The 700 Club has been a source of spiritual guidance for many, many, years. The trusted source at the helm of the program is octogenarian Pat Robertson, who is showing his age with the advisement that hasn’t changed since the program began in 1966.
On Wednesday, the televangelist really showed his age and antiquated perspective when a woman wrote in looking for advice on how to deal with her husband’s infidelity. The inquiry visibly ruffled Robertson’s feathers and the first thing out of his mouth was “Stop talking about the cheating!”
But that’s only the beginning. What came next might cause someone over 60 years old to even give him an open-hand smack to the face!
“Here’s the secret. Stop talking about the cheating! He cheated on you, well, he’s a man! Okay, so what you do is begin to focus on why you married him in the first place, on what he does good. 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?”
Did he just diminish this woman’s self respect and family life to dollars and cents? But wait! There’s more!
“I recommend you reach out and touch him, touch his face. Hold his hand. Look into his eyes. Talk to him.”
She’s going to reach out and touch him alright. Robertson should’ve stopped here, but he didn’t. He’s going to get somebody shanked in their sleep with this stuff. He said women are sitting up there praying the hatred off of themselves so they’ll stop the murder attempt on these men’s lives…but he didn’t make it any better.
“Oh God, keep me not to hate him for what he did when he was with that stripper in that hotel room 10 years ago and I’ll never forgive him kinda thing, please help me! Stop that! Focus on the good stuff…”
“Whether you like it or not, males have the tendency to wander a little bit and what you wanna do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”
Robertson better hire more security after this one. Does anyone still adhere to what he’s prescribing? And right before Father’s Day he brings up this foolishness. The Shahrazad Ali wing of hell is being built for his old ass as we speak. Check him out.
