Pat Robertson Is Cool With Transgender Identity

Surprisingly, televangelist Pat Robertson, in answer to a viewer's question, expressed understanding for the transgender identity, stating, "I think there are men who are in a woman's body. It's very rare. But it's true -- or women that are in men's bodies -- and that they want a sex change. That is a very permanent thing, believe me, when you have certain body parts amputated and you have shot up with various kinds of hormones. It's a radical procedure. I don't think there's any sin associated with that. I don't condemn somebody for doing that... It's not for you to decide or to judge." Well, that's progress. Perhaps Robertson can now stop making hateful comments about gays. Watch:

To quote Murray Slaughter, the character on The Mary Tyler Moore show played by Gavin MacLeod, "When an elephant flies, you don't get too upset if he doesn't stay up in the air very long." (Or something like that.)
