Pat Robertson Issues Warning To Consumers
Steve Dibert, MFI-Miami
Okay, if you have ever needed more proof that televangelist Pat Robertson has gone off the deep end, well here it is.
On Monday’s installment of the 700 Club, Robertson like he does on most of his shows, responds to viewer mail that doesn’t exactly come from the most intelligent people.
One of his ardent viewers, “Carrie” wrote him a concerned letter because of something her mother told her. She writes:
“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?”
The good old Reverend then tells “Carrie” a tale he heard in the Philippines about a Thai witch and a ring by saying,
“…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.”
It sounds like Robertson lifted the story from the Lord of the Rings.
Take a look:
Now, this kind of sounds like someone is playing a gag on the elderly and borderline senile Reverend Robertson because Carrie’s mom kind of sounds like the over-the-top Christian mom from the movie “Carrie”. The good version with John Travolta and Sissy Spacek not the crappy 2002 remake.
Take a look:
I have shopped at second hand stores like the Salvation Army or Goodwill Stores before and I can tell you the only thing demonic about some of the products was the smell or the gross armpit sweat stains on the shirts and jackets. Usually you don’t need divine intervention to help you with those just some Tide and Shout Stain Remover.
