Careful: sizzling hot take from televangelist Pat Robertson on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act coming through.

After a Yelp revolt against the family-owned pizza shop drove the business to shut down indefinitely, Robertson took to “700 Club” Thursday to tell everyone to shut up. Also, to explain how gay weddings work: “Pizzas? I think, you know, you might as well keep your mouth shut,” Robertson said. “I’m not sure I would serve pizza for a gay wedding. Most gays, if they’re having a wedding, don’t want pizzas – they want cake. It’s the cake makers that are having the problem.”

Robertson tipped his hat to Memories Pizza owner Kevin O’Connor for attempting to effectively put an end to the "take-over" of gay people -- which, Robertson naturally conflated with bestiality.

“It doesn’t matter what custom you’ve got, it doesn’t matter what holy thing that you worship and adore, the gays are going to get it,” Robertson said. “They’re going to make you conform to them. You’re going to say you like anal sex, you like oral sex, you like bestiality, you like anything you can think of — whatever it is, and sooner or later you’re going to have to conform your religious beliefs the group of some abhorrent thing. It won’t stop at homosexuality.”
