Conservative host Pat Robertson warned parents on Tuesday that there is a good chance their kids “turn into” gays and lesbians because school officials may have “molested” them to recruit into homosexuality.
While responding to a concerned parent on his show The 700 Club, Robertson said their 16-year-old gay son might have been sexually abused by his coach.
“Is there really a biological thing going on? Or has he been influenced, has a coach molested him?” he asked.
“These kids are in a formative state. And sure, they may have some attractions to people of the same sex. I mean, they don’t know what they’re doing, they’re teenagers. So, they go for the opposite sex. Some are attracted to one another. But there are a lot of things that happen,” the televangelist concluded.
While Pat Robertson believes being a transgender is not a sin, he strongly opposes gay people and their values.
He has made several controversial anti-gay comments in the past. Just recently he presented a theory about homosexual people ‘intentionally’ spreading AIDS through special rings which prompted immense criticism.
