Pat Robertson: The Trans Movement Wants to “Keep People from Having Children”

“The devil has found a new way to keep people from bearing young in the image of God,” Robertson said. “To think that these people will then be neutered, they will not be able to be married, to have successful families, they won’t have children to look after them in their old age. I mean, they are throwing away their whole future on this nonsense that comes about in this politically correct environment.”

Trans people don’t necessarily have surgery. But even if they do, they can (and do) get married. They can (and do) have successful families. They can (and do) have kids. They can (and do) have futures — good ones, too, if not for the likes of Robertson and his Christian allies.

What they don’t have is Robertson’s hate-fueled ignorance.

  1. Scottie, as we southerners say, “Bless his heart.” The reverend has long been a portrayer of the inane. “God was punishing New Orleans with Hurricane Katrina” is a personal favorite inanity. But, I like to say if that were true what does he say about two separate hurricanes canceling one day each of the 2008 and 2012 GOP conventions. The one in Tampa in 2012 was not a surprise, but the 2008 one was in Minneapolis, not known for its hurricanes. Keith

    • Hello Keith. Thank you. I understand you are not like these assholes, but I ask you indulge my response to them below using your comment as the jumping off point.

      Sometimes when I post these things I feel like I am going after low hanging fruit. Then I am reminded of the many kids committing suicide due to these statements from religious leaders, I remember how I suffered as a gay kid hearing constantly that god hated me, I was an abomination to not only the god every one told me about but the people in my life who followed him. The very people who raped me repeatedly as a child used these religious talking points when I came out gay as an adult. One of my abusers, when I told him I was gay after I had done my military service, asked me if I had considered getting psychiatric help! ( I never have understood how those straight guys could do that to me while hating gay people ) I remember being a 13 / 14 year old in a school gym locker room hearing all of Anita Bryant’s horrible attacks on gay people repeated by my classmates and teachers.

      Keith I respect you and understand you have religious faith. That is a right I served two tours in the US military to protect.

      However those religions include the ones that tried to convert me in the military despite my constantly asking they leave me alone has been a huge factor of the hate / harm I have faced in my life.

      I had a friend beaten to death one night walking home from school by a group of guys who claimed at trial they were only doing as their religion required as homosexuality in the bible was abhorrent to god and deserved death. I know now that defense would not be allowed but it was then and given credit here in Florida.

      So this is why I am so anti-religion and so very suspicious of religious people.

      Again for everyone reading Keith was in agreement with me on the post. He is not the problem nor in any way harmful. I used his comment to get some anger out of my self. Please support people like Keith that understand the difference of personal faith that leads one to better themselves and those that use such beliefs to bash and harm others. Hugs

      • Thanks for sharing your perspective. Quite simply, when religion is inclusive, it is at its finest; when it excludes it at its absolute worst. Mr. Robertson is preaching an exclusionary religion. Keith
