Pat Robertson: still a winner.

Pat Robertson got asked how one should deal with pictures of same-sex couples kissing on facebook.  Somehow the answer was “wish for a ‘vomit’ button” instead of “close the fucking picture if you don’t like it”.

You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that? Well that makes me want to throw up,” he said.
“To me I would punch ‘Vomit;’ not ‘Like,’” he added.

“But they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”

It’s not the first time Robertson, 83, has used vomit to express his sentiments on homosexuality.

Robertson has also said the land would “vomit out” those who disobeyed the commandments of the Old Testament.

Just for clarification:

A being who kills all but eight people on earth via drowning?  Hand pat a “worship” button.

A being who commanded his followers to kill people who worked on Saturday, non-virgins, and more?  No vomiting.  Maybe if there was a “love more than anything in the universe” button.

It seems there is no crime sufficiently grisly to replace Pat Robertson’s adoration of the monster of the bible with nausea.  But two consenting adults kissing?  To Pat that’s a greater crime than murdering scores of people, mostly Christians, via hurricane in response to gay pride parades.

And this guy has more followers than PZ Myers.  They regularly listen to this insanity and keep tuning in to Pat Robertson for advice.  Religion makes people better?  Yeah, and arsenic makes your heart stronger.

    He only wants a “vomit” button because he can’t work out how a “stone to death” button would send rocks over the Internet.

    In a rational society, wouldn’t that be enough to put you on some sort of terrorist watch list?

      No. Let’s save terrorism for actually illegal killings and large scale property damage for political effect.
      I think it’s enough to have Pat and his org. categorized as a hate group.

        If someone had a book or a document that wasn’t protected by the undue respect that society grants to religion that had all of the injunctions in it that the OT has, and they went around preaching that everyone should follow this to the letter of the law as they do…we’d be extremely suspicious of that person.

    Strange. As a heterosexual woman, I admit I rather like pictures of two men kissing each other. Especially if the man are good looking. I like it a lot.

    I’ll be in my bunk…

      Also, for some reason, I think gay male couples are very cute. It activates the same squeeee response that cute kittens do; I have no idea why. The men in question don’t have to be attractive at all, either.

      Do you have any idea how awkward it is when it is two attractive men, though? Cuteness like a kitten and hotness? It confuses my lib … it feels weird.

        As a heterosexual dude, I can’t help but agree. Gay male couples are very often adorable. I can’t explain why.

        I don’t get the hotness, though, so not very confusing to me.

    • Divan Roets

      Yes, but there are even more heterosexual men who like seeing two women kissing, and that very likely includes Pat himself. Did he ever say anything about kissing lesbians?

    I think something got a bit screwed up with your quote.

      With the quality of thought Pat displays it is really, really hard to tell.
