Pat Robertson Sticks up for Chick-fil-A, Says Gays Make People 'Feel like they are Unwelcome'

To mark “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” Pat Robertson chided gay rights advocates on the 700 Club today for protesting the restaurant chain’s anti-gay activism. He said that he predicted that a group, in this case the gay community, will move from the “fringes” to the mainstream of society but ultimately “turn on the mainstream,” making those “who are traditionalists feel like they are unwelcome, and that’s exactly what’s happening.” Co-host Kristi Watts in her reaction to the controversy said “the Bible talks about in the later days the truth becomes a lie and the lie becomes the truth, and that really is the essence of what we’re dealing with right now.” Robertson warned that “the gays have just gotten the media megaphone and they’re shouting” at Chick-fil-A’s CEO for his anti-gay statements, “is it going to get worse? I hope not.”
