What was a red flag that made you stop talking to a person immediately?

So, here it goes.
I used to be friends with this girl. We were roommates at the time and was close enough to discuss each other's life.
One evening while we were chatting, something came up about divorced women. One of our mutual friends were going through a bad marriage and divorce had been finalized.
What I already knew was, this woman was a devoted Catholic who quoted words from holy book more often, a homophobic which, she openly admitted to, in the past among our friends. In fact, She took pride in that. Even though I disagreed with her extremist views, it didn't occur to me as to break our friendship over these differences until then.
This time, she exclaimed to my utter shock, “Divorcees are the worst people. Especially women. Why do they even continue to exist without a man, after breaking their sacred marriage vows? Sure they go to hell.“
I was quiet for a while. I kept thinking about what I just heard. It was still processing in my mind about what this woman just said about other women whose life she never lived.All the while, this woman had the audacity to continue making extremely insensitive and rather more vile statements as to why she hated divorced women.
I have had enough. It was my home. I asked her to move out as soon as possible. She was pretty hateful afterwards. I stood my ground. She moved out in a week and never called since.
My mother has been widowed really young, not divorced. Never remarried. Raised two daughters and did just great without a man all her life.
I didn't need such a friend to tell me otherwise.
