Pat Robertson’s

Remarks on Alzheimer’s

Stir Passions


September 16, 2011

The New York Times



The televangelist Pat Robertson’s suggestion that a man whose wife was far “gone” with Alzheimer’s should divorce her if he felt a need for new companionship has provoked a storm of condemnation from other Christian leaders but a more mixed or even understanding response from some doctors and patient advocates.

On his television show, “The 700 Club,” on Tuesday, Mr. Robertson, a prominent evangelical who once ran for president, took a call from a man who asking how he should advise a friend whose wife was deep into dementia and no longer recognized him.

“His wife as he knows her is gone,” the caller said, and the friend is “bitter at God for allowing his wife to be in that condition, and now he’s started seeing another woman.”

“This is a terribly hard thing,” Mr. Robertson said, clearly struggling to think his way through a wrenching situation. “I hate Alzheimer’s. It is one of the most awful things, because here’s the loved one — this is the woman or man that you have loved for 20, 30, 40 years, and suddenly that person is gone “

“I know it sounds cruel,” he continued, “but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but to make sure she has custodial care, somebody looking after her.”

When Mr. Robertson’s co-anchor on the show wondered if that was consistent with marriage vows, Mr. Robertson noted the pledge of “’til death do us part,” but added, “This is a kind of death.”

He said the question presented an ethical dilemma beyond his ability to answer. “I certainly wouldn’t put a guilt trip on you if you decided that you had to have companionship, you’re lonely, you have to have companionship,” Mr. Robertson said.

The reaction from many evangelical leaders, who see lifelong, traditional marriage as the cornerstone of morality and society, was harsh and disbelieving.

“This is more than an embarrassment,” Russell D. Moore, dean of the School of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., wrote in a blog post on Thursday. “This is more than cruelty. This is a repudiation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

But Beth Kallmyer, senior director of constituent services at the Alzheimer’s Association in Chicago, declined to question Mr. Robertson’s remarks.

“This is a challenging, devastating and eventually fatal illness, and it affects everybody differently,” she said. “The most important thing is that families get help.”

In the association’s experience, she said, it is rare for people to get divorced because of Alzheimer’s. But Alzheimer’s can go on for years or decades, progressively worsening.

“The decisions people make are personal,” Ms. Kallmyer said.

Dr. Amanda G. Smith, medical director of the University of South Florida Health’s Alzheimer’s Institute, in Tampa, said of Mr. Robertson’s remarks: “I think he was trying to give someone the freedom to move on, but he only took account of the caregiver without taking account of the patient.”

“Even if someone doesn’t recognize a spouse as specifically their spouse, there is often a familiarity with that person and a feeling of comfort, especially if they have been married for decades,” Dr. Smith said.

At the same time, Dr. Smith said, when the disease is advanced, she sees nothing wrong with caregivers developing other relationships “that bring joy and fill a void.” By the same token, she said, “it’s O.K. if a patient in a facility finds a girlfriend to sit with at dinner every night.”

Dr. James E. Galvin, a neurologist who runs a dementia clinic at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, said it was wrong to say that people with Alzheimer’s were “gone,” or to call its late stages “a kind of death.”

“While it’s true that in terminal phases, patients may not be fully aware of what’s going on, they tend to recognize the people who are closest to them,” Dr. Galvin said.

With good care, people may live 15 to 20 years with the disease, most of that time at home, Dr. Galvin said. If they eventually move to a nursing home and seem unaware of what is going on around them, he said, then spouses face “an individualized decision” about when and how to develop new relationships, ones based on religion and ethics, not science.

Mr. Robertson helped make the Christian Coalition into a formidable political force in the 1990s and is still popular on television. But over the years, he has also stirred anger among some conservative Christians with statements considered unorthodox by one group or another, including a defense of China’s one-child population policy and assertions that dire events like the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the Haiti earthquake were punishments from God.

“Few Christians take Robertson all that seriously anymore,” wrote Mr. Moore, of the Southern Baptist seminary. “Most roll their eyes and shake their heads when he makes another outlandish comment.”

Through a spokesman, Mr. Robertson on Friday
declined to elaborate on his televised remarks.

Dith Pran,


and Survivor of the Killing Fields,

Dies at 65


MARCH 31, 2008

The New York Times


Dith Pran, a photojournalist for The New York Times

whose gruesome ordeal in the killing fields of Cambodia

was re-created in a 1984 movie that gave him an eminence

he tenaciously used to press for his people’s rights,

died on Sunday at a hospital in New Brunswick, N.J.

He was 65 and lived in Woodbridge, N.J.

The cause was pancreatic cancer, which had spread,

said his friend Sydney H. Schanberg.

Mr. Dith saw his country descend into a living hell

as he scraped and scrambled to survive

the barbarous revolutionary regime of the Khmer Rouge

from 1975 to 1979, when as many as two million Cambodians

— a third of the population — were killed, experts estimate.

Mr. Dith survived through nimbleness, guile

and sheer desperation.

His credo: Make no move unless

there was a 50-50 chance of not being killed.
