Pat Robertson Says Demons May Have Attached Themselves to Sweaters from Goodwill Shops: VIDEO


A concerned 700 Club viewer called Pat Robertson yesterday to ask if what her mom had told her was true — that demonic spirits attach themselves to clothes and other items at Goodwill stores — and wondered what she should do about it.

Said Robertson: “Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects, the answer is yes. But I don't think every sweater you get from Goodwill has demons in it...Hey, it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”

  1. So Pat is advocating the use of witchcraft to drive out evil spirits from inanimate objects?

    As far as clothing is concerned, I think some soap and water will do just fine. I feel sorry for that girl that wrote in with that question, who has to live with such a dangerous nutcase for a mother.

  3. Replace "demons" with "bedbugs" and it makes perfect sense!

  6. Is he not dead yet? He looks like a demon with those squinty eyes and hunched posture.

  7. If the person who sent in that question is serious, someone needs to put them in a space shuttle and blast them off into orbit where we never have to hear from them again or, imaginary god forbid, let them reproduce. Seriously, this stuff makes me not want to be on this planet any more.

  8. I think it's great that PR can take time from the Great Cosmic Matters to answer a little, practical question. He's a genuinely compassionate spiritual adviser. I feel better knowing that.

  9. I suspect spirit only attach themselves to clothes if they were previously worn by blacks or Jews, reading between the lines here, right, Pat?

  12. Why do I feel like that question was submitted by someone from someplace like The Onion just to see what sort of response it would get. It's almost too ridiculous to be real.

  20. As the Rev is not one to let a business opportunity go by, will CBN be marketing some sort of Evil-Spirit-Be-Gone spray kit? For only $19.95 you too can have confidence that with a single spray any evil spirits attached to your used sweater will be cast off.

  21. I'm taking off all of my clothes right now, just to be safe. I recommend that you all do too.

  22. Ever since I was a young child (I'm now 55), I was taught the reasons why I should respect the elderly. When I hear this pathetic, vicious and obviously senile cretin, I totally find that none of those reasons apply.

  23. Damn! I thought I only had to worry about lice and bedbugs at thrift stores... now demons too?!

  25. Looks like Pat's senility is really getting much harder to hide now.
