When you have major media outlets declaratively describing Robertson's expression of his Christian beliefs as "anti-gay," what you are really seeing is major media outlets outing themselves as anti-Christian.
Politico. CNN. The Hollywood Reporter. Entertainment Weekly. Yahoo. Variety. And so on…
Robertson listed more than a half-dozen sins other than homosexual behavior, including a number of heterosexual behaviors, and "the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers".
It is certainly possible to try to disguise anti-gay bigotry as Christianity. Singling out gay people and not distinguishing between homosexuals as people and homosexual behavior are two of the most glaring examples.
But Robertson did neither. What he did do was to speak a Christian truth about various sins, and the media know this.
Anti-sin is not anti-gay.
But because the media and left are desperate to toxify Christianity as bigotry and bully Christians into silence, Robertson's remarks are seen as the perfect opportunity to do both.
Of course it is an added benefit to the media to try to tarnish a culturally conservative mega-hit, and maybe drive it off the air.
What we have here is nothing more than the media practicing McCarthyism and disguising it as tolerance.
