Pat Robertson's Salafi-Style Advice For Cheating Husband's Wife

No stranger to controversy, 83-year-old televangelist Pat Robertson has done it again.  This time by blaming women if their husbands "wander."

During an episode of his "The 700 Club" a woman asked for help regarding her husband's cheating:

 “We have gone to counseling, but I just can’t seem to forgive, nor can I trust. How do you let go of the anger? How do you trust again?"
Before his co-host had a chance to respond, Robertson piped in with his advice: fahgettaboutit:

“Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you. Well, he’s a man. O.K.,” 

“Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat?” “Is he handsome?”

“Males have a tendency to wander a little bit, and what you want to do it make the home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.” 
Wow.  Sounds like something you'd expect coming from the mouth of some Salafist Imam.

And his comments regarding General David Petraeus' affair with Paula Broadwell:

“The man’s off in a foreign land and he’s lonely and here’s a good-looking lady throwing herself at him. I mean, he’s a man."
Methinks Robertson could be justifying to himself some past affairs he might have had?

What happened to "Thou shalt not commit adultery", Pat? That is a non-negotiable commandment. It doesn't say "Thou shalt not commit adultery, but if your partner doesn't make you happy, go for it."

It's people like Robertson who make conservatives and Christians look like hypocrites and buffoons.

The senile fool in his own words.
