Pat Robertson: Vintage-Clothing Buys Might Be Infected by Demons

Beware the Ghost of Thrift-Store Past, warns televangelist Pat Robertson. On an episode of The 700 Club on Monday, the 82-year-old advised viewers to pray over purchases from Goodwill, lest satanic forces use them as a conduit for devilish shenanigans. Responding to an email from “Carrie,” who asked if demons could attach themselves to material items, Robertson offered a story about a girl in the Philippines. “A witch who had prayed over a particular ring and asked for a spirit to come into it,” he recalled. “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.”

Long story short? Let the buyer beware…of eternal damnation. “The answer is yes,” he said, “but I don’t think every sweater you get from Goodwill has demons in it,” Robertson said. “It isn’t going hurt you any to rebuke any spirits that might attach themselves to those clothes.”

Sure gives new meaning to shopping at the “Salvation” Army!
