US televangelist Pat Robertson has claimed that Jesus would never have baked a wedding cake for a gay couple.

Right Wing Watch reports that he made the comments on his show on the Christian Broadcast Network, during a segment about a Colorado baker who is being sued for refusing to make a cake for a same-sex couple.

Robertson said: “Jesus would not have baked them a wedding cake nor would he have made them a bed to sleep in.”

“I think you got to remember from the Bible, if you look carefully at the Bible what would have happened in Jesus’ time if two men decided they wanted to cohabit together, they would have been stoned to death.”

“They wouldn’t have been there. But we don’t have that in this country here so that’s the way it is.”

He also claimed that homosexuality is the work of the devil, and that it is “a meaningless exercise because it doesn’t go anywhere.”

Robertson was voted Bigot of the Year by Stonewall in 2013.
