Here we go again. Pat Robertson is giving out more marital advice. Along with his co-host Kristi Watts, Robertson has this to say to 17-year-old Maxim, who says his father "spends too much time at the computer playing a war game" instead of paying attention to his mother, and wants to know what he can do about that.
ROBERTSON: It may be your mom isn't as sweet as you think she is. She may be kind of hard-nosed and so he says, my father, he's not paying attention to mom, but is mom ...
WATTS: How are you going to blame the mother?
ROBERTSON: It's easy to blame the mother! You know, a woman came to a preacher that I know—it's so funny—and she was awful looking. I mean her hair was all torn up, and she was overweight and looked terrible, clothes bad, everything. And she said, "Oh, reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink." And the preacher looked at her and said, "Madam, if I was married to you, I'd start to drink too."
We need to cultivate romance, darling. And it needs to be the men, have got to be cultivating romance, and the women. You always have to keep that spark of love alive. It just isn't something to just lie there ... Well, I'm married to him so he's got to take me slatternly looking. You've got to fix yourself up, look pretty.
In previous editions of 'Blame the Woman,' Robertson advised a man whose wife was suffering with Alzheimers to divorce her because she was, for all intents and purposes, already dead. Women who don't want their husbands to cheat on them should make themselves "as attractive as possible and don't hassle him about it," according to Robertson.
Robertson also told a caller who asked what he should do about a wife who insults him, “Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her,” Robertson responded. “This man’s got to stand up to her and he can’t let her get away with this stuff,” Robertson continued, “I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.”
Robertson is a total @sshat and a menace to society.
