83 year old televangelist and media mogul Pat Robertson has uttered yet another controversial advice, (this time about infidelity) which has provoked outrage from not only women, but his fellow Christian leaders.
On last Wednesday’s episode of “The 700 Club”, a woman (identified as Ivy) whose husband has been cheating on her wrote “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 you let go of the anger? How do you trust again?
Pat Roberson replied,
“Here’s the secret. Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he’s a man. You need to focus on the reasons you married him. 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? Is he nice to the children… Is he handsome?”

“Recognize also, like it or not, Males have a tendency to wander a little bit, and what you want to do it make the home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander, or give in to the ‘salacious’ magazine pictures and internet filled with adult films” he said.
The Christian Broadcasting Network released a statement, saying,
“As a first step in the process, Dr. Robertson stated that she should stop dwelling on the cheating. Next, he recommended that she remind herself of all the reasons she fell in love with him in the first place so that she might try to fall back in love with him all over again.”
“Lastly, his point was that everyone is human and there is much temptation outside of the home, so she should do whatever she can to strengthen their home and relationship. His intent was not to condone infidelity or to cast blame. We regret any misunderstanding.” the statement concluded.
Negative comments poured in through the internet via Twitter and YouTube after this advice. Feel free do drop yours below.
