Pat Robertson urges LGBT people to ‘come out’ as straight
Appearing on “The 700 Club” Thursday, television preacher and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Robertson assured his viewers that gay people are not really gay, they’re just confused due to “chromosomal damage” they suffered as children, and urged his LGBT viewers to “come out” as straight people.
“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,” Robertson said., “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.”
Robertson went on to explain that these thousands of gay people who supposedly tune into his program are not actually gay. “It’s not something that is natural,” he said. “And when people reunite with the Lord, the Lord will get their priorities the way it is supposed to be.”
Then Robertson continued: “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.”
“There are others, maybe they’ve got some chromosomal damage, that’s different from heterosexuals,” he added. “And that’s of course what they claim in the homosexual movement. They say, ‘Hey, you can’t come out of this under any circumstances.’”

Pat Robertson is a really a fool, only he just doesn't know it and says ridiculously idiotic things like this. He's causing more problems for children by coming off with this isane rhetoric.

Because he OWNS the show. And he must hold some legal sway over all subsequent owners of what was once HIS cable channel "Family Channel" that they still have to broadcast his crap.

Maybe he can go live in Russia.

Honestly, how many people still listen to that jackass? R5 is right, and that's the only way he is able to stay on the air.

Maybe he should. And he can develop some kind of a joint broadcasting venture with the Orthodox church. After all, Freepers are finding Russia and its leader more and more likable with each passing day.

I wasn't abused. And I'm sure the science world would know if there was a chromosomal connection. What a fucking dirtbag. The sad part is any uneducated parent who would listen to him.

Was once told by a far right preacher, and follower of Pat Robertson, that there would be no need for mental institutions, or psychiatry, if "sinners" realized that the Lord really loved them and forgave them for their past misdeeds. I don't know who is more delusional, these "men of God" or their followers who send money.

What was it Pat? Insecticides used by agribusiness, the hole in the ozone layer, industrial waste seeping into water supplies, sustained exposure to high levels of radiation? What was it Pat?

LGBT people urge Pat Robertson to just kill himself and go live with the bigoted freak he thinks is god.

He's a nutter on the inerrancy of the Bible. Just a plain, old-fashioned nutter.

Thanks for your concern Pat, but I prefer to remain confused and damaged.

He's so dangerous. It's comments like this that produce a generation of homophobia. I'm all for free speech but there needs to be limits. This is exactly why the United States is behind every other country in the Western world when it comes to gay rights.
It should be illegal what he said.

He's as out of that closet as Liberace was out of his.

Yes - because Pat Robertson is so butch. He embodies masculinity itself.
These preachers think that because they speak with a soothing voice that whatever they say is true and from a place of love. Fucking theatrics.
Jesus I would love to see his computer history.

I believe The 700 Club buys airtime from local stations, like an infomercial. And when he sold CBN/The Family Channel, Robertson included a proviso that the network would show The 700 Club forever. That's how it manages to stay on the air.
