Watch out for the demon infested thrifts! (Status: Oh, Pat Robertson, you make me lol!)


Do you shop at thrift stores to save money? Or maybe because you think recycling clothes is good for the environment? Or maybe because you are the “most extreme manifestation of ironic living” and find sincerity unbearable? Either way, you might be getting more than you bargained for with your latest purchase. (Get it? Bargain. Like, discount shopping? OK.)
A concerned viewer wrote to Pat Robertson for advice on demons and thrift stores:
“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?”
Robertson’s answer?
 ”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. 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.”

  5. Awesome! I'd be in trouble with all the thrifted items I had in my home if demons were attaching themselves willy nilly. It would make for one crowded little town house for sure!!

  7. Oh oh! I regularly buy stuffed animals for a friend's children and put them in the freezer for a couple weeks in case they're infested with lice or bedbugs. I wonder how long I'd have to put something in the freezer for hell to freeze over?
