Following a Monday 700 Club report about how Frank Page, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee, had been devastated when his daughter committed suicide, televangelist Pat Robertson linked the issue to “demonic games” like Dungeons and Dragons.

“Our children are at risk, they’re bulimic, there’s anorexia, there’s all kind of demonic games they play,” Robertson explained. “It used to be Dungeons and Dragons, they got some new ones now. But the pressure on them is just incredible.”

“The parents need to be with their children, not just in the same room with them, not just hanging around the periphery, but really with them,” co-host Terry Meeuwsen insisted. “I’m not blaming parents in this at all. But I’m just saying, it’s very hard sometimes. You don’t even know your child’s disconnected.”

“Well, they’re using a different language,” Robertson agreed. “They got all those little code words, you know, ‘R U,’ and they’re typing these little things and they spend all their time on those little devices. And they’re not talking to each other either, they’re not talking to their parents.”

“I know I lot of adults that do that too,” Meeuwsen pointed out.

“Well, that just shows how freaky they are!” Robertson exclaimed.
