  1. Is this Situation Ethics? LOL, poor Pat, he can't keep his theology str8. God surely will send an earthquake, hurricane or something his way.

  2. When did Satan take over Christianity?

  3. What ever happened to, "in sickness and in health, till death do you part"? Can't he remember his own vows he made before god?

  4. What did Robertson say after the video was abruptly cut off mid-sentence? I distrust video sources that do not appear to deliver the whole story, but cut the "offensive" speaker off right at the point that he or she is about to say something moderate, or mitigating, or otherwise counter to the negative storyline the video's author is promoting. It's not dissimilar from videos that are chopped and edited, and we love to vilify the right for doing that. It's manipulative. I am not saying that Robertson's comments are not offensive, but I think we're missing half the story here, with the editing.

  8. Selfishness is the heart and soul of evangelical christianity -- and republicanism.

  9. A disgrace to real Christians everywhere. What would Jesus do, Pat?

  10. Now there is some Christian values for ya

  11. I agree with Michael W.: that snippet may not be all the remarks Robertson made. But what he did say--reeking in 'situational ethics'--does fly contrary.

  12. Ah yes, the sanctity of marriage that he and the other christians so vehemently defend. What were those parts about better or worse...in sickness and in health - were they supposed to mean something?

    Seriously they have the audacity to claim that gays would undermine the sancity of marriage? Seems like they've already done that on their own.

  13. Pat needs to check with his 'original' source. It would tell him that one marries for life - period!!! That's not my belief, but it ostensibly used to be his.

  14. Oh, I get it. Now that the ol' lady is broken, just dump her and move on. She'll be OK, just leave her out behind a nursing home somewhere, they'll take her in. Just forget about those wedding vows you said before God and everybody, they don't count anymore.

    This guy is so twisted. I wonder if he'd give the same advice to a woman who was in the same situation. Doubtful because women are supposed to be submissive in all things, right?

  15. OY

    sometimes OY sums it all up

  16. Totally agree with him this one time. This person no longer remembers her husband or their vows or their life. Make sure she is cared for and move on. I don't see any other option. There is no reason for the rest of his life to be spent in misery, especially when she doesn't even know.

  17. Well now we know what the straights think of the sacredness of the marriage they want to protect all for themselves.

    Just like the Republican Debates Monday night, the crowd cheered and clapped and shouted "Let him die" when the dilemma of an uninsured seriously ill patient was put to Ron Paul.
    These people are not Christians......they are complete bigots....they were the lynch mobs of a few generations ago, they were the racists of segregation, they are the recent torturers of Cheney......they have to be faught at every street corner,,,,,,they are all about their own power and self interest.....and they certainly don't believe in "society" or even in a UNITED States, they believe in their own individual welfare and F_ck everyone else. that sounds like a definition of evangelical !

  18. Lee Keels then you deserve the same treatment from someone

    Most likely though you are single and or will remain single

    Posted by: say what | Sep 15, 2011 9:31:22 AM

  19. @Lee,

    but you still know THEM. :(

    My Jaja stayed with my Babcia until the day she died, putting up with the insults, holding her hand...when I asked him how he did it, his reply was:

    She may not remember me, but I remember her. I remember everything.

  20. Went on-line to see if the 'whole' clip is out there. Can't find that, but the story is carried in press from the Christian community to Main Stream media. The AP asked his staff for clarification and they responded 'no comment.' Sounds like the clip here is not out of context.

  21. @Rin: wow! how touching and true! talk about true love! wow!

  22. Now there's some good old-fashioned family values for you.

  23. @ RIN: Thanks !

  24. @RIN

    ditto on what Kodak said

    "...She may not remember me, but I remember her. I remember everything.

    Posted by: Rin | Sep 15, 2011 9:36:25 AM"

    thank you for sharing, and that is very touching

  25. if more people followed his advise, we would have never had the movie and book "The Notebook", so there would be some positives, just saying
