Crazy Pat: other religions worship 'demonic powers'


Graphic: Mike Tidmus

A reader wrote in to Pat Robertson to ask a simple question: whether evangelicals believe their way is the only way to heaven; since those who are Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim have a relationship with God.

Pat’s response:

No. They don’t have a relationship. There is the god of the Bible, who is Jehovah. When you see L-O-R-D in caps, that is the name. It’s not Allah, it’s not Brahma, it’s not Shiva, it’s not Vishnu, it’s not Buddha. It is Jehovah God. They don’t have a relationship with him. He is the God of all Gods. These others are mostly demonic powers. Sure they’re demons. There are many demons in the world.

People for the American Way’s blog, Right Wing Watch, has the video.

Even the White House caught on that Crazy Pat is unhinged. David Kuo, author of Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction, and former number two at the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives, said that administration officials referred to “Pat Robertson as ‘insane,’ Jerry Falwell as ‘ridiculous,’ and that James Dobson ‘had to be controlled.'”
