It all happened during the show's Bring It On segment, where co-host Terry Meeuwsen shared the following question by a man named David: "I am a Christian husband who has a problem with my only daughter. She watched a horror film with her friends. Since then she has become violent, uses bad language, and throws things at me. I talked to our local pastor, and he thinks she could be demon possessed. Can a horror film make people violent and dangerous?"
Here is Pat Robertson's response:
I heard of one instance of somebody who was casting a demon out of somebody and the demon said, “But I had permission.” And the permission was that this particular person had gone to a pornographic film or a violent film or some kind of film and had become demon possessed. So, you’re asking me is that the case? Can it happen? The answer is absolutely it can happen and you need to get somebody who knows what they are doing. I’m not saying that’s the case, but an amazing thing. They see the film and the next thing you know their personality totally changes. Just a movie won’t do that, but demonic power will.David's daughter is old enough that she was able to watch a horror film with friends and without her parents' permission. That bit of information prompted me to consider some other factors that might explain a sudden change in personality for a young woman: 1. Puberty. 2. Alcohol Experimentation. 3. Drug Experimentation. 4. A Secret Boyfriend. 5. A Secret Girlfriend. But it's probably much more realistic that she has a demon nestled inside of her.
Isn't it peculiar that demons seem to infest certain breeds of Christians, but not other people?
