NOW: Anti-gay US televangelist says low carb diets ‘violate the principles of God’
Adamantly anti-gay televangelist Pat Robertson took to the 700 Club programme on his Christian Broadcast Network, this week to say that he thinks low carb diets, such as the Atkins Diet, go against the teachings of God.
“You get swollen joints, you get gout, you get all kinds of problems, where you ache like crazy,” Robertson told The 700 Club programme on the network that he owns.
“Everybody thought Atkins was wonderful and they’ve got all these scientific tests, but… The carbs are the fire that burn everything completely. Sooner or later, it violates the principles that God set down.”
Earlier this week Robertson admitted in an interview that he didn’t understand what the word transgender means, compared trans people to his castrated horse, and called LGBT “insane”, compared to “normal”, straight people.
