This actually sounds a lot like the cult I grew up in... .my father is still a member of one of the remaining splinters they were pretty nuts like that when I was a kid, unfortunatly the splinters have gotten more extreme. Anyone ever read into the "worldwide church of god" or Herbert W Armstrong? Pretty silly stuff, Dave C Pack is just as nuts maybe even a little more.. Trying to talk any sort of sence with any of his followers is like beating your head off a wall....

Whoa. I'll stick with the demons.

No cults for me.

I like Kool-aid... just not that kind

It does take all kinds, doesn't it? These are the kinds of stories where you really do need 'pics or it didn't happen'. I mean, honestly, my Wife could explain this one to me and I'd doubt that list without seeing it myself.

(shakes head) Just when we think we've seen it all....one new thing comes along to prove we haven't seen much yet.

It's funny but stupid to the point of madness.

I grew up in a fundamentalist household throughout my childhood. There is absolutely zero logic in such a place.

We didn't celebrate Halloween.
We were not allowed to read fantasy novels or play rpg's.
Anything "Eastern" was avoided like the plague. I remember playing Pokemon as a child until my mother read an article written by some Christian, kook. The article stated that Buddhists were trying to infiltrate Christian, American youth by using the Pokemon game as a way to mask Eastern philosophy.


I have so many anecdotes that I can use from my childhood. The article you posted may have been a spoof, but it's still spot-on.

Take this book for example: Turmoil in the Toybox, books like those were practically gospel as far as my parents were concerned. I remember that book in particular. THAT. DAMNED. BOOK.

Agreed.

Thankfully, however, another poster attached a link that shows this was part of a project called 'Ivy League Exorcist' and therfore not real in the sense that an actual religous fanatic didn't- as another poster so eloquently put it- staple this to a telephone pole.

Thankfully. thought just the fact that it was even remotely believable to begin with is unsettling to say the least.

Right in the feels man.

I feel sorry for kids that had to grow up like that.

Lemme guess the constant shoveling of religion down your young gullet has caused you to, in turn, avoid it like your folks avoided eastern philosophies?

why eastern? Such a general term... I mean... eastern could be either boston or china... I dunno...

Oh well,thats good to know-I can put "demon possessed" on my C.V. and mention it at job interviews etc.

Vegans? Really? I thought a christian god would promote healthy eating. I thought god would shun you for eating delicious cute fuzzy animals instead of a plant which apparently has no soul or whatever..

Lol, that list is just absurd, according to that list, pretty much anything will get you possessed by demonic forces.

It's no small wonder that all of my siblings have anxiety disorders from the constant stress of living in a house where we were bombarded by 'the demons are going to get us!" type thinking, constantly.

Mix that in with a healthy fear of the rapture and "what if I don't make it" and your kids will pay thousands of dollars in psychiatric care from PTSD.

I remember having nightmares about missing the rapture. When I hit puberty (around the age of 11) I began noticing girls in a whole new way, but God was that mental hell. By the time I was 13 my youth group had me convinced that if you have "dirty" thoughts about a member of the opposite sex you are committing the worst sin imaginable because "if you have lusted in your mind, you have fornicated in your heart."

So I was convinced that, because of my developing sexuality I was going to miss the rapture when Christ returned. It came to the point that I was terrified of riding in the car with my mother or stepfather. What if we were on the freeway, and Christ returned at that moment, only to take my parents and leave me? I would be stuck in the backseat of an out-of-control car careening down the freeway at 65 miles-per-hour because my parents just 'disappeared' into thin air and now there is no driver and I'm only 13.

Filling your kids with nonsense like that is nothing but abuse.

I went in the opposite direction for a short time. I joined the Church of Satan and was listening to Marilyn Manson. I thought my mother was going to literally die.

It is a mix of ignorance and fear. Go to a big church and ask about "Eastern philosophy", and then watch as their latent xenophobia comes bubbling to the surface.

So ridiculous man.

Yeah, your parents should be ashamed of themselves, in my opinion.

Seems like mental torture to me.

Well, actually another member revealed it is part of a college film called 'Ivy league Exorcist' and not actually real.

But like I said in another post, It is sad that we can read it and even think for a second that it might be.

I wonder if it would be possible to find a person without experience in any given one of these, totally 'innocent' of this collection of sins?

And yeah, I agree. Religious people are whack, the more religious they are, the more delusional they are, and filling a kid's brain up with this crap is abuse.

I keep harping on it because the rest of us can't start dealing with reality until the vast majority at the very least realize, somewhere in the back of their minds, what reality is... if you're convinced prayer will work to fix things, or there's a god somewhere up in the clouds listening to your pleadings, you're not going to have to take responsibility for either yourself, or the world as a whole.

The other weird thing I'll never understand is how quick 'Christians' are to go to war, as if their government asking them to sin supersedes the Ten Commandments. If all the religious types had simply been pacifists over the centuries, the atheists wouldn't have been able to get a good barfight going.

Yeah, OP's article may have been a joke, but Christians actually believe this stuff.

Your toybox is overflowing with evil.


That includes Pokemon.

Don't forget "Eastern Mysticism (or philosophy)"

Thanks for the vids.

I'll take a look at them.

I have to say though that I do believe that certain groups of elite do practice occult rituals and they definitely do put occult symbolism in cartoons and other media, especially Disney which uses mind controlled slaves. But the issue isn't really God vs. Satan as those are two aspects of much more ancient deities. When Christians go to church and exult their lord and savior they are actually praying to ancient little g gods. That is how the elite (or illuminati if you want to call them that0 operate. Trickery. Because their god (Christians) is the same as the others (Bloodline families) god, just different names. Tammuz, Horus, Krishna, Isis all different names for the same deities (if you can even call them that).

What I find really find funny is the generalization of heavy metal. I mean I do listen to some dark music, but a lot of the metal I listen to actually has positive lyrics/messages and really can be quite uplifting.
