LGBTQ people, “filth”
Robinson has made headlines recently for his vicious attacks against LGBTQ people, calling them “filth” and demanding nothing about LGBTQ people be taught in schools.
The North Carolina GOP Lt. Governor also announced there’s a “95 percent” chance he runs for governor in 2024. but kept most of his remarks focused on attacking LGBTQ people and playing the victim of anti-Christian bigotry.
“Because I’m a Christian,” Robinson said during a press conference call with fellow right wing religious extremist E.W. Jackson, “because I believe that homosexuality is a sin and adultery is a sin and fornication is a sin—but chiefly because I believe homosexuality is a sin—these people want to call me names and push me out of the public square. That is not how this country was designed to work.”
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom to worship but it also guarantees freedom of speech, which includes freedom to criticize others, especially elected leaders.
“This goes to the heart of religious freedom,” Robinson also said, as Right Wing Watch reported. “More to the point, it goes to the heart of the bigotry that we see—and yeah, I used the word bigotry because they love that word—the bigotry that we see against Christians.”
