Pat Robertson Endorses Divorce if Your Mate has Alzheimers
by Moody Adams Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told his viewers that it is okay for a man to divorce his wife if she has Alzheimer's disease. There has been an outcry against the televangelist that means the public is not misled.
The controversial Robertson characterized Alzheimer's as "walking death."
The Internet has echoed with criticism of this justification of divorce.
The Christian position is the Biblical “till death do us part.” "For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away..." —Malachi 2:16
"Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder" (Matthew 19:6).
Jesus said Moses only allowed divorce, “because of the hardness of your hearts” (Matthew 19:8).
