    Pat Robertson said that "awful-looking" women are to blame for a romance-deficient marriages.

    It all started when a 17-year-old boy wrote to Maxim magazine asking for advice on how to get his videogame-loving dad to pay more attention to his mom. Robertson decided to offer the teen some advice of his own during a recent episode of the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club."

    "It may be your mom isn't as sweet as you think she is," said the 82-year-old. "She may be kind of hard-nosed."

    Robertson then went on to to say that "awful-looking" women can be to blame for certain marital problems:

    A woman came to a preacher that I know, and she was awful looking. I mean, her hair was all torn up and she was overweight and looked terrible, clothes bad and everything. And she said, 'Oh, Reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.' And the preacher looked at her and said, 'Madam, if I was married to you I'd start to drink too.' We need to cultivate romance, darling! ... You always have to keep that spark of love alive. 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.

    Survey says.......:winner:

    Jesus, the huffpost comment section has to be the biggest collection of drooling retards on the internet.

    Every once in a while I scroll down when somebody posts a link and it just gets dumber and dumber and dumber, every time I click.

    Some bitch negged me in this thread, just goes to prove my point. Stop being bitches, if you are nice and loving and caring men don't care that you are not a young 10. But if you are a fucking mess and a bitch or even a 10 and a bitch there is only so much someone can put up with that.
