Pat Robertson: Single Mothers Should Be Forced To Get Married Or They Will Go To Hell

Pat Robertson has attacked single mothers, warning that they’ll go to hell if they aren’t forced to get married.

During his 700 Club show, Robertson took a question from a father who has been actively trying to force his daughter to marry the father of her child, even though she has been through two divorces and doesn’t want to marry for a third time.

“My daughter has been living with a man for 3 years and has a baby with him,” viewer Mark wrote in an email. “She has told her kids that they are married but she won’t marry him because she has had 2 husbands already.”

This didn’t sit well with Robertson, who believes that all women should be forced to marry, have babies, and cook and clean. Without even having met the man’s daughter, Robertson assumed that her relationship issues are due to a bad upbringing and that she must be rebellious instead of being submissive to the man in her life.

“I don’t know what kind of bringing up she had, but she didn’t have a very good one. 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.”

Thus, Robertson clearly violated Matthew 7: 1-3, in which Jesus states:

“Judge not, lest ye be judged.”

One would think Robertson has read the entire Bible since he fancies himself a preacher, but apparently he skipped all the parts about Jesus.

Anyway, Robertson said that single mothers are asking to be sent to hell by remaining unmarried. The con artist also dared to presume what God would do to mothers who choose to stay single.

“She’s tempting God. I mean, man. She is walking on the edge. You think Wallenda was taking a chance? She’s really on a tightrope. I’d warn her because she’s asking for it. 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.”

Here’s the video via YouTube:

Single mothers have been a central focus of conservatives in their war on women. In July, a Minnesota Republican said that single mothers should be banned from eating or dancing on their wedding day. Last November, a conservative Christian leader said that single mothers should put their kids up for adoption so that they can be raised in a two-parent Christian household. And a Wisconsin Republican has referred to single motherhood as child abuse. In addition, Republicans blame single mothers for the ills of society and see them as a threat to their power. The true reason why conservatives want to force women to get married is because they believe marriage will automatically cause women to vote for Republicans instead of Democrats.

So, it’s not really about God at all. It’s about conservative Christian men trying to put every woman in America under their boot heel.

  1. Senile old bat… He makes me wish reincarnation was a real thing…I wonder how many lives in how many times in history he would have to live as a woman to understand how ridiculous he has been and how much damage he has done…

  2. I really, really dislike so called 'CHRISTIANS"'!!!! They are mean, hateful, vile human beings! No compassion, what so ever!!!! I was raised in the church but I left it just because of people like him!!!

    • Christians are not mean. They tell people what the Bible says, because Gods Holy word is valid for today and speaks the truth about peoples lifestyles, so sinners (the unsaved/non believers) hate (which is evil!) Christians for telling them exactly how it is! It is the job of every Christian, especially ministers to tell (warn) people of their sin so they can hopefully make a change, choose to repent STOP living in fornication or whatever sin they are involved with and ask Jesus into there heart. Mr Robertson spoke the truth. READ THE ARTICLE THEN READ THE BIBLE BOTH IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS.

      • The Bible is fiction and god is a myth. How about you just be a decent human being? Women don't brome single mothers on their own. Too bad the deadbeats who cut and run aren't held to the same standard as women are.

      • He did not speak the truth, he skewed the truth. Single mothers don’t become single mothers on their own. Though some may choose to remain single, the vast majority would rather be married. But the deadbeat boyfriends or husbands left them. I’m sure the next sentence out of your mouth will be they shouldn’t have had sex then, of course blaming the women all over again. People like you in our society that do not hold men accountable are a big reason this is such a problem. Men have sex with whoever they want to, even applauded for it, then leave the woman high and dry. If more men were held accountable to the same extent as women, this problem wouldn’t be such a problem, and people like you just perpetuate this old tired double standard. And in case you have forgotten it takes two to make a baby, it takes both people to be responsible. One doesn’t just get to shrug off his responsibility because he’s a man, and blame the woman for her situation. Premarital sex for men is just as much of a sin as it is for a woman. Quit bashing the women for situations they did not create alone. So sick of this. And Robertson is supposed to show how loving and merciful God is, something that seems to have escaped you also.

        Had I been Robertson, which I’m not because he is a hypocrite, I would’ve told the father to pray for his daughter and show her the love and support she needs, to be an example of the love of God. She made this choice for a reason, most likely because she had been let down in the past by these men. I would encourage her to go to church, I would show her that not all men are judgemental and condemning. She gets enough of that from self-righteous people like you.You and Robertson are the reason Christianity has such a bad name. Where is your condemnation for the men? Where is your empathy for the situation that the women did not create yet have to endure? But all you can do is judge, condemn, and past sentence. You shall atone for that one day

      • He is a douchebag, like the god he represents. You should read BOTH testaments and then come back to explain how the thug you worship is a kind and loving god. He makes Gotti and Sammy the Bull look like pussies.

  3. Dear Pat Robertson,

    Please stick your opinion where the sun doesn't shine, spin it and then sit on it.

    Signed,
    All the Single Mothers

    PS – What about the single dads out there?

  4. Isn't this idiot dead yet? He was ancient when I was a kid!! Why is he even still on TV seriously….He's nuts, he's always been nuts and I'm sure dementia is kicking in on this guy.

  5. First if all " men want single mothers to marry so they'll vote republican" of course we all know that married woman all vote republican,were in the hell do they dig up these left wing nut jobs that call themselves journalists!? WTH? You should be writing for the funny papers you'd have a fantastic career because you certainly will never make in the realm of real news!? As for single mothers causing all the ills of the country I wouldn't say that is true,but especially in minorty communities being single and having kids has caused a tremendous amount of chaos! Woman should not be rewarded for having kids out of wedlock and that's exactly what the welfare system under the democrats has done. If woman where forced to get jobs and no welfare for having 8 kids by six different baby daddies maybe they would think twice about burdening society with the next generation of prisoners and thugs? As for the men that are churning out these kids they need to be hunted down and forced to pay child support or go to jail. My opinion has nothing to do with religion just common sense and decency,we see what our lack of responsibility and morals have done to our inner cities?! Maybe they should start in Chicago!?

    • Gag. How can you admire these foul con artists? He is rich from guilting people into tithing money to keep him rich. He is the worst kind of phoney christian. Jesus would be revolted by him and his idol 45.

  6. Clueless! Who does he think single mom’s are supposed to marry? If the father of their child/children had “manned up”, stuck around to take care of their child (ren) there wouldn’t be single mothers. Or, in other cases I’d he suggesting that females that are single mom’s should stay in abusive relationships regardless of the risk to thesellvez, and their children, so as not to be a single parent.???
    WTF! This guy needs a serious reality check!
    I think everyone who opposes his views needs to comment on his media site

  7. Impotent threat, since hell doesn’t exist–it’s just religiturd bullshit, designed to control the gullible out of fear.

  8. Pat Robertson has always been a moron. Now he’s just senile as well.
    His conservative verbal vomit lowers the IQ points of anyone who has to hear it.
    It’s none of his or anyone else’s business whether a woman wants to marry or not. This goober has caused more atheism than science and education. Who would want any part of his archaic world view?
    Of course he wants women to vote against their best interests, progress and human decency. All he cares about are his tax breaks at the expense of anyobe not wealthy. He’s made his fortune making seniors contribute their grocery money. If there was a heaven no way would Pat be allowed in. He will be licking 45’s feet. Pretty much like he’s doing now.
