While there the President took time to speak out on LGBT rights despite the fact that he had been warned not to raise the issue on the trip. The reason is that being gay is illegal in Kenya. Nevertheless during a press conference with Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi on Saturday, Obama said that the idea that a "law-abiding citizen" could be treated differently under the law was simply wrong.
"I believe in the principle of treating people equally under the law, and that they are deserving of equal protection under the law and that the state should not discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation,"
Apparently these words from President Obama were too much for Televangelist Pat Robertson who took to his bully pulpit on his daily television show, “The 700 Club” to rebuke the President.
On that days program, a Christian Broadcasting Network reporter profiled the debate in Kenya over President Obama’s support for LGBT rights and called on Kenyan leaders to reaffirm the country’s laws making homosexuality a crime punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment. The reporter then urged Obama to reverse his support for LGBT rights before it leads to America’s destruction.
Robertson, who believes that LGBT rights will lead to divine wrath against America as well added this bit of stupidity to the already repellent conversation...
“those Africans have got it right… One wishes that the president of the United States would listen to some of his fellow Africans... cousins, to what they have to say because they speak truth and they speak wisdom,”
Listen to the idiocy here…
