This Stuff Almost Writes Itself…

Originally from The Huffington Post:

Pat Robertson is an idiot…

Responding to a question from a viewer, Robertson said that married men “have a tendency to wander” and it is the spurned wife’s job to focus on the positive and make sure the home is so enticing, he doesn’t want to stray.

“I’ve been trying to forgive my husband for cheating on me,” the viewer writes. “We have gone to counseling, but I just can’t seem to forgive, nor can I trust. How do you let go of the anger? How do you trust again?”

While Robertson’s co-host hedged on the question, calling forgiveness “difficult” and spousal infidelity “one of the ultimate betrayals,” Robertson got right to the point.

“Here’s the secret,” the famous evangelical said. “Stop talking the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he’s a man.”

The wife needs to focus on the reasons she married her spouse, he continued.

“Does he provide a home for you to live in,” Robertson said. ‘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?”

Robertson also offered a little advice on the “tendency of man.”

“Recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit,” Robertson said. “What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander” or give in to the “salacious” magazine pictures and Internet filled with porn.

In January, Robertson told viewers that “awful-looking” women can cause marriages to lose their spark.

  1. Wow. Sadly I know many people that believe in this verbal vomit demeaning women and belittling marriage and commitment. And many of these people are supposedly prominent, in politics, driving our country, on TV, and revered for their opinions.

  2. ..“Does he provide a home for you to live in,” Robertson said.
    ‘Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear?
    Is he nice to the children?”…

    Wow…I learn something new everyday!
    Thank you Robertson, for enlightening me
    on the level of idiocy to which you have in such abundance.

    And thank you Scott lol
    Getting indignant is much better than relying on coffee to get me moving 😉

  3. Every single person is responsible for his or her own actions, and to suggest anything less than that is ridiculous – particularly in light of his range of influence. Shame on him.

  4. This is so ridiculous!! On a more positive note, I have though of your post “What’s a Guy to Do?” several times since reading it. It has made me see the dynamic between my husband and I in a different light. thank you!
