Pat Robertson’s advice to young unmarried couple: ‘Give up the baby for adoption and go your separate ways’

In today’s episode of ‘Pat Robertson Giving Horrible Relationship Advice,” the 700 Club host took a question from a viewer named “Brittany,” who just wanted to know what would be wrong with moving in with her boyfriend, who also happens to be the father of her unborn child.

“My boyfriend and I are 5 months pregnant,” Brittany’s question read. “We want to move together, so we can share the experience and be together when the baby is born. Both of our parents frown upon this idea and say it is not biblical. I have no job, but will get one after the baby is born, and he has a very low-paying job, so we cannot afford to get married. Is it wrong to move in together even though we aren’t married?”

“I have seen unmarried Christians living together countless times,” Brittany continued. “If it is wrong, why is it wrong and what can we do?”

According to Robertson, “two wrongs don’t make a right.”

“Here’s the deal,” he continued. “If you don’t like what’s going on, you can always kinda say, ‘I’m leaving, goodbye.’ But if you get married and then you get divorced, all of a sudden it’s a totally different scenario, and you don’t have a job that’s adequate, you’re boyfriend doesn’t — so you made a mistake.”

Then came this:

“Why don’t you get some adoption agency to take the baby, and you two go your separate ways. You know, you want to move in together — ‘My boyfriend and I are pregnant’ — he’s not pregnant, you’re pregnant — you know, it’s your terminology that’s screwed up. But hey, two wrongs just don’t make a right … you’re not capable of getting into marriage, you’re not capable of raising a child, you don’t have the time or the patience — all of a sudden when the pressures of marriage and motherhood come upon you, you won’t be able to handle it. Don’t do it.”

One has to wonder what Robertson’s co-host was thinking while listening to this.
