article imagePat Robertson would click 'vomit' button for Facebook gay photos

By JohnThomas Didymus     Jul 11, 2013 in Lifestyle
The controversial right-wing televangelist, Pat Robertson, has expressed disgust for members of the LGBT community, saying he wishes Facebook would provide a "vomit" button option alongside "Like" for Facebook photos of gay people kissing.
Robertson, already well known for his opposition to LGBT community, did not mince words expressing his feelings of disgust for photos posted to social media showing gay people kissing.
His latest controversial comment came in response to a question from a viewer on "The 700 Club." The viewer wanted the patriarch's guidance about how Christians should react to Facebook photos of same-sex couples on social media. The viewer asked:
When we "like" things on Facebook, if it's something that goes against what is written in the Bible — such as pictures of same-sex couples — is that considered condoning the behavior? How do you explain this to new Christian or youth?
Robertson's response:
You've got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that? Well that makes me want to throw up. To me I would punch "Vomit" not "Like" but they don’t give you that option on Facebook.
Robertson and his co-host laughed at the "joke." However, his statement his consistent with views he has expressed repeatedly about homosexuality. Earlier in the program he passed comments about homosexuality from the biblical perspective:
[Homosexuality is] an offense; it's an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman. That's what is says. And those who do that in the Old Testament were stoned to death.
He also called down God's judgment on gay people, threatening that the land would "vomit out" gays because their lifestyle offends God:
For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right. This decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this. Well, the Bible didn't talk about civil rights; it talked about this was an offense against God and the land. It was an offense against the land, and the land would vomit you out.
Digital Journal reported recently that Robertson advised women whose husbands are cheating that because men have an inborn tendency to be unfaithful women should learn to tolerate it and instead honor their husbands and be grateful they live in America. He said: "...like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn't want to wander... thank God that you have a marriage that is together and that you live in America and good things are happening."
