If televangelist Pat Robertson is any indication, the “ick factor” — the idea that homosexuality should be opposed simply because straight people are turned off by it — is alive and well. On The 700 Club, Robertson explained that Christians shouldn’t use the “Like” feature on Facebook for anything the Bible condemns, like pictures of same-sex couples. He would prefer there be a “Vomit” button instead for such images:
ROBERTSON: What you’re saying is, “Yes, I like this kind of thing.” You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing. You “Like” that. Well, that makes me want to throw up. To me, I would punch “Vomit,” not “Like”… They don’t give you that option on Facebook.
