Pat Robertson Blames 'Awful-Looking' Women For Marital Problems
Pat Robertson said that "awful-looking" women are to blame for a romance-deficient marriages.
It all started when a 17-year-old boy wrote to Maxim magazine asking for advice on how to get his videogame-loving dad to pay more attention to his mom. Robertson decided to offer the teen some advice of his own during a recent episode of the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."
"It may be your mom isn't as sweet as you think she is," said the 82-year-old. "She may be kind of hard-nosed."

Whoever thought that Pat Robertson would become the hero of gay men everywhere?

Oh, no, R5. He's a cunt (as are all woman hater-obsessors). I'm just bringing the snark.

The time is coming quickly when women will have no need for men. This is going to bring and end to all males.
Wait and see.

Hey, Pat, take a look in the mirror sometime.

I actually burst out laughing when I read this.
Shouldn't Pat have expressed more concerned about the "videogame-loving" aspect of this all? I mean it might lead him to feel compelled to shoot up an elementary school. He really missed the boat with this advice.

In his defense, most of these Christian Haus Fraus are not exactly super models, nor were they ever.

Hey Pat...the men are no oil paintings. Don't blame it all on the women.

But if he ever saw a good christian woman get a makeover, he'd condemn her for the sin of vanity, and probably adultery as well!

Ah, I remember a poor straight woman I used to work with who was married with three kids. She was fairly attractive even after three kids. Her husband was slowly morphing into a whale. She basically was not attracted to him anymore. They went to their fundie minister about this and he blamed the wife! Lucky for her she developed a spine and got out of both her marriage and that church.

Conservative Christian counselors and such will usually directly or indirectly blame the woman, because wives are supposed to submit to their husbands, according to principle. Not every last denomination will push that, but most do.
And seriously...if you don't think there are often couples in which the husband looks disgusting but the wife still looks fine, then you don't know too many straight couples.

Ugly tubs of lard like him and Newt actually think that because they have a penis, God makes them desirable to any and all women.
Meanwhile, Pat and Newt look like two new recruits at the Home for Old Lesbians.

It has to do with the character of the cheater. Jesus. Think of all of the beautiful Hollywood wives who've been cheated on. At my hottest, I was cheated on by the assholes that my dumbass was stupid enough to think I could change. I finally realized that I wanted a nice guy and guess what? He's 100% faithful and always will be. Fuck Pat Robertson. I hope the next time he tries leg-press a jillion pounds that it lands on his neck.

There are just as many unappealing, unattractive men as there are women.
And many men are repulsive, repellent, and repugnant. Probably more repulsive, repellent, and repugnant men than there are women holding those traits - but it certainly is equal if not more.
Pat Robertson and men like him seem to think that there are no unappealing, unattractive men - as if their status as men automatically makes them appealing.

Who was that closeted pastor who was outed? Meth use was involved in the outing. After he was outed, another big Christian evangelist spoke out about frumpy preacher's wives being the problem.

Does anyone else confuse Pat Robertson and Robert Pattinson?
There is something funny about the fact that there is another thread on the front page right now called Robert Pattinson:Back to Looking Like a Mess. I laughed my ass off there for a while thinking it was about Pat Robertson looking like a mess while hating on the appearance of married women.

R22, I did the same thing earlier, sort of. It was stupefying to read how sexy and desirable Pat Robertson is.

R23, there are lots of unappealing, unattractive, even gross looking gay men who think they deserve an attractive, good looking man.

So in other words, Pat Robertson has a lot in common with some of the more superficial, vapid, sniping, women-hating, queens on DL.

I find it endlessly fascinating how UN-Christian these hypocrites are. I'm still amazed they have followers and "true believers".

Women on Match.com and other dating sites soon find that all of the ugliest, least attractive, even repulsive men on the sites think they deserve only attractive, good looking women, and many of those deeply unattractive men think they deserve very attractive women.
And in real life (not websites), it never ceases to amaze how unattractive men denigrate the appearances of women and dwell on every perceived physical fault of women - as the men automatically think they themselves are desireable.

You know what's a joke? Christian dating websites. And I say this as someone who respects and is friends with quite a few Christians.

R34, What are those dating sites like? They bill themselevs as better at weeding out the... weeds, but are there a lot of gay men on there or what?

Because HE is so good-looking? It never ceases to amaze me how ugly men feel so at ease trashing women's appearance. Fucking clueless.

R33, that's not exclusive to men. I've been around countless women who aren't that attractive but they'll go on and on about not just how some guy doesn't measure up, but how other women aren't attractive. These women also think they deserve a hottie even though they're not. At least one of my friends finally admitted that she realized she was just average looking at best and was glad she had met her equally average looking boyfriend who became her husband.

R35, I've never been on one. My mother met her current husband on one (they're both nuts).
It seems like they consist of basically the same saddest of online dating types, except with religious hangups. Not necessarily gay men. More like men who have another kind of HUGE catch-22 about them (wife recently left, wife recently committed suicide, just plain crazy but attached to religious rules). And, if my observations are correct, the women on them commonly have intimacy issues and/or little self-respect and are in some degree of denial. The men on there are just looking for a wife to do things for them, as well as someone for sexual access. They just choose to present this as "looking as God's match for me." And women fall for it.
But really, just look at the commercials for them. They use Christian worship music that's supposed to be about Jesus but lyrically COULD be about a man and his woman: "She falls in his arms, and the tears will roll down and she'll pray, 'I want to fall in love with you...'"
It's pretty gross.

As I scroll down, with few exceptions, almost every single post on here is a troll post. I guess the people who are so desperate to have a voice on such a cesspool that they pay the $18 to be able to post are really just the turds that float to the top because of their absolute vinegar tainted blood and garlic bulb hearts.

You hit the nail on the head R31.

R37, surely you know that this attitude is much more prevalent among unattractive men - who think just by being a man that they are are attractive.
Quit trying to say that this attitude is just as prevalent among women.
If you haven't perceived the hierarchy in U.S. society and that men are delusional about their own looks then you are not very perceptive.

This is hilarious! It's almost like Ol' Pat is turning into a Christian performance artist. I remember last year when he told some guy to divorce his Alzheimers-suffering wife and find another woman to take care of him.

BITCH PLEASE!!! BOTH the husband and wife should take care of each other! One of my best friends dumped his wife of 20 years because she got "alittle" fat. Of course, he was totally bald and had a beer gut at the time. I pointed this out to him...we havn't spoken in 5 years! It is what it is.

Hetero men almost always speak from a feeling of superiority as to position and status in the world, so when they make derisive comments about women, it never even crosses their mind that they themselves may not be good looking, may not be attractive, and may even be repellent or ugly looking.
