Senile Pat Robertson Says Divorce OK for Alzheimers

Apparently senile old Pat thinks that if one's wife gets Alzheimer's disease that it's just fine and dandy to divorce her.  His argument is that Alzheimer's "is a kind of death" and that "his wife, as he knows her, is gone".  Of course, this is the same guy who think that killing a single-celled, fertilized embryo with no brain or developed nervous system is "murder".  So, by Pat's argument, if Alzheimer's is "a kind of death", why does he not endorse euthanizing these individuals? As usual, he has not even remotely thought his position through, which is par for a the course for a guy who says that gay people and feminists are responsible for 9/11.  

Doddering old Pat also forgot another little part of the Bible called the _Sermon on the Mount_.  To wit, Jebus is quoted in Mt 5:31-32 as saying, "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery." Jesus doesn't appear to carve out any special exception for Alzheimer's.  Therefore Pat is just making up his own Bible, preaching that, and still using the brand name called "Christianity".

However, this apparently doesn't bother Pat, because he is the kind of Christian who sins as much as he can and then says, "Jesus will just have to forgive me!"  After all, Jesus was supposed to have died for sins and Pat wouldn't want the sacrifice of Jesus to have been in vain.  He wants to make sure that he gets as much mileage out of that sacrifice as possible.  

This is one reason that I say that Christians who take their faith seriously are quite dangerous, because, if they're like Pat, they think they can get away with anything and say, "It's OK because I believe in Jesus, so I've got a Get-Out-Of-Hell-Free card". Maybe that's why he has advocated assassinating world leaders and setting off nuclear devices in US government buildings.  Pat has turned Dostoevsky's dictum on its head to suggest that "If Jesus does exist then all is permitted (of believers)".
