Oh Pat Robertson how we will miss you when you get ‘called home’ and you are no longer around to spin your delusions. Robertson recently decided to defend himself from being called “anti-gay” on his 700 Club.
Robertson said in the video that is making the rounds on YouTube that “I am very pleased that we have many, many, many homosexuals watching this program and many of them are looking for love and acceptance and help, and I’m glad to report that we have thousands of these people who are saying, ‘yes we want to follow Jesus, we’re not happy with the lifestyle we’re in and we want to have a better way,’ I think it’s wonderful that that’s happening.”
Um…Pat, ya evah heard of the Internet?
I don’t think there’s a huge number of gays watching your show, and those that are, are probably watching in order to have a good laugh. After all, we love a good laugh.
Well, Robertson just cannot quite get the idea that he is, well, probably going to Hell faster than the rest of us. After all, it is a Top Ten Sin to lie, but not a Top Ten Sin for one woman to have sex with another woman, and Robertson has been lying a lot over the years, especially with regards to same-sex attraction.
In fact, Robertson offered up this little lie saying that people develop same-sex attracting “because they have forsaken God, it’s not something that is natural and when people reunite with the Lord, the Lord will get their priorities the way it is supposed to be…. You work through it and if you meet the Lord it should be, it can be instant.”
Um, really, Robertson, you might want to double check that because we’re pretty certain that there have been a lot of people who believe fervently in God who have deep same-sex attractions and who struggle with them for years and years. In fact, it seems like God forsook them.
Oh, and here’s another lie. Robertson claimed that “A lot of people are into this homosexual thing because they’ve been abused by a parent, abused by a coach, abused by a sibling, abused by a friend, they’re little boys and little girls and they don’t know any better and then they somehow think, ‘well I must be gay,’ they aren’t they are heterosexual and they just need to come out of that.”
Actually, the instances of child sexual abuse survivors believing that they are lesbian or gay because of sexual abuse is quite rare. In fact, its so rare, it’s pretty close to impossible to find accurate data on it, but that’s alright, what’s one more lie that Robertson will never repent about?
