Ridiculous Quote….

This ridiculous statement made by Pat Robertson is not new, (it was made during the 700 Club on May 15th) but as I’m playing catch-up it was new to me.

Pat Robertson has advice for women who are struggling to forgive their cheating husbands: “Well, he’s a man.”

On today’s 700 Club, Robertson told a woman whose husband was cheating on her that she should stop focusing on the adultery and instead ponder, “Does he provide a home for you to live in, does he provide food for you to eat, does he provide clothes for you to wear, is he nice to the children…is he handsome?”

After encouraging the woman to focus on the positives rather than her husband’s adultery, which Robertson imagined to be a one night stand with a stripper in a hotel room, he said she should “give him honor instead of trying to worry about it.”

He also suggested the woman could have done more to prevent her husband from cheating: “But recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”

“What you have to do is say, ‘My husband was captured and I want to get him free,’ ” Robertson said, concluding that the woman should still be grateful that she lives in America: “Begin to thank God that you have a marriage that is together and that you live in America and good things are happening.” – (Robertson Tells Woman Whose Husband Cheated to Remember ‘He’s a Man’ and be Grateful She Lives in America)

If any pastor had ever counseled me in a similar manner I’d think he’d lost his marbles.

  1. Pretty much everything that passes through his lips is foolishness.

    • Sadly i agree. What happened to him, is it just his age catching up? There was a time when i really enjoyed the 700 Club…back in 1980. In fact God used the personal testimonies of changed lives through Christ they’d air daily, to help lead me to Jesus.

      He needs to retire. 😦

  2. No, I think he’s spot on for his faith. Robertson is a stalwart voice as a prince of the Church of America. How he eloquently describes the god of the Forfathers and his christ, the United States of America. You guys didn’t think he believed in Jesus, did you?

  3. Reblogged this on The Master's Slave.

  4. Sometimes…a good hard slap…such stupidity.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
