Televangelist Pat Robertson, who campaigned with Mitt Romney this past weekend in Virginia, advised a viewer of his show today to move to Saudi Arabia in order to be able to beat his wife.

Robertson's tone indicates he's joking — “Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her,” he said, adding that the man "can’t divorce her according to the Scripture, so I say: move to Saudi Arabia.” The response came as part of the 700 Club's "Bring it On" segment, where viewers can send in questions for Robertson to answer.

Robertson refers to the woman in question as a "rebellious child," and says, “This man’s got to stand up to her and he can’t let her get away with this stuff."

“I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.”

A spokeswoman for the Romney campaign didn't respond to a request for comment.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
