    Televangelist Pat Robertson on protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination: ‘The land will vomit you out’

    "On Tuesday, the former Southern Baptist minister and conservative evangelical hero criticized a bill that will grant anti-discrimination protection to all LGBTQ individuals living in the U.S. Shortly after interviewing fellow anti-LGBTQ crusader Mat Staver on the Christian Broadcasting Network about “this iniquitous piece of legislation,” Robertson urged viewers to contact their representatives to protest against the Equality Act.

    If signed into law, the Equality Act will protect LGBTQ individuals from discrimination by amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include gender identity and sexual orientation. After two failed attempts, in 2015 and 2017, the bill is expected to brought to a vote by the House on Friday.......

    The televangelist continued his call-to-action speech with some old-school attacks on equality, by quoting from the Bible: “I was reading in Leviticus where it says because of these things the land ‘will vomit you out,’” he said. “Vomit you out. I think God will say, ‘I’ve had it with America if you do this kind of stuff, I’m going to get rid of you as a nation.' ”

    “We want the blessing of God, not the curse of God,” he added, before describing the legislation as an “attack on religious freedom.”

    Feeling inspired, Robertson seemed to somehow link legal non-discrimination protections to all people with catastrophic events and the “devastation that can happen on our nation.” Events such as “the potential of atomic war,” a “solar strike,” even the possibility of an attack on the nation’s electric grid.

    “Don’t let these people get away with this nonsense,” he pleaded. “This is absolutely outrageous, it’s an attack on your religious freedom, the freedom of churches, freedom of synagogues, freedom of, you know, whoever.”

    Or maybe they care just as much about the human baby that will be killed as they do the mother.

    LOL, your reading struggles. That's not my words, it's the article.

    Obviously, you did since you literally made a post devoted to it. Don't read, then forget a post you made a few minutes earlier.

    There are over 300,000 more female voters in South Carolina than there are men, yet South Carolina overwhelmingly elects candidates who oppose abortion. Regardless of how you stand on the issue, this "man vs. woman" messaging is not based in fact or reality.

    Took the words right now it of my mouth. But Ohio is even worse. They made up a medical procedure that doesn’t exist.

    Ectopic pregnancy. When a fertilized egg implants itself someplace other than the uterus. It’s not as uncommon as you would think - about 20 / 1000 or 2% of pregnancies.

    95% of the time it implants in the Fallopian tubes - the little tubes meant to transport an unfertilized egg. They aren’t very big and not designed to expand. It starts to grow there, causing considerable discomfort and pain.

    If it isn’t detected and removed promptly, the tube bursts and there is high risk of the mother bleeding out. Ectopic pregnancies are one of the leading causes of maternal death.

    The morons who wrote the Ohio bill stipulate that in an ectopic pregnancy can only be legally ended by removing the embryo and transplanting it in the uterus.

    Not doable. You’re not repotting a plant. Embryo is a goner any way you look at it. If it cant be removed before it becomes a crisis, the mother may be too.

    Some statistics from Georgia

    242BE899-7A05-4323-A790-A19EDD52B8AF.jpeg

    So apparently there are not enough people stepping up to adopt, employee, house or care for kids in the state as it is. as it is. But hey - let’s throw a bunch more into the mix and make it worse.

    Yet liberals continue to attack Christian foster and adoption agencies because they are Christian and only place children in homes with a mother and a father.

    So responding to a post makes me grouchy? That doesn't even make sense. It's like you have some dumb post quota to meet each day. Don't project your grouchiness on me, I'm actually in a great mood, last part - https://www.namepros.com/threads/th...ou-get-the-idea.761952/page-2502#post-7236482

    Step 1: Republicans get into power and then cut taxes as much as possible on the rich and big corporations.

    Step 2: Republicans brag about how the economy has improved on essentially borrowed money since reduced tax income means that more money must be borrowed to offset the loss in taxes. Interest will then have to be paid on that borrowed money for a long, long time, thus reducing the ability of the government to invest in people and programs.

    Step 3: Republicans suddenly notice that less tax money is coming in, and cut government spending on programs for the poor and middle class.

    Step 4: Republicans undermine unions as much as possible to try and help their corporate friends pay as little as possible in wages. Over the long term, this results in regular people having very little money. Republicans also resist raising the minimum wage and resist all wage increases as much as possible. This also results in the poor and middle class having little money over the long term. Income inequality expands. The well off get richer, and everyone else gets poorer.

    Step 5: Republicans avoid much-needed infrastructure spending programs, which would help the nation by providing jobs, growing the economy, and increasing the amount of taxable income which could help pay off debt. Republicans tend to avoid big infrastructure programs because they have convinced themselves that, in general, Government Spending Is Bad—except on certain things like expensive military weapons, in which case, they seem to believe that one can never spend too much.

    Step 6: Republicans watch in total surprise as businesses start collapsing, and more and more regular people start defaulting on their mortgages, bank loans, and credit cards. Since most businesses cater to the poor and middle class, when regular people do not have any money, most businesses end up with fewer customers, and thus, little money. Welcome to another Republican created recession.

    Step 7: Republicans do little to fix the recession, since fixing the economy would involve reversing what the Republicans actually did while in office. Eventually, voters put Democrats back into power, hoping that the Democrats will be able to fix the bad economy. The Democrats increase Government spending with an infrastructure program to counteract the economic slowdown caused by the Republicans. Republicans scream bloody murder about how the Democrats are creating government debt with their spending. As Republicans do this, they ignore the huge amount of government debt which was created by 1) Republican tax cuts, 2) the economic slowdown caused by Republican cuts in spending to pay for their tax cuts, and 3) the economic slowdown caused by Republicans fighting unions, fighting wage increases, and fighting all efforts to implement big infrastructure programs.

    Step 8: The economy slowly recovers due to measures which were both pushed for by Democrats and fought against by Republicans every step of the way.

    Step 9: After years of economic improvement under Democratic leadership, Republicans spend countless millions of dollars trying to convince voters that they will do a better job with the economy than the Democrats did. Voters eventually vote the Republicans into power.

    Step 10: Go to Step 1.
