by now, most of you have probably heard of pat robertson’s latest gaffe, in which he says, to paraphrase, it’s ok to divorce your spouse if they have alzheimer’s disease and have forgotten who you are, because they’re basically dead already.

- from joni eareckson tada: marriage is a lifelong relationship, no matter the physical changes
