Romney campaigner Pat Robertson tells man to beat his wife

Source: America Blog

Mitt Romney spent Saturday campaigning with religious right extremist Pat Robertson. Romney was using Robertson to "prove" that he's a "real" Christian.

Which is ironic, since most would question Robertson's claim to speak for Christianity. (It also makes you wonder what Mitt Romney thinks a real Christian is - if he thinks Pat Robertson is God's messenger.) Here's Mitt and Pat together at an event this weekend.



Yesterday, fresh off of campaigning with Mitt Romney just 48 hours before, Pat Robertson told a caller to his TV show to beat his wife. Via Right Wing Watch:

For example, today on the 700 Club’s “Bring It On” segment where viewers ask Robertson questions, one man wondered how he should go about repairing his marriage with a wife who “insults” him and once tried to attack him.

“Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her,” Robertson responded. “This man’s got to stand up to her and he can’t let her get away with this stuff,” Robertson continued, “I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.”

He later said the woman is a “rebellious child” and pondered if she has psychological problems. Robertson told the viewer that since he “can’t divorce her according to the Scripture, so I say: move to Saudi Arabia.”
Robertson's network has now censored the broadcast, but fortunately Right Wing Watch got it first:

This is a nasty story... but people need to know who Romney pals around with...

the fact that Romney has to depend on Robertsons support, shows a level of desperation, and lack of real substance

19. Excellent!

That is the perfect way to frame the argument.

Any ideas on how we can get this out.

Maybe you should send and email to the Ed Show.

4. Pat Robertson is a Lawyer, not a Man of the Cloth

He's no more a Minister than I am.

13. It was almost exactly a year ago Robertson said it was ok to divorce someone with Altzheimers. Why

anyone would listen to that man is beyond me. He's going to have some explaining to do when he goes before his Judge.

16. “can’t divorce her according to the Scripture"

EXCEPT if she has Altzheimer's, right Pat?


Televangelist Pat Robertson ignited yet another firestorm this week when he suggested on his program that divorce is an acceptable solution for a husband debating whether to stay with a wife who has Alzheimer's disease because the disease is like "a kind of death."

17. Good! Shine the light on this crazy man

Of course, his followers drank the kool-aid long ago --- so it matters not what crazy mysogyistic bullshit Pat spews out.

Someone should ask Mitt for his OP on this....

23. Ol' Pat's looking pretty frail these days. He must have stopped drinking his energy drink.

You know, the one that allows him to leg press 2000 pounds.
