Local Bigot Pat Robertson Hyperventilates Over Obama LGBT Rights Memorandum

Hardly a month goes by when local anti-gay bigot-in-chief (and in my opinion Christianist shakedown artist extraordinaire) Pat Robertson doesn't shoot off his mouth and spread his batshitery across the airwaves on the 700 Club. Thus, I guess it should have been expected that Robertson would be venting on air following Barack Obama's issuance of his memorandum directing all U.S. agencies to support LGBT rights around the world. Right Wing Watch caught Robertson's rant:

Isn’t it appalling that the United States of America would try to force the acceptance of homosexuality on other nations but at the same time we would not force them to take care of their religious minorities and they would permit discrimination and persecution of Christians? What kind of a country have we got? You know, there is a God in heaven and He is just. Thomas Jefferson, ‘I tremble when I remember that God is just.’ He is just, he is not going to allow this kind of thing to go on forever. This country cannot continue to violate God’s principles and to make a mockery of His laws and think we’re going to get away with it. And when the blow comes, it’s going to be horrible.

What's appalling is the manner in which Robertson enriches himself by demonizing other humans and asking those who can't afford to do so to send him money so that he can continue to live the comfortable good life in his mansion near Regent University. In my opinion, if anyone needs to fear God's wrath, it's Robertson and his fellow modern day Pharisees among the professional Christian set.
