Pat Robertson continues his reign as conductor of the crazy train with his latest  "700 Club" commentary about marriage equality.

In a circuitous little statement about the French Revolution, the Illuminati and "history repeating itself," Robertson segued his ramblings to gay marriage, asking viewers if equal rights advocates are really "just about marriage," or if their motives "go far beyond that: to destroying the traditional family and building a country without God?”
