Televangelist Pat Robertson told a father that his gay son's plan to adopt a child with his husband was “wrong.”

Robertson, an ardent opponent of gay rights, gave the advice during The 700 Club's Bring It On-Line segment, in which he answers viewers' questions.

“My son recently got married to another man, and now he and his husband are trying to adopt a child,” a viewer named Jacob wrote. “I feel like this would be unfair for the child. What should I do?”

Robertson advised the father to speak out against the adoption and pray.

“I think you ought to pray about it and I think you ought to speak out about it,” Robertson answered. “If you sincerely feel, as I do, that this is wrong … it's violating the Scripture and they need to know it. This so-called lifestyle is … I just can't believe that they have tried to destroy marriage. And marriage is between a man and a woman.”

“So what should you do? Well, you better get down on your knees and pray and let the Lord take care of it, because [there is nothing] else you can do,” he added.
