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."

  1. Oh Pat Robertson, you silly billy, have you forgotten your religious studies again ?
    Murderers and rapists can change.
    But homo can't change. They're "intrinsically disordered". Is says so right there in the Catholic Catechism.

    Murderers and rapists are not "intrinsically disordered" but the homos sure are.

  2. and joining in on the thinking of Mr. Robertson, is it then possible for someone so stupid to change and become smart?!?!?!?!? Just look at Mr. Robertson.......maybe reparative therapy can change his stupid orientation to someone with a smart orientation.....

  3. Wow, now I'm really looking forward to the day he finally dies. It should honestly be made into a gay national holiday when it finally happens.

    So, let me get this right, those gay kids who kill themselves just should've prayed a little bit harder because we all know they were already pleading with God to make them straight. Guess hanging themselves was just the easier choice.

  4. As a gay man about to turn 60-years-old, it really troubles me how an oppressed minority can so wholeheartedly buy into Madison Avenue's hatred of all Americans who are elders. This religious buffoon has plenty of reprehensible traits, but his mere age is not one of them! For almost all of the commentary on this article to "condemn" his age so glibly is an extremely hurtful insult to those of us LGBT folks who have had to endure DECADES of baseless hatred and insults, not to mention one of humankind's most devastating and medically elusive plagues. If not for the many 1,000's of great once-young now deceased or elderly gay men who fought for the very lives of the LGBT community, wholeheartedly supported and led by their lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender comrades, many of you folks who spout ageism as if it's funny would still be cowering in alleys and remote filthy men’s rooms to furtively act out clandestine sex acts, merely for sex's sake. Gay Marriage? Don't you know that it was elder LGBT folks who brought that up when it would cause the loss of one's livelihood, no prospects for any further career despite one’s collegiate degrees, and an ostracism by your local community started with your name listed in so-called police blotter vice columns in your local newspapers? Age has its advantages, even though this Robertson political hack hasn't seemed to achieve any. But I repeat: Age-related insults deeply hurt LGBT elders who've already taken a Hell of a lot of abuse to further LGBT rights for EVERY age group! Show some respect and common decency, please.

  5. @Bernie: it seems that the brain is malleable and that intelligence can be increased - kind of a "use it or lose it" thing. Alas, Robertson hasn't used it for most of his life judging from the crazy things he says.

  7. He forgot about hypocritical bigots who cloak their hate around Jesus Christ...yeah, that's what Jesus would have wanted...all of his teachings, all of his words, used for hatred? I don't think so, Pat. Better re-read that Bible. Hey, I'll make it easy on you...just go to the chapter in the Gospel (you do know where that is in the Bible, don't you, Pat?) Turn to where Paul asks Jesus what is the most important Commandment? Jesus answers, to love God my Father with all your heart and soul. Paul then asks, what is the second most important Commandment? Jesus answers, to love one another (ALL of God's children, Pat, not just the ones like you) to love them all as you love my Father. Got it Pat? You are not a practicing Christian, and if you don't change your ways soon, your soul will burn for all eternity in Hell. Not a pretty prospect. Why can't you be more like Jesus, Pat? Why all the hate? Where in the Bible does it say it is o.k. to hate? It doesn't! At all! Under no circumstances are you allowed to hate any of God's children. Read it for yourself.
