Rev. Pat Robertson is back with a glimpse into the mind of religiously unhinged. In this video, Robertson talks matter-of-factly how demons can latch on to garments. Before putting on that Satanic Sweater or Demonic Dress, a fabric exorcism might be necessary.
Robertson was asked the following question:
“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? – CARRIE”
Robertson responds by relating a story of how a witch successfully put a spell on a ring that obsessed a little girl. (He may be confusing the story with watching the Hobbit series and a certain Gollum and “his precious”). He then adds that while the clothes are probably not cursed, it could not hurt to be cautions: “Well? “The answer is yes, but I don’t think every sweater you get from Goodwill has demons in it,” says Robertson. So good—just some of the sweaters. He continues: “In a sense your mother is just being super cautious, so hey—it isn’t gonna hurt you any to rebuke any spirits that might attach themselves to those clothes.”
So, you can simply run the risk of demons in those denims or try some precautionary counter prayers before putting on those Gap jeans. As Robertson advised, it is your choice.
