Pat Robertson’s surprising response on the topic of transgender people

Pat Robertson’s surprising response on the topic of transgender people

Christian Broadcasting Network chairman and founder, televangelist Pat Robertson, surprised many on Sunday with his response to a viewer who asked if he should recognize as female two co-workers who are apparently transgender.

“I don’t understand all that, but I think they are men who are in a woman’s body. It’s very rare, but it’s true,” responded Robertson.

“I don’t think there’s any sin associated with that. I don’t condemn anybody for doing that.”

Watch (advance to about the 2:30 mark):

Robertson more commonly sparks anger within the LGBT community for his frequent, anti-gay rhetoric.

Earlier this month, Robertson said he vomits at the sight of gay couples, and that gays and lesbians are just “confused” straight people.
