Former Southern Baptist minister Pat Robertson, 83, said during his "700 Club" show that liking same sex couples' photos on Facebook is considered condoning behavior and added that he'd prefer to punch the "vomit" button to describe how he feels about the images.

Robertson's comments came as a response to an online question posed by a confused fan:

"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?"

"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."
