Televangelist Pat Robertson on Wednesday argued that Jesus would have never baked a wedding cake for LGBT couples because it was more common to stone homosexuals during biblical times.

After a CBN report on a Colorado baker who supported an Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against LGBT couples, Robertson reflected on how Jesus would have responded if a gay couple asked him for a wedding cake.

“I think you’ve got to remember from the Bible, you look carefully at the Bible, what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabitate together, they would have been stoned to death,” he explained. “So, Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake, nor would he he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there.”

“But we don’t have that in this country here,” the TV preacher lamented. “So, that’s the way it is.”

Robertson opined that homosexuality was considered to be a “pathology” only “a few years ago,” and now LGBT people were “the oppressors” of religious people.

“What is it about gays, what is it about abortion?” he asked. “Both of them deny the reproduction of human species.”

“It’s as if the devil is saying, ‘I’m going to destroy your progeny any way I can, and if you will kill your baby, that’s fine. I’m with you. If you will deny the chance of having babies, that’s fine too, but I want to destroy your opportunities to reproduce,’” Robertson continued. “As a society, we need to realize where the attack is coming, because it is definitely an attack.”

“Jesus said, ‘I came to give life, and the devil want to steal, kill and destroy,’” co-host Wendy Griffith agreed.
