I don’t pay any attention to televangelists and can’t tell you what any of them have to say. However, I just read an article about one of the popular ones and what he had to say floored me.
“Responding to a question from a viewer, he said that married men ‘have a tendency to wander’ and it is the spurned wife’s job to focus on the positive and make sure the home is so enticing, he doesn’t want to stray.
“Recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit. What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander or give in to the “salacious” magazine pictures and Internet filled with porn.”
Here are some of the things he told viewers:
“Awful-looking” women can cause marriages to lose their spark.
“It just isn’t something to just lie there, ‘Well, I’m married to him so he’s got to take me slatternly looking,’ You’ve got to fix yourself up, look pretty.”
And in response to a woman complaining about her husband’s flirtatious ways: “Don’t hassle him about it. Just make yourself as attractive as possible.”
Ladies . . . Pay no attention to the garbage this man is spouting. You are not responsible for your husband’s inability to keep his zipper closed. You are not responsible for his moral weakness. You are not a Barbie doll or a sex toy. This is the year 2013, not biblical times when women were stoned for numerous infractions.
I notice he had no wonderful words of wisdom for the men whose wives commit adultery. He didn’t tell them that they probably have beer bellies and no longer look attractive to their wives.
He didn’t tell them that maybe they lack the spark they used to have and if they stopped grunting and made interesting conversation, their wives might still be interested in them.
I noticed he spoke to the woman about just lying there, looking slatternly and telling her that she has to fix herself up, look pretty, but he didn’t tell the man that he has to be more imaginative in the bedroom and to go on a diet and lose the paunch that he didn’t have when he married his wife.
I think this guy was born a couple of thousand years too late. He sounds like a throwback to biblical times, and not in a good way.
