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.
