Pat Robertson Counsels Grandmother: Avoid Your Lesbian Granddaughter's Wedding!

CBN's "700 Club" had been less obsessed with homosexuality during the past month, but their ratings must have slipped a bit because suddenly they've been making digs against gay people and families on the television ministry.

The most recent example happened during today's Bring It On segment when co-host Terry Meeuwsen shared the following question by a viewer named Alice: "My granddaughter claims she is a lesbian after being raped 5 years ago. I've heard she is planning a wedding in March. I'm at a loss on how to support my son, his wife, and other family members. Should I go to the wedding -- hate the sin and love the sinner? I've prayed and prayed without any sense of direction. What are your thoughts?"

Here is Pat's response:
Pat Robertson: My thought is... I know you're supposed to love her, so by all means let her know that you love her but you cannot participate in a ceremony that you feel is wrong and violates your religious beliefs. And to go to that, you're denying what is very important to you. So you need to tell the granddaughter, "Look, I love you. I'm with you. I think what your doing is wrong and I cannot participate in your wedding." Period.
Just recently, Pat was asserting that gay people don't know real love. His efforts to counsel people away from the evidence of same-gender love and romance and to wedge distance between LGBT people and our hetero loved ones just serves to keep that blinders pulled down over the eyes of our hetero relatives.
