Fear of Demons? Pat Robertson's Got You Covered


What exactly the televangelist thinks is demonic—it's not just gays

Televangelist Pat Robertson, whose given first name is Marion, is no stranger to saying outlandish things. Just recently, in fact, he implied that gay men are possessed by demons. Extremely well-manicured, pop culture-saavy demons, certainly--but demons nonetheless.

But don't worry, guys: No need to feel singled out. There are plenty of other things that Robertson thinks are possessed by demons. For our reading pleasure, Media Matters for America compiled a list of all of them. Click over if you want the full list, but here are a few:

  • Paintings of Buddha: If this is true, then you'll have to undergo an exorcism every time you eat at a Chinese restaurant.
  • Certain martial artists:I guess the Karate Kid only won because he was eating the other competitors' souls.
  • Adopted children from other countries: Baby Lily from Modern Family is not as innocent as she seems.
  • Twilight: I'll let you guys draw your own conclusions from that.
