Pat Robertson Sidesteps Question About Polygamy In The Bible By Ranting Against Gay Rights
Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who asked: “In the Old Testament men had many wives and it seems like it didn’t go against God. Where does it say in the Bible that man should have only one wife?”
Robertson responded that the viewer should consider moving to Utah or Saudi Arabia, and then insisted that the Bible condemns polygamy. However, he admitted that “somehow” many biblical figures, such as Solomon, were polygamists. Rather than explain the inconsistency, he joked that Solomon must have “taken a lot of vitamins, that poor old man,” and launched into a diatribe against gay rights.
“I said when they make these rulings that they are making about homosexuality, when they are making these rulings about other sexual practices, it won’t be long before they cancel the laws for bigamy,” he said. “It was said by Rick Santorum in the United States Senate, surely enough those laws will come down and surely enough they will. Everything goes.”
