The Christian Broadcasting Network tried to stop these crazy comments from Pat Robertson from coming out, but it was too late. Robertson told 700 Club cohost Terry Meeuwsen that gay people spread HIV/AIDS by wearing rings on their fingers that cut unsuspecting people’s hands—and “that’s the equivalent of murder.” Really? Robertson tried to defend himself, saying he had been “misunderstood” because “people do not listen to the context in which the remarks are being said.” There’s not really any chance to see the context, however, since CBN pulled the YouTube video of the exchange.
