Televangelist and dinosaur Pat Robertson says that photos of gay people kissing make him want to barf and social media should reflect that. Instead of offering a “Like” button for Facebook photos of couples smooching, Robertson is proposing a “Vomit” button.
“You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that?” Robertson responded to a viewer calling into to his TV show who asked if it was a sin to “Like” a Facebook photo. “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.”
About the only thing surprising about Robertson’s comments is that he is aware of the existence of social media.
Robertson must be suffering from upset stomach these days because he’s got barfing on the brain. His Vomit button idea comes just after warning that gays and lesbians are “an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.” That lovely idea comes to us from the passage in Leviticus that calls for the death penalty for homosexuality.
