On Sunday, infamous right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson took questions from fans in his regular "Bring It Online" segment. A viewer named David wrote in and asked Robertson whether it was wrong to refer to two trans coworkers as female, "since they have had their gender status changed in the eyes of the law."

How did Robertson, who is notorious for making wildly anti-gay remarks, respond? Essentially positively: "I don't think there's any sin associated with that -- I don't condemn somebody for doing that."

This one has to be seen to be believed. Watch Robertson's remarks, after the jump (David's question begins at 2:28).
