The Democrats’ advocacy of same-sex marriage in this year’s party platform seemed to fluster Pat Robertson on Tuesday’s episode of The 700 Club, as he bemoaned the loss of the party formerly known as the party of “rum, Romanism and rebellion.”
“You have insulted the Catholic Church with your rules, you have insulted right-to-work states, you have insulted certain union groups with your stand on the pipeline,” Robertson fumed, not specifying how holding the party’s national convention in North Carolina – and bringing a reported $128 million to the state – constitutes an insult by the Democrats. “And now you’re going after God, it makes no sense but that’s what they want to do.”
Robertson also said he was “astounded” by the platform’s stance in favor of same-sex marriage, which was referenced several times during Tuesday night’s speeches on the convention floor.
“I don’t know what you label the Democrats now,” he said. “But it’s the party of gays, godlessness and whatever else.”

Trump promises America we will never see him again if Biden wins
President Donald Trump insisted he would withdraw from public life should he lose the 2020 presidential election.
Trump, who has been a public figure since he started appearing in tabloid stories in the 1980s, made the promise during a campaign rally North Carolina on Saturday.
"If I lose to him, I don't know what I'm going to do," Trump said, in comments that will stoke fears he may try to hold onto power regardless of the will of the voters.
"I will never speak to you again, you'll never see me," he vowed.
Trump was quickly ridiculed for his remarks. Here's some of what people were saying:
Trump threatens to call off 2020 election with executive order saying Biden can’t serve as president
With polls showing President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential campaign, the incumbent appears nervous that he might lose a fair vote.
At a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, Trump spoke for over 90 minutes.
In addition to vowing he will "fill" the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and accusations that Biden has performance-enhancing drugs injected in his ass, Trump threatened to call off the election by banning Biden from running.
Trump claims Biden is on drugs: ‘They gave him a big, fat, shot in the ass’
President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused Joe Biden of using performance-enhancing drugs.
The idea that Biden is appearing too smart doesn't give with Trump's simultaneous accusation that Biden is senile, but such is the state of the president's re-election campaign.
Trump added new delusions to his conspiracy theory during a Saturday campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
"They gave him a big, fat, shot in the ass and he comes out," Trump claimed as his audience laughed. "And for two hours he's better than ever before. The problem is, what happens after that."
