Here is the video of Robertson’s original “Divorce your wife who has Alzheimer’s” comments:
Here are Robertson’s comments concerning him being “misunderstood” and “misinterpreted” in the above video:
So, are you convinced? Did we really “misinterpret” or “misunderstand” what Robertson said? I don’t think so. Even if Robertson was telling one person to divorce his wife who has Alzheimer’s and start all over, he still told an adulterous man to divorce his sick wife! If one man can do it, then why not other Christians who are in similar situations? Robertson, I think your explanation is a sorry cover up of your previous statements. Why don’t you simply admit that you said something blatantly unbiblical, and apologize for it? The Christian community is a forgiving community; but, if you don’t seek forgiveness, and place the blame on your audience, your “misinterpreters,” you will lose them; and rightfully so. At this point, I’m not sure what Pat Robertson believes about marriage. I guess it depends on what day of the week you ask him.
What are your thoughts?
