Pat's been watching the pope and realizes people like you more when don't act like a giant douche. He ain't foolin' nobody.
 
2013-07-29 08:09:31 PM
He's just out of his farkin mind. Just like he's been for at least the last twenty years...

I don't think there's any sin associated with that. I don't condemn somebody for doing that."


You know Pat...I don't give a flying fark at rolling doughnut what you think, as if your an arbertrator of what's sin or not. That ego you have..that even to make what you "Think" is sin or not is amazingly self-serving.
Especially when it's not your place to "Condemn somebody for doing that"...HELLO..you can't do that unless you think farken GOD---asshole.

I think the saying should be moved from "Don't judge people" to "Don't judge people for things other than their actions".  If you never judge someone, you're going to live your life getting ripped off constantly by bad people.  There comes a point where you simply must judge people by the things that they do.

I'd like to think that he's finally coming around, however the realist in me thinks that this will be the basis of the fundamentalist's next argument?

"Like someone of the same sex?  Fine.  Then change."

Christianity finds homosexuality as a sin

Granted it gets a little complicated, but how can you be transgender without being in some sense homosexual?
 
2013-07-29 08:38:58 PM
Well if you're one gender one minute, another gender the next, as long as there's no homo-shenanigans in between, I suppose it's all good.

Homosexuality is about sex with someone of the same gender

Transgenderism is about gender alone.

Not all transgendered people engage in sexual relations with members of their same biological sex

He must have a family member who's transgendered. That or he had a stroke, either can explain that shocking episode of tolerance and rationality.

Pat Robertson IS a zero.

revrendjim: Granted it gets a little complicated, but how can you be transgender without being in some sense homosexual?


Because sexuality is far more complicated a concept than just binary emotional attraction and sexual desire. Especially when you start dealing with gender variants.

That's because most of these crackpot fundamentalist like the idea of a female with a pinga.

Interesting that the Christian community - of all stripes - are starting to pretend to be more tolerant, in very sharply defined, very fluid statements that can be backed down on with their base but will help to get young people and their disposable income into their churches.  It's almost as if they're starting to realize that the reason they're losing money and power is that everyone is tired of hearing how bigoted they are.

"I think there are men who are in a woman's body,"

Sounds like a pretty egregious mistake for God to put a man in a woman's body.

Oh, well!  Mysterious Way's and all that!!

I don't really care who farks who, but I was thinking logically: If in your life you have officially been both genders, then regardless of which one you prefer it is possible to connect the dots in a homo way.

I really don't care.

I'm going with the latter, quite honestly. I think he's finally lost whatever mind he had left.

This is just Pat Robertson becoming senile.

YOu know how your gramps becomes a raging racist in his old age, but you have no clue where it came from? This is what's going on, but the opposite for Pat
 
2013-07-29 09:15:05 PM
I think Robertson's been kidnapped by aliens and replaced with a look-a-like.  The idea that Pat would say something somewhat sane and humane on this subject just doesn't compute.

bmihura: I like that line of thinking.


Even then, it would not stop the religious right in America from discriminating against people for their sexuality or gender issues, or even just being a little more masculine or feminine from the norm for their gender.  You see, the Religious Right does not believe anyone did not have a choice to do this. They CHOOSE to be transgendered. They choose to be gay/lesbian. It's a "lifestyle". That's how they justify their actions to their conscience at night.

Is that really true?  Is there someone who's like "I'm a woman trapped inside a man's body... but that woman is a lesbian who likes other women"?  And in Robertson-land, does that count as hetero (considering that in TFA he says he's still not down with the concept without the operation)?  Honest questions.

And... why did I not think to post a picture of Janet Garrison scissoring Xerxes with that question?
 
2013-07-29 09:18:09 PM
I think the only reason why he's ok with it is because apparently, transsexuals found a loophole in the bible, so he's cool with that.

Oddly enough, Saudi Arabia is also very moderate about gender reassignment surgery.  Their policy is that it is acceptable if there is a "real reason", "other than vanity and a desire for attention".  If so, their government pays for sexual reassignment surgery as well.

It is "juristically compared to that of a physical hermaphrodite in Islamic Law. Once a physical hermaphrodite's dominant sexual orientation becomes clear, the hermaphrodite is thereafter considered to be of that gender."

This generous attitude probably stems from the problems associated with incestuous marriage in Arabia, producing far more than the typical number of children with all sorts of birth defects.  They are willing to spend the bucks to get good pediatric care, and take a sensible approach to it.

Super Chronic: Is there someone who's like "I'm a woman trapped inside a man's body... but that woman is a lesbian who likes other women"?


Ignoring the issue of what haploid cell they produce, part of the background of being transgendered is that the brain reacts in a similar manner to the sex they feel they are, even though the brain is not completely "femininzed" in the case of MtFs and "masculinized" in the case of FtMs.

Since this is the case, a transgendered individual dating someone of the same biological sex would in all reality be "straight", as the interaction is the same it would be if the person was born with a biologically female body and gender-normal brain.

The concept of sexuality and gender are distinctly separate from sex-linked chromosomes, except in chromosomal disorders, such as Klinefelters, Turners, Triple-X, and CAH.

Concepts of sexuality, if you're willing to look at them honestly, can get mind-bogglingly confusing in gender-variants.

That is totally true.  Whether that counts as hetero or homo in Robertson-land is anybody's guess.

If you want people to stop equating gender identity with sexuality, then maybe the lgbtqcbbqasdf community or whatever acronym they're using for themselves this week should split.

Yes. Clearly we know nothing of other people's intent with respect to any action, other than what they tell us, so it's only the action itself we may judge. The quotation many people are citing with this statement (Matthew 7) does not, in context, say that we should withhold judgement, but rather that judgement should be tempered with understanding of how you want to be judged.

And we should always bear in mind that past actions only have limited predictive value with respect to future actions, because circumstances and people are constantly changing everyone involved is limited by their own perception.
