TV preacher Pat Robertson is blasting President Barack Obama as a “shameless panderer” for his support of equal marriage rights for same sex couples.
Appearing on ABC’s The View on Tuesday, Obama spoke about his opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which imposes a federal ban on same sex marriage.
“Congress is clearly on notice that I think it’s a bad idea,” Obama said. “This is going to be a big contrast in the campaign because you’ve got Governor [Mitt] Romney saying we should actually have a constitutional amendment installing the notion that you can’t have same sex marriages.”
During Tuesday’s edition of CBN’s The 700 Club, Robertson responded by declaring that Obama’s position was “enough to make you sick at your stomach.”
“The bottom line is a male is equipped in a particular fashion and a female is equipped in a particular fashion,” Robertson explained. “The union of two men doesn’t bring forth anything except disease, apparently, and suffering. And the same thing of the union of two women.”
“It’s a holy union ordained of God and for these politicians to make it a political football, it makes you sick,” the televangelist continued. “Obama is a shameless panderer to special interests, and this campaign is enough to make you sick at your stomach.”
“He’s losing in the polls and The New York Times shows he down to Romney, and Romney is going ahead. More and more people say, ‘Look, this president is, you know, he’s playing every card known to man but he’s not playing the right one.’ … As long as he plays with these tangential issues, he’s going to lose.”
On Monday, Robertson gave presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney his most vocal endorsement yet — even though CBN lists the candidate’s religion as a cult.
“Looks like the people who were worried about his Mormonism, that crowd is diminishing somewhat,” Robertson remarked. “The question is if you have two candidates, you don’t have Jesus running against somebody else. You have Obama running against Romney.”
