Pat Robertson: Gays Should 'Un-Acquire' Their Sexuality (VIDEO)

Right wing pundit Pat Robertson has spoken out against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the airwaves yet again, advising a father to encourage his openly gay son to "un-acquire" his sexual orientation.

On "The 700 Club," the Christian Broadcasting Network's flagship news program, Robertson also made a point of re-iterating his view of LGBT people not being "born this way," noting: "Normally speaking, a person who has acquired this can un-acquire it. We've had many people who have indeed left the homosexual lifestyle and gone into a heterosexual relationship and have been very, very happy. But all I can say is love the son, love the son, and show him what you consider a better way."

Earlier this month, Robertson sounded off on the Obama administration's pledge to use U.S. foreign aid to promote LGBT rights abroad, noting, "This country cannot continue to violate God's principles and to make a mockery of His laws and think we're gonna get away with it."
