Pat Robertson: Goodwill Sweaters Could Have Demons, No Harm In Praying Over Them

Usually when one buys clothes second-hand at shops like Goodwill, one just wonders whether it's been laundered properly. But Pat Robertson brought an entirely new worry to the fore on Monday's episode of his "700 Club" program. Responding to an email sent in by a viewer, the elderly televangelist said that, while not all clothes have demonic spirits attached to them, it never hurts to take some precautionary measures.

Robertson was answering a question from viewer Carrie, who wrote:

I buy a lot of clothes and other items at Goodwill and other secondhand shops. Recently my mom told me that I need to pray over the items, bind familiar spirits and bless the items before I bring them into the house. Is my mother correct? Can demons attach themselves to material items?
Robertson answered Carrie's question with a story about a girl who was troubled by a ring that had been prayed over by a witch. "She had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was," Robertson said, before claiming that demonic spirits can certainly attach themselves to objects.

I offer this as a Public Service Announcement. If you're going to buy second-hand clothes at Goodwill, make sure your washing machine has an exorcism cycle or use a detergent that will get rid of those pesky evil spirits!!

3. How is this in any way, the opinion of a sane person?

 

Just wash the item in question in the washing machine and be done with it. Drown the demons.
Either that, or become a Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Wiccan, atheist, or anything other than a fundy christian.

Is there anything more pathetic than scared Christians? Demons? Witches? Really? Can we be devolving?

10. I'm just glad to see Pat has offered some advice that doesn't involve sending him a check.

At least his ridiculous suggestion is free.

11. Pat, some so-called "christians" who blame every percieved ill and catastrophe in America on Gays,

liberals and non-christians could be posessed by demons, right?

I pray for you every day. Apparently God isn't listening 'cause you're still preaching hatred, distrust while laughing at the less fortunate for their misfortune.

Get out demon!

12. Naw, just call the Haunted Collector.

He'll come and steal your stuff -- I mean, "remove" the item so that you are safe from demons and ghosts.

15. My favorite part...

"She had to buy it"

Seriously? Why did she have to buy it?

One of those things that makes you go HMMMMMMM.

Thanks for the morning chuckle, Pat!
