Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday blasted “gay activists” for forcing out Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich after it was discovered that he backed the California Proposition 8 effort that stripped LGBT people of their marriage rights.
“Here this man at Mozilla, Eich, had given $1,000 about six or seven years ago — $1,000 — to a proposition,” Robertson explained. “And somebody came around and said, ‘Will you contribute?’ And he said, ‘Here’s a grand, get off my back.’ I mean, that’s probably all that it amounted to.”
“But instead of that, he’s being forced out by gay activists, who said that was hate speech to say that the union between a man and a woman is marriage — that’s hate speech.”
The TV preacher continued: “Well then, the Bible then is full of hate. If that the way it is, then God almighty is a hater. If that’s the way they want to define it. And I, of course, don’t agree.”
Robertson said that this is the reason that the Internal Revenue Service should not force non-profit groups to disclose donors.
“It’s an absolutely outrage,” he insisted. “This whole thing is an outrage. And it’s time that people, ladies and gentlemen, wake up!”
