According to televangelist Pat Robertson, by not expressly condemning homosexuality at the federal level, the United States is setting itself on a course towards being “vomited out” by God.
Citing Leviticus 18′s condemnation of homosexual activity, bestiality, and incest, Robertson plainly stated that it is an “abomination” for people to engage in homosexuality. “Those who do that, in the Old Testament, were stoned to death,” he added.
“The nations who were doing these things were vomited out of the land and the land vomited them out,” he warned, seemingly suggesting that the United States is on a path to become such a nation that condones “abominable” sexual behavior.
“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this homosexual marriage decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this,” he continued. “Well, the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights it talked about this was an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.”
He asked his 700 Club viewers to take out their Bibles and read it for themselves. “Which is going to take precedence: the Supreme Court of the United States or the holy word of God?” he asked in conclusion.
