US televangelist says second hand clothes could have demons

New York - While many of us who buy clothes second-hand at shops like Goodwill just wonder whether it’s been laundered properly, a televangelist has gone on to claim that the clothes posses demons.

Pat Robertson brought an entirely new worry to the fore on Monday’s episode of his “700 Club” program.

Responding to an email sent in by a viewer, the elderly televangelist said that, while not all clothes have demonic spirits attached to them, it never hurts to take some precautionary measures, the Huffington Post reported.

One viewer by the name of Carrie asked him if the clothes and other items she buys at Goodwill and other secondhand shops, needs to be prayed before she wears them, as advised by her mum.

Her mom told me that she need to pray over the items, bind familiar spirits and bless the items before she brings them into the house.

Robertson answered Carrie’s question with a story about a girl who was troubled by a ring that had been prayed over by a witch.

“She had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was,” Robertson said, before claiming that demonic spirits can certainly attach themselves to objects.

Now, does this mean all second-hand clothing is a vessel of the devil? Not exactly, according to Robertson, but “it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”
