VIDEO: Pat Robertson says gay people spread AIDS on purpose with special rings

Professional crazy person Pat Robertson still has a television show, but Freaks and Geeks got canned after one season. Sound fair? It isn't, but it's the way things work here in the good ol' U.S. of A.

Professional crazy person Pat Robertson still has a television show, but Freaks and Geeks got canned after one season. Sound fair? It isn't, but it's the way things work here in the good ol' U.S. of A.

During a recent episode of the Christian Broadcast Network's The 700 Club, Robertson explained that gay men who have AIDS spread the disease to unsuspecting straight people on purpose. What mechanism do they use to deliver the disease? Why, their special decoder rings, of course.

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands. However, one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson’s comments after they aired…

“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.”

Yup. This show airs, like, all the time, but NBC turned The Black Donnellys into webisodes after three episodes. This is the world we live in.

Robertson eventually issued an apology to The Atlantic as CBN tried to wipe the Internet clean of the remarks. You'll be surprised to learn that they were unsuccessful in doing so. The Huffington Post still has the footage. Check it out, below. [Right Wing Watch]

“There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody you had a heart attack, you can tell them they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody you’ve got AIDS,” he continued.

Despite Meeuwsen’s best attempts to steer the conversation away from Robertson’s anti-gay paranoia, Robertson insisted that gay people use special rings to transmit the virus.
