On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson criticized a Washington judge’s ruling that a florist who denied service to a same-sex couple seeking flowers for their wedding violated a state antidiscrimination law, calling the verdict “crazy.”
“This is outrageous,” Robertson said, “To tell a florist that she’s got to provide flowers for a particular kind of wedding? What if somebody wanted to marry his dog? She’s got to have flowers for that? What if there’s a polygamous situation where a guy has five wives and he wants to have five ceremonies and she’s going to be forced by the law to provide them flowers? This is crazy.”
He then pointed to a case from the 1980s in which a federal court ruled that Georgetown University must accommodate a gay student group to argue that schools and businesses should shut down rather than accommodate gay people.
