Ignorance About Muslims On Live TV

  • Michael - in a letter to religious zealot Pat Robertson: My wife has become a real problem. SHe has no respect for me as the head of the house. She insults me and she even went as far as stretching her hand to beat me. I've lost my self confidence. Her words hurt so much and she refuses to talk through our problems. Please tell me what I can do.
  • Pat Robertson in response: Well you could become a Muslim and beat her.
  • Female co-host: (laughs) But in lieu of that...
  • Pat Robertson: (laughing) You don't want to go to Saudi Arabia? This man has to stand up to her. He can't let her get away with this stuff. I don't think we condone wife beating these days, but he can't divorce her according to the scripture, so I say move to Saudi Arabia.
