We already knew Pat Robertson was a ghost from the past.  But today's edition of The 700 Club was yet more proof of just how out of touch he is.  

One of the questions from today's "Bring it On" segment came from "Ivy," a woman seeking advice on what to do about forgiving an unfaithful husband.  Robertson's response?  A wife whose husband cheats on her should be thankful that he provides for her and treats the kids well, and that she should "give him honor instead of trying to worry about it."  He then had the audacity to suggest that a woman should wonder what she could have done to keep her man from cheating.  No, this isn't snark--see for yourself, and pile up the dislikes.  The segment about the cheating husband begins at around the 1:55 mark.

Even for a guy who thinks that victims of child abuse can "consent" to being molested, this is simply breathtaking.  

The thing that amazes me is that he was actually able to say this with a woman, Kristi Watts (Terry Meeuwsen was off today) as his cohost.  Almost as breathtaking is Watts' reaction--she just went to the next question as if nothing had happened.  Makes you wonder what it takes to be a woman working for CBN.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
