Christian televangelist Pat Robertson has infuriated many of his viewers with his comment that a person is within his/her moral right to divorce a spouse who has Alzheimer's disease. The extremely conservative pastor defended his stance by saying that Alzheimer's disease “is a kind of death.”
Have you had a conversation with your spouse…”Honey, if I am diagnosed with dementia, I would want you to…”?
Certainly Robertson's comments are a good conversation starter.
