Pat Robertson: Jesus Doesn't Mind If You Divorce Your Spouse With Alzheimer's
Pat Robertson, the guy you can't even call a delusional, militantly homophobic, fearmongering warrior of Satan because that description essentially understates the case by several orders of magnitude, has a small clarification to make about Jesus's stance on traditional marriage. It's still all "till death do you part" and whatever, but people who have Alzheimer's are pretty much already dead according to God (God, you know, that old white guy who made Alzheimer's disease along with everything else), so it's cool with Pat Robertson if you want to divorce them a little bit ahead of time:
Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson told his 700 Club viewers that divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer's is justifiable because the disease is "a kind of death."
During the portion of the show where the one-time Republican presidential candidate takes questions from viewers, Robertson was asked what advice a man should give to a friend who began seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from the incurable neurological disorder.
"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," Robertson said.
