Pat Robertson on Wednesday blasted “hard-nosed fundamentalists” for being “mean” and telling people they would go to Hell.

A viewer named Robin wrote to the televangelist and explained that her husband had warned that she would “go to Hell” if she didn’t read the Bible.

“You have my profound sympathy for being married to somebody like that,” Robertson replied. “You know, there are hard-nosed fundamentalists. I mean, they really are.”

“They’re just such mean people,” he continued. “And life is so stark, and God is a cruel overseer who puts you in Hell if you don’t read the Bible. I mean, that’s nonsense.”

But just last week, Robertson warned another viewer that he was going to end up in Hell for being Wiccan.

“Being a good person and helping people, when you get to the end of the road and stand in the pearly gates, God’s going to say, ‘You’re one of the nicest people I’ve ever had to send away from here,’” the TV preacher said. “Because that doesn’t cut it.”
