Pat Robertson on how to pray for your gay family member

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.”
