Christian shock jock Pat Robertston, who’s made a career out of shoving his bejeweled foot down his throat to the raucous applause of his viewers, has a suggestion for Facebook: Create a “vomit” button so he can barf all over the gays without ever leaving the home computer.

The suggestion came on Robertson’s 700 Club televangelism show after a concerned viewer offered him this question:

When we ‘like’ things on Facebook, if it’s something that goes against what is written in the Bible—such as pictures of same sex couples—is that considered condoning behavior? How do you explain this to new Christians or youth?

Robertson responded with this, followed by a cackle:

You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing. Do you like that?” Robertson answered. “Well, that makes me want to throw up. To me, I would punch “vomit,” not “like,” but they don’t give you that option on Facebook.

Robertson has previously suggested that you should divorce your wife if she has Alzheimer’s and that the Haitian earthquake was God’s retribution for 300 years of voodoo.
