If you know how the Perry, Santorum, Bachmann, and Gingrich campaigns crashed and burned in the GOP primaries I think you`d know why.

Oh, no sweat. I was raised Protestant (Church of Ireland, basically Irish equivalent to Anglican) but my father was Protestant and my mother Catholic. Though it was never a big deal in our house, when someone asked whether I was Catholic or Protestant, I would have described myself simply as "Christian".

I wasn`t brought up in a religious background as a kid - well, apart from sunday school and church every sunday. But it was never really discussed much at home, going to church on sunday was more just "something you did". But I was a MUCH more devout Christian than anyone else in my family, from say age 8 to about 17. Bible Camps, that kinda thing.

Love how the whiny guy`s side of the story is just accepted and the wife defined as deeply flawed.

And Pat is clearly regretful that you can`t just whup some respect into them anymore.

But Pat does say it`s ok to ditch a wife with Alzheimers. So the first time she forgets where she put her purse she`s gone.

Pat Robertson is a right wing bigot and does not deserve half the recognition he gets.

It seems easier for me to dislike Pat Robertson. I find him no different than Jim Bakker or Robert Tilton. People like this are charlatans. Televangelists give Christianity a bad name. I know it`s not the main reson *cough* (Catholic priests), but they do not help out the cause. Find spirituality or religion inside of you, not from some whack-a-doo on TV.

case in point, being a Christian does not provide you with a good moral compass. People do that on their own...

@justahuman: The bible strongly advocates both sides of most issues, making it pointless as a basis for your arguments.. You could justify just about any action through scripture, if you pick your verses carefully..

"Neither sex should take or dole out physical abuse in a relationship."

I rewatched the video. The line is "she even went as far as stretching her hand to beat me." I took that as she stretched out her hand to hit him but didn`t. If I was saying someone beat me I`d just say they beat me, not they "stretched out their hand". But I suppose the statement is ambiguous and could be taken either way. I agree that nobody should put up with physical violence or verbal abuse. But the advice Pat is giving goes beyond that and extols the view of the bible that women are property.

Pat Robertson is an idiot.

My wife is submissive to me, when it matters. She wants it that way though. I often try and get her to argue with me about philosophy and psychology. I think my wife and I have a wonderful relationship. She seems to like it too, although I annoy her often. XD

So according to @Justahuman, it`s right that women shouldn`t teach or have authority over a man? It`s amazing how the "word of God" usually reflected the cultural norms that were prevalent at that time.

On the other hand, that woman does sound like a real b17ch. But no matter how mean, no b17ch deserves to be brutally subjugated like women are in Saudi Arabia.

Most annoyingly he does avoid what would be a good solution: divorce.

Seriously IAB? I`m not fan of Pat Robertson (what I hear is 100% courtesy of IAB), but Pat Robertson was obviously JOKING! He does have some good advice like getting a third party involved and (putting it bluntly) grow a pair. Now it does annoy how he masks his own assumptions as the truth and insists on adhering to scripture.

I consider myself a pretty peaceful, nonviolent person. Don`t own a gun, don`t do martial arts or play computer war games. And then I hear this arrogant, ignorant old fart who has apparently teleported in from the 19th century and I start having sniper fantasies...

Congratulations IAB, you found ambiguity in The Bible but don`t understand sarcasm. Your intellect is beyond reproach.

"the verses you quoted didn`t really make the one he quoted any better. They say for men to treat their wives well and to love them, sure. But the other verse says that women should be silent and submissive. Men = love your wife. Women = be submissive to your husband and do what he tells you without question. Oh and women are the original sinners not men. Not exactly equal there."

No sin is greater than the other.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned fallen short of the glory of god.= Equality

So two children steal candy but the one who stole first is more of a thief than the other?the original thief is worse? is that your argument? Both man and woman were punished and cast out of Eden=Equality

And in case you missed it.

Eph 5:21

Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. = equality.

Christ died for EVERYONE= equality.

1 Timothy 5:1-2 Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.

uh i quoted Timothy,And yes they are both right :)

You got me sorry about the assumption,There are multiple Translations i read each one,They have the same message but different was of translating it.Someone whos read the bible cover to cover should know this :/ Its weird how things work out,i used to be an athiest until i started learning more about God reading the bible to use it as a weapon against believers but it started making more sense after educating myself i came closer to god,but i dont call myself a Christian necessarily,i see my faith as a relationship with God.

I don`t need to google Bible verses, thanks for the assumption though. I was a born-again Christian for many years in my teens.

You quote Ephesians (fairly) while I quoted Timothy (fairly also I hope). So, which one is it? They can`t both be right. No wonder there`s so many slightly different flavours of Christianity. It was one of the reasons that I couldn`t handle that religion anymore. Christians are all reading from the same book, right? I`ve read it too. Cover to cover, multiple times, I promise. It wasn`t a cheap google-shot on my part. My reading and understanding of what the Bible says, is the main reason that I`m now an atheist.

Davymid used a bible verse to offend,its not refuting a bible verse with another bible verse, i used Bible verses to more explain the one he used as ammo.which took away power from the way he was wielding it.

Also in 5:21

Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

This even applys to your own wife!!

1 Timothy 5:1-2 Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.

"A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner."

1 Timothy 2, 11-14

God also says in Ephiphesians 5:25-29

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,

And, back atcha CJ, if it were a woman writing in to Pat Robertson asking for advice on how to deal with her abusive husband, the advice would be entirely different. Pat Robertson sure as f*ck wouldn`t be advising the woman being abused by her husband that the core of the problem is that the man has a problem submitting to the woman`s authority.

See, double standards are a bitch, ain`t they? Since they work both ways and all.

I`m not even concerned with the "move to Saudi Arabia so you can beat her", I`m more than willing to assume that was a joke, or at least an off-the-cuff remark. As HolyGod already pointed out, the actual disturbing thing in this was his very sincere analysis of her as a woman as refuses to submit to authority. The authority being the man, of course. No surprise there, he`s an evangelical Christian who lives his life from Scripture (see my quote from The Bible below, where women are ordered to be in full submission to their husbands, and the husband is to have full authority over his silent woman).

CJ: He also said that scripture says that he can`t divorce his wife. I sure as hell don`t see him, you, are any other mouth breathers that want to ban SSM fighting to ban divorce. How does that make sense. face it...these right-wingers are douchebags.

Well the Saudi Arabia thing was a joke to me. I can`t stand religiosity but I can take a joke. Too me the troubling thing is what he says when he is being serious. Things like:

"He can`t let her get away with this stuff"

"Doesn`t want to submit to authority"

As if she is a pet.

I`m in Texas and I agree Pat should hurry up and die! He doesn`t even get the people that he is talking in the Muslim world are just like him. Delusional religious wackos. "I don`t think we condone the beating of women these days." The key phrase here "I don`t think...". drating ole codger!

Option 1. Withdraw the matrimonial favours. That`ll teach her a lesson! Her cars probably got electronic ignition so no rotor-arm to remove. Erm, Tell her to go outside immediately and tidy-up the garden, or else...
Option 2. Take out a large loan on the house, spend the dosh or deposit it overseas, get a divorce.

No sane person would ever support this man. He is the kind of person who needs to be shipped off to Texas. All of the crazies need to be sent there or Arizona, then we should have a huge wall put up to separate those two states from the rest of the US. In fact we should put up the wall and kick them out of the US.
