TV preacher Pat Robertson this week advised a woman that she wasn't "marriage material" because her "character" made her choose abusive men.
On Thursday's edition of The 700 Club, a woman asked Robertson if God would classify her as an adulteress and send her to Hell if she got married for a third time after her first two husbands were alcoholics or refused to work.
"You've got a serious problem," Robertson told 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."
The televangelist said that the woman was probably not going to go to Hell but she was "making your 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."
