Pat Robertson, known lunatic and all around crazy person, has a new scandal for 2013. The discredited television evangelist claims that Facebook should make a “vomit” button for people to click when they see a picture of a gay couple.
This isn’t the first crazy statement Pat has made (far from it, in fact), it’s just his most recent one. This is, of course, the same gentleman who blamed 9/11 on women’s rights and claimed that homosexual sex is the same as bestiality. He has gone so far to claim that homosexuals should be stoned.

Today, however, Patty is making news for saying that seeing gay couples on Facebook, “makes me want to throw up. To me, I would punch ‘Vomit’ not ‘Like’ but they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”
Homosexual marriage is a touchy subject for Robertson, who many feel is gay, himself. In the past, he went on record as saying:
“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this. Those who do that, in the Old Testament, were stoned to death.”
While those remarks are wildly offensive, they don’t even come close to Robertson’s most bigoted and ignorant quotes. Take this one, for example. Here he is advising a man whose wife was stricken with Alzheimer's:
"I know it sounds cruel, but if he's going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but to make sure she has custodial care and somebody [is[ looking after her."
