This just enrages me. So Pat Robertson thinks it's okay to divorce a spouse who suffers from Alzheimer's disease? Where does it say THAT in the Bible, Pat? And at what stage is it okay to file divorce papers? At the beginning, when she begins to forget where her car keys are? Later on, when he starts wandering around the neighborhood late at night?
I can't think of anything more cruel, or more selfish, than divorcing a spouse who begins to suffer from dementia because he or she no longer meets the "needs" of the other spouse. By the way, Pat -- is it okay for children to dump demented parents who no longer meet THEIR needs?
For shame, Pat Robertson, for shame!
Christians are supposed to be a loving and faithful witness to the world, not an embarrassment. Robertson's wife of 57 years should consider herself forewarned.
