Pat Robertson: Christians Bullying LGBT Kids In School Is Wrong

Posted: Updated:

Rev. Pat Robertson could not have been clearer during his 700 Club's question and answer period - bullying gay and lesbian students is wrong.

Roberston was asked by a viewer named Douglas: "What would you say to a school that has gay and LGBT (sic) students being bullied by the Christian kids?"

Robertson actually seems a bit shocked by the question, and answered: "Well I think that's terrible. Christians shouldn't do that... I mean.. lesbian, gay, transgender, blah blah blah, I mean.. Christians shouldn't do that. They ought to act in love."

He continued: "You may disagree, you may think these practices are an abomination, you can think all sorts of things, but you need to love, and reach out to these kids in love." To which his co-host repled: "Absolutely. Bullying is wrong - period."

Which got an "Amen" from Robertson.

However, viewers should not expect Rev. Robertson to join the It Gets Better campaign -- one of his recent broadcasts focused on how the devil is working to legalize same sex marriage
