Robertson’s point, in a speech heavy with cultural admonitions, was that America had moved away from Biblical values. America, he begged, “I don’t want you to die early! If you’re disease-free and she’s disease-free and you’re married. You keep your sex right there. You won’t get sick from a sexually transmitted disease. Come on!” (He’s made this argument before, which probably won’t surprise you.) Who’s to blame? “It’s the revenge of the hippies! Sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll have come back to haunt us in a bad way.”
