Televangelist Pat Robertson Condones Divorcing a Spouse With Alzheimer’s Disease (VIDEO)

Pat Robertson has unleashed another humdinger.   

In response to a viewer’s question on The 700 Club, the televangelist said it was OK to divorce a spouse who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Robertson then added, “"But make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her."” 

When Robertson’s co-host Terry Meeuwsen asked if marriage vows like “"in sickness and in health”" should apply,   Robertson went on to explain that Alzheimer's is a “"kind of death.”   

After the awkward exchange, the evangelist conceded that maybe an ethicist should make the call in these situations.
