12 Reasons We Feel Bad for Pat Robertson's Wife

Adriana Velez | May 16, 2013 Breaking

pat robertsonOh Pat Robertson! You say the silliest things. This week, while he was answering questions on the Christian Broadcasting Network, a woman called in to say her husband had cheated on her and she was having trouble forgiving him. Pat's sage advice? Be grateful for how he provides for you and try harder to make him happy. Seriously. He made excuses for men who cheat and he told the woman to fall back in love with her husband (beg your f*cking pardon?!?). "Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he nice to the children?”

Okay, so if you're a stay-at-home mom, just shut up and take what you can get from the guy. That's ... awesome. But you know what? That's 100 percent Pat Robertson. Honestly, I don't know why people bother asking his advice for anything, unless for troll bait. Here's a few other crazy things Pat's said.

  • Be a Good Homemaker So Your Husband Won't Wander

    "Like it or not, males have a tendency to, uh, wander a little bit and what you want to do is to make a home so wonderful that he dosen’t want to wander."

  • Feminism = Witchcraft, Obvs

    2

    "[The] feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians."

  • Women Can't Play Chess

    "The key in terms of mental ability is chess. There's never been a woman Grand Master chess player. Once you get one, then I'll buy some of the feminism..."

  • Husband Is Head of Household

    4

    "I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period."

  • Earthquake in Haiti Caused By Signing Pact With Devil

    5

    "It may be a blessing in disguise. ... Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. Haitians were originally under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal. Ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other."

  • Liberal Americans = Nazis, DUH!

    "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media, and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."

  • Gay Days at Disney World Will Bring On Hurricanes

    "I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor."

  • What Separation of Church and State???

    "That was never in the Constitution, however much the liberals laugh at me for saying it, they know good and well it was never in the Constitution! Such language only appeared in the constitution of the Communist Soviet Union."

  • Liberals Helped Make 9/11 Happen

    9

    "Well, I totally concur." Pat Robertson after Jerry Fallwell blames the September 11 attacks on "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians ..., the ACLU, People for the American Way."

  • Methodists Are the Spirit of the Antichrist

    "You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist."

  • Just Nuke 'Em/Us

    11

    "If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer." Pat on the U.S. State Department
