James Robison Uses 'The Hunger Games' to Argue Against Same-Sex Marriage, Warns Marriage Equality Leads to 'Bondage'
Televangelist James Robison this week appeared on Daystar’s Celebration to promote his new book, ‘Indivisible,’ which he authored with Jay Richards, a leading figure in the anti-evolution Intelligent Design movement. Robison made the case against legalizing same-sex marriage to host Marcus Lamb — who in December, 2010, admitted to having an extramarital affair and was accused of using the network’s money to pay for his trysts — by arguing that same-sex relationships are “defiling the truth” and warning that “when you defile the truth you move into bondage.” He later explained that “out of control appetites” and “out of control behaviors” lead to such bondage because a “totalitarian” government will have to move in to control the urges of the people…just like in “The Hunger Games.” Robison, who once claimed that Glee is a demonic tool bent on bringing down America, argued that Hollywood and public schools are not letting the real message of “The Hunger Games” reach children because they seek to “take people captive and destroy them.”
We wrote the book ‘Indivisible’ because we are really convinced that most people in America don’t know the truth. They don’t know the truth about our freedom; they don’t know or understand the real truth about the value of life. We talk about marriage, we don’t get into all of the issues that people are discussing about same-sex marriage, we talk about what marriage is and therefore it cannot be ‘same-sex marriage.’ You may have some same-sex relationships, we may have all kinds of relationships that are contrary and opposite to the word of God, so we are actually defiling the truth and when you defile the truth you move into bondage.
Out of control appetites, the compulsive behavior of men, forms the prisons that hold us captive and we can’t build enough prisons to keep people in who have unchained appetites. We’re living as out of control people and you’ve got a totalitarian, an oppressive government that is moving in to take control. Even ‘Hunger Games’ right now, which is very popular among young people, shows the power of an overbearing totalitarian state that is pressing in upon people, I hope the young people can see that. But the sad thing is, a lot of times Hollywood and the entertainment community will have other messages that they’re also sending out so that you miss the hidden messages that we need. Now remember this, if you’re going to take people captive and destroy them, you’ve got to deceive them in their thinking and in their belief system. Our education system has undermined the principles and foundation stones upon which this nation was established and built, and we’re going to have to return to those foundation stones.
