Televangelist Pat Robertson warned "ungodly" LGBT celebrities on Wednesday that they were on "slippery slope" that could end in suicide.

During The 700 Club's "Bring It On" segment, a viewer asked the TV preacher why God let Christians suffer while Hollywood celebrities enjoyed so much wealth.

"God's put them on a slippery slope and they're going straight to hell," Robertson assured the viewer. "The Hollywood celebrities are living this gay lifestyle, they're going to be on a slippery slope all the way down to a hideous end."

"And on the way, by the way, look at how many people commit suicide," he continued. "Some of the well-known famous people, they shoot themselves or they overdose on drugs or they have multiple marriages. And they're not happy because they don't know the Lord."
