Pat Robertson Wants 'Vomit' Button On Facebook For Gay Photos: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Former Southern Baptist minister Pat Robertson has criticized homosexuality time and again, but this time, he`s addressing same-sex couples on Facebook.


During an appearance on his 700 Club show, he discussed whether  `liking` photos of gay couples on Facebook was a sin and a sign of condoning the behavior.

He said that he`d prefer click a  `vomit` button to express how he feels about such images. "


It`s easy for intelligent and rational people to dismiss Pat Robertson as a crazed televangelist or as a senile old man.

But we need to keep in mind that Robertson influences millions of evangelicals, some of whom are unhinged, and will interpret his homophobic remarks as a license to beat up and kill gays and lesbians.

The Rev. Robertson doesn`t have to "like" pics of gay couples on Facebook, but by the same token he doesn`t have to use an image of a gay couple as an excuse to spew his homophobic remarks.

I wonder how many of Robertson`s male followers secretly like photographs of hot lesbians, but publicly express their disapproval of pics depicting male homosexual couples to display their God-fearing masculinity?

If Facebook had a "vomit" button Pat Roberson would be drowning in vomit.
