Conservative host Pat Robertson told a caller on his shown that she wasn’t “marriage material” because of her “character” that makes men abuse her.
On Thursday’s show of The 700 Club a female caller asked Robertson if God would consider her as an “adulteress” and send her to Hell if she got married for a third time. She said her first two husbands were both alcoholic and refused to work.
“You’ve got a serious problem,” Robertson advised the woman. “And I don’t think marriage is for you. You have picked a selection of losers. There’s something in your character that draws you to these men who are indigent or abusive. You don’t need to get married again.”
While the televangelist told her she was probably not going to go to Hell, he said the woman was “making her own hell here on Earth.”
“I don’t think you’re marriage material,” he added. “Just for now, forget marriage, work out a life for yourself, get close to the Lord.”
Pat Robertson is the worst marriage counselor one can ever go to. Earlier this year in May, a woman asked him how to deal with her husband who was cheating on her. Instead of consoling the caller, Robertson told her that a wife should be grateful if her cheating husband is providing her food, home and other necessities of life. The cheating is justified because men have a tendency to ‘wander off’ easily and therefore it all comes down to the woman, the wife.
