Pat Robertson "comforted" a caller on Thursday by telling her to be grateful she lives in the US of A, and to be a better wife to her cheating husband.
Here's some sage advice for the ladies from that brave defender of traditional marriage, Pat Robertson. Ladies, if your man cheats on you, try harder!

We'll call this "The Full Gingrich." Yes, love, honor, obey - and ditch when they get sick.
Finally Pat Robertson has come out on the side of the suffering - just like Christ. Those suffering with having a wife who's no longer up to Read more...
