North Carolina GOP Lt. Gov. Slammed For Saying Gay People Serve No Purpose, Unlike 'Superior' Straight People

Republican North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson left many people outraged following bigoted comments he made about LGBTQ+ people.

Robinson, who is also the pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, told his congregation from the pulpit gay people serve no purpose and straight people are "superior" to them.

Robinson made the comments during a sermon on November 14, seen below.

In his sermon, Robinson asked his congregants what the purpose of gay people is.

"If homosexuality is of God, what purpose does it serve? What does it make? What does it create? It creates nothing."

He then proceeded to compare gay people to "what the cows leave behind" and the maggots and flies it attracts, which he said at least serve a purpose in God's creation.

It got worse from there.

Robinson next recounted a conversation he had with a gay man who asked Robinson if he thought he and his wife were "superior" to the gay man and his husband.

Robinson responded:

"Yes!"
"These people are superior because they can do something these people can't do. Because that's the way God created it to be. And I'm tired of this society trying to tell me it's not so."

And of course, Robinson had some choice words for trans people as well.

"Ain't but two genders—male and female. Two. There are two genders, male and female."
"I don't care how much you cut yourself up, drug yourself up and dress yourself up, you still either one of two things—you either a man or a woman."
"You might be a cut up, dressed up, drugged up ugly man or woman, but you still a man or a woman, and I don't care who doesn't like it."

Robinson received a round of applause for that factually and scientifically incorrect screed—not that Robinson cares because he next went on to assail the scientific community for supposedly lying about the reality of climate change.

'Those same people will tell you that there are 32 genders. Where? On the Muppet Show."

On social media, Robinson's comments left many people outraged and disgusted, including calls for resignation from some of his Democratic colleagues.










Robinson previously sparked outrage last month when comments surfaced in which he called homosexuality "filth," leading North Carolina Democrats to call for his resignation then, too.

Robinson is believed to be planning a run for governor of North Carolina in 2024.
