Living With A Boyfriend Is Just Like Murdering Five People, Says Pat Robertson
Brenda, a concerned mother, wrote into the 700 Club to ask Pat Robertson for some insight on her daughter’s afterlife, and whether or not she was definitely going to hell for living with a boyfriend who had yet to finalize his divorce.
“My daughter is a Christian and a good person. She lives with her boyfriend and plans on marriage, but he has to get a divorce first. Will they go to hell for this sin?”
The answer, according to Robertson, was a resounding YES! Because it’s adultery and thus the exact same thing as being an axe murderer.
“She’s a good person, but she’s living in adultery. That’s Hollywood. ‘Oh, he’s a good person, but he just killed five people, and he threw his mother down the steps. But he’s a good person.’”
I watch a lot of murder shows and movies, and I don’t think that there has ever been an instance in which someone was like “Oh, sure. He killed people, but he’s a swell person!” Except maybe my mom, in reference to Luca Brasi from “The Godfather.”
I don’t know though. Call me crazy, but I would say that living with someone who hasn’t gotten a divorce yet is a lot less morally questionable than telling little old ladies to take out mortgages on their homes in order to give you money, which is a thing Pat Robertson did just this week.
