Pat Robertson can’t figure out why people think he is anti-gay. That’s right, the man who claims to have a direct line to the Almighty, who is able to see the future just can’t imagine why reasonable people think he’s an evil shameless lying bigot. What’s anti-gay about blaming gay people for 9/11? What’s anti-gay about telling everyone that God’s gonna go all Sodom And Gomorrah on the USA for allowing gay folks to have equal rights! What’s anti-gay about saying homosexuality is like pedophilia? What’s anti-gay about wanting a Facebook “vomit” button to rate photographs of gay couples.
Well take heart. It turns out that in Robertson’s ‘mind’ none of that stuff is actually anti-gay, because gay people aren’t really gay. That’s right, they’re just confused straight people, so ipso facto, Robertson can’t be anti-gay! How convenient!
“A lot of people are into this homosexual thing because they’ve been abused by a parent, abused by a coach, abused by a sibling, abused by a friend, they’re little boys and little girls and they don’t know any better and then they somehow think, ‘well I must be gay,’ they aren’t they are heterosexual and they just need to come out of that,” said the *not* anti-gay Robertson.
