“The 700 Club” ran a story today about American Christians who are supposedly suffering persecution by being forced to violate their religious beliefs in order to maintain their jobs.
Citing figures like Kim Davis and Barronelle Stutzman, CBN insisted that Christians are being bullied, intimidated and persecuted by not being allowed to impose their beliefs on others or discriminate against gay customers while doing their jobs.
Pat Robertson was, of course, outraged by this “tyranny.”
“Believers should not be forced to do something they don’t believe in,” he said. “It is tyrannical to force somebody to give money and pay taxes for something they abhor … The homosexuals don’t just want to be left alone, now they want to come out and stick it to the Christians. They have made it clear and it’s an organized thrust throughout this nation to force conformity.”
“This used to be considered perversion, it used to be considered an abomination,” he continued. “The Bible says it’s an abomination, the Bible says it’s a sin and these people say, ‘Not only do we want to practice our sinful ways like Sodom and Gomorrah, we’re going to make you like it and we’re going to make you participate whether you like it or not.'”
“That is absolute tyranny and it’s high time we call it what it is and we stand up for freedom,” Robertson concluded.
