Pat Robertson, our number one local embarrassment, has shot off his mouth yet again and shown himself to be a bigoted ass. Via Ex-Gay Watch (http://www.exgaywatch.com/wp/2007/12/pat-robertson-why-is-2-worth-protecting-against-hate/), on the 700 Club Robertson said laws protecting LGBT persons are not appropriate because gays and lesbians make up such a small part of the population. Here's a portion of Pat's comments (Ex-Gay Watch has a video clip):
"2% of our population could consider themselves gay or homosexual, and about 1% would consider themselves lesbian. That’s it! … There’s one thing about having ten, fifteen percent or twenty percent of our population being discriminated against, that’s a different matter."
So, according to Pat, discrimination is fine as long as you pick a small group in society as the target of your discriminatory scree. As noted on Ex-gay Watch, the Jews had better watch out under Pat's reasoning. And Guiliani wanted this man's endorsement?
