26 Comments on “RWW News: Robertson: ‘Un-American’ To Oppose Anti-Gay Segregation Bills”

  1. “Remember the great Soup Nazi…”

    You know, I have never actually that big into Seinfeld, so I could be
    mistaken… but I think Pat Robertson took the wrong lesson from that

  2. “Basic fundamental right of American people to conduct their business in
    ways as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody else.”

    So question, does that mean that a gay couple have the legal right to
    marry? Seeing as that isn’t hurting somebody else. No Pat? Oh, I guess that
    only pertains to christian, white, straight, and male people. OK.

  3. Correct me if I’m wrong, but we weren’t supposed to sympathize with the
    Soup Nazi. 

  4. Continue to promote true Nazi values Robertson they were based on fascism
    and christianity after all. I think that you all need to go back and read
    more about Jesus because you’ve all missed the message he had for you
    somewhere along the way.

  5. Can attorney generals not defend laws of their state if they think they are
    unconstitutional? Is there anything that says that an attorney general has
    to defend a law in court?

  6. So, Pat, can a business owner refuse service to conservatives? Or to
    Serious question. If the shoe fits, wear it.

  7. Pat Robertson you pre date America just by the tens of thousands of years
    you been on this earth however.

  8. Just wait until something like this is passed and a business uses it to
    deny services to Christians. Then they’ll be squealing persecution and

    Oh wait.. they do that anyway.

  9. We as American have a basic, fundamental right to ignore Christian
    dominionists who own diamond mines and tries to pray away hurricanes. 

  10. In this economy, a baker and/or wedding photographer is going to refuse
    service? I think not.

  11. “We have never held that an individual’s religious beliefs excuse him from
    compliance with an otherwise valid law prohibiting conduct that the State
    is free to regulate. On the contrary, the record of more than a century of
    our free exercise jurisprudence contradicts that proposition. When
    followers of a particular sect enter into commercial activity as a matter
    of choice, the limits they accept on their own conduct as a matter of
    conscience and faith are not to be superimposed on the statutory schemes
    which are binding on others in that activity.” – Justice Antonin Scalia,
    Employment Division v. Smith 1983

  12. Businesses do have a right to refuse service. And consumers like us have a
    right to refuse to patronize a bakery that won’t make cakes for same-sex
    weddings. Vote with your dollars.

  13. A bakery can refuse to serve who ever they want so long as that bakery
    stops selling to the general public and gives up its corporate status.

  14. Robertson lived through the Civil Rights Era, when we decided that it was
    wrong to be able to refuse service on account of a particular trait (skin
    color). Now Robertson wants to go back to that, because Jesus.

  15. ” they obviously can’t pollute the environment” Pat you dirty little

  16. If it passes, just wait until the first fundy religious whacknuts gets
    kicked out of an establishment. Their howling will rise to the sky, and
    I’ll fall off my chair laughing at them. 

  17. Although I probably wouldn’t go to a business that didn’t like the fact I
    was gay, we have to realize that religious freedom is simply the right to
    practice the religion of your choice. It isn’t the right to persecute or
    discriminate against people your bible says is wrong. Your freedom to
    swing your fists wildly in the air stops where the tip of my nose begins.
