Pat Robertson: Men will cheat. Stop talking about it.

That’s the advice that Pat Robertson recently gave a women who asked his advice on how to move on after her husband had cheated on her.

“Here’s the secret,” he said. “Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he’s a man.”

Again, Pat’s co-host should have her salary doubled.  Or tripled.

CBN’s official response:

The “intent was not to condone infidelity or to cast blame. We regret any misunderstanding.”

    Pat… PLEASE retire…

    I think Pat’s cohost should resign on principle! Something along the lines of, “I cannot follow Jesus AND be on your show. They two are diametrically opposed.”

    Unfortunately he did have a nugget (a small one) of good advise among a truck load of crap! I don’t know whether his co-host is offended, but I am! I have not cheated on my wife and I hope (I know) she married me for more then my looks, ability to provide or whether i take the kids to sports games. If that is all that Pat thinks a marriage is based on then he has no basis for giving any advise much less marital advise! As was already stated, “Pat, please retire!”

    ok – i’ve had my problems with Pat and he really chose his words poorly here, but if you hear the whole context it’s not as bad as it seems as people pull out short quotes and imply that they represent the whole of Robertson’s statements.
    he’s advising the woman that if she wants to make the marriage work after the infidelity, she has to try to focus on other things. if she continues to hold on to the anger and bitterness of the betrayal, then she will never be able to be happy in the marriage. decent advice given in a sloppy way.

    Ok, I generally have Pat issues, but I will say that I will have to agree with Matt who said he had some good advice this time… he just gave it so awkwardly, and from a 1950’s perspective.

    And the whole part about the “stripper in the hotel room ten years ago” was a little creepy.

    Hello Todd Land;
    I’m not a PR favorite, but his advice has some merit. Perhaps the attitude, or seemingly lack of tact or insensitivity would merit criticism.
    Unfortunately people get stuck and can’t get out of their hurt, pain, bitterness, and disappointment or in this case being betrayed.
    Perhaps Pat’s “shock” treatment will help her move on. I’m assuming their divorced, separated or in the process. If they aren’t then there are deeper issues to take place.
    Pat’s okay on this one, but I have to chuckle a bit. Of course he isn’t endorsing infidelity, but we ALL have to get over being offended by a myraid of atrocities in our lives.
    It hurts to let the perpetrator go free, or seemingly go free without appropriate punishment.
    But that’s why we have to let it god and let God deal with. Yeah, I know that’s cliche answer, but it seems to be the only one that helps us move from being a victim to victor in this life.
    Blessings folks,
    James

    Way old story: Pat Robertson is a kook. He’s been a kook for quite a while. How is this news? Why is it being discussed? The news and other outlets have forgotten and written off teachers/preachers that are far more kooky than he is. There are far more important things to be discussing. There are multimillionaire preachers out there teaching that Jesus Wasn’t God with far more followers than this Alzheimer’s/dementia-ridden man.
