Pat Robertson’s Own Network Censors His Accusation That Gay Men Deliberately Spread HIV By Cutting People with Special Rings

TV preacher Pat Robertson, a towering figure in the anti-gay hate group movement, has said a lot of crazy things about gay people over the years — that God would smite Orlando because Disney allowed gays to host an event there and that gays and agreeing with his colleague, the late Jerry Falwell, that gays, the ACLU and others caused the 9/11 attacks. But his latest anti-gay smear represents a new low — a hateful accusation that makes no sense — so crazy that his own network censored it out after he said it live during the broadcast:


There’s No Free Speech in the Pennsylvania State House, at Least No Gay Free Speech

I did not believe that as a member of that body that I should allow someone to make comments such as he was preparing to make that ultimately were just open rebellion against what the word of God has said, what God has said, and just open rebellion against God’s law.

— Pennsylvania Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R), quoted by WHYY, after using a procedural maneuver to end remarks of openly gay Rep. Brian Sims (D) on the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage.
