Pat Robertson: if your wife has Alzheimer's, divorce her

\"\"

I've come to anticipate high handed judgements from American evangelical leaders, but even I was surprised by the sheer thoughtlessness of Pat Robertson's directive to the husband of an Alzheimer's patient this week.

The troubled husband wrote to Robertson for advice on the right thing to do?

Divorce your wife, Robertson replied, but make sure she has 'somebody' to look after her, and then move on with your new life partner.

If you ever needed proof that Robertson has never understood love - straight or gay - there it is.

There's some Christian values for you. I'm sure Jesus, who Pat speaks for, would have told you the same (between sending hurricanes and droughts to punish the homosexuals).

If you only do one thing today, make sure it's to watch this short ABC clip, it'll break your heart:
