Pat Robertson: It's Okay to Enjoy Mermaids

It's been a while since I've visited Pat Robertson or "The 700 Club." Many months ago, Pat rebranded his "Bring It On" segment with "Your Questions/Honest Answers." Personally, I preferred the original heading. Then again, I'm pretty much a heathen to him so he really doesn't care.

I found this question pretty interesting in one of his "Your Questions/Honest Answers" responses pretty interesting. Both because it was asked in the first place and because he was actually pretty laid back with his honest answer. Co-Host Wendy Griffith shared this question by a girl named Britney: "Dear Pat, I'm 12 years old, and I want to know if having mermaid dolls and books are bad? I know God didn't make them, but as a Christian, is it okay for me to have them?"

Here is Pat's answer:
I see nothing wrong with a mermaid doll. You like mermaids? Good for you! I know again nothing in the Bible about mermaids. I think they're kind of half-fish and half-women, but I don't think such a creature exists. 

I've seen why people thought there were mermaids. There was some fish that kind of jumped out of the water and they sang and people would see these things and think they were female mermaids. But they really don't exist.
You can watch the entire segment here.
