According to America’s most famous televangelist, sex acts between married couples are only a “sin” if the individuals participating are filled with enough shame.

Responding to a viewer question on his show Wednesday, Christian fundamentalist preacher Pat Robertson suggested that oral sex between a husband and a wife is perfectly fine — unless, that is, “If you feel it’s sin.” Then, “it’s sin,” Robertson said.

Watching the video below, it’s difficult not to feel bad for co-host Kristi Watts, who’s forced to read the question off a cue card, groaning in horror when she sees it.

“Don’t look at me,” she said. “I’m too young for that question.”

This video is from “The 700 Club,” broadcast Wednesday, March 14, 2012.
