Pat Robertson: ‘Watching Porn or Horror Movies May Lead to Demon Attack’

Aging televangelist Pat Robertson warned viewers during his Mar. 11 700 club broadcast that watching X-rated movies could lead to demon attacks. Suggesting the movies serve as a portal for demons to enter into unsuspecting people’s lives, he told a viewer that while it was unlikely, malevolent forces may have caused the viewer’s accident just days after watching a sinister movie.

“I was watching a horror movie the other day of the recommendation of others,” the viewer wrote in to the show seeking Robertson’s advice. “It was rather strange and awfully macabre. And then this past Sunday, I got into an accident leaving church.”

The viewer then asked if the televangelist believed that the car accident could have been caused by demons summoned by the watching of the X-rated flick.

“Did watching that movie cause a curse — or the Lord’s protection to be lifted from me?” the viewer asked. “Did I grieve the Holy Spirit by watching this series?”

Robertson responded that while he did not think it was likely the crash was caused by dark forces, the viewer may have opened the door to demons by watching the movie, a phenomena he knows to have happened before.

“A few years ago I heard about a teenage girl who was demon possessed, and people began to deal with the demon and try to cast it out,” Robertson said. “And you know what the demon said? ‘I had permission.’”

He further explained that “the permission was granted when this child had gone to some double-X-rated movie, or whatever it was, and had allowed this thing to come into her.”

Robertson admitted that the idea of a demon attack may seem  ‘otherworldly,’ but insisted, “that’s the way it is.” He also warned that viewers must be wary of the movie industry and producers who may insert their dark spiritual elements into the movies, allowing demons to invade unsuspecting lives.

“Some of these producers, who knows what things are into them,” Robertson said. “But you said macabre. It’s a good word for it.”

    Pat, watching porn leads to nothing more than wasted time. Time one can’t get back. But you can’t say nothing good comes from it.
