Robertson’s Advice to GOP Leadership: Say “[Foley] does what gay people do so don’t worry about it”
On today’s broadcast of the 700 Club, religious right icon Pat Robertson commented on the growing scandal over Congressman Foley’s email and instant message exchanges with congressional pages. Robertson, sporting his trademark squint and grin, telecast his best advice to GOP leadership on how not to lose votes over the unfolding scandal:
“Republicans have formed a circular firing squad and they’re firing away” said Robertson. He called the internal furor in the GOP “insane” and added that the best thing they could do would be to say “well, this man’s gay; he does what gay people do and so don’t worry about it.” Robertson also claimed that the scandal would not cost Republicans votes because “the church people understand forgiveness, they understand sin.”
