Robertson: Marriages are ruined by ‘hard-nosed’ and ‘slatternly’ women


Guy starts playing more video games and paying less attention to his wife. Son worries about his parents, writes to Pat Robertson for advice. Pat, naturally, blames the wife.

“Pat, how are you gonna blame the mother?” “Easy!”

Yeah, when your worldview is that the man is the head of the household and can do no wrong, obviously it has to be the wife’s fault. And in this case, it’s her fault because she’s ugly. Surely the number one cause of divorce is women becoming less bonerrific, amirite guyz?

Wonder how I became a feminist through atheism, as I’ve described previously? Well, this is a prime example of religiously-motivated gross injustice, right here, and religion is rife with such rank misogyny. Becoming attuned to it in religious teachings also opened my eyes to the myriad secular injustices against women. So now I’m a feminist, through atheism, despite some antifeminist atheists’ cries that they don’t overlap.

    Slatternly:
    1 : untidy and dirty through habitual neglect; also : careless, disorderly
    2 : of, relating to, or characteristic of a slut or prostitute
    -Merriam Webster

    Now it can be said I learned something of value from Pat. I increased my vocabulary by 1 word. He can retire now.

    Seriously, Pat. Please. Retire now.

    To supply the entire response to “How are you going to blame the mother?” Robertson said, “It’s easy to blame the mother!”

    Nothing has done more to increase the number of atheists in this country than the blatant misogyny and racism of televangelists using the heretical pseudo-Christianity of the Southern Baptists to make themselves obscenely rich.

    Slatternly? Slatternly? Is he talking to people thirty or forty years older than himself? Still trying to impress the grown-ups of his childhood with outdated words of petty moralization? Noooobody talks that way!

    Also, I’m a little afraid for the world where a son writes to Pat about his mom not getting enough action/affection from dad.

    If it even happened.

    Wow… just wow.

    “Seriously, Pat. Please. Retire now.” Yes, please, can he? He should NOT be giving advice to ANYONE …

    Joseph Campbell pointed out that the first thing Adam did in the Garden of Eden when confronted by God over the apple eating thing was to blame Eve. Numb-nuts wasn’t man enough to own his own sin and many men today still can’t.

    In the Adam and Eve myth, anybody notice that the freak-out over realizing they were naked didn’t happen until after ADAM ate the fruit? I mean, Eve at it and was just walking around, no effect whatsoever. The lesson I took was that it takes religion is some kind of mind-poison that’s substantially more potent on men.
