Pat Robertson warns that our clothes could have demons attached to them, better to pray over them.

On the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson cautioned his audience, saying that demons can attach themselves to material goods and therefore it’s not a bad idea to rebuke them before bringing them into your home. Yes, don’t we all have a picture of ourselves wearing ‘that’ sweater.

Watch:

A viewer asked Robertson whether she should follow her mother’s recommendation to pray away demonic spirits over her secondhand sweaters.

Right Wing Watch reports, “Robertson recounted a story about “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. Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects, the answer is yes,” Robertson said.

Robertson added that people don’t have to concern themselves over whether every item they purchase is possessed by demons, but he added: “Hey, it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”

That is a serious difference. Much more at the link.

ABU DHABI -- Muslim Americans are the staunchest opponents of military attacks on civilians, compared with members of other major religious groups Gallup has studied in the United States. Seventy-eight percent of Muslim Americans say military attacks on civilians are never justified.

(snip)

In sharp contrast with Americans who identify themselves with other faith groups, Muslim Americans are more likely to say military attacks on civilians are never justified (78%) than sometimes justified (21%). Respondents from other faith groups, particularly Mormon Americans, are more likely to say military attacks are sometimes justified than never justified. The opinions of Americans who don't identify themselves with any religion are more in line with those of Muslim Americans, but they are also more divided.
