The LGBT community will stop at nothing to win acceptance, Pat Robertson said somberly on The 700 Club on Monday, and are willing to undo many of the nation’s institutions to do it.
“I think you have to understand, ladies and gentlemen, that the gay community wants an affirmation of the way they do sex,” Robertson told his viewers. “They’re willing, first of all, to destroy the church, if need be. Then to destroy the military if need be, then to destroy marriage if need be, then to destroy businesses if they need be.”
Robertson also speculated that if there were 100 million Christians living the U.S., then a “maximum” of 2 percent were gay men and 1 percent were lesbians.
“Is that minority going to destroy all the foundations of the morality of the majority?” he asked.
A Gallup poll conducted in February 2013 concluded that every state in the U.S. was within two percentage points of the overall national average of 3.5 percent LGBT population.
“While the variation in LGBT identification across states is relatively small, findings do suggest some evidence that the variation is not entirely random,” the study said. “Social climates that promote acceptance of or stigma toward LGBT individuals could affect how many adults disclose an LGBT identity.”
Robertson also speculated on Monday that evangelical Christians would put themselves in harm’s way attempting to help homosexuals get into heaven.
“We are people who love,” he said. “And yet now, your love is going to put you in jail, because the people who are going to hell through their lifestyle think, ‘Well, we want to be affirmed.'”

Rep AOC helped Bernie Sanders turn out ‘the largest crowd drawn by any candidate’: report

‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.
"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.
"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.
Here’s what Trump and his defenders are hiding whenever they insist that something is ‘perfect’
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," civil rights activist and MSNBC contributor Maya Wiley pinned down what it means when President Donald Trump and his associates describe something as "perfect" — a word they have frequently used throughout the Ukraine scandal.
"The problem we have here ... is there is no sunshine, there is no light being shone on what happened here. And one of our questions should also be, why not?" said Wiley. "Every time we hear the word 'perfect' out of the White House — it was a 'perfect' call with the Ukrainian president, now Mick Mulvaney is saying [Trump National Doral] was a 'perfect' place [for a diplomatic summit], serving the needs — every time we hear 'perfect,' and we kind of get the suggestion that they're worried and they've got something to hide."
