Christian televangelist Pat Robertson said Monday the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic ruling on same-sex marriage does nothing to change its illegality due to separations of power. “The 700 Club” host was asked on Monday’s show how Christians should respond to the argument Romans 13:1-4 can be interpreted as de facto support for same-sex marriage. “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same,” the biblical passage reads. Robertson gave answers echoed over the past few months by Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis. Davis was ordered detained Sept. 3 under a ruling by U.S. District Judge David Bunning after she refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples. She spent five days in jail. FULL REPORT
