Anti-LGBT rights televangelist Pat Robertson on Tuesday told Christian students that bullying their gay and lesbian classmates was wrong even if they "think that these practices are an abomination."

A CBN viewer named Douglas posed this question to the TV preacher: "What would you say to a school that has gay and LGBT students being bullied by the Christian kids?"

"Well I think that’s terrible and Christians shouldn’t do that," Robertson explained. "I mean, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, blah, blah, blah. You know, Christians shouldn’t do that. They ought to act in love."

"You might disagree, you may think that these practices are an abomination, you can think all sorts of things, but you need to love. And you need to reach out to these kids in love," he added.

"Bullying is wrong. Period," co-host Terry Meeuwsen agreed.

"Amen," Robertson said. "Schools shouldn't permit that either."
