TV preacher Pat Robertson warned his Christian viewers this week that placing a Buddha statue in your front lawn will “bring curses upon you” and your neighbors.
On Tuesday’s edition of the 700 Club, Robertson took a question from a woman named Becky, whose neighbor’s yard was making her nervous, reports DeadState.
“My neighbor is a Christian but has a big statue of Buddha in her front garden,” Becky said. “She said it’s just a decorative piece. Isn’t it a false idol?”
Becky claimed that the neighbor’s statue may be “opening the door” to the Devil and allowing her neighbor to “get out from under the Lord’s covering.”
“Am I wrong?” Becky asked.
Robertson began by telling the woman that she shouldn’t give her neighbor suggestions about what they are allowed to display in their yard.
“But nevertheless, a statue of a false god in your garden — I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Robertson said. “Yes, it’ll bring curses upon you, alright?”
Considering that Robertson told Becky to keep her concerns to herself, that doesn’t solve the problem of the potential curses. Looks like Becky’s only option is to move.
