Televangelist Pat Robertson now wants a Facebook vomit button, but why?
A viewer asked the following question:
“When we "like" things on Facebook, if it's something that goes against what is written in the Bible -- such as pictures of same-sex couples -- is that considered condoning the behavior? How do you explain this to new Christian or youth?”
Robertson replied, “A couple of same-sex guys kissing, you like that?" Robertson said. "Well that makes me want to throw up... To me, I would punch ‘Vomit,’ not ‘Like.'... But they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”
The television host had also said on Monday, “Homosexuality is an offense; it's an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman. That's what is says," Robertson said. "And those who do that in the Old Testament were stoned to death. For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right.”
“This decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this. Well, the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights; it talked about this was an offense against God and the land. It was an offense against the land, and the land would vomit you out.”
It seems Robertson is using a lot of “vomit” in his answers these days.
Anyway, it’s not the first time he has bashed the LGBT community. He previously said in April that same-sex marriage proponents are following in the footsteps of the ancient group that destroyed Catholicism, the State and the institution of family.
