Televangelist Pat Robertson warned a viewer on Thursday that she should be careful when allowing lesbian friends into her home because “you don’t want your children to grow up as lesbians.”

A viewer named Catherine told the TV preacher that she had recently reconnected with a childhood friend, who was a lesbian. She invited the friend to meet her children but became concerned when she asked to bring her same sex partner.

“I don’t want her to think that I’m okay with her ways,” the viewer explained. “And I don’t feel comfortable having her around my children.”

Robertson advised the woman not to “shun” her friend, “but at the same time, you don’t want your children to grow up as lesbians.”

“That’s what you’re talking about,” he said. “You don’t want to show them that that’s an acceptable lifestyle for your family.”

“It doesn’t hurt to tell somebody, ‘Look, I love you and we’re going to do what we can to be friends if we can, but I have my lifestyle, it’s Christian. And you have yours, it’s not. And so, I’m sorry, we can’t indulge in certain things together.’”

Robertson predicted that the woman’s friend would “respect” her honesty.
