Pat Robertson says a bunch of stuff

Interesting Pat Robertson commentary… Who answers your questions…

And so, because one thing comes after another, we go from one thing to another.

The viewer wanted to know how to address images of same-sex couples on social media sites, such as Facebook.
You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that? Well that makes me want to throw up,” he said.
“To me I would punch ‘Vomit;’ not ‘Like,'” he added.
“But they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”
It’s not the first time Robertson, 83, has used vomit to express his sentiments on homosexuality.

Yes.  “It’s not the first time Robertson has used vomit to express his sentiments on homosexuality” is an actual sentence used in a news article.

But that is yesterday’s news… quoted far and wide in a “har de har…. did you hear what Crazy Pat Robertson said” manner.  We now skip from there to … the big story of the moment in “Viral” land… and a “Wait.  What?”

His endorsement of sex change operations.

I link to this conservative website just to get to this comment:
it is just an extreme example of selfishness and the simple fact that certain people can’t deal with life as dealt...
Um… My head hurts on where that logic will get you…

Okay, here’s a fuller quote from the Huffington Post… just the part that everyone loves.

 A viewer named David wrote in asking how he should refer to two transgender femaleswho work in his office and have legally changed their genders. Instead of criticizing the trans individuals, Robertson approached the situation in a seemingly level-headed manner.
“I think there are men who are in a woman’s body,” he said. “It’s very rare. But it’s true — or women that are in men’s bodies — and that they want a sex change. That is a very permanent thing, believe me, when you have certain body parts amputated and when you have shot up with various kinds of hormones. It’s a radical procedure. I don’t think there’s any sin associated with that. I don’t condemn somebody for doing that.”

And as these things go (skipping past the garden variety made every damned week or so persecution complex), Pat Robertson continues to open his mouth and answer your questions and it’s back to

An individual wrote to Pat Robertson’s 700 Club asking for help because the house is apparently infested with ghosts doing what ghosts do — flipping the lights on and off, changing the TV channels, and impersonating people with blue lights around their hands and feet.
Robertson really can’t take this question too seriously, and I for one can’t blame him. He doesn’t say, “Troll, begone!”
But he does burst out laughing as he pitches ideas like burning down the house or moving out.
He also reminds the viewer that Christians are not really supposed to believe in ghosts, so there’s that.
So Robertson floats the idea that the house is really infested with demons instead. No use calling in Ghostbusters. It’s time for a good old-fashioned exorcism where you thump the Bible and demand that the entity depart in the name of Jesus.

Different audiences grab onto different Pat Robertson quotes, I guess.
