Say It Ain’t So Pat!

18 Aug

I am not sure why Pat Robertson has the capacity to make so many illogical and even scandalous statements on live Christian television.

Maybe he is absent a courageous board willing to hold him accountable. Maybe it’s due to his huge success as a broadcaster and many are intimidated to speak forcefully into his life and ministry. What ever the reason, it is simply unacceptable.

Pat’s ability to continually make what appears to be  “off the cuff” comments that lack any serious biblical reflection is dumbfounding to say the least. It’s absolutely embarrassing.  

 Simply recall that he recently  counseled a married man that he could divorce his wife with Alzheimer’s since her condition allowed them no intimacy. Pat felt that divorce was better than adultery. Now that is just whacked!

Now he has managed to  make another scandalous statement, but this time it’s about adoption. When you read this, bear in mind that “in Christ”, we have all been adopted into God’s family. I must confess that many of us are pretty messed up and on more than one occasion have acted stinkin weird.

Pat’s statement makes me sincerely appreciate  fine parents like Frank and Amy Freeman who carry the Father’s heart for adoption. Because of their compassionate love, their adopted daughter now has a wonderful  family to enjoy as she grows into a beautiful young girl.

In a recent broadcast of The 700 Club, a woman sent in a question about a man who wouldn’t marry her because she has children who were adopted internationally. If they were her “own” biological children, he would have no problem, she said. But because they were adopted, he saw too much risk.

  Pat Robertson’s female co-host bristled and said he was acting like a “dog.” Robertson disagreed. He said the man “didn’t want to take on a United Nations,” and that, after all, you never know about adopted children; they might have brain damage and “grow up weird.”

    WE ARE ALL FALLEN PEOPLE, IN A BROKEN WORLD, WITH A LOVING AND FAITHFUL FATHER. I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL THAT HE WOULD ADOPT ME WITH BRAIN DAMAGE AND AM WEIRD AND MAY NEVER GROW UP. THE MAN WHOSE WIFE HAS ALZHEIMER’S, DID HE VOW IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH? DOES HE HAVE ALZHEIMER’S AND FORGOT HIS COVENANT TO HER?

    I don’t believe he was adopted was he?  Then why is he acting so “weird”?  Maybe it’s contagious? Kathy

    Pat is seriously growing up to be a little “weird” himself – I think maybe he is loosing his mind now days… I can’t believe he actually told a man to divorce his sick wife. Doesn’t the marriage vows include “sickness and in health!” Seriously dude keep your pants on and stay faithful – take a cold shower or something! Pat’s off his rocker!
