Unfortunately many of you know the horror of Alzheimer’s Disease and how hard it is not only on the patient, but the family as well. Alzheimer’s disease is defined as; a common form of dementia, a term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. During an episode of the 700 Club this week, a viewer wrote in telling the host Pat Robertson, that  a friend of his has a wife with Alzheimer’s Disease. The friend told Robertson that he was seeing another woman. The friend also remarked that he felt justified because the wife he knew was gone.

According to KETK NBC news,  here is the response from 700 Club Pat Robertson:

“I know it sounds cruel…but if he’s going to do something he should divorce her and start all over again,” Robertson said.

Another source, reported this:

His co-host pressed Robertson about whether that violates the marriage vows. Robertson responded that Alzheimer’s “is a kind of death” and added, “I certainly wouldn’t put a guilt trip on you” for choosing divorce in such a scenario.

As you can imagine, this controversial comment has started an uproar. What your thoughts?

Here’s the video clip form the 700 Club showed that aired.
