Pat Robertson: San Antonio will jail Christians over anti-discrimination law

Pat Robertson and his Christian Broadcasting Network filed a report Wednesday that falsely claimed that having a “biblical view” on sexuality has been “criminalized” in San AntonioTexas.

Robertson said San Antonio “has gone off the rails” by adopting a non-discrimination ordinance [PDF] which includes protections for sexual orientation and gender identity, and claimed that the new law would lead to Christians being thrown in prison:

“This means that if you speak out about your deeply held religious beliefs they will put you in jail or brand you some kind of a class 3 felon. This whole thing is outrageous and that city council should be replaced.”

The segment quoted Christian Right activists arguing that gay people are seeking “special rights” while taking away the rights to religious freedom and speech of Christians.

CBN reporter Heather Sells even said the new policy “criminalizes those with a biblical view of sexuality.”

Of course, the ordinance neither curtails free speech nor bars anti-LGBT politicians from servicing in office.

And no Pat Robertson, it does not put Christians in jail or turn them into felons.

 It will always be acceptable to speak your truth, whatever that is for you.  There WILL come a day, very soon, I think, that preventing LGBTs from being who they are, loving who they love and marrying who they want will be illegal.

The sad part is there will be people who believe what he said, further spread the incorrect information and further the hate without ever getting the true story.

Quoting rfurlongg:

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Why does this buffoon get any airplay?

Every now and then, I'll linger on The 700 Club if I come across it, because you never know when good ol' Pat will say something crazy.

sidenote: The other day, I learned that Jerry Springer comes on right after The 700 Club. Oh, the irony. lol.

What he says used to anger me, now I just shake my head. The man is obviously not quite right up there.
I'm not sure what to think about the people that agree or believe what he says is the truth. They must not be quite right either.

 To a small degree he is right.  Businesses have been told who they must do business with and screw their religious principles. 

I don't know what the penalty is, the PDF didn't say.
