Pat Robertson's Take on Homosexuality

Pat Robertson asks readers of CBN.com in his "Bring it On" daily question:

My high school has all these different programs that support homosexuals. I recently found out that one of my close friends was a homosexual, so I attended some events with him just to show him he’s still my friend. Is this going too far? How do I show him he’s still my friend without making him think I approve of his lifestyle?
Read his answer here.

  • I watched the movie "contact" the other day. In that movie they briefly talked about a theory called something i can't really remember... it said the simplest answer is probably the right one...

    I seem to agree with that...

    So, in regards to homosexuality we have two main possibilities:

    a) A few sex-addicted men one day decided that instead of going about the difficult task of finding a woman to have sex with, they would simply engage in homosexual acts. After that they got addicted, took over the media to get more people addicted... and now we have this whole lifestyle of homosexuals. they control the media to try and make their lifestyle seem "OK" and they even want the right to marry... they are trying to destroy the moral fabric of this country and trying to destroy Christianity... some gays even call themselves Christian. Homosexuality is just so bad that naturally they are inclined to risky behaviors, such as drugs, unprotected/anonymous sex, and suicide.

    b) A certain percentage of us are naturally attracted to the same sex. That certain percentage want to be treated the same as everyone else. The risky behaviors are not products of homosexuality, but rather products of homophobia, and a homophobic society.

  • Just a thought. Doesn't Pat Robertson and his ilk entice gays to heterosexuality?! Something to think about.

  • Interestingly enough, Pat Robertson seems to semi-condone people who alter their gender. He says something to the effect of no Biblical reference point existing to condemn people who change their gender. Also, I'd like to point out the utter hypocrisy of Rev. Robertson's answers. I'm a diligent viewer of The 700 Club, and on past shows, he has approved of people getting tattoos of Christian symbols. In this instance, he says it's wrong.

  • The theory is called "Occam's Razor" or the Principle of Parsimony.

    It states ""Plurality should not be posited without necessity."
    This basically translates to "The simplest answer is usually right" or "Keep it Simple, Stupid."
