Televangelist Pat Robertson has supported the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ efforts to crack down on masturbation. The LDS Church has recently declared war against masturbation.

“The Mormons might be a satanic cult, but they have the right idea about eradicating masturbation,” said Robertson on “The 700 Club.” “Masturbation is a gateway for all kinds of sins and perversions, such as suicide, anal sex, lesbianism, devil worship and liberalism.”

Robertson has become infamous for his off-color statements, which usually send his PR team scurrying to do damage control. He blamed 9/11 on lesbians, predicted Mitt Romney would win the 2012 election and also blamed the 2010 Haiti earthquake on African slaves making a pact with the Devil.

However Robertson, isn’t the only Christian preacher who has hit the headlines for his comments. An Alabama preacher recently blamed sex for a host of social ills, according to Raw Story.

“Sex, I think, well, sex is the biggest, the most reason, well, all the homeless, abused children in the world is because of sex. And 99.9 percent, I guess there’s been a few [intelligible] that was because of money then. But money and sex is the two worst things out there and sex is a mighty big one,” he said in a YouTube sermon.
