No stranger to controversy, Pat Robertson is causing a stir yet again—this time, saying that women are to blame when their men cheat.

The televangelist was answering a viewer’s question on an episode of “The 700 Club” on Wednesday, who was asking for advice on her cheating husband.

“Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you. Well, he’s a man. O.K.,” Robertson said. He also added that the woman should provide a better home for the man, in order to save the marriage.

Robertson suggested the wife try to fall in love with her husband again.

“Males have a tendency to wander a little bit, and what you want to do it make the home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander,” Robertson said at the end of his comments to the viewer.

The Christian Broadcasting Network released a statement, saying, ““His point was that everyone is human and there is much temptation outside of the home, so she should do whatever she can to strengthen their home and relationship. His intent was not to condone infidelity or to cast blame. We regret any misunderstanding,” according to ABC News.
