Pat Robertson: It’s The Woman’s Fault If A Husband Ignores Her
Reverend Robertson, with co-host Kristi Watts, heard from a 17-year-old who was concerned that his father was spending too much time playing war games on the computer and not paying attention to his mom.
ROBERTSON: It’s easy to blame the mother! You know, a woman came to a preacher that I know—it’s so funny—and she was awful looking. I mean her hair was all torn up, and she was overweight and looked terrible, clothes bad, everything. And she said, “Oh, reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.” And the preacher looked at her and said, “Madam, if I was married to you, I’d start to drink too.”
We need to cultivate romance, darling. And it needs to be the men, have got to be cultivating romance, and the women. You always have to keep that spark of love alive. It just isn’t something to just lie there … Well, I’m married to him so he’s got to take me slatternly looking. You’ve got to fix yourself up, look pretty.
