Pat Robertson to elderly woman: Your husband is sick because you aren’t giving enough money to your church
Pat Robertson, medical expert and internationally renown financial advisor, recently shared his wisdom with an elderly “700 Club” viewer who is in such financial dire straits that she has to choose between tithing to her church or paying her husband’s medical expenses.
The woman, who is “retired and living on a small pension and Social Security income” and “barely [has] any money,” asked Robertson if maybe, after a lifetime of tithing, she could prioritize her husband’s heath care over her financial service to the church.
Robertson’s response? Of course she can’t stop tithing. In fact, her husband is sick because she isn’t tithing enough.
