Pat Robertson has joined the ranks of right-wing pundits who've condemned the Obama administration for its pledge to use U.S. foreign aid to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights abroad.
One day after Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave impassioned speeches on the importance of LGBT rights, the media mogul condemned the Democratic party's actions on "The 700 Club," the Christian Broadcasting Network's flagship news program.
Robertson asked, "Isn't it appalling that the United States of America would try to enforce the acceptance of homosexuality on other nations, but at the same time, we would not force them to take care of religious minorities...what kind of a country have we got?" He then went on to note, "This country cannot continue to violate God's principles and to make a mockery of His laws and think we're gonna get away with it."
