United States: Pat Robertson has decided that witchcraft is the greatest evil in America today and that it is bringing divine displeasure upon the USA. The comments came in the December 5th edition of the 700 Club which included an interview promoting an anti-Harry Potter video. This follows on from the September 13th show which blamed gays, feminists and civil liberties campaigners for bringing about the September 11th attacks. According to People For the American Way
In Robertson's post-interview comments, he returned to his Sept. 13 theme that God waslifting his annointing, his mantle from the United States of America.Citing Deuteronomy, Robertson made a list of reasons nations could invoke divine displeasure, puttingwitchcraftat the top of the list (we're now teaching witchcraft in the schools), followed by sodomy (we're legalizing sodomy,) bestiality, incest, andsacrifice of children(the sacrifice of children through abortion is in the 35 to 40 million range).
