Pat Robertson: Gays With Aids Wear Rings To Cut, Infect Others
Pat Robertson made an <a href="https://www.huffpost.com/entry/pat-robertson-aids-rings_n_3824401" target="_blank">outrageous comment</a> in August 2013 on an episode of the 700 club, in which he claimed that gay people suffering from AIDS in cities such as San Francisco wear "special rings" that allow them to cut and infect other individuals with the disease.
Right Wing Watch reported that particular comment from the broadcast was edited out of the clip the Christian Broadcasting Network later posted online. The Huffington Post could not immediately reach a CBN representative for comment.
“You know what they do in San Francisco? Some in the gay community there, they want to get people. So if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” he said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.”
