Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday told The 700 Club viewers that the sin of the Biblical city of Sodom was pride, not homosexuality.

Robertson has previously stated that Sodom received God's wrath due to homosexuality.

“The name of this stuff is sodomy,” Robertson told viewers last year. “And it has to do with the city named Sodom that was given over to all kinds of perverse sex practices, they even wanted to have sex with angels. And God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.”

On Monday's show, Robertson alluded to Ezekiel 16:49 to assert that Sodom was destroyed due to pride, not homosexuality.

“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy,” Robertson said.

“Pride, the Bible says, idleness and abundance of bread, neither were they thankful, that was the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah. He didn't talk about homosexuality,” he added.

Brian Tashman responded at Right Wing Watch: “We'll keep this in mind next time Robertson says that homosexuality is inciting divine wrath.”
