Crazy old coot Pat Robertson wants you to know that you probably shouldn’t let any of your lesbian friends around your children because they might get their gay on them. The good news is, if you happen to have any lesbian friends, you can always cure them with the power of prayer. That’s pretty much Robertson’s thing. Tell them that you love them (not in a gay way, of course!), and let them know that you will be praying for them because, after all, that’s the “Christian” thing to do.
A viewer named Catherine wrote into the TV preacher’s show for advice, saying that she had recently reconnected with a childhood friend, who was a lesbian. She invited the friend to meet her children, but became concerned when she asked to bring her same sex partner.
“I don’t want her to think that I’m okay with her ways,” the viewer explained. “And I don’t feel comfortable having her around my children.”
“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.”
Yeah, so uhhh…there you go. Don’t have your lesbian friends over and tell them you love them and not expect them to gay up your kids.
