Till Madness Do Us Part

The other day on his “700 Hundred Club” program, Pat Robertson made a most astounding pronouncement in response to a man asking what advice he should give to a “friend” who began seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. “I’m not quite sure what to tell him,” the man wrote.

“I hate Alzheimer’s,” Robertson said. “It is one of the most awful things because here is a loved one – this is the woman or man that you have loved for 20, 30, 40 years. And suddenly that person is gone. They’re gone.” Then came the controversial kicker… “I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again,” Robertson said. “But make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her,” he added.

Robertson’s sidekick Terry asked him about couples’ marriage vows to take care of each other “for better or for worse” and “in sickness and in health,” to which Robertson replied that “This is a kind of death.”

So, what do you think…

Rick Perry’s Guiding Light

Texas Governor and current frontrunner in the race to potentially be the next Republican president talks candidly about the pivotal role of supernatural events in his life…

Good grief. Hasn’t the world had enough of American presidents that take direction from an imaginary creator of the universe? I realize that notion may be highly encouraging to so-called people of faith, but to those of us who reject religious doctrine and deny existence of a supernatural realm, the prospect of a leader such as Perry is downright scary. Who knows what lunatic mission the Almighty might supposedly task him with?
