Pat Robertson: 'Sick At My Stomach' That NFL Backs LGBT Rights

Pat Robertson once again expressed outrage over the NFL’s strong opposition to an anti-LGBT bill in Georgia today, telling “700 Club” viewers that the league’s stance has made him “sick at my stomach.”

Yesterday, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed the bill, which would have created broad protections for businesses that openly discriminate against LGBT people.

“This whole thing is absolutely ludicrous,” Robertson said. “This is the greatest nation on earth. We have degenerated beyond measure. And what are we fighting about? These things about transgender and so forth? I mean, who cares? This kind of thing is just absurd and we’re making a big civil rights thing.”

Robertson was outraged that “the NFL, supposedly a bunch of man-size warriors,” are now saying that they “want homosexuals to be our heroes and we’re going to fight for them” and “won’t go to wherever the law says that Christians have a right to speak out.”

“The whole thing is absolutely absurd and it makes me sick at my stomach,” he said.

While Robertson claims that people no longer have the right to speak out against homosexuality or LGBT rights, anybody in America can still say whatever they want about the matter, as Robertson demonstrates nearly every week on his show.
