Robertson: Worth Praying Over Clothes to Rebuke Demons

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson said that demons can attach themselves to material goods and therefore it’s not a bad idea to rebuke them before bringing them into your home.

After a viewer, Carrie, asked whether to follow her mom’s recommendation to pray away demonic spirits over her secondhand sweaters, Robertson recounted a story about “a witch who had prayed over a particular ring and asked for a spirit to come into it, and this Philippine girl was so attached to this ring, she had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was.”

“Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects, the answer is yes,” Robertson said.

While Robertson noted that people don’t have to worry that every item they purchase is possessed by demons, he added: “Hey, it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”

5. K& R for exposing this fraud..

Everyone knows that demons sneak into your home attached to liberals, Amway salespeople, Jehovah's Witnesses, atheists, gun control advocates, Democrats, pro-choice activists, and Mothers-in-Law. Could be their clothes, though, I guess.

6. Well, it's just common sense. Personally, I rebuke the demons right there at the counter,

after handing over the money but before picking up the item. You can't be too careful when dealing with demons...

8. When this jerk dies,

I hope he finds himself wandering in a vast plain of nothingness for eternity. Just nothing. Total sensory deprivation and awareness of it. It would be eternal justice for his neverending assault on the universe.

just like all the rest of living creatures. There won't be any surprises, since there won't be any Pat to be surprised.

12. I've had to severely chastise my pants occasionally.

When the zipper goes zombie on me and bites me in a fairly sensitive spot. I didn't know it was because they were demonically possessed. Thanks, Pat.

13. There's a proper procedure to this: 1) lay out the clothes before you (and their new owner...);

...who must stand next to you);

2) Raise your arms and pray "Dear Lord, beloved Jesus who dies for the sins of all mankind, we beseech you, we beseech you, we beseech you to cast out..."

3) turn to the person, lay your hands upon their forehead, "...the gullibility from your faithful."

(of course, if that works too well,...)

I hang them up in the closet, don't wear them for a few months, then put them on and OMG, they've shrunk! It has to be demons, no other explanation.

31. Why only the second-hand clothes?

Surely, any number of evil spells might be put in your clothes in the factory or the fabric mill or the cotton field or the chemical plant ...


... and what about other consumer goods?

... and what about your house itself, and every single thing it's made of?


One cursed iron mine could damn all your followers, Pat!
