Pat Robertson Says If You Make Your Home Wonderful Your Husband Won’t Cheat

So, Pat Robertson thinks that if your husband is cheating it’s probably your fault for being a bad homemaker? Really? I really, really thought, “Do not commit adultery” was an actual thing that applied to both genders. I thought that was big among the faithful. Sometimes I think wrong, though. According to Salon, on a recent episode of The 700 Club:

Robertson began by saying the wife should focus on the good about her cheating husband: “Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he nice to the children? … Is he handsome?”

“Give him honor instead of trying to worry about it,” he continued. “But recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”

How we will make a home that wonderful? I have some ideas.

  • Hire Willy Wonka’s architect
  • Knit blankets out of carrot cake
  • Assemble a team of intrepid birds to put on all your husband’s clothing on him in the morning
  • Whimsical dogs to fetch his slippers
  • Full scale invisible children’s choir the minute he pulls up in the driveway (like at Tara)
  • Make it smell like cookies all the time (run a cookie factory)
  • People love magicians! Hire a magician to do death defying tricks in your living room
  • Throw pillows, maybe? I don’t get them, but stores seem to sell a lot of them.

You now, actually, maybe it would be easier just to marry someone who seems disinclined to cheat. I can’t see myself buying a throw pillow.

    I’m dying to know his advice to men with wandering wives. I did a quick search, but had no luck.

    Oh, right. I could forgive a handsome man anything. Because I am super shallow. (/sarcasm)

    “Honey, Pat Robertson says I should honor you if you cheat. And I will. I’ll shove my honorable foot right up your ass.”
