Have you ever experienced the betrayal of a loved one? Has your man ever strayed and left you heartbroken, confused, and angry? Well – it was your fault. That’s the lesson Pat Robertson – famous televangelist, God-lover, woman-hater and douche bag – wants us all to learn.
On a recent episode of The 700 Club, Robertson and his female co-star attempted to answer a letter from a viewer who was upset that her husband cheated and was having a hard time forgiving him. His female co-star had this to say: “Forgiveness can be one of the most difficult things in the whole wide world to do. Especially when it comes to a spouse, because that is one of the ultimate betrayals.” True that. You have a point. Here’s what Pat had to say:
Here’s the secret. Stop talking about the cheating! He cheated on you. Well, he’s a man…
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? Do you have a happy family? Is he handsome?
Start focusing on those things, and essentially fall in love with him again.
Stop talking about it and fall in love with him again! Totally. That will be easy, because picturing my husband naked with another woman is a total turn on. Oh wait. No it’s not. Does he provide a home, food and clothes for me? What is he – my captor? Welcome to 2013, where most of us provide that for each other. I buy my clothes, my food and pay my share of the rent, so what now?
Touch his face. Hold his hand. Look into his eyes. Talk to him. And you pray, “Oh God, teach me not to hate him when he was with that stripper in that hotel room 10 years ago…” give him honor instead of trying to worry about it. Recognize, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit. What you want to do is make the home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.
Wait, hold up. He was with a stripper? Oh, hell no. And it’s my fault because our home wasn’t “wonderful” enough?
Pat, stick to your specialty – condemning all of us sinners to the fiery pits of hell – and save the doling out of marital advice to the those who actually live in this century.
