Pat Robertson Believes Lots of Gays Watch Him On TV Because They’re Really Straight

Laser-like logic has never been televangelist Pat Robertson’s long suit, but he does seem to have an unparalleled ability to make every new statement seem dumber than the one before. In an appearance on his television program, Robertson said that he knows he has a large gay following, but that’s okay, because gays are really just confused heterosexuals.

In launching his latest rant, Robertson argued that there are  “many, many, many homosexuals watching this program,” although he forgot to add “for laughs.” Robertson then went into a rambling explanation as to why there really are no gay people in the world.

“They have forsaken God, it’s not something that is natural and when people reunite with the Lord, the Lord will get their priorities the way it is supposed to be,” Robertson said before trotting out the abuse canard. “A lot of people are into this homosexual thing because they’ve been abused… they’re little boys and little girls and they don’t know any better … and then they somehow think, ‘Well, I must be gay.’ They aren’t. They are heterosexual and they just need to come out of that.”

So, there you have it. In Roberstonland, the universe is 100 percent heterosexual. Interestingly, this is what Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s son seems to think. Which begs the question: if there are no gay people, why do these folks spend so much of their time attacking us?

    This guy really has issues. I can imagine his true self slipping through the false pretenses in some rest home, when he’s half out of his mind with dementia. The charge nurse will recommend no males need take care of him, due to his ongoing, inappropriate behavior. He’s really weird.

    I challenge him to name ONE gay guy that actually listens to his sermons.

    When I first saw the headline I thought it said, “Pat Robertson Believes Lots of Gays Watch Him On TV Because They’re Really Stoned.”

    That might work, especially if you had stuff to throw at the TV.

    I love the last line in this post. “If there are no gay people,why do these folks spend so much of their time attacking us?” So many answers to that question come to mind,the biggest being,they are all bat shit crazy and Patty is their leader!

    This guy has made more people throw up than 2 Girls 1 Cup ever could. How is he still on Tv?

    Homosexuality is normal for all men because all men have sex for pleasure and not to become pregnant. Sex-for-pleasure entails sex for any reason related to pleasure, and this includes sex with men.

    The stigma against male homosexuality was created so as to curtail the natural promiscuity of men.

    This wacko thinks gays watch his show is really sad. I don’t watch his show because I know he tals junk. He is an Evangelical who thinks he has all the anwsers just like his friend Billy G. Billy and his sicko kids follow in these guys foot steps. They find this has a way to travel the world, own jets, high price cars, rich men homes, eat the best food, wear tailor made clothes and on and on. Their talk caters to a group who believe any thing and thing their all going to heaven no matter what they do. Pat has an Evangelical following and others watch to hear how silly he is.

    It been proven time and time again that the more anti gay a person is, the more likely they are to be gay. University studies have proven this over and over. Exhibit A: Mark Foley, Larry Craig, Ted Haggard, Caleb Douglas Hesse, George Rekers, Pastor Eddie Long, Troy King, Richard Curtis, Glen Murphy Jr., David Dreier, Bruce Barclay, Roy Ashburn, Jim West, Ed Schrock, Robert Allen, and Phillip Hinkle to name a few. Next up is Rick Santorum, Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, and mike Huckabee are all due to be outed.

    Wow, a Jesus industry professional having no contact whatsoever with reality. That’s, um, typical.

  • Harley

    Oh, I left out the 2 biggest closet cases there are, Bryan Fischer and Fred Phelps.

    @Harley: Seriously, we really, really don’t want them.

  • westsideed

    If I watch his show, which I don’t, it would be because I could use a good laugh.

  • ouragannyc

    He makes me laugh very hard

  • DarSco

    It is just ….. Pat is just ….. He is like a crazy Archie Bunker! For those of you under 30 look up a TV show called All in the Family! LOL

  • OutnProud

    this coming from the same person who said that homosexuality might be a form of demonic possession. He also mentioned homosexuality might be a result of chromosomal damage. Last I checked Pat, you’re NOT a geneticist. Pat do us a favor and just keep your mouth shut. You’ll hopefully sound remotely smarter

  • CreoClay

    Oh, Pat, we watch you for the same reason we use to watch Jersey Shore or The Hills. ‘Cause you’re a damn train wreck,hunny.
