Pat Robertson implied that the LGBT community was the second coming of the Illuminati during the French Revolution – a group whose writings, he claims, sought to overthrow French society – on Wednesday while introducing a story on The 700 Club about legalizing same-sex marriage in France.

“It has been said that those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to live them again,” Robertson stated. "You go back in history to the French Revolution, you find there was a thrust, uh, spurred by the, uh, writings of a group called the Illuminati, to destroy the family, to destroy the state, to destroy capitalism, to destroy the church,” Robertson added. “And it was lived out in the blood of the French Revolution.”

“We have here a debate over same sex marriage. But is it really just about marriage?" he continued. "Or does it go far beyond that? They’re destroying the traditional family and building a country without God.”

Robertson is the Chairman of the Christian Broadcast Network, Chancellor of Regent University and former Southern Baptist minister who made a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 1998, running on his conservative Christian values. The views he espouses on social issues and Islam, among others, are often controversial and receive widespread criticism in the media.
