For Pat Robertson, Levitical Laws Apply To Gays But No One Else
Televangelist Pat Robertson regularly cites the Book of Leviticus as proof that homosexuality is a grave and evil offense, doing so as recent as Monday. But it seems that homosexuality may be the only area in which Robertson still thinks Old Testament admonitions still apply.
The host of “The 700 Club,” who has gotten used to explaining away the Old Testament’s dictates on violence, slavery and polygamy, fielded a question today about whether Christians must obey strict Levitical laws about menstruation.
Robertson laughed off the prospect and seemed unaware of the menstruation passage’s existence, saying that Christians don’t need to obey Leviticus and only need to love God and their neighbors as Jesus said.
Unless you are gay, of course, in which he case you need to abide strictly by Leviticus.
(Hemant Mehta adds: "Leviticus 18:19 — just three verses before the infamous anti-gay passage — mentions menstruating women: 'Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.' I guess he skipped that line during his reading.")
