Robertson expressed those views as the featured speaker at a 2010 Wild Game Supper at the Berean Bible Church in Pottstown, Pa., according to a video posted by the church.
Bereanism is an off-shoot of Calvinism; its adherents believe the Bible contains the literal word of God and should be followed explicitly.
In his speech, Robertson believes “gross sexual impropriety” has become endemic because the United States has become a “Godless” nation.
“Boy, is there some immorality going on around here,” he intones.
“Women with women, men with men. They committed indecent acts upon one another. And they’ve received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions,” he says.
“They’re full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless; they invent ways of doing evil,” he intoned.
“That’s what you have roughly, 235 years after your forefathers founded the country.”
Robertson espoused essentially the same view in an interview with GQ magazine, touching off a furor that led to his indefinite suspension from his reality show on the A&E Network.
In addition to his homophobic remarks Robertson also told the magazine he never saw blacks mistreated growing up in pre-Civil Rights Movement Louisiana.
His family has since questioned whether they can go on with the show without him. They also claim he is being persecuted for his religious beliefs, insisting that he “would never incite or encourage hate.”
“We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible,” the family said.
