In the speech, Robertson imagined a hypothetical scenario in which an atheist and his family were brutalized by two men who break into his home.
“He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him,” Robertson said. “And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot ’em and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And they can look at him and say, ‘Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’ ”
He went on to describe the assailants castrating the atheist.
“Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if this was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day,’ ” Robertson said.
Robertson previously courted controversy for speaking out against homosexuality in 2013, which got him suspended from the A&E show for a short time. In February, he delivered in a speech in which he called AIDS “revenge of the hippies.”
A&E declined to comment.
