On Thursday night Stephen Colbert had some fun at the expense of the “world’s most powerful religious leader." Nope, not Pope Benedict XVI (though he got some air time too) but, rather, televangelist Pat Roberston.
“In a world full of war and poverty and moral decay, Pat is always willing to confront the eternal questions,” Colbert said -- questions like, “Are the clothes I buy at Goodwill possessed by Lucifer?”
Earlier this week on “The 700 Club,” Robertson counseled a viewer worried that her frugal secondhand wardrobe might be tainted by evil spirits. (I mean, we’ve all been there, right?) In his wisdom, Robertson advised the viewer that while, yes, “demonic spirits” are capable of attaching themselves to inanimate objects, not every sweater she buys at Goodwill has demons.
