Televagelist and host of The 700 Club Pat Robertson told viewers Monday to become Muslim so they can beat their disrespectful wives.

In response to a question sent into the program by a man who feels his wife does not respect him, Pat Robertson advised viewers “Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her.” Robertson continued by saying “I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done to make her [respect you].”

According to Right Wing Watch, the Christian Broadcasting Network edited the show to remove the clip before posting the show on their website, but not before the show aired.
