Pat Robertson: Pray Away Demons On Inanimate Objects
You’ve got to love fear-mongering Christians–especially fear-mongering charismatic Christians: there is nothing so insignificant that the Devil or demons can’t use it to attack you. Rock music? Demons!… Yoga? Demons!… The Smurfs? Demons!… The Wrong movie? Demons!… Twilight? Demons!… The colour red? Definitely demons!!!
One misstep and the demons will have a hold of you. Order a quarter-pounder instead of a Big Mac? Sorry bud, demons are now controlling your life! Heck, in the youth group I grew up in if you listened to the wrong Christian music then demons could control you.
Just endless and ridiculous fear-mongering.
In this video Pat Robertson is asked whether someone should pray over clothes and items from second-hand stores, and bind familiar spirits that are attached to them. *sigh*
To no one’s surprise Pat says something epically stupid:
Some Youtube comments:
I work at goodwill. I can attest that only about 5% of the clothing items are possessed. those are sent to our districts exorcist department for spiritual cleansing. no need for panic.
I like how he mistook the term ‘super crazy’ for ‘super cautious’.
And for a brief synopsis of how this interview should have gone
‘I buy a lot of items at Goodwill and other second hand shops. Recently my mom told me that she was insane. Is my mother correct, is she insane?’
