Pat Robertson delivered another one of his bizarre, fact-free diatribes in response to a reader question, this one so embarrassing that they edited it out of the show when they posted it online. This time he claimed that gay men wear sharp rings to deliberately cut one another in order to transmit HIV.
ROBERTSON: You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people, so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger.
ROBERTSON: Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.
