Televangelist Pat Robertson on Wednesday laughed off a viewer's question about whether Christians must obey Levitical laws about menstruation.

“I was wondering if you could explain to me the difference in the Ten Commandments given by God versus the laws given in Leviticus,” an unnamed viewer wrote. “A coworker told me the other day that people can't consider themselves Christians if they don't obey ALL of the laws in the Bible. For example, in Leviticus, the Bible says that a husband cannot be in the same room with his wife on her period. Why don't we keep the Leviticus laws anymore? As Christians, is it okay to only follow the written law and not the Levitical law? I think this is also a major reason why Christians are called hypocrites all the time. What do you think?”

“I'm not sure where you found that either but nevertheless wherever you found it you don't have to worry about it,” Robertson said with a laugh, “because what you do is love each other. That you have love for one another. This is the commandment I give you. All the rest of it – love God, love your neighbors, yourself.”

But as recently as Monday, Robertson, the host of CBN's The 700 Club, held up the Book of Leviticus as proof that homosexuality is a sin.

“The Bible is very explicit about [homosexuality],” Robertson said. “In the Old Testament it's called an abomination. It's abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman. An abomination.”

Right Wing Watch notes that Robertson has previously explained away the Old Testament's dictates on violence, slavery and polygamy.
