Pat Robertson: If Brendan Eich Is Wrong, Then ‘God Almighty Is a Hater’

Televangelist Pat Robertson used his own unique brand of logic Monday to explain why he disagrees with the ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, who resigned after controversy ignited surrounding a political contribution he made to the anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 campaign in 2008. If Eich is guilty of “hate speech,” then Robertson said “God almighty is a hater.”

“Here this man at Mozilla, Eich, had given $1,000 about six or seven years ago — $1,000 — to a proposition,” Robertson said of Eich’s donation. “And somebody came around and said, ‘Will you contribute?’ And he said, ‘Here’s a grand, get off my back.’ I mean, that’s probably all that it amounted to.”

“But instead of that, he’s being forced out by gay activists, who said that was hate speech to say that the union between a man and a woman is marriage — that’s hate speech,” Robertson continued. “Well then, the Bible then is full of hate. If that the way it is, then God almighty is a hater. If that’s the way they want to define it. And I, of course, don’t agree.”
