Robertson: Gay Marriage Advocates, Following In Steps of Illuminati, Out to Destroy God and Family

Introducing a story on the 700 Club yesterday about the debate over legalizing same-sex marriage in France, Pat Robertson claimed that marriage equality supporters are following in the footsteps of the Illuminati.

Robertson told viewers that the French Revolution was “spurred by the writings of a group called the Illuminati,” which meant “to destroy the family, to destroy the state, to destroy capitalism and to destroy the church.” The gay community, he claimed, has similarly broad goals. “We have here a debate over same-sex marriage,” Robertson said.

“But is it really just about marriage or does it go far beyond that: to destroying the traditional family and building a country without God?”
