Pat Robertson Says Having Alzheimer’s An OK Reason To Get Divorced

This just gets my craw.  Irks me to no end.  Flat out pisses me off.  I guess you get my drift.

The Associated Press reports that past presidential candidate and leader of the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told his viewers that “divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s is justifiable”.  Robertson went on to say “I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her.”

Robertson’s co-host, asked about a couples’ marriage vows, you know that part about to take care of each other “for better or for worse” and “in sickness and in health.”

Pobertson replied “If you respect that vow, you say ’til death do us part, this is a kind of death.”

WTF? This is just on of hundreds of examples of how the new Republican brand of religion is 180 out.

Another example is The Gov’s visit to at  the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s, Liberty University, to bolster his religous creds no doubt.  In The Gov’s Speech the students cheered louder at the mention of guns than they did for his mention of living a moral life.

In my humble view, it appears that Republican Christians no longer recognize the teachings of Christ.  They view everything politically, even the Holy Text, The Bible.  I don’t think God would not recognize his so called Evangelical Christian followers.  You know the Teabagger ones that say f^%! the poor, Greed is Good.  The Apostle Mark wrote “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”  These very same so called Christians cheered “Yeah” at a recent televised Tea Party Debate, when asked if a poor 30 year old should be left to die if he did not have insurance.

Something has gone truly wrong if this is the modern Christianity.

  1. Atheist or do you just hate good southern christians? Jesus wants us to make as much as we can and as the Bible says The Devil loves an idle mind. Yours must be really idle to write this garbage about God hating rich people. Jesus taught everyone to go work hard and not rely on any government handout. I would hate to be in a church when you walk in because the roof will be falling in on you.

  2. When will you libruls learn that attacking good christians isn’t going to get you anywhere? Mr. Perry and his fellow candidatres are good god fearing americans. Just look at all the good thing Mr. Perry has done for Texas. He is a true God Fearing man. He has held Prayer events to help stop the evil taking over this country. Over 30,000 Christians came to hear him and pray with him in Houston. No other Governor or President would do that. And what’s the big deal with the rich? God teaches us that capitalism and self reliance is the path to salvation. The Socialist Democrats who hate God will disagree but they are wrong and will find out when they gt to hell.
