Pat Robertson and Homosexual Parents

Hello Again,

I decided to add a new post that addressed the issue of homosexual parents and their parenting skills. I am married and have a wonderful wife and son, that being said; why can't the religious right and others move on with this issue. The only reason I believe it is an issue, is because they have made it an issue and have the "moral" authority to push it. I went to old Pats website and searched some of his "Bring It On" questions and found some inspirational advice about this controversial subject: Here is the Question....

My friend has two homosexual fathers as parents. They adopted him when he was a toddler, and now he’s 13 years old. I’ve been taking him to church lately, and he is really started to rethink everything they taught him. Is it wrong for him to confront them about their lifestyle? If they forbid him to go to church, what should he do?
Pat Robertson
It’s wrong for homosexuals to adopt. I think that they will lead children into the lifestyle they have. If you really care for somebody and you’re close to somebody, the biggest thing you can do to help them is to talk to them about the Lord and to share the Bible, not confrontational, but share the Bible. Whether or not these two hardened homosexuals would come out of that lifestyle remains to be seen. But at least the young man needs to get established in the things of God. And if you’re successful at that, God bless you. But as far as him going back to his, quote, 'two fathers' and confronting them, I don’t know. What do you think?
Terry Meeuswen
Well, I don’t think he should. There’s that saying, you hear it all the time. I’m probably not quoting it exact, but, 'Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if you must.' I think even as a 13-year-old, through being diligent in the Word of God, attending church with you, speaking lovingly to the two people who’ve been put in a position of authority in parenting over him, that he can be have more influence by not saying something and loving Jesus and letting God control his life that confronting them.
Pat Robertson
The biggest thing, though, is that they will try to get him into that lifestyle and that is the danger. Of course, I don’t know them. I mean, maybe that wouldn’t be the case, but I suspect it will be. And so the big thing is for this young man to get himself established in the Lord rather than confronting.

My Biased Comments:
1) The biggest thing is that they will try to get him into that lifestyle and that is the danger.
The real answer I think that Pat should have addressed was not the parents trying to get this kid into this lifestyle. They have allowed this kid to attend a church that probably knows his parents. He states that the parents will try to get him into that lifestyle; he already lives it on a daily basis and still attends church, apparently with no known issues, except for the fact that a "Christian Friend" has decided to ask Pat for advice about what to do. Chris Advice: Tell said friend to get the hell out of my life and business and stop corrupting this persons personal life. By the way, does this "Christian Friend" have homophobia himself, which begs another question; why did he postulate that said person has now started to rethink his position. To put it another way, there seems to be a hidden agenda by this "Christian Friend" because he has started to take this person to church and has been talking to him about God and why, "here is the key," it is wrong for him to live in this type of environment. I am a social scientist and have never seen any valid research that homosexual parents push their lifestyle on their kids. This seems to me as though a religious zealot has decided to brain wash this kid with his personal belief systems and turn him against his parents. Why to go; update on the score folks: God 1 Gay Parents 0.

2) Pat believes or suspects that the parents will attempt to push the Gay way of life on their child. News Flash: Pat Robertson has just been made an honorary member of the US Secret Service...Gay Vice Squad. He suspects, that is like saying Pat only pockets 99 percent of the money generated by CBN and their other holdings...although we have reliable estimates that is only 90 percent and he usually drives nice cars and lear jets. Stop using that "suspect" word Pat, it makes you look, well, suspect to most people with common sense, unless you are a regular viewer or caller to the Pay for a Prayer line. New Score folks: God 1 Gay Parents 1.

3) I have a gay family member and there have been many times he has came up to me and said I looked like I needed to be gay, well, he never really said that, but you good readers get the point I am making. It is outlandish for people to postulate that gay people can use the powers of subbersion and mind twisting to get others to be gay. It has been researched over and over in social science and 90 percent of the literature comes to the same conclusion; being homosexual is not a choice, nor do most homosexual people raise their kids to be homosexual. This has been invented by religious zealots and others, under the premise of raising awarness of the threat, more of less, raising their personal bank accounts. Wake up people, when will you learn an important fact of life, that people choose to associate with those they feel most comfortable with and those that share some of the same beliefs they do. Most of us Americans are not threatened by homosexuals on a daily basis, what has happened is that "Sexual Predators," the real issue is only getting less air time, google it and find out for yourselves. We have overlooked an important fundemental problem, we have let a few people decide "OUR" agenda and how it will play out. Score: God 1 Gay Parents 2

When we last left old Pat and Jerry, they were contemplating how to set up a multimillion dollar business to help minister to this great nation.

Day 2:

(Pat arrives in his new Cadillac)

Pat: Jerry, I have given great thought to what we have spoke about and believe we can make it happen.

Jerry: Good Pat, I have set up a secret meeting with my "friends" to help us get started. We must first define what our agenda will be and how we will push it to the american people. New research indicates that seniors are the most gullable segment of the population, along with 10-12 year olds. If this is correct, and I believe GOD says it is, this is where we must start.

Pat: Jerry, I talked to Oral Roberts...funny that GOD would call upon someone named Oral, but anyway, I spoke to him about his big showing with the tower scene he put on in Texas or where ever it was, and he said our plan seems fine. He did note, that if we push too hard, we might find ourselves burnt at the stake...funny, I thought me and you were the only ones permitted by GOD to burn people at the stake.

Jerry: Good...ha...ha...ha.. We shall start out today, lets get going. We can take my truck...no, now that I think about it, we would look much better arriving in a new caddy.

Pat: Jerry, you got 5 bucks, you know, to help pay for gas. No, Jerry, you can not borrower the money from me....well, can I trust you..are you good for it.

(Arriving at the Godly Sitting)

Jerry: Ladies and gentlemen, this is none other that the great prophet, Pat Robertson, my cohort...I mean business partner. Lets get to it... Joan O'A, where are we on the TV company purchase?

Joan O'A: Jerry, all is going to plan, we have decided to aquire...overtake a small tv company in Florida, located adjacent to a senior center...ha...ha. Also, Jerry, did you know that senior communities have great swimming pools and movie stars..

Jerry: No, I did not know that, who cares, we are birdwalking here folks. We need to focus on the tv programs that we will be offering...

Pat: Speaking of offering Jerry, I have just had another revelation: God spoke to me while I was sleeping and said: Pat, if you make outlandish and unfounded comments, just state that you mis-spoke...and also to come up with a "Miracle Weight Loss Shake," to sell to the masses..

Adam: Funny that you mention that Pat, I do not think people will by this shake if you, youself have not lost any weight...Just my thoughts Pat..

Pat: Nobody asked you Adam, anyway, it is not about me, Adam, it is about what the people hear, not see, that will make them buy. Just check the bible, there are many places where people bought or used things they did not need...like that big boat for the flood, we all know that all they needed was a tall wall on the high ground...or...the many trumpets to destroy that wall, all they really needed was a couple of bulldozers. Geez..you would think that people would actually read the bible and draw the same conclusions.

Tune in Tuesday for the next installment of: Pat and Jerry: How They Came to Be
