Televangelist Pat Robertson on Thursday told an unmarried man who was worried about "burning in hell" that he should find a wife at the dating website

"What happens when the Lord doesn't put a woman in one's life?" a viewer named Paul asked Robertson in an email on Thursday. "I'm 52 and never had an opportunity to be married. Why should I burn in hell just for thoughts when the Lord hasn't lifted a finger to help me? I think it's very cruel."

"Come off it," Robertson quipped. "Go get your own woman. Why do you think God's got to get you one? I tell you what, there are a heap of ladies around who are just yearning to find a good man to be a husband, they're all over."

"And what you need to do is to go where they are," he continued. "Just don't sit around waiting and say, oh, God, send me a spouse, I've got -- quote -- nasty thoughts and I'll burn in hell if I don't get one. I mean, please."

The TV preacher said that one solution was to go online to find a wife.

"There something called Christian Mingle that has 5 million people... So look around, and don't be blaming God."
