Televangelist Pat Robertson wishes Chick-fil-A protesters would shut up

'I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on'

Televangelist Pat Robertson wishes Chick-fil-A protesters would shut up
10 August 2012

Televangelist Pat Robertson said this week that he wishes people demonstrating against fast food chain Chick-fil-A for its public stance against gay marriage and millions of dollars of contributions to anti-gay groups ‘would shut their mouth.’

Robertson takes issue with college students around the US, including in New York, Virginia, North Carolina and Mississippi, who do not want a company they perceive as being against LGBT rights on their campuses.

‘It’s a chicken sandwich, it’s a piece of white meat chicken between two pieces of white bread, it’s also a milkshake, now we’re going to go have demonstrations over that?’ he said on his 700 Club television show.

‘I defy these homosexuals to bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on, when that happens I will change everything I’m saying,’ he added. ‘Until that happens, I wish those demonstrators would shut their mouth.’

In the past, year alone Robertson has said gays are ‘possessed,’ that it is possible to ‘un-aquire gayness,’ and that the Democratic Party’s decision to include gay marriage as part of its platform is the ‘death knell’ for the party.

He also once said Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment in response to America’s abortion policy and that gays and lesbians were partly to blame for the Sept. 11 attacks on the US.
