Is cheating in a man's DNA? Pat Robertson says, it's natural for men & probably wife's fault

Prominent televangelist Pat Robertson told a viewer who was struggling to forgive her cheating husband – to get over it - because men can't help but cheat and it was probably her fault anyway.

"He cheated on you, well he's a man, okay, so what you do is begin to focus on why you married him in the first place." Robertson added, "... recognize males have a tendency to wander a little bit, and what you want to do is make the home so wonderful he doesn't want to wander."

Is cheating in a man's DNA?

OutFront tonight: Political comedian Dean Obeidallah, Radio Show host and comedian Stephanie Miller and relationship expert Dr. Wendy Walsh.  She's also author of the new book, "The 30 Day Love Detox."

    Inasmuch as cheating is in a man's DNA, getting upset about cheating is in a woman's DNA too.

    Just another indication of what an irrelevant, doddering ignoramus this sad old man is.

    Pat needs to be put in a retirement home. For him to give men a pass on cheating like that, he has to be losing it.

    Self control Pat, it's about self control. Guys don't get pass any more then a woman should and if your going to give a pass to men then women should get one too. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Pat Robertson is such a vile, disgusting, offensive, and pathetic excuse for humanity that I feel the need to projectile vomit every time I see his smug face. I hate Pat Robertson and I sincerely hope he dies a horrible, painful, miserable death, and I hope it is all captured on film so that I can watch it on LiveLeak, played over and over again on loop to the sweet sounds of the Benny Hill theme as I sip wine and eat popcorn.

    I would almost consider becoming Christian just so that I can believe in Hell long enough for me to visualize what will happen to this putrid troll of a man when he finally gets around to dying.
