Televangelist Pat Robertson warned a single mother this week that she was “tempting God” by refusing to get married to the father of her child.
During the Tuesday edition of The 700 Club, a viewer named Mark explained in an email why he was trying to force his daughter into her third marriage.
“My daughter has been living with a man for 3 years and has a baby with him,” Mark wrote. “She has told her kids that they are married but she won’t marry him because she has had 2 husbands already.”
Robertson agreed with the father, adding that “this girl is playing games.”
“I don’t know what kind of bringing up she had, but she didn’t have a very good one,” he opined. “A couple of marriages already? She is obviously undisciplined, rebellious, she can’t hold a stable relationship. And now she won’t enter into one even though she’s got a child by this man.”
“She’s tempting God,” Robertson continued. “I mean, man. She is walking on the edge. You think [tightrope daredevil Nik] Wallenda was taking a chance? She’s really on a tightrope.”
Robertson advised praying for the woman.
“I’d warn her because she’s asking for it,” the TV preacher said. “It’s going to be really tough. It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission — that’s a big joke. Not when you’re dealing with the Lord.”
“Sooner or later, God’s going to say, ‘That’s all she wrote, baby.’ And it’s going to be tough.”

Trump may keep troops in Syria — despite campaign promise to end ‘never-ending wars’
President Donald Trump is learning why being the U.S. president isn't all rallies and fun state dinners; it's about difficult decisions.
New York Times reporters Maggie Habermann and Eric Schmitt wrote Sunday that Trump is considering leaving some troops on the ground in Syria, even though he wants to pull out and bring all troops home.
One plan proposed by the Pentagon says that a few hundred special forces would be left on the ground in Syria, while the rest would be shipped to Iraq. Trump also just sent troops to Saudi Arabia, despite a campaign promise to bring troops home.
MSNBC panel cracks up at Mick Mulvaney trying to pretend he never admitted to Trump’s quid pro quo
An MSNBC panel couldn't help but laugh at President Donald Trump's chief of staff for appearing on cable news shows Sunday to pretend he never admitted the president tried to bribe Ukraine.
Commentary Magazine editor John Podhoretz called it an "open and shut" case for emoluments.
"If it had happened and he made three cents profit, that's an impeachment, and that is not only an impeachable offense, it's a removable offense," he continued. "'No public official shall profit personally from his office.' Somebody said to him; you can't — you know, it's like, 'Stop it now!' Like, we have six months to find another place.
Trump is furious over news coverage of Mick Mulvaney’s flub — and he’s growing ‘increasingly frustrated and agitated’
President Donald Trump is watching Mick Mulvaney going down on cable news, said one political analyst on CNN Sunday. The criticism of the chief of staff came after Trump spent the weekend watching media coverage of Mulvaney's flub, the network reported.
"Trump has voraciously consumed news coverage about Mulvaney and has become more agitated," the source said according to the report. "Specifically, the President is concerned, according to the source, that Mulvaney is not transitioning enough to the role he is in now -- helping to lead the impeachment inquiry defense from the West Wing."
