A major lesbian and gay organization issued a warning Thursday to religious political broadcaster Pat Robertson that remarks he’d made earlier this week about Orlando, Florida expose him and his media empire to civil and criminal charges should the city experience a terrorist attack.  

Robertson said that Orlando could suffer from terrorist bombs, hurricanes, earthquakes and even a meteor for allowing gay pride flags to be flown along city streets. His remarks were made Monday on the Christian Broadcasting Network's 700 Club following a news report on Gay Days at Walt Disney World, which took place Saturday, June 6.   

"Pat Robertson practically invited a terrorist attack on the city of Orlando." said David M. Smith, the Human Rights Campaign's communications director and senior strategist.  

"In the wake of last year's bombings at Olympic Park, the Atlanta gay nightclub, and a number of attacks on women's reproductive health care facilities, his remarks are an outrageous act of irresponsibility that have the potential to incite more violence."  

"I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you," Robertson said.  

"This is not a message of hate; this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor." 

"Pat Robertson has exposed himself and the Christian Broadcasting Network to significant legal action should such a terrorist attack take place," said Tony Varona, HRC's chief counsel.  

"These remarks clearly indicate a reckless disregard for the safety and well-being of the people of Orlando."   

Despite these irresponsible remarks, three days later Pat Robertson was granted a meeting with House Republican leadership to discuss issues of concern to the Christian Coaltion, the religious political organization he founded. 

Robertson and Christian Coalition Executive Director Randy Tate met with House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas, and Majority Whip Tom DeLay, R-Texas late Wednesday according to news reports.   

Southern Baptists Issue Bizarre Anti-Gay/ Anti-Woman Resolutions 

Yet another anti-gay resolution was passed Thursday by the Southern Baptist Convention, meeting in Salt Lake City. The resolution, shamelessly, called on Congress to rescind President Clinton's executive order banning workplace discrimination against lesbian and gay federal employees.  

"This group seems to be obsessed with attacking lesbian and gay Americans by resolution," observes the Human Rights Campaign's senior strategist. "While differences of opinion on religious matters is to be expected, religious disagreements never justify discrimination."   

Earlier this week, the group passed resolutions opposing same-gender marriage and urging wives to submit to their husbands. Last year, the group called for a boycott of the Walt Disney Company because of its policies extending health insurance to the domestic partners of gay and lesbian employees and allowing Ellen DeGeneres' character to come out as a lesbian on ABC's Ellen. The boycott failed as Disney's stock and earnings soared.
