Leave it to televangelist Pat Robertson to answer the questions everyone’s asking. Or one crazy person, anyway.

During today’s episode of The 700 Club, a viewer asked whether babies could be demon-possessed.

The correct answer is “No.”

Robertson’s answer was… not that.

YouTube video

CALLER LISA: My question is regarding demon possession. Can babies be possessed, and if so, does the Age of Accountability come into play for salvation?

ROBERTSON: … I just believe if that child is born to a family of devil worshipers, there’s a real possibility that the Devil will think that he has a claim over that child. I mean, it’s horrible to contemplate, but I don’t think that they’re protected in some fashion from what’s, I mean, a generational curse

First of all, what the hell is going on in Lisa’s life that this question even pops up? (Lisa, get help.)

Second, WHAT?! Where are these devil-worshiping families? Why have I never met a Demon Baby? How is a Demon Baby different from regular evil babies? Who started this generational curse? HOW?!

Robertson didn’t answer any of the questions that truly mattered. But his response garnered no follow-ups from his co-host. They just went on to the next caller.
