In action to a viewer?s question on The 700 Club, the televangelist stated it was OK to divorce a spouse who is experiencing Alzheimerapos; s illness. Robertson then added,?”But make certain she has custodial care and someone caring for her.”?
When Robertson?s co-host Terry Meeuwsen asked if marital relationship vows like?”in sickness and in health?” should use, Robertson went on to discuss that Alzheimerapos; s is a?”type of death.?
After the uncomfortable exchange, the evangelist conceded that possibly an ethicist should make the call in these situations.
