Religious wingnut Pat Robertson stunned 700 Club viewers Tuesday when he said divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s disease was totally okay.

Robertson, chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network, said he wouldn’t “put a guilt trip” on someone for divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s, because the disease is “a kind of death.”

The remarks sparked outrage throughout medical and religious communities. (Maybe he’s been listening to too much Michele Bachmann.)
