Television evangelist, Pat Robertson, tells cheated-on wife, “He cheated on you. Well, he’s a man, okay.”
Robertson, the host of the Christian TV Show, 700 Club, was responding to a viewer’s online letter. “I’ve been trying to forgive my husband for cheating on me. We have gone to counseling, but I just can’t seem to forgive, nor can I trust. How do I let go of the anger? How do I trust again? God says to forgive, but it’s been so hard to do. I want to forgive, so we can get on with our lives,” stated the letter.
“Here’s the secret,” responded Robertson while looking straight at the camera and into the homes of his viewers. “Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you. Well, he’s a man, okay.”
The evangelist gave a list of things that Ivy, the author of the letter, should “focus” on than the infidelity. “Does he provide food, shelter, clothing? Is he nice to the children and does he do things with them? Is he handsome?” said Robertson.
Another of Robertson’s “secrete” to forgiveness is to keep a better home for her husband. Robertson said that “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.” Also, Robertson excused a man’s infidelities on the many sexual temptations of the world. He said “keep in mind that there’s a lot of pornography out there, to which men are enticed every day.”
The popular minister said to stop praying about the “night he went to the hotel with the stripper”. “Don’t focus on what makes you mad, just the good stuff”.
Robertson finished his monologue by proposing to “Thank God you have a marriage that is together, that you live in America, and that good things are happening. Okay, next question.”
