Pat Robertson: Gays Can Change Just Like Murderers, Rapists and Thieves — VIDEO


Commenting on a case in Ecuador in which a lawmaker was found guilty of discrimination over his anti-gay remarks, Pat Robertson expressed anger that speaking out against gays can be considered a hate crime.

Said Robertson:

"It is a hate crime to say somebody can change their sexual preference? ... Anybody who has ministered to thousands of people...know very well that the power of God can change people's orientation. A murderer can change. A rapist can change. A thief can change. That's what the Gospel is about. It's not a hate crime."
