Lifestyles of the Religious Nutball: Pat Robertson Endorses Divorcing Spouse If They Get Alzheimer’s Disease

Christian fucknut Robertson adds to his long list of insane comments. And in doing so, repudiates the words of Jesus

On the September 13 telecast of The 700 Club, braindead Christian fucktard Pat Robertson, all too famous for his history of cruel and insane comments, added to that long list with yet another comment that should have been followed by a group of mental health officials walking onto the set of the show and placing Robertson in his much needed straight jacket.

A question was read on the air from a viewer that said his friend’s wife suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and that his wife doesn’t recognize him anymore. He said his friend was bitter at God for allowing his wife to be in that condition and that he has started seeing another woman. The viewer said his friend thinks he should be allowed to see other women because his wife, as he knew her, is gone.

Here was Robertson’s advice:

“That is a terribly hard thing. It is…I hate Alzheimer’s. It is one of the most awful things, because here is the loved one, this is the woman or man that you have loved for 20, 30, 40 years, and suddenly that person is gone. They’re gone. They are gone…I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her.”

“Somebody” looking after her? You mean, like a husband? The kind of husband who will profess to love her “for better or worse”, “in sickness and in health” and “’til death do us part”? Someone like that? Aw wait, she already has a husband Robertson, you worthless, pathetic excuse for a human being.

watch the scumbag in action

Robertson’s co-host even brought up the fact that the vow you take is “for better or for worse”. Robertson’s response?:

“If you respect that vow, you say ’til death do us part.’ This is a kind of death.”

A “kind” of death? You mean, even though the person’s heart is still beating and they are breathing and they are not dead? I didn't realize there were several meanings for death in that vow.

The most mind-numbing aspect to this whole statement [other than the fact that Robertson is a bona fide and certified asshole] is that Robertson cannot even bring himself to suggest to the reader that even if his friend gets lonely and needs companionship, that it would be [even if not 100% OK, but at the very least] justified if he has a girlfriend on the side while still caring for his wife. No, not Robertson. Instead he suggests that the man completely abandon his wife and divorce her, leaving the job to ANOTHER PERSON.

Interestingly enough, Robertson, in suggesting divorce from and abandonment of the wife [the Alzheimer’s victim], is repudiating the very words of Jesus in Ephesians 5:25, which states:

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her”

Apparently, Robertson doesn’t think too highly of the Apostle Paul’s words and doesn’t really believe Christ loved the church. Or, it could be the fact that it is really Robertson's mind that is gone. Or, it could be the fact that Pat Robertson has a neurological disorder [required to believe the Bible in the first place] and he is about two more insensitive and horrendous comments away from the rubber room.

I go with all three.

You're on about Pat "NewWorldOrder" Robertson?

The nut who believes all the same things you do (religious crap aside?)

Aside from the religious crap, what's the difference between your "NWO" and Robertson's?



the_last_name_left said...

Among his policies, he wanted to....reform the education system, and eliminate departments such as the Department of Education and the Department of Energy. He also supported a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget.

Hey, sounds like your kinda guy, LArry.

Mr NWO says:

Our borders are very porous and there has to be some control over who comes in as students and who comes in, in whatever capacity.

Pat the nutball sounds like Larry.

Pat the NWO nut again:

The next thing we need to do is implement port security as a federal priority.

Hey, Mr NWO is a smart guy, Larry? Says just what you do?

So what's the difference? Aside from the religion?


Pat Robertson + nutball - religion = Larry + nutball

Already debunked you on this Robertson shit you keep bringing up. It was on another Robertson story I did. Stop using this tactic: Rehashing old debunked shit on new posts as if I never addressed it.

You often make a jump to use the word "all Christians" or some similar connection to include people that you do not actually know what they think. If one religious person is caught doing and saying something stupid, I am glad to know about it. But, it's not fair to presume you can indite all who believe in Jesus, in their crime of stupidity.. I would trust you more if you could just state the facts..and let us be judge and jury based on facts. You clearly are enjoying your emotional soap box to support you believe in atheism.. By reading on the emotional tone didn't always following logically.. But, please do tells us about what forked tongue people do and say..I love that..
