Pat Robertson: Married Women Get Abortions to Be Like Lesbians

Posted By on Tue, Apr 26, 2011 at 2:29 PM

Let's come out and say it: Pat Robertson is not a huge fan of San Francisco. Or California generally, whose affinity for same-sex marriage led the famous televangelist to, in 2008, compare the state to "a city in the ancient days where people were so gross they actually tried to rape angels." (That's pretty gross!) Telling in this regard were the remarks of Robertson's spokesman when we called him last year to ask whether California has a pact with Satan. His response: "I don't know."

We're guessing most San Franciscans aren't huge fans of Robertson either, especially in the wake of his latest comments on The 700 Club, the unceasingly bizarre platform for the genteel 81-year-old preacher to warble his insane opinions into the camera. Robertson apparently believes that married women get abortions to put themselves "on a level playing field" with lesbians. (As Gawker points out, no one seems to have informed Pat that lesbians can give birth, too.)

The video above speaks for itself -- from Robertson's reflection that "the far left is livid about killing babies, they want to do this" to this thought-provoking non sequitur: "If a woman is a lesbian, what advantage does she have over a married woman?" It's always the same story with this guy: His ramblings would be amusing, in a crazy-bigoted-grandpa kind of way, if millions of people didn't actually listen to what he said.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
