Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday castigated a woman for marrying a man who later turned out not to be a “born again” Christian.
In a letter to The 700 Club, a viewer named Patty explained that she had “married a man who presented himself as a born again believer.”
But she later found out that he was not what he seemed.
“In the 7 years we have been together he has had 4 DUIs, been convicted of receiving stolen property, and recently deceived a ministry out of $15,000,” Patty wrote. “Am I morally bound to this marriage?”
“You must have been crazy or you must have been blinded to get into [that] relationship,” Robertson told the viewer. “He — quote — presented himself [as a born again Christian]. I mean, give me a break. You got about the discernment of a slug.”
But the TV preacher also had some good news for Patty.
“Can you get out of it? I think so,” he asserted. “I think fraud in the inducement, that marriage should never have happened.”
