By now most of you probably have heard or have seen the clip of Televangelist Pat Robertson telling a woman how she can forgive her cheating husband. He advises her to stop dwelling on the past deed and look for the good within him - the positive. And though I'm not a Robertson supporter, I feel, that's pretty logical advice
if you're trying to forgive.
BUT he drops the ball when he says "well he's a man" and "males have a tendency to wander a little bit". He states it like it's a plausible excuse and goes on citing all the salacious trappings that men can fall prey to. He also suggests women should "make a home so wonderful that he doesn't want to wander." Wait a minute , doesn't the Ten Commandments say Thou shall not commit adultery? I mean they are simple laws. Does that mean men get a little wiggle room because of their nature? Ahhhh, I don't think so.
Who's making a mockery? In a Huff Post article it states "Pat Robertson doesn't think General David Petraeus should be condemned for his affair with writer Paula Broadwell. After all, she is "an extremely good looking woman" and "he's a man." (Again with that term. Get a better writer, will you please). And then he thumps on his Bible declaring it's against God's law for a man to lie with another. Hey Pat, does that thumpthump infraction have more weight than breaking the laws given to Moses?
I'm not trying to advocate any side of the gay issue. My point is if you have compassion and understanding towards a transgression shouldn't all transgressions receive that same insight and if you were strident towards a violation of God's law shouldn't all violations get the same condemnation?
To me, if you don't, it's hypocrisy,that's what I see here and it's a shame he has so many people's ears.
