Pat Robertson Outrage: "Hard-Nosed," "Awful Looking" Women Are Ruining Marriages!

Once again, women are the problem, men are cool. Why women cling to a religion that despised them is beyond me.

Radical Christian televangelist Pat Robertson with one of his most offensive statements of all time.

January 10, 2013 

It always seems to be the woman’s fault. No really—check this one out.

So, a 17-year-old boy writes in to Maxim magazine, complaining that his father never pays any attention to his mother.

“I’m 17 years old and I’ve noticed that there has been a change in my father’s behavior,” he wrote. “He spends too much time at the computer playing a war game. I’ve noticed how alone my mom feels. I just want my father to spend more time with my mom. What should I do? How can I talk to my father? I feel shame for him. Please help.”

Luckily for this perceptive 17 year old, the radical Christian conservative Pat Robertson is on the case—and his answer is, well, exactly what you’d expect from this radical Christian televangelist.

He starts off with the suggestion that the boy try to get his parents out of the house on some type of romantic weekend getaway.

“The romance is obviously going out of the marriage,” he said.

But then—BAM! Robertson draws the woman-hating card, throws it on the flower-decorated glass table in the 700 Club’s studio and suddenly it’s the mother’s fault.

You know, it may be your mom isn’t as sweet as you think she is, she may be kind of hard-nosed. And so, you say it’s my father, he’s not paying attention to mom, but you know mom…” he trails off and offers a spiteful little chuckle.

All great advice for a 17-year-old boy growing up in the United States’ enduringly patriarchal society. But wait—there’s more: Now it’s not only mom’s fault for being “hard-nosed,” it’s also her fault for being God forsakenly ugly.

He launches into another story: “A woman came to a preacher I know—it’s so funny. She was awful looking. Her hair was all torn up, she was overweight, and looked terrible…”

So far, this story sounds hilarious Pat, Please continue.

“And she said, ‘Oh, Reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.’”

The hateful punch line is coming. I can feel it. I’m on the edge of my seat.

And the preacher looked at her and he said, ‘Madam, if I were married to you, I’d start to drink too.’”

Pat Robertson is a hateful individual. He is also a misogynist. And a proud one too.
It is not women's fault that your penis is so small and shriveled, Pat, your god made it like that. The ways of The Lord are mysterious indeed, Pat, but if he chose to give you such a pitiful puny phallus, it is his will and you must accept it.

I hope Pat is around for a long time, he's the face of christian idiocy. 

Now on a serious note: women and religion. I too have a problem figuring out why women cling to religion so much, especially patriarchal religions that are misogynistic at their very cores. It is a sociologically complex subject. Sometimes I wonder if many females end up clinging to religion because they are unhappy and feel vulnerable and they feel that god somehow will protect them, perhaps they feel god is not as judgmental and snarky, they feel that they can be loved, even by an imaginary being, who will not put them down because their hair is not perfect, their face is getting wrinkled, etc., etc. I remember when I was in Catholic school, I once asked a nun who was very friendly and had a great sense of humor, why she had become a nun. I really liked her as a person, she was always sweet and understanding with us kids and never raised her voice or threatened us with punishment. She was tall and gangly, and according to conventional standards, ugly. She told me when she was in junior high school the boys mocked her for being awkward and ugly, and that a nun told her she had the perfect boyfriend for her, Jesus. He did not care that she was ugly and was going to love her all her life if she dedicated her life to serving him. She thought it was a good deal. Her answer made me very, very sad!

Maybe some believe the original sin bullshit and feel it is there duty to be property.

People cling to religion because they have fear of death.
Perhaps women are on average more afraid than men?

I think here you've answered your own question, Adriana.  For so many disappointed or searching women, Jesus is the perfect boyfriend or, more broadly, the perfect devotional object, always loving, never critical.

But that is the point not all nuns were beauty challenged. I have through out my life seen nuns who stunners ! So why they become nuns is hard to understand. 

But just because the woman in the relationship feels neglected doesn't automatically mean she is ugly. I've noticed couples that appear to look in the mid thirties to early forties where I wonder why his missus is still with him as some of us male don't age very well, now do we? 

If you gave Pat some viagra he'd stand a little bit taller. He's all dick.

Yeah a useless one!

Precisely!

With or without, he could certainly use a good rubbing.

I'm very glad I didn't watch this televangelist Pat Robertson because I would have become extremely angry.
