Pat Robertson on how to pray for your gay family member

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch
Thursday, December 5, 2013

Pat Robertson says he wants to vomit when he sees photos of gay couples, but advised one 700 Club viewer today that homosexuality is a “very delicate situation.”

He suggested to a viewer, Teresa, that she could help her openly gay nephew by making him realize the Bible is “explicit” in its condemnation of homosexuality. Robertson added that “many, many people are into this lifestyle because they have been abused as a child and so forth; I don’t know why it’s there.”

“A few years ago psychiatrists and psychologists used to say that homosexuality was a mental illness, now the Supreme Court has said that it is a protected right,” Robertson said. “So what’s he going to pray about? Is he going to say something is wrong and he’s unhappy? And if he’s unhappy and realizes he is doing something that makes him miserable, you might help him.”

Robertson urged Teresa to “pray that the Lord will show him his love and his truth and out of that he will find an acceptance of where God has for him.”

  28. I’m a Christian and a homosexual. The most devoutly Christian people I am close to will tell you that the gay can’t be prayed away. If God put that orientation in someone, He wants it there. Simple as that.

  56. First of all. I don’t know about you, but don’t need prayer, I need for a lot of Christians to stay out of the queer community’s business. It’s actually extremely offensive and disgusting that he’s allowed to broadcast. It’s not the queer community’s fault that he is a bigot and an ignorant person.

  82. God doesn’t make mistakes. He makes challenges for us to overcome. Many don’t realize homosexuality is not a challenge the challenge for the one living that life to overcome, but for the others who choose to demonize its existence.

  86. I think anyone that protests too much about a sexual orientation, lifestyle or anything that isn’t their own and doesn’t affect them at all is mentally ill and we should probably pray for them. The same goes for gay people who bash straight people and bisexuals. Just let everyone be, as long as they’re happy and not hurting anybody, who cares? <3

  89. Hey, Pat. Why don’t you pray to god to cure your bigotry? Or pray to cure the 50% divorce rate among straight marriages? People like him who use religion to condemn and deprive us of our rights make me want to vomit….on their shoes. No, I think projectile vomit in their face would more accurately convey my feelings.

  112. I find it interesting that he said to pray that god “show him his love and his truth and out of that he will find an acceptance of where God has for him.” while this isn’t great it is better than praying that god fix something that isn’t broken. I don’t think pat is a bad man but I think he is often terribly misguided.

  149. I feel so bad for him because you can tell he means well even if it is misguided. I cant believe anyone in his position would intentionally want to do harm to another fellow human being but his position of influence over others cannot be overlooked. All we can do is prove him wrong by continuing what we have been doing. Showing we are capable of happy healthy relationships and are still god loving people (for those who are religious)

    Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 5:34pm
  163. He also says that if women kept their men a little happier in the bedroom, their men wouldn’t want to stray. He is a homophobic, racist, misogynistic, fossil.

    Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 5:37pm
  167. Well, due to inclusion of many other religions with different beliefs and values as well as the evidence of many, many, pre-Christian religions we can say that the Holy Bible is more… speculative then “explicit” about things. Especially considering Pat’s form of Christianity is fairly recent, it’s roots stemming from 400-500 years ago as the Catholic church split apart. Then Catholicism itself dates back to the end of the Roman empire, about 500 years after the purported death of Jesus Christ himself, so it’s not like it’s always been there. Especially since it was founded upon Judaic beliefs which were founded themselves upon far more ancient systems of religion. The sister religion of Christianity is in essence Islam since they share similar roots, but have two distinct “personalities”. You know what? When you remove the blanket of dogma and look at things in hindsight. One religion isn’t more special than the next sadly. So if Christianity isn’t special and the Bible itself is speculative, then the whole anti-argument against gays just kind of falls apart quicker than sandcastle at the beach.

  170. How about JUDGE not lest Ye be judged??? Or the greatest commandment is LOVE one another!!

    Religious people always want to pick and choose what they think is right yet ignore ALL of the other sins/commandments that they do. Hypocrites……. They use a “gospel whip” trying to guilt others to conform to their thinking.

