Responding to a mother who caught her 14-year-old daughter “engaged in unsavory acts” with a female friend, Pat Robertson said today that she probably “doesn’t know what her sexuality is” but “it’s unlikely at that age that she has homosexual tendencies.” If the mother wants to “revert” her daughter’s behavior, Robertson believes she should prevent her from seeing her friend anymore and explain to her what the Bible says. Watch it:

Contrary to Robertson’s belief, studies show that young people are often aware of their sexuality by early adolescence even without any sexual experiences, occurring on average between the ages of 9 and 11. (HT: RightWingWatch.)
