If televangelist Pat Robertson is any indication, the âick factorâ â the idea that homosexuality should be opposed simply because straight people are turned off by it â is alive and well. On The 700 Club, Robertson explained that Christians shouldnât use the âLikeâ feature on Facebook for anything the Bible condemns, like pictures of same-sex couples. He would prefer there be a âVomitâ button instead for such images:
ROBERTSON: What youâre saying is, âYes, I like this kind of thing.â Youâve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing. You âLikeâ that. Well, that makes me want to throw up. To me, I would punch âVomit,â not âLikeââŠ They donât give you that option on Facebook.
