WATCH: Pat Robertson Wants a Facebook 'Vomit' Button

The social networking site is a veritable den of sin, according to the homophobic televangelist.

While many Facebook users have been begging the social networking site for a "dislike" button to accompany the site's ubiquitous "like" function, televangelist Pat Robertson wants a more visceral way to express his disapproval.

On Sunday's episode of The 700 Club, Robertson said seeing a picture of two men kissing on Facebook makes him physically sick, according to video from Right Wing Watch posted at the Raw Story.

"Well, that makes me want to throw up," Robertson said, responding to a viewer who wanted to know if "liking" something on Facebook was tantamount to condoning the practice. "To me, I would punch 'Vomit,' not 'Like,' but they don't give you that option on Facebook." Robertson then nearly doubled over laughing, before confirming that "liking" a gay couple's photo on Facebook is, indeed, condoning that couple's relationship.

Later in the broadcast, the notorious homophobe railed on the Supreme Court for its landmark decision last month to strike down the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and allow the federal government to recognize legally married same-sex couples.

"For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right," said Robertson while citing Leviticus. "And this decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this. Well, the Bible didn't talk about civil rights, it talked about this was an offense against God, and it was an offense against the land, and the land would vomit you out."
