Pat Robertson: Second Hand Clothes Could Have DEMONS

&feature=player_embedded



http://aattp.org/pat-robertson-second-hand-clothes-could-have-demons-in-them-video/

Have you ever bought clothes from a second hand store and immediately felt the presence of Satan? Did the sweater you bought from Goodwill cause your head to rotate 360 degerees and enable you to speak in a language you did not understand? Have you been levitating in your bed, or causing people to jump out of windows?

66. Agreed...

I started to learn long ago that, higher education fails to precipitate virtues of common sense, or higher levels of problem solving skills that don't already exist.

This is apparent amongst way to many highly educated, highly paid, highly respected venal yes men and woman, of mediocre intelligence, who are given authority, both in business and government.

The downfall of large societies begins when opportunity is dependent on social adjustments according to wealth, and not abilities. So if your "not born into a minority of wealthy families", your success becomes dependent on not what you know but who you blow.

Eventually, people with common sense and higher levels of problem solving skills, who were not born into a family fortune, become a big threat to those who basically inherited their wealth, and authority in life. So the true problem solvers of the World must be marginalized, demoted, and eliminated in order to protect the highly educated, highly paid, highly respected fools that received their positions, and educations though upward social adjustments.

People like Gorge W. Bush, and Pat Robertson are harbingers of what social adjustments according to wealth will do to American society, and the World.

It probably didn't take Walmart long to figure out that it's onetime customers who can no longer afford Walmart must be shopping at Goodwill. Who would be best to consult about this dilemma? Why the preacher to the impoverished of course. Don't tell me that Robertson's piping up about secondhand demons isn't related to Walmart's crashing profits.

18. This is why you have to wash your clothes from the thrift stores before you wear them.

The demons come out in the wash and go down the sewer. I thought everyone knew that.

And that is why they put bleach in our drinking water people wake up! Demons cannot live in the presence of bleach, (which is the secret ingredient in Holy Water)

Geeze, I have to teach you people everything.

63. ... or that he drove out demons (As told in Matthew 8:31)

 

New International Bible Version (1984)
The demons begged Jesus, "If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs."

This just not have the punch of God's True Text (KJV)
So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

Either way, if you believe in Christ, then, by your own Holy Book of God's Revealed Word, you must also believe in demons - and who is to say they cannot live in Salvation Army clothes as easily as in swine.

Oh, and have always wondered, since what happened next was "...when they {the demons} were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters." like what did the people whose pigs these were feel about this?



Respecter of other peoples pigs, our Lord Jesus was not.

Now if you could just find someone to exorcise the DEMONS IN YOUR MIND (forget 'heart', you don't have one to worry about), maybe you could win your own way to heaven after all. Say, I know plenty of capable Catholic priests who could help you; yes, indeed. My spiritual advisers specialize in such matters, and you're a prime candidate!

50. In closing....

I thought people might enjoy hearing about a little show I once put on for the crowd at a condo I rented a few months. One woman there 'got religion' all of a sudden and started banging on people's doors to preach the gospel to them. Everybody told her to go away and shut up, some even threatened to call the cops.

Then I thought of something that would be even more fun. One day when she started her spiel in the courtyard, I went after her, clothed in nothing but my unmentionables and a halloween feather mask, with all sorts of celestial cymbals painted on my skin and every small kitchen implement I could find fastened to my wrists and elbows for noisemakers.

When I ran down the stairs screaming gibberish incantations at the top of my lungs, she stopped dead cold. I danced around her in my best Gaelic Goddess manner, making sure to punctuate the gibberish with clear English words about exorcising demons. I even punctuated it with a little Shakespeare I knew she wouldn't recognize.

When I thought the cure had taken, I pointed toward her apartment and added jumping up and down to my incantations. She finally found her legs and ran away. Then I took my bows to the applause of the crowd and disappeared stage left.

You can get away with that in Los Angeles. I don't know about New York, though I lived there too. Where I retired in the MidWest for financial reasons alone, I'd probably get arrested.

