(CNSNews.com) – Pat Robertson, host of the “700 Club,” said Thursday that the recent movement to force public schools and buildings to allow transgender people to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity is “a tempest in a teapot” and another progressive attempt “to destroy the Judeo-Christian fabric of America.”
“If I ever heard of a made up thing, this whole thing is a tempest in a teapot. It’s crazy. Less than one percent, a tiny fraction of one percent, are so-called transgenders. Well okay, let them have an operation, let them take the hormonal pills, let them take whatever they want to take and switch. Good, I’m all for it. There’s nothing wrong with that - no sin, nothing,” he said.
Robertson asked why the issue has become such a “big cause célèbre” that the Obama Justice Department has decided to step in.
“But why do we make it a big cause celebre? Why do we fight about it? Why does the Justice Department get involved? Why does the federal government come in with mandates? I mean what in the world is it?” he asked.
“It’s the constant driving of the agenda of anti-Christian bias. We’re going to destroy any semblance of the Christian morality that exists in our country, and our government is going to be at the forefront of it. That’s what you’re looking at. It’s one more attempt by the so-called progressives to destroy the Judeo-Christian fabric of America,” Robertson said.
“It’s like, who cares? You’ve got certain organs. So if you’ve got those organs, you go to the bathroom designated for people that have that type of equipment. It’s no big deal. I mean why are we making a big cause about it? How many people have to go to a public bathroom anyhow?” he asked.
“If you’ve got some voyeur who likes to look at little girls with no clothes on, and you turn him loose in a female locker room. The whole thing is crazy,” Robertson said,” calling it a breakdown of traditional morality.”
“It’s not that a lot of people are being discriminated against - they aren’t - and yet the Justice Department has come out with a ruling that the law in North Carolina is discriminatory, and of course they’d have to prove that in court,” he said.
Robertson called for a change in leadership in Washington, saying America is “furious at what’s going on.”
“They don’t want this so-called progressive agenda being jammed down their throats,” he said.
