Whether you love him or hate him, you must admit that the Reverend Pat Robertson has an uncanny affinity for making controversial statements which attract attention.  What do you think of Robertson's latest statement about divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer's disease?

Robertson essentially told viewers of "The 700 Club" television program that it is okay to divorce your spouse, if he or she has Alzheimer's disease, because the condition is a "kind of death."  In fairness, he added that you should first make sure that your sick spouse is taken care of.  But what do you think of his controversial views about divorce from a dying spouse?
