Pat Robertson Has No Time For Christians Who Accept Gays

He's just a peach, isn't he?

The increasingly predictable Pat Robertson has no time for Christians who are accepting of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. 

The right-wing televangelist, who has been outspoken in regard to his deep opposition to LGBT rights, warned a "700 Club" viewer to "stay far away" from a church with an openly gay pastor this week, Right Wing Watch reports.

"It's an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman," Robertson said. "There's no question about it, and to have a church saying it's not a sin, it's OK... they’re leading people down the road to perdition, which is a shame." He then concluded,  "If I were you, I’d stay far away from them."

The remarks, of course, are perfectly in line with Robertson's history. In July, he blasted the Supreme Court's June 25 ruling on same-sex marriage, arguing that the justices had used "faulty sociological grounds" in legalizing marriage equality.  

"Watch what happens, love affairs between men and animals are going to be absolutely permitted," he said. "Polygamy, without question, is going to be permitted, and it will be called a right."

Earlier this year, he told a concerned mother to "pray that God will straighten out" her teenage lesbian daughter, who had recently come out of the closet.
