Televangelist Pat Robertson on Wednesday claimed that being gay offers only unhappiness.

After airing a segment on one man's “struggle with homosexuality,” which ended, supposedly, after he joined a “support group for Christians caught in the gay and lesbian lifestyle,” Robertson lamented that mental health professionals no longer treat homosexuality as a disease.

“It used to be that psychologists would tell people how to come out of this,” Robertson told his The 700 Club viewers. “”Now they tell them how to stay in it and be happy.”

“Well, you'll never be happy unless you're happy in Jesus,” he added.

Elsewhere on the program, Robertson urged viewers to seek “freedom” from being gay.

“If you're into the homosexual lifestyle and you want freedom, [then] somebody is here to love you,” he said in urging gay viewers to reach out to the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).
