Pat Robertson Tells a Viewer to Pray for a Gay Nephew, Defends Gender Reassignment Surgery: VIDEO

Robertson

Televangelist Pat Robertson answered a viewer today on whether she should pray for her gay nephew, Right Wing Watch reports:

Said Robertson: "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. So what’s he going to pray about? Is he going to say something is wrong unless he’s unhappy? And if he’s unhappy and realizes he is doing something that makes him miserable, you might help him."

Robertson added that that the viewer should "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.”

Robertson also suggested that abuse as a child is the root cause of homosexuality.

He also momentarily veered off to the topic of transgender people. Last July, he surprised people with his tolerance on the topic, and today defended gender reassignment surgery, noting that "I understand people that need a sex change operation - in other words a woman trapped in a man's body or a man trapped in a woman's body...and they really need some hormones and surgery to get the thing lined up."

Pat Robertson Reveals the Secret Behind How He Stays Fit: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-11-26 at 4.18.14 PM

On a segment related to exercise and ageing on today's 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson shared with his viewers his very own fitness "secret."

Said Robertson:

"A few years ago I did some pretty heavy stuff, I used to, my leg presses, warm up with 500 lbs. and I went up from there, I did 30 reps of 1,000 lbs."

Right Wing Watch reports that back in 2006, Robertson made similar outlandish claims that he could leg press 2,000 lbs even though he was 76 years old at the time and the current world record for that age is 1,335 lbs.

Robertson, as usual, remains blissfully unaware of any delusions of grandeur on his part.

Said Robertson:

"I think you need to counsel with him and see, you know, is there really a biological thing going on or has he been influenced, has a coach molested him?...[gay youth] don't know what they're doing, they're teenagers."

Anderson Cooper Rips Pat Robertson's Gay AIDS Ring Claims: VIDEO

Cooper

Pat Robertson finds his way to Anderson Cooper's 'Ridiculist' for his claims this week that gay people wear special rings designed to cut people during a handshake so they can then transmit the AIDS virus.

Said Robertson:

...You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger. Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder."

Says Anderson: "I've never seen that particular section at Zales."

Anderson then goes on to mock some of Robertson's other recent off-the-wall remarks.

Pat Robertson: Gays Wear Special Rings to Cut People and Intentionally Spread AIDS - VIDEO

Pat_robertson

On The 700 Club today, Pat Robertson claimed that gay people in San Francisco wear special rings in order to cut people so they can then intentionally infect them with AIDS when they shake hands.

CBN edited Robertson's claim out of the broadcast which it aired online, Right Wing Watch reports.

Robertson's claim came in a response to a viewer question from "a woman who wondered if it was wrong for the church not to inform her that a man she was driving to worship services is 'dying of AIDS,.'"

Said Robertson:

“There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody you had a heart attack, you can tell them they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody you’ve got AIDS...

...You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger. Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder."

UPDATE: Robertson releases a non-apology...

"In my own experience, our organization sponsored a meeting years ago in San Francisco where trained security officers warned me about shaking hands because, in those days, certain AIDS-infected activists were deliberately trying to infect people like me by virtue of rings which would cut fingers and transfer blood.

"I regret that my remarks had been misunderstood, but this often happens because people do not listen to the context of remarks which are being said. In no wise (sic) were my remarks meant as an indictment of the homosexual community or, for that fact, to those infected with this dreadful disease." - Pat Robertson, in a statement emailed to me by the head publicist for the 700 Club.