    In the 1600′s there were 80+ translators commissioned to work on the King James Bible that we have today. Hmmm, 80 people translating a book that had already been translated many times prior!! They could pick and choose their own words, thoughts or ideas of what they wanted to say. Some words there are no translations for!!

    Please give me a break….

  187. Amazing comments! And the venom expressed! Christians pray for each other, for others, for those in authority, for those with needs–would one not be discriminating not praying for any family member. I AM NOT a fan of this man, but neither am I a fan of aggressive, hostile expressions towards anyone. Shannon, I suspect you posted this to add a bit of spice to a humdrum day. You succeeded!

What a sick joke. I pray that you grow a brain and open it, and a heart and open that too. Merry Christmas rev. Roberson, if anyone needs prayers, it’s you!

  192. You can’t pray the Gay away. I’m a lifelong bisexual. I’ve tried to “get rid” of it. Didn’t work. So, I just accepted myself. I have more important things to worry about in life than feeling ashamed of what is a natural part of me.

    Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 5:55pm
  193. The christian bible is pretty explicit about doing many things that are illegal in the United states such as: human trafficking, stoning, and murder all in the name of their god. It is time that people wake up and see christianity as the cult it is. Religion is a crutch/excuse for those who are too weak and feeble to accept their own mortality. Hopefully one day soon logic and reason will put an end to the plague that religion has caused this planet.

  203. P.a. Arnold…. my intent was not to add excitement to anyone’s day…. the point was to highlight the obstacles that we continue to face everyday… and the deep bigotry that still exists. I don’t think a single person would object to someone praying for you if it were for the altruistic reason of hoping for individual well being. However, this is not for those reasons, this is because he wants people to change because they don’t fit in his box of what is acceptable!

    Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 6:09pm
  204. Can he teach us how to pray for ignorant people like him? Geesh!

    Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 6:10pm
  205. I’ve again the Bible was written by man not by God. and for some that will say well God spoke to them. then why is he not still doing it to this day. people are born the way they are let them live their life. if you’re going to read your Bible it says God created every person in his own eyes and image. so what does that have to tell you. you can’t help the way you’re born. people may say the choice. with some of the stuff that goes along with it trust its not a choice its just how you are.

  249. I, in no way, wish it to appear I’m validating this man’s position(s), nor even conjecturing on how high his prayers go. As I pray for those already mentioned, there’s prayer for “…my (sibling) and each of their family,” and myself, God already knows the needs of each, and doesn’t need me, nor my opinion of their needs, any of them. Sure, there is bigotry in this world: try visiting an elementary school classroom, where filters on what’s said are almost non-existent: all the family bigotry comes out, vividly. Any of it is wrong, and the out come of a lack of knowledge. We would think it dumb if you thought I could should only like the type of car you favored, or if I felt your favorite sport had to be my favorite. If you were a vegetarian, I’m certain you wouldn’t feel I had to be too, nor only frequent restaurants with an all vegetarian menu. Bigotry, from any direction, is still bigotry. Aggressive, and venomous verbalizations is, what?

Well Now that Pat Robertson has spoken it is my turn and I speak to EVERYONE on this we in the LGBT community are being as nasty, disgusting and sick as Mr. Robertson when we wish death on him and we call him all the rotten names, this makes us NO BETTER than him and I Know my brothers and sisters in the LGBT community are a million times better than him. So please let us pray for the man because we know he is not well. We KNOW he is misguided and misinformed. He CANT do better because he honestly DOES’NT know better. Remember GOD is the final judge not Mr. Robertson. Further we know he is not really relevant anymore he pays to be on the air, him and his partners. As we can all see he does not have long left and anything he says does not really effect any of us I know it does not effect one single issue in my life personally. As a matter of fact sometimes when I see or hear his latest comments I am actually amused. The only power he has my brothers and sisters are the power we give him.

I will also go on record and say I was not abused, sexually, mentally, physically, etc. No one every touched me in an inappropriate way without my consent. So Mr. Robertson, what straws do you want to cling to now? Don’t pray for me, pray for the thousands of priests stealing and sexually abusing the children who go to their church. Take out a loan and buy a clue. Gay people are still people.
