EVIL! Pure evil! Your child will become demon possessed almost instantly by playing this fun kid's game!

No really....some churches think everything is evil. I had an assistant pastor who wouldn't buy Lucky Charms cereal for his kids because it was "magically delicious".....not joking.

Evil. Have nothing to do with this. It does not honor God.

Better get rid of your computer too. They do not honor god either. I can't even go to my e mail or MSN homepage without a raunchy Victoria's Secret ad being displayed. Or would god enjoy that?

It just amazes me how people will go to the point of denying their children play time, because it doesn't honor god. Do you think robbing your kids of their childhood will honor god? There is a reason why monasteries don't accept children. Let kids be kids.

I don't think anyone is advocating denying their children "play time." What we are called to do as Christian parents is guard their innocence and protect them from potential dangerous and spiritual dangers as well.

In the name of allowing children "play time" would you allow them to hold a sťance, play with Ouija board, eat poison, or leave them to rape another child? No obviously not!

Who is the gate keepers if itís not us? Because if we donít something or someone else will.

You forgot Trick or Treating, Harry Potter books and the Magic 8 Ball. If I had gate keepers, who looked for the evil in everything around me, I'd opt for eating poison. You're going to have an insecure child who is afraid of his own shadow.

Please tell me this is a joke thread! The fear mongering is getting out of hand.

BTW my friends and I played with a Ouija board, nothing. Kind of boring. Seriously people, it is a game, nothing more.

You have that one right. I grew up with one, his parents kept him away from everything for fear of evil. The kid was a scared kid all growing up and trusted nothing. It was really sad. My mom exposed me to tons of stuff, I laugh during scary movies and games. It is all in the mind.

It seems fear is an important element for some to be able to influence the target audience.
