Oh yes, Pat Robertson is now attacking Twilight. Oh boy.
…said that Hurricane Katrina, which killed 1,836 people, was God’s punishment in response to America’s abortion policy.
…said that the 2010 Haiti earthquake, which killed tens of thousands of people, occurred because Haiti’s founders had sworn a “pact to the Devil” in order to liberate themselves from the French slave owners. That the people of Haiti were cursed and that’s why the earthquake happened.
…said that God spoke to him and revealed to him who the next president will be.
…said that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and “possibly a meteor.”
…described feminism as a “socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
…bashed Harry Potter, saying that it glorifies the occult and that it’s dangerous.
I could go on and on and ON, but I’ll get to the point, Pat’s latest ridiculous statement – that the Twilight books and films are “evil.”
“There are no vampires, the whole thing is demonic, and it may give you some kind of thrill…but it opens the door to the occult,” Robertson said.
The man then relayed his own absurd tale of a friend who exorcised a spirit from a “demon possessed” young girl. He claimed the girl had “opened the door to demonic powers” after watching one of the Twilight films.
That’s right folks, if you watch Twilight you will be possessed by a demon! I guess that explains the crazed fangirls. Har har. Seriously though… actually, I can’t be serious, not about Pat Robertson. He’s a joke, everything he says is nonsense.
I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts on crazy ol’ Pat’s view of Twilight and vampires as a whole. Let me know what you think in a comment below.
