Televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday decried anti-gay bullying as wrong.

Robertson made his remarks during a The 700 Club segment in which he answered viewers' questions.

Co-host Terry Meeuwsen read the viewer's question.

“What would you say to a school that has gay and LGBT students being bullied by the Christian kids?”

“Well I think that's terrible,” Robertson answered, “and Christians shouldn't do that. I mean, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, blah, blah, blah. You know, Christians shouldn't do that. They ought to act in love. You might disagree, you may think that these practices are an abomination, you can think all sorts of things, but you need to love. And you need to reach out to these kids in love.”

“Absolutely,” Meeuwsen said in agreement. “Bullying is wrong, period.”

“Amen,” Robertson added. “Schools shouldn't permit that either.” (Watch the segment at

Robertson's remarks come just days after the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) annual Day of Silence, in which students across the country take a vow of silence in opposition to anti-gay bullying and harassment.

A counter protest, the so-called Day of Dialogue, organized by the Christian conservative group Focus on the Family, encourages students to “express their Biblical viewpoint in a loving Christ-centered way – especially when sensitive issues, like bullying and sexual identity, are addressed in their schools.”
