On Friday, Pat Robertson praised a man
who left “the homosexual lifestyle” to find “real love.”
The 700 Club profiled Robert, a
self-proclaimed ex-gay man who blamed his problems on his sexuality,
which he blamed on an abusive father.
“I was living a homosexual life
because I was seeking attention,” said
Robert, who is now married to a woman.
“Robert chose the homosexual
lifestyle because he craved attention from men,” Robertson
said in response to the segment.
“We have all these myths about
homosexuality and he was just being used by people. They just wanted
to take advantage and he didn’t know any better,” he said. “He
thought that what they were showing him was love when actually it was
one form of lust. When he came free, he wasn’t ‘homosexual,’ he
was a person looking for love. He wanted the real thing and he got
it. God gave him real love.”
