Quote# 80926

Pat Robertson has come up with a new theory as to why liberals support abortion rights — it’s because they want to put lesbians and straight women on “a level playing field.”

On a recent episode of The 700 Club, discussing the battle over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, Robertson says President Obama supports the organization because of what the antigay minister calls the Left’s “culture of death.” Then Robertson says to cohost Terry Meeuwsen, “If a woman is a lesbian, what advantage does she have over a married woman? Or what deficiency does she have?”

Meeuwsen replies, “Well, she can’t have children” — ignoring the fact that lesbians can and do have children. Robertson says, “That’s exactly right. And so if these married women don’t have children, if they abort their babies, then that kind of puts them on a level playing field.”

Level playing field for what purpose?
Lesbians vs cocksuckers death match?
They gonna have a red sunlit showdown on the plains of Israel?

Epic in-vitro fail aside, why would anyone settle for equality with someone who only makes 75% of what a white man does?

The fact that this man has not as of yet been struck by lightning and reduced to cinders at times leads me to seriously question the existence of a just and merciful God.

"Pat Robertson has come up with a new theory as to why liberals support abortion rights.."

Oh, good. Because surely the world can't get by without more vapid statements from yet another delusional twit.

I was unaware that once you become a lesbian you immediately become sterile. Although I do wish that becoming a fundie immediately rendered people sterile.

Let's put Robertson and a lion on a level playing field.

As despicable as this sentiment is - I hope Pat Robertson has a heart attack and dies. He is one of the most spiteful human beings in existence - second to Bryan Fischer. I hope he dies so he can't spread his hate anymore.

OK then, allow gays & lesbians to adopt children and maybe they wouldn't support abortion so much.

Ever think that women who get abortions are doing it of their own free will? I hardly think that roving bands of lesbians are kicking in doors, dragging pregnant married women out into the street and performing abortions on them. Why is it that anti-abortion fundies never can understand that nobody in this country is being forced to have abortions?

^Now how many are heterosexual? How do you know some of them aren't at least Bi? And how many of them are full-on devotees of Sappho? You tell me, Pat.

The whole 'cheerleaders in the post-game showers' thing can't purely be a porn-flick cliche, amirite?!

Oh, and as for the 'abortion' thing, Pat...:



Sakura Kinomoto atop Optimus Prime's shoulder has more relevance to the issue. Ever hear of Elton John and David Furnish, Pat?

"Culture of death". This, from the same "holy" man who once said on his show that it would be good if a member of the Supreme Court would drop dead.

Nice try, except that women of today don't share your archaic view of the "playing field", whereupon a female's only true value is in her capacity for baby-manufacturing.

And one does not abort "babies". One aborts a fetus.

That doesn't make any sense... people do not work that way.

“If a woman is a lesbian, what advantage does she have over a married woman?

None.

Or what deficiency does she have?”

The same none.

TM: “Well, she can’t have children.” PR: “That’s exactly right.

Seems Pat and Terry forgot all about IVF technology. They also forgot about surrogate mothers and adoption.

“And so if these married women don’t have children, if they abort their babies, then that kind of puts them on a level playing field.”

So is ol' Pat implying that childless hetero couples (because lesbians cannot marry everywhere in the USA...yet) as "bad" as lesbians?! Seems like it to me.

Y'know, that sounds a lot like something from a John Waters movie.....

Lesbians, like all fertile women, can and do have children.
Pat Robertson, like all brain-dead fundies, can and does say stupid things.

Dear Pat Robertson,

Just die already.

Signed, an angry citizen.

Ya know, ol' Pat can't squeeze out babies either. Why is he trying to emulate lesbians?*

*I mean, of course, women unaided by IVF or other means.

Right it has nothing to do with how the government should not have a say in what happens to a woman's body.
