In a move that is sure to endear his old, senile ass to women’s movements in Saudi Arabia and other nations where women are repressed, Pat Robertson tells a betrayed woman to stop worrying about her husband’s infidelity.
Pat Robertson is known for being an unhinged mouthpiece for right-wing conservatives, but who knew he also subscribed to the “Atomic Dog” philosophy of love and life? “Why must I be like that, why must I chase the cat? / Nothin’ but the dog in me.”
During an episode of The 700 Club, a woman wrote in to the show asking for advice on how to get over husband’s infidelity. She said she’d forgiven him but still had lingering feelings of resentment over the betrayal.
Pat’s female co-host proceeded with caution and talked about forgiveness being challenging and difficult. Robertson, on the other hand, went in the opposite direction and basically told her to get over the infidelity, feed him, fuck him and make him happy so he doesn’t stray ever again. Oh, and even if he does cheat in the future, it’s because it’s in his nature, so deal with it.

“Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you, well he’s a man,” Robertson advises.
Next he advises his female viewer to focus on the important things in life.
“Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he handsome?” Robertson adds.
The most important thing a woman can do to prevent a man from straying is to always remain hands-on in the relationship.
“Reach out and touch him. Touch his face. Hold his hand. Look into his eyes,” Robertson insists.
I have a feeling that Pat wants her to touch a lot more than just his face, but this is a family show so he didn’t wanna spell it out for her on national TV.
After doling out all of that sage advice, Robertson closes by saying that even if she does all of what he’s suggesting and her husband remains unfaithful, well, that’s just the way it is.
“Recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit,” Robertson says. “What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”
Right. The good ol’ blame the victim mentality with some “boys will be boys” thrown on top. When did that Biblical commandment about “Thou shalt not commit adultery” become optional and stop being a requirement of Christianity?
Here’s the funny thing: Back in 1998, when Bill Clinton was president, Pat Robertson was calling for his head over his improprieties in the White House. Let’s go back in time with this article from the Los Angeles Times.
In scolding tones, Robertson opened the two-day Christian Coalition conference by accusing Clinton of turning the Oval Office into a “playpen for the sexual freedom of the poster child of the 1960s.” He also called Clinton a “debauched, debased and defamed” leader.
Pat Robertson, you’s a damn lie. And a sneak. And a hypocrite.
As for the woman who wrote in seeking Pat’s advice, she better hit up Iyanla Vanzant and get her life fixed.
