Pat Robertson Claims Dungeons and Dragons has 'Destroyed People's Lives'

By Michael Allen, Thu, April 18, 2013

On the 700 Club today, a letter from a viewer named "John" asked Pat Robertson: "Is it safe for a Christian to enjoy video games that have magic in them, if the person playing the games is not practicing the magic?"

"I don't know what game you're talking about, but there's one called Dungeons and Dragons that has literally destroyed people's lives," said Robertson, reports RightWingWatch.org.

"If it's based on the occult and magic, then stay away from it. There are other games you can play... I just think we should flee from evil."

In 2007, Robertson warned viewers that some martial artists who practice karate were "inhaling some demon spirits" before they started and their "enormous strength doesn't come from a human source, but a demonic source" (video below).

I remember back in the 80s there was an afterschool special where a player lost his mind.

While I don't necessarily agree with him about his idea of why it destroy lives. There are those out there that take this game and other games very seriously they are no different than any other addict and can destroy their lives.

 I can understand how anything- religion included , can become an obsession and ruin lives but just because something has *gasp* magic in it, doesn't mean it's automatically going to ruin lives. lol.

Sooooooo .... magic like, say, water changing into wine?  Like a single fish and loaf serving a mob?  Like a sea being parted to let a people escape tyranny?  Like  virgin being impregnanted by a god...  only to later be taken bodily to heaven?  Like a dead man getting up, rolling a massive stone from his grave and walking around with crucifiction wounds? 

Yeah, magic bad ... unless it is Christian magic.  Of course.

I keep pointing my Elder Wand replica at Pat Robertson and yelling "Avada Kedavra", but it doesn't seem to be working. Apparently the wand doesn't recognize me as it's true owner. :-(

Time to plan a trip back to Ollivanders at the WWOHP.
