WATCH: Pat Robertson Urges Parents to Skip Child's Same-Sex Wedding


Attending the ceremony means they condone homosexuality, the right-wing televangelist says on his 700 Club show.

So much for unconditional support of one's children -- leading homophobe Pat Robertson says parents should under no circumstances attend a child's same-sex wedding.

"By your attendance at the ceremony, you are agreeing with it ... I just wouldn't go," the televangelist Thursday told a viewer of his TV show, The 700 Club, who wondered if she and her husband should attend their gay child's wedding. "I would tell your child, 'I love you but I cannot condone this. We will always love you but I don't condone this activity.'"

The parents were reportedly divided about whether to go, but Robertson urged them to "be in unity," with neither of them attending the wedding. He's offered similar advice in the past. In 2012, he told a viewer who asked if she should be a bridesmaid or even a guest at her lesbian sister's wedding, "'The answer is to tell your sister, 'I love you but I cannot participate a ceremony that is contrary to God's word, period.'"
