As debate continues to rage over whether Christian business owners should be legally protected in refusing to provide wedding services for gays and lesbians, televangelist Pat Robertson weighed in Wednesday on why he believes Jesus wouldn’t have baked wedding cakes for gays.
“I think you’ve got to remember from the Bible, you look carefully at the Bible what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death,” Robertson said during an episode of “The 700 Club.”
Robertson continued, “So Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake, nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in because they wouldn’t have been there. But we don’t have that in this country here, so that’s the way it is.”

The “700 Club” host went on to compare the issues of abortion and homosexuality, claiming that both “deny the reproduction of the human species.”
“An abortion destroys the product of conception,” Robertson said. “Homosexuality is no chance of conception and it is a meaningless exercise, because it doesn’t go anywhere.”
