Pat Robertson Says Love Your Gay Family Member By Refusing To Accept Her
Televangelist Pat Robertson has frequently told “700 Club” viewers that the best way to “love” their gay son or daughter is to warn them that they are “on their way to Hell,” advising parents to help their children “revert” and “un-acquire” their sexual orientation through ex-gay therapy.
Today, Robertson offered similar counsel to a viewer whose niece recently came out of the closet, telling the viewer that one way to show love for her daughter is to refuse to accept her as gay.
“You want to be loving and warm and let them know that you love them, but you cannot accept it and you cannot be an enabler,” he said. “If they’re living together as a homosexual and you’re a Christian you cannot say, 'I accept this lifestyle.'” He also warned that “there’s an incredible barrage of activity forcing people to accept the homosexual lifestyle.”
“Do we accept adultery? Do we accept fornication? Do we accept immorality?” he asked. “I don’t think we ought to be accepting of it.”
Robertson went on to praise gays as “very talented people” with “an enormous capacity for artistic expression.”
Correction: A previous version of this post said the viewer was talking about her daughter, when she was in fact asking about her niece.
