Pat Robertson: In Mild Sickness and in Health, ‘Til Kind of a Death Do We Part

With cohabitation the norm, divorce skyrocketing, boys “marrying” boys, adultery somewhat destigmatized, and the term “baby daddy” increasingly slipped into ordinary conversation without a double take, there is no doubt that the sanctity of marriage as understood by western civilization for millennia isn’t as respected as it should be.  You might even say that marriage is under attack.

The latest example of culture gone mad with respect to marriage comes from that liberal . . . Pat Robertson???  Apparently so.  According to Robertson, it may be morally acceptable for a man to divorce his wife when she is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.  It’s not that Robertson no longer believes in the concept of “til death do we part,” it’s just that he sees Alzheimer’s as “kind of a death.”

Robertson is fill of crap of course.  Alzheimer’s or any other terrible illness is not a reason to divorce; it is a reason to love your wife or husband even more.  I hope Robertson retracts this one.  On the bright side, we may see liberals suddenly defending the sanctity of marriage, even if only for a couple of days.
