Pat Robertson was asked by a viewer why her husband had not been healed of an illness despite fervent prayers for healing, the kind that Robertson says are very effective. His answer: It’s the husband’s fault. He lacks the necessary faith or he “enjoys his sickness.”
“There are some people, you know, they enjoy their sickness. That is terrible to say but that is their excuse not to compete, ‘well I’d love to compete but my lumbago’s got me so I can’t do it.”
Well isn’t that a convenient excuse? Can you imagine a doctor making that claim?
“Doctor, why haven’t the antibiotics cleared up my strep throat?”
“You obviously just don’t have enough faith. You enjoy having strep throat.”
