Wingnut of the Day: Pat Robertson
TV preacher Pat Robertson tells viewer Catherine to keep her children away from her lesbian friend. Robertson warns that Catherine doesn't want her kids to become lesbians.
“You keep love, you loved her, you were close and your influence may have something significant to her, the idea is you don’t gain anything by shunning. But at the same you don’t want your children to grow up as lesbians, that’s what you’re talking about, you don’t want to show them that that’s an acceptable lifestyle for your family....It doesn’t hurt to tell somebody: I love you, we are going to do what we can to, be friends if we can. I have my lifestyle, it’s Christian and you have yours, it’s not; I’m sorry we can’t indulge in certain things together.”Robertson would rather have those children grow up homophobic than get anywhere near a lesbian. What a wonderful lesson to teach children
