WATCH: Doddering Pat Robertson Says Homosexuality Like “Demonic Possession”

“It didn’t matter who he did it with—because Shawn wanted it that badly! He was hungry for it!”

No that’s not the lead-in to some trashy erotica. It’s senile fundamentalist hypocrite Pat Robertson setting up a segment about a pathetic victim of the ex-gay movement who married a woman but inevitably sought out men on the side. Fortunately, Robertson claims, “Shawn” has returned to the fold through “repentance and deliverance from the homosexual lifestyle.”

“That type of conduct is wrong and it is time that in society we say certain things are wrong,” Robertson preaches. “He’s obsessed, he has a compulsion,” he added. “I think it is somehow related to demonic possession.”

Someone’s obsessed, but it’s not Shawn.

      The magistrate, relying on spectral evidence, shall call for blood once again. Blessed be the peacemakers.

      lol this is hysterical.
      you’re right Pat, adultery is somewhat related to demonic possession. must be. what other explanation can we possibly come up with for people cheating on their spouses?

      that’s why we should perform exorcisms on all adulterers, whether they’ve cheated with people of the same sex or people of the opposite sex.

      No…what is wrong is that this closet case could not come to terms with his sexuality and married a woman. He is probably still trolling the internet and streets for sex. You cannot ‘pray the gay away’. He should embrace it and stop listening to these disgusting people like Pat Robertson. Listen to your heart. Let that poor woman go to marry someone that wants her and get out an live the life you were meant to live!

      Uh, Pat, you HAVE been saying it for decades. You haven’t exactly been silent on this issue. It’s just no one is listening anymore. Wake and smell how irrelevant you are.

      Ok, after this video again (saw it first on HuffPost), I can effectively say, as an ex gay survivor, that this propaganda is dangerous and should be outlawed. This man is brainwashed.

      Many people have believed that homosexuality is the result of demonic posession. Some former gay people have gone through exorcist rights and have been healed of thier homosexuality. They now have families and lead normal lives. Cristians dont hate the sinner but the sins-we love gays and want them to heal themselves and become free of the evil which has them in its grip.

      “Many people have believed that homosexuality is the result of demonic possession”. Yeah, and many people are really fucking stupid too. You’ll have to excuse the rest of us who don’t adhere to your low standards MelvinPaul.

      “Spectral evidence” harkens back to the Salem witch trials. We, who choose to be authentic about ourselves and choose to be truthful about ourselves are likened to have demonic possession, when Christ thought so little on the subject that He said nary a word. Perhaps Jesus understood what rabbinical Saul (Paul) could not.

      Sorry MelvinPaul, but that isn’t true. You can doubtless find a few people who tell you it’s true for them, but like Pat’s friend Shawn they are not happy and eventually drift back towards lovers that line up with their biology. Those that don’t are simply so unhappy with their life that they have tons of related problems.

      The way to know is of course to look at scientific studies of ex-gay therapies, studies that start at the beginning and follow people until the end. It’s deceptive to pick the people who are in the middle of their journey towards acceptance and say that they are “cured” of homosexuality. The objective studies show a success rate no greater than random noise.

      No. 18 · 1equalityUSA wrote, ““Spectral evidence” harkens back to the Salem witch trials.”

      The term refers to something related to “spirits” or “ghosts”. The funny thing is that there are terms like “spectral lines” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectral_line has a description with some graphs) that are used in physics, chemistry, and astronomy. When I first saw the term “spectral evidence” above, I read it (for a a second or so) as evidence based on spectroscopy, just a short way of saying that, not what Robertson actually meant.

      Measurements of spectral lines were important in showing that the universe is expanding – particular substances show patterns of spectral lines, not just single lines. There were some patterns that did not make sense until it was realized that these were red-shifted due to gravity and the Doppler effect (if you listen to a train go by, the pitch of its whistle will suddenly shift due to this as the frequency is different when the object is moving towards you than away from you, and a similar phenomena exists for light). In particular, the red shift increases with the distance.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redshift has a summary

      Yes yes blame it on “demonic possesion” rather than taking responsiblilty for you own selfish actions. The dude is a slut! He wants the best of all worlds and he’s kind of getting it. Most of us don’t get what we want in life, but most of us don’t hurt other people in the process (or we try not to) however, If you’re a christian, you can simply blame it on DEMONIC POSSESION and pat robertson (and god) will forgive you. Thank god I’m an Atheist…

      Don’t be that hard on him (the “sinner”, not Robertson). He probably grew up in a homophobic environment and tried to suppress his sexual orientation, which only worked for a while. Now he’s been “saved”, which at best means he manged to screw the lid back on the pot of boiling water. He could well end up going through cycles of “sinning” and being “saved”.

      The other victim, of course, is his wife. If it wasn’t for people like Pat Robertson, this guy could have ended up happily married to another man.
