“700 Club” co-host Pat Robertson offered up some advice for a viewer who asked him about her two divorces and whether she would “go to hell” if she marries again, telling her that she has picked “a selection of losers” and that marriage probably isn’t for her.
“What is God’s view on divorce? All of my marriages failed,” the woman, Melody, said in a question submitted to the show. “I tried really hard to make them work, but the last husband wouldn’t work or pay the bills, and the one before him was an alcoholic.”
She continued, “Will I go to hell if I marry again? Will I be classified as an adulteress?”
Robertson said Melody should “forget marriage” for now and just focus on herself.
“You’ve got a serious problem and I don’t think marriage is for you,” he said. “You have picked a selection of losers. There is something in your character that draws you to these men who are indigent or abusive.”
Robertson said that she isn’t going to hell, but that she’s making her own hell on earth.
“You don’t need to get married again,” he added, later saying, “I don’t think you’re marriage material.”
