Pat Robertson: (basically): Pre Marital Sex is Okay (or to be totally expected) Because People are “Sexual Beings”

On Today’s Bring It On segment (Bring It On consists of television viewers asking advice of The 700 Club show hosts):

The female co-host agreed with Robertson’s position, saying if God doesn’t permit sexual sinners into heaven, “a whole lot of people wouldn’t make it in.”

Some woman wrote in saying she did the pre marital nasty and popped out a kid as a result of that years ago, and she now assumes God will not let her into heaven as a result.

(I was not aware that the only un-forgivable sin the Bible mentions is pre-marital coitus – or having children out of wedlock. It is utterly remarkable how completely ignorant some people are about Christianity. Does this woman never read a Bible?)

About people being “sexual,” Robertson feels that way especially about “young people.” Robertson made it clear that young people can’t but help get all sexy sexified and do the sex because of their “hormones.”

It’s not like anyone past 25 years old ever has any sexual urges, there Pat. Dream on.

I managed to avoid giving in to sex as a teen and 20-something, despite the sexual urges and hormones: it’s called “self control,” Pat.

Remember also, I posted on an older blog entry that Robertson had sex with his wife before marriage, resulting in their first son (search for the name “Pat Roberston” on the upper right side of this blog, in the search field, to find that post). Maybe Robertson’s own dalliance is why the dude is typically so easy on sexual sin.

Interestingly, and on the same show, Robertson shows no tendency to forgive a guy who has a porn habit.

Another woman wrote in to say her current boyfriend (BF) admitted that two years ago he loved him some porn, but now says due to therapy, he doesn’t touch the stuff.

Robertson still advises the woman to drop ex-porn boy like a hot potato. Why so forgiving about a woman who popped a kid due to pre- marital sex, but no mercy for some guy who USED TO have a dirty web site addiction?

Anyway, contra Robertson: while it may be true that some people have sex before marriage, not all of them do.

Not advocating here that Christians bash in the heads of fornicators or unduly shame them, but really, what a slap in the face to Christian celibates past the age of 30 for these Christian spokespersons who dismiss sexual sin with a shrug of the shoulders and a, “Meh, every body does it, so don’t worry about it” stance. And this stance is regularly adopted by Robertson and Christian bloggers, and preachers I see on TBN (Christian network).
