What’s the best way to be a good Christian? According to a new, typically convoluted statement from the king of faux-compassion, Pat Robertson, the answer is simple: reject your gay family members! In answer to a TV viewer’s question on how, “as a Christian,” to best to react to a family member coming out, Robertson said:
“The last thing you want to be is judgmental, but at the same time, you want to be loving, and warm, and let them know that you love them. But! You cannot accept it. You cannot be an enabler. If they’re livin’ together as a homosexual [sic], you cannot say you accept this lifestyle.”
The strangest part of the clip comes when, out of left field, Robertson praises gay people for their creativity. “There are some homosexuals who have enormous capacity for artistic expression,” he said. “You find a lot of this in the homosexual community. Very talented people! And, you know, but, you need to have love!”
Listening to Robertson speak is more than a little painful, but if you’re so inclined, you can decipher his “uh’s” “um’s” and hasty clichés here on YouTube courtesy of Right Wing Watch.
