about angel raping. Is that from an Arlo Guthrie song?

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    But how does he explain the French?

    • zhubajie

      I don't what he says about the French, but a few years ago he accused the Scots of being 100% gay, because of kilts (and because a scam involving a Scottish bank didn't work out). Most Scots had not heard of him before that.

    Herder and flock, they love that analogy. The sheep don't know where the good pasture and clear water is, so they love the shepherd who leads them. I guess they just gloss over the part where the shepherd fires up the Weber to grill some lamb chops that have been marinating in garlic, rosemary, lemon juice and olive oil, every other day.

    Speaking seriously for a moment, I am an ancient historian and archaeologist. I can assure everyone that civilizations are very, very, sturdy. Like Sequoias and bristle-cone pines, they out last the millennia. Moreover, all the familiar virtues and vices always flourish. This is what the theologians call "total depravity": morals never get worse, never get better. There are only variations on the theme over time.

  • zhubajie

    The oldest surviving written documents, on clay, 5, 000 years old, include professional moralists whining about how morals have declined, that things were better in the 'good old days,' etc.

  • zhubajie

    Professional moralists like Pat Robertson (and a mosquito cloud of others) need to keep their donors in a frenzy at all times, so that they keep donating without thinking. But if Pat, et al., condemn popular sins, like gluttony or avarice, they'll lose them. So they concentrate on "sins" that don't actually tempt many people — like gay sex.

  • Negropolis

    There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality.

    What about the ones that behind-closed-doors embraced it?

    Honestly, what kind of filth is this? Do they honestly belive that if you don't acknowledge the existence of the ghey that it someone innoculates you against God's ever-present wrath? Do they honestly believe that Christian God's ever-present, x-ray vision can't see into closets?

    Pat's so far in the closet, that bastard's finding decades old Christmas presents.

  • Neoyorquino

    Sodom disappeared from the face of the earth, too. Ezekial 16:14 "Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy." (Just sayin' . . . )
