Pat Robertson gave some bizarre advice on the 700 Club television show today to a woman who said her husband had cheated and she found it hard to forgive him (video below).
While Robertson's co-host called adultery one of the most "ultimate betrayals," the 700 Club host defended the man, and criticized the wife and the media, reported RightWingWatch.org.
Instead if giving Biblical advice on adultery (grounds for divorce), Robertson told the wife to stop "talking about the cheating. he cheated on you, Well, okay, he's a man,"
"What you do is start to focus on why you married him in the first place on what he does good. 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, do you have a happy family? Start focusing on those things and essentially fall in love with him again," advised Robertson.
Robertson also lectured the wife to “give him honor instead of trying to worry about it. But recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander."
Robertson blamed the media for the husband's adultery: "Think of the temptations out there. The Internet is filled with pornography. The magazines are filled with salacious pictures of women. What you have to do is say, ‘My husband was captured and I want to get him free."
“...Begin to thank God that you have a marriage that is together and that you live in America and good things are happening.”
