The Progressive Left’s argument is that Robertson said anti-gay remarks.

I call BS.  Logic fallacy 100%.

Robertson didn’t compare homosexuality to anything except what he believes is sin.

The lefts temper tantrum started when an interviewer asked Robertson the following question,

What, in your mind, is sinful?

Robertson replied,

“Start with homosexual behavior” [= sin]

That’s called a starting point.

“and [sin] just morph out from there.”

[sin =]”Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,”

[sin =]”Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers…”

His only thought crime was saying he believed homosexual behavior was sinful in the same shared paragraphs where he states it’s his belief that bestiality among other things is just as sinful.

Logic Abstract:
– (A) Homosexuality = (C) sin
– (B) Bestiality = (C) sin
– (A) Homosexuality =/ (B) Bestiality

Fallacy:
All A are C
All B are C
Therefore, all A are B

Homosexuality doesn’t equal bestiality, they are both sins in his opinion and I thought opinions were free.

The Left’s logic is incorrect – it’s a very known logic fallacy – undistributed middle.
