Televangelist Pat Robertson says that LGBT students protesting Christian fast food chain Chick-fil-A at about 30 colleges and universities across the U.S. should “shut their mouth” until they can “bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on.”
During his Friday 700 Club broadcast, Robertson said he was outraged that activists were protesting “a piece of white meat chicken between two pieces of white bread.”
“I was reading today in Leviticus, which is the law of the Old Testament, but it lays out the reasons why land will vomit out its inhabitants and it goes through a category of stuff we are calling constitutional rights: killing babies, offering them to Moloch, and it says it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman,” the TV preacher explained.
“It’s what it says. That is the moral law that God set forth and now we’ve got people at a university petitioning because somebody said I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.”
Robertson added: “I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I’m saying; until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth.”
LGBT-rights advocates have been protesting the restaurant chain since Chick-fil-A founder Dan Cathy last month admitted to the Baptist Press that his company was “guilty as charged” of funding groups that oppose marriage equality.