91. So enjoy!

While I'm not exactly a pantheist, I come a little too close to it to suit most of the Roman Catholic church; and I'm extra fond of the Unitarian Universalists. They're a good group for people who can't abide some of the strife inherent in other denominations. I can say that I never met a nicer (or more intelligent) bunch of people than Unitarians. They'd certainly be more accepting of my Native American animist leanings, and if there were such a congregation anywhere around here, that's probably where I'd go. But there isn't so I can't.

In fact, this tiny flyspeck town - which does have an appropriately sized Catholic mission - is so ultraconservative that I wouldn't stay except it's the only place I could afford a really nice house to restore. Now I've got 7+ years invested here, and if my financial situation changed overnight I'd probably hang on anyway. Miraculously enough, I've actually made a few real friends here, and I couldn't abide the thought of making the others happy by leaving.

See, that's one thing I didn't expect in a small town because I'd never lived in one before. As a military brat and later wife, I roamed the world and learned to revel in its diversity. Apparently around here that's some kind of crime. Also outbidding a local for the house and then hanging on okay over 3 years before my SS kicked in made me suspect in more ways than I care to count. I knew there would need to be a mutual adjustment, some culture shock and all; but I vastly underestimated the viciousness I'd encounter and I equally overestimated my lifelong ability to survive and thrive anywhere I chose to settle.

The UPSIDE to all that has been a deeper appreciation of the nice people I do know. I think it's beyond me now to take any of them for granted, whereas while on the move I was less inclined to let anyone embed themselves in my heart. So it all turns out for the good, one way or another if you let it. The Irish are well known for being gregarious and convivial - but that only goes so far. Dig really deep into most of us and you'll run into a brick wall very few ever penetrate.

Please forgive my running on. This little town came perilously close to proving my Waterloo, so I give it a lot of thought. And all too often I tend to think aloud on paper, electronic or otherwise. Helps me see and think more clearly. I also tend to hope that some other wanderer in search of peace and quiet for the soul will learn not to look toward Mayberry for it, because he's very likely to wake up and find himself in Peyton Place instead.

52. Not a fan of Pat Robertson but all he said was it wouldn't hurt to pray over the clothes.

I watched Friday the 13th the series people were buying cursed objects all the time at thrift stores. anything is possible. I buy everything secondhand. Maybe my Couch needs some prayer cause every time I lay down I get this over whelming erge to pass out for hours. I always thought it was because the couch was so comfy but maybe the Older lady I bought it from wasn't a sweet grandmother baking cookies, maybe she was an evil witch cursing all her Craigslist items she was selling.

I am so screwed. Damn I am sitting on the couch now the Demon is making me fall asleep before I can pr....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

76. That's rich!

A little salty for my generation, perhaps, but still funny as hell. I agree. Sometimes I also wonder if I wasn't born a few years too soon. You guys have fun.

We have a public clothes closet where I retired, and everything's only 10 cents! And I don't mind if the original owner of the clothes dropped dead in them or if some rich lady recognizes her sweater on me. My annual clothes budget for outerwear (I only buy new scanties) probably runs less than $5, so I have plenty left over for more important things in life like books and music and feeding my dog.

Hey, can I have that fur coat when you're through with it?

86. LOL, yes, I should have warned about the language.

That public clothers closet sounds like a great idea. Every retirement community should set up something like that. Goodwill is cheap, but it's not 10 cents an item. It's more like $1 to $3 per item here in the Los Angeles area.

77. Be careful

Those holes might be evidence of demons trying to escape. Or get in. I never could straighten out which. Just listen to ol' Pat and do exactly as he says about everything; then you'll be safe.

He's dead because he destroyed his soul; he just hasn't fallen over yet. When that happens, I expect hell to explode.

80. Plenty of that to go around

Did you know he convinced his followers to finance a tv station for 'the lord's work', then turned around and sold it and pocketed the money? But those same people keep sending him more money, convinced they can buy themselves a cushy spot in the afterlife. It has nothing to do with worshipping Jesus and everything to do with their future status. They're in for a rude awakening some day.
