Pat Robertson tells woman to forgive husband's drunken gay affair since he was drunk and not 'habitual homosexual''

A woman whose husband of 11 years confessed to cheating in her with a male member of their church isn't sure if she should forgive him or not.

So, she wrote in to 84-year-old Pat Robertson who is one of the most outspoken anti-gay preachers in the US.

But Robertson, speaking on his The 700 Club television program on Monday (27 April) told the woman that 'of course' she should forgive her husband and stay in the marriage.

Here's why: 'He didn't know what he was dealing with (being drunk). If he were this way all the time, if he's a habitual drunk, a habitual homosexual, a habitual philanderer by all mans take a hike.

'But one time? Eleven years. Don't throw all that away.'
