News flash: sexual orientation caused by pedophile priests?

According to the Pat Robertson (yes, THAT Pat Robertson) gospel:

"I am not at all persuaded that so-called homosexuals are homosexuals because of biological problems. They're may be a very few but there are so many that have been made homosexuals because of a coach or a guidance counselor or some other male figure who has abused them and they think that there's something wrong with their sexuality so you need to get deep into why he is what he is instead of just saying "he's a homosexual so how do I handle him and how do I be Christian?" Well, I think you ought to tell him "Listen, son. Here's what the Bible says about this and it's called an abomination before God so I've got to tell you the truth because I love you." That's what I think."
Off-camera, Pat Robertson said he doesn't mind however when 'male figures' such as coaches, family members, neighbours, priests or ministers sexually abuse girls and young women because that would rightly make them heterosexual.


Okay, I imagined the last part though it's perfectly consistent with the perverse views of this gynophobic, doomsday-predicting, despot supporting, snake-oil selling, idiot religious fanatic.


Pat Robertson - because what the world needs right now is more hate speech from yet another religious fundamentalist crackpot.

I guess lesbians don't exist, in Pat Roberts-land.

Oh but they do. One of Robertson's more notorious quote is: "The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians."

Busy, busy lesbians!!!
