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.
