In a segment of "The 700 Club" related to the suicide of the daughter of a Southern Baptist leader, Pat Robertson linked teen suicide to "demonic" games like Dungeons and Dragons, as well as to anorexia and bulimia. "The pressure on [teens] is just incredible," he said.

Robertson has previously called the role-playing game "evil" and part of the "occult."
