    This site teaches ppl how pokemon, magic, and other role-playing games are part of an occult and can contain demonic forces.

    i love sites like these. theyre so fun to read. just like this one time where i read that Final Fantasy was full of demonic forces with the "one winged, adn fallen angels" [​IMG]

    Yeah, but at least Rolegaming doesn't make you burn people alive for witch craft, or fly planes into buildings.

    For that you need something truly screwed in the head and dangerous.

    Religion.

    I'd rather spend an afternoon with a pagan, than any of your Christian friends.

    I once had a splendid conversation with a Wiccan.

    I can't say I've ever enjoyed talking to the "faithful".

    That article is from 9 years ago.

    Everyone knows the cool thing to bash today is violent video games.

    You know, reading that story really makes me WANT to go play Pokemon Yellow on my GBC. Man, I wish I was 10 again.

    I'd like to say "good point", but those religious types that buy into this stuff don't have any trouble using anything written no matter how old it is. Kinda explains how they let old books rule their existence.

    Thanks mastermanna123 I was up for a good laugh.

    "auras are rooted in Hindu beliefs and the ch'i is rooted in Taoism. Both have occult implications"
    http://logosresourcepages.org/Occult/magic-g.htm

    The page you link details the "problems" with instilling belief in things yet gives a nice bullet point plan to do just that.


    From another page: http://logosresourcepages.org/Occult/occult_primer.htm
    There are hundreds of varieties of occult magic: White Magick, Black Magick, Red Magic, Tantric (sex magic); Blue Magic, Neutral Magick, Liturgy Magic, Sympathetic Magic, Magic Mesmerism, Magnetism, Magical Hypnosis, Lycanthropy, and many more.

    Ugh the religious zealots of the Christian world who shovel that shit to scare the crap out of parents and just idiots in general should be cockpunched into sterility as well as any of their infected offspring to purge such stupid ideas out of the next generation of society.

    I truly HATE people like that.

    Pokemon, Magic, etc have absolutely nothing about demonic symbology or the rest of it and I really wish they'd grow the fuck up instead of trying to find more easily used scapegoats for all the real bullshit in their lives they can't wish away with a bible so easily.

    And Americans.

    I remember when I was in high school, me and my Magic (Revised edition era) playing buddies had to have a talk with another of our friend's mom about the game. We had to keep reassure her that the skeleton cards weren't really going to summon skeletons! It would have been funny if it wasn't so sad.

    It eventually sank in that it was a harmless game.

    Wow. That's fantastic. May I quote the best part?

    "Strange as it may sound to American ears, demonic possession is no longer confined to distant lands. Today, government schools from coast to coast are teaching students the skills once reserved for the tribal witchdoctor or shaman in distant lands. Children everywhere are learning the pagan formulas for invoking "angelic" or demonic spirits through multicultural education, popular books, movies, and television. It's not surprising that deadly explosions of untamed violence suddenly erupt from "normal" teens across our land."

    Pokemon = Non-American influence = Pagan = Demonic possession = School shooting.

    I think I'll go have a sex with a picnic table.
