Pat Robertson Suggests Viewer Become Muslim, Beat Wife

by at . Comments

Pat Robertson is at it again.

The controversial televangelist suggested that a caller move to Saudi Arabia, ostensibly so he can legally beat his non-submissive, disrespectful spouse.

On Monday's broadcast of his show The 700 Club, viewer Michael asked for marital advice, as his wife "has no respect for me as the head of the house."

Robertson's take: "Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her."

Robertson's co-host, Terry Meeuwsen, laughed at this. He wasn't done either.

"I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done to make her," he said, calling the unnamed woman a "rebellious child."

Since the Bible doesn't allow for divorce, Robertson urged they "move to Saudi Arabia," where, ostensibly, beating her would be more socially permissible.

So, there's your free advice Michael. Good thing this guy doesn't have a huge audience and isn't a widely respected figure among many ... never mind.

Looks like none of you have ever heard of sarcasm. He doesn't agree with wife beating, he was being sarcastic. He isn't a comedian but he was trying to be funny. It was just a joke for Pete's sake. Calm down sheesh.


wow, really? how effing ignorant is this? and why is he even on the damn channel? I think enough people beat their wives up in USA alone and they are not even relgiious, so why the hell does the caller need to move to a different country? and what makes muslims or middle east special? violence against women, married or unmarried happen in every damn place and religion on this planet. the caller needs an effing psychiatrist, not a change of religion and place. And while he is at it, he can take pat assholeterson with him.


he suffer "Alzheimer", folks!!


slowly but surely his kind are disappearing, I know not fast enough, but they are, hopefully the new batch of republextremist (phew) can be a little more tolerant.


Coming from that pompous asshole Pat Robertson, this does not surprise me at all. I hear that pompous Pat is a bully and an even bigger tyrant when it comes to his own family. He has always been so out of touch with life in general. Pat, this is 2012...WAKE THE FUCK UP YOU INSUFFERABLE ASSHOLE!!!!!


LMAO tooo funny... You could turn Muslim and beat her. I'm sorry but that is just too damn funny. Truly made my day


When stupid ppl say stupid things I wish we could just learn to ignore them. Why must we shine a light on them and their ignorance?


I dont what part is funnier. That she wont respect him as head of the house. Or that he has to make her. Or that they should switch religions and move to another country.Or that shes non submissive and an unruly child. The bible may not allow for divorce but im pretty sure it doesnt say change religions so you can beat your wife into submission either. So in a nut shell, this guy married a normal woman who can think for herself. He didnt know this when he married her? I hope she divorces him cuz hes an idiot!

Wv peach

Somebody needs to beat his ass! What a fool!
