The one-time Republican presidential candidate and now religious broadcaster, Reverend Pat Roberson, has recently stated to his “700 Club” recently. His reasoning was that Alzheimer’s disease is effectively a death sentence, thus divorce is deemed ok in the eyes of the Lord. He said:
I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her.
More religious compassion galore, as long as someone else takes care of her while you can bugger off and screw someone with no mental illness. That is assuming that you don’t consider religious belief a form of mental illness or psychosis/schitzotypy.
What ever happened to “in sickness and in health, ’til death do us part.”? Christians really are the masters of hypocritical conditions and convenient interpretations.
