It’s tempting to dismiss Pat Robertson as an unimportant distraction, a living relic whose various kooky opinions might have mattered in the past, but don’t matter any longer. That would be a mistake. While many other Christian right leaders have crowded the field in recent years, Robertson still has wide-reaching influence through his popular televangelism program “The 700 Club.” The show not only airs on Robertson’s own Christian Broadcasting Network, but also the supposedly mainstream ABC Family Channel.
Nor has Robertson really faded from the world of right-wing activism. The university he founded, Regent, continues to crank out hard-right politicians and bureaucrats, including Bob McDonnell, the governor of Virginia. The Robertson-founded American Center for Law and Justice, which is meant to be a Christian right counterpoint to the ACLU, continues to strike huge blows to human rights in the courts, with a specific eye to dismantling religious freedom and forcing fundamentalist Christian views on the rest of the country.

I LOVE YOU!
In all seriousness though, gay-bashing has got to stop. I hope people realize 70 years from now, everyone who is homophobic will be looked upon in the same light as we look upon racist people. It is hard for me to get through each day, go to school when there are kids that hate me and want me to die and go to hell where all homosexuals belong, but then I remember that fact and how I'm a hero, because I look upon people who were fighting for black\mexican\women\native american\chinese\whoever wasn't a white man 's rights back then as heros.
