TV preacher Pat Robertson on Thursday advised parents to “smack” children around to protect them from the “evil” music that is often found inside of iPods.
A woman named Marie wrote in to Robertson about her 11-year-old son, who she said had “recently started listening to music that speaks of the ‘beast within’ and the ‘infection in people’.”
“I worry for his soul,” the mother told Robertson. “I know the Lord is going to save him; but what can I do to help him become a nice person and the sweet little boy I miss so much?”
The televangelist advised that the boy was going into puberty and “it doesn’t hurt to smack a little 11 year old around a little bit and say, ‘You behave, you’re not going to listen to that garbage in my house. If you do I’m going to tear it up and break those records or CD or whatever, iPods, however you get that mess.'”
“I know he’s only 11, but he’s just a little twerp, and you make that little twerp behave,” Robertson continued. “There’s a lot of evil in the world. And you have got to protect kids, and you have got to do it any way you want to.”
Robertson concluded by speculating that the boy was misbehaving because Marie was a single mother.
“The little kids wouldn’t do that with me, I promise you,” he laughed. “Big Daddy’s home! Wham!”

The View co-hosts burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Borat’ denials: ‘Please make it stop!’
"The View" panelists burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani's denial that he did anything inappropriate with a young actress in the new "Borat" sequel.
President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.
Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.
"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."
WATCH: Sacha Baron Cohen used Trump-loving OAN network to infiltrate the White House
Sacha Baron Cohen managed to get the actress who plays Borat's daughter into the White House -- all with some help from the Trump-loving One America News network.
In a preview clip posted online, Cohen's Borat character claims that OAN White House correspondent Chanel Rion brought actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat's daughter in the latest movie, into the White House with her.
"They take my daughter into the White House!" Borat boasts. "No need for security checks or COVID test!"
WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments
A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.
During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.
"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
