Pat Robertson: 'Insane' To Discuss Transgender Rights While 'Facing Thermonuclear Annihilation'

Pat Robertson reacted angrily today to the Education Department’s finding that transgender youth are protected under federal anti-discrimination law, warning that the transgender rights movement is part of a larger push to undermine America.

“We are facing thermonuclear annihilation and what are we debating in America? What are we debating? Where a little kid goes to the potty. I mean, this is nuts, absolutely nuts. It is crazy,” he said.

“This whole thing is insane,” Robertson continued. “And for the United States of America to put the power of the federal government and all of its money and resources behind this transgender movement, it is just nothing short of insanity. And you ask yourself, ‘When do we get free from this nonsense?’ But it gets worse and worse and worse. This is liberalism run amok.”

The conservative televangelist then linked the issue to women serving in military combat roles, saying that women have lost their “honor” as they are no longer treated as “the weaker sex,” and to the collapse of “marital purity,” which he said will lead to the disintegration of society.
