Quote# 89211

One of the most disturbing effects of the world's fascination with all things supernatural (except for Jesus) is the impact on our children through video games and entertainment based on the ancient influences referenced in the video:

Dungeons and Dragons
Masters of the Universe
World of Warcraft
Innumerable violence/combat games
Vampirism
Werewolves (for teens of course)
Harry Potter
Bioshock
Grand Theft Auto
Wizards/Witches
The Hunger Games
Zombies

Anybody here old enough to remember "O Mighty Isis" (Saturday morning kid's show)?

It's bad enough that electronics has transformed many of our children into obese, drooling couch potatoes. Edison and Tesla never intended video devil worship.

With all the demons, angels, satyrs, cockatrices, unicorns and dragons in the Bible; it's readily apparent that God is a D&D fan. If you want to stop children from being influenced by D&D's menagerie of supernatural creatures, start by not letting them read the Bible. If you're going to fail in a debate, place the reason your argument is invalid at the top of a list.

Aw, sweetheart, you must be slipping. You plain forgot Resident Evil.

For shame.

BTW, I do remember 'The Secrets of Isis' and as a little girl who was looking for a female role model, I thought she was just awesome. If the show was still on, I'd not only watch it, I'd let my own daughter watch it with me.

I can see why you'd have a problem with it, though; the lead character on the show and the one who channeled Isis' incredible power was a high school science teacher.

We should introduce him to the Secret World MMORPG. His head would explode.
If we are feeling particularly naughty, let's make hime begin the game as a member of the Dragons: for them the quickest way to enlightenment is a blowjob (I'm not kidding.).

Unlike fundies, we know that these games and movies are all fiction meaning NOT REAL. Nobody is worshiping any of these things and nobody thinks any of these represent anything real. And while I agree that children are becoming too sedentary for their own good, I think they should play video games, just not all day long.

Grand Theft Auto is supernatural?

wtf has the hunger games to do with the supernatural?

it is one of the few worthwhile YA bestsellers in years.

Bioshock? There is no supernatural stuff in that. It's all science. Fictionalized science, but science. In fact, religion was outlawed in Rapture, because they wanted to build a society on reason.

"Puritanism: The lingering fear that someone, somewhere might be enjoying himself."

I think that most people (~99%) know these things aren't real and just play them for fun.

Too bad rapturites don't know how to let loose and enjoy life. Perhaps if they did, they wouldn't be sitting around bemoaning how terrible the world is and waiting to fly up into the sky to meet Jesus.

What the hell does

Werewolves (for teens of course)

mean?
Are werewolves ok for children and adults?

You're part of a death cult. No wonder you don't want anyone else to have any fun.

And let's not forget Job, Chronicles, Joshua, Samuel and Kings. I know, most of the people who were killed were asking for it, but the same is true in most movies and video games, too. The ancient Jews loved a good story as much as we do today.

Always the same list! How come Firefly and Game of Thrones never make the cut?

It's just entairtainment.
People don't believe in it and know it's only fiction(except those who should go in a madhouse).

Bioshock is SF and GTA is just a sandbox game.

"Edison and Tesla never intended video devil worship."

Yeah, Edison was a deist (like our Founding Fathers). As for Tesla, his religious views are uncertain, but he did reject fundamentalist orthodoxy and fanaticism.

Religious beliefs aside, it really requires a great deal of delusion and arrogance to claim to speak for them now does it? Let alone claim that popular movies are devil worship on no basis. To sum up: You lose.

With lists like these, I wonders why fundies haven't attacked the new My Little Pony yet.

"With lists like these, I wonders why fundies haven't attacked the new My Little Pony yet."

There's a quote here from before FIM even came out that denounces the old MLP as satanic. Apparently unicorns are of the debbil. That sneaky Twilight Sparkle!

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE?!

What is this, 1986?!

It almost reads like an inarticulate criticism of violence in games and media but, considering the author is a Raptard and probably just loves The Passion of the Christ, it probably is what it is. A sad example of why we shouldn't be teaching our kids that fantasy, i.e. religious bullshit, is real. It's sad. So many people go through life in constant fear of some magical being killing them and sending them to Hell. Religion should be in the DSM-IV.

The Hunger Games? Seriously? (although, advances in technology/science, and standing up to a tyrannical government aren't exactly things that RRtards support.)

(except for Jesus)

Yeah...uh...about that...

I couldn't even make it through the first sentence without facepalming. That is sad.

Dungeons and Dragons - mostly harmless
Masters of the Universe - Meh
World of Warcraft - Addictive for some, not my problem
Innumerable violence/combat games - mostly harless
Vampirism - ridiculous, but not my problem
Werewolves (for teens of course) - Ha!
Harry Potter - entertaining, but not harmful
Bioshock - ???
Grand Theft Auto - unless you can firmly link it to auto theft, harmless
Wizards/Witches - See D&D
The Hunger Games - silly, but harmless
Zombies - really silly, but mostly harkless
Jesus - Dangerous, as many people base votes and other important decisions on what they think their imaginary friend might want.

I don't give a big rat's a** what Edison or Tesla might have desired in the future of electricity.
