    On today's The 700 Club, Pat Robertson was asked what to do if your son tells you he's gay:

    Robertson:

    "I am not at all persuaded that so-called homosexuals are homosexuals because of biological problems. There may be a very few, but there are so many that have been made homosexuals because of a coach or a guidance counselor or some other male figure who has abused them and they think there's something wrong with their sexuality. So you need to get deep into why he is what he is, instead of just saying, 'Well, he's a homosexual so how do I handle him, and how do I be Christian?' Well, I think you ought to tell him, 'Listen, son, you know, here's what the Bible says about this, and it's called an abomination before God, so I've got to tell you the truth because I love you'...I mean, if somebody's on their way to hell, they'll -- I mean, you've got to love them to rescue them."

    That man has been on TV nearly 50 years and I still wonder why anyone cares what he has to day. He is as relevant as Paulie Shore.

    ...and a swift kick from me !

    The man is an idiot ! His ridiculous armchair theory on why men
    are gay proves it ! Does this apply to lesbians too ?
    What about Bi's and trans people ? So we've all been
    abuse by men !

    This reminds me of when my religious Gran, God rest her soul,
    thought Boy George whom she loved , was gay because everyone kept
    telling him that he was gay. * rolls eyes *
    No Grandma ! He's gay cuz he likes DICK ! icon_twisted.gif


    Hey Pat ! How about tjhis....
    Pat Robertson is an asstard cuz MEN teased him about
    his needle dick when he was a kid. I'm just sayin !

    I had a homosexual wont to touch me since I was 5 YO. But I feel my sexual orientation was already decided, before this wicked man ever touched me.

    Pluse the Bible is man made, like religion to controle and rule man. Still to this day there are people who try to use it too controle and rule man.

    Where have you gone, Pat Robertson, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

    Some Pat From The Past:

    "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history." –Pat Robertson

    "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." –Pat Robertson

    These quotes, though listed in the humor section, are anything but funny.

    But Pat is a joke.

    I will agree that when feminism was taken over by the femanazis, it had nothing to do about equality.

    I would not pay any serious attention to anything Pat Robertson has to say on any social or moral issues. That man is notorious for having diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain.

    And then some! We can take comfort that that day will come. But in the meantime he continues to do so much harm with his diatribes. icon_sad.gif

    Isn't there an underlying assumption here that "abuse" feels so good that we become habituated to it? It's a sin precisely because it's such a temptation.

    I sure hope Pat Robertson's suits are not a blend of polyester, that's an abomination! Same bible, same Leviticus, same god that's going to strike that man dead. As a Christian, I'm embarrassed and ashamed that fellow Christians are so narrow minded and unable to see past the years of misinterpretation!

    Leviticus only forbids the mixing of linen and wool. For some reason, the Hebrew elders neglected to mention polyvinylchloride-based artifical fibers.
    LOL I stand corrected! I'm sure God is much more at ease with the poly blends and how in the world did the Elders ever miss that, an obvious oversight! LOL Thanks JP!

    Why...does he care? Why do any of them really care? He's not our judge and who say's hell is at or door steps?

    PAT MY ROBERTSON'S only care is RATINGS!!

    TV Ratings make him money and so the controversy continues. Provocation and all is the same thing that DRIVE CNN...Attention and ratings and checks and cash from the misled!

    All faiths are like this. I am in one that is driven by the same ideals. I just ignore it and go about my business and we will all find out someday......that us poor humans made a bigger deal of it all than was actually warranted.

    Live on my GAY BROTHERS!!

    I remember years ago that James Dobson had a 'reformed' homosexual on his staff. They brainwashed the poor guy into believing that he was not gay, and even married him off to a needy woman. He was discussed all the time on 'focus on the family' Dobsons radio show. Proof positive that homosexuality is just a state of mind, and a choice so they said. Until he was caught in a gay bar! Whoops!

    Ditto the above, but this is really old news. I've heard variations of this message going back as far as 1988. Sadly, I actually believed this propaganda until 6-7 years ago.

    Pat Robertson is just another snake oil salesman who buys his own bullsh*t. Listening to him for advice or even a half decent depiction of reality can only lead to unfortunate, though absurdly humorous consequences.

    His apparent walkie-talkie connection with the Christian divinity falls under that observation as well.

    ***
    He, Pat Buchanan, and Patricia Pulling make me feel bad for people named Pat...you all carry a heavy associative burden.
