Crazy Christians Say Pokémon Are "Oriental Demons", Minecraft's "Distracting"

Minecraft, congratulations! You've officially arrived. Religious nuts are railing against you.

For years now, Pokémon's been a favorite target of those outside the religious mainstream.

Dorothy Spaulding from Watchmen Broadcasting, a local Christian broadcast network in Georgia, discussed the perils of Poke´mon with guest Henry Lewis. Apparently, Pokémon are "Oriental demons", and the names of Pokémon are actually the names of real Oriental demons. Nothing quite says demonic like Jigglypuff.

There's also something about evolution, but who believes in that crap anyway!

On the show, Minecraft was lumped in with Pokémon, with the guest saying that it's not "cultic", but it's a distraction that keeps kids from doing things like reading their Bibles.

They don't even seem to like Guitar Hero or magic wands! Stick around to hear what happened to Henry's pecan tree.

    You shall all burrrrnn in hellllll, I'll see you all there (next to the furnace)

    People still talk about Pokemon in this way? I thought that was long over by now. :P

    That's the power of the blood of Jesus?

    That sounds more "occultish" than opening doors with fake wands....

    Great, thanks godbotherers. I now resent the fact that I'm 36 because it sounds like I should be in your dofus club...

    Can't no-body
    Do me like Jesus

    Can't no-body
    Do me like the lord

    what

    Uh huh.

    "And you go and you use that magic wand... to go through each of the rooms... oh yes!" *nods seriously*

    WTH?

    Wow... just.. wow...

    It's insane how insane some people are

    Best preacher ever!

    You never know what the faithful are gonna' say next. The voice of reason though, is unshakeably sound.

    Who knows? I can see Moses and Jesus (and maybe Judas) sitting down to a battle...

    Well Pikachu is kind of evil...

    Pikachu is demonic???

    That's one of the coolest things I've heard!

    Christian extremists...get real. It's just bloody videogames. All that you're demonstrating to me is your improper desire to twist simple logic with "religion". Seriously...Pokemon aren't even real, nor will their concept of evolution "plague" people's minds.

    Oh and why is the use of a magic wand opening doors such a big deal? Again...no logic. Oh yes you must be scared of simple logic, huh? LOGIC. HA I said it. Hopefully it would knock some sense into you. If it doesn't, then pray to God that he can give it to you through a miracle (and yes that was sarcasm in case you were defiant to accept that fact made purely from logic)

    Finally... was the use of the term "oriental" really necessary? I feel bloody insulted the moment you mention "Oriental Demons". Isn't a true christian meant to be accepting of people of all races? It seems like you have just contradicted the values of Christianity.

    I'm an aithiest, but I at least know the general idea of what a proper christian should be like

    Guitar hero is new...

    Damn Christians. I hate them all...

      Do you realize that this kind of people is a very loud and vocal niche group inside Christianity? Most Christians worth their salt don't give a damn what you do with your free time nor will judge you for it. Not to mention those that actually share your interests and perhaps you'd never know they were Christians because they are not rubbing it on your face the whole time.

      By saying that you "hate them all" you place yourself squarely into their same position of generalizing and ignorant hatred.

        This guy has a point. They're not all crazy.

    Who would have imagined that kids would rather play Pokemon and Minecraft than go to church? I know, right? Mind-boggling.

    this guy is addicted to food, clearly. i thought that was a sin?

      Yep... gluttony... one of the seven original ones.

    I wonder what would their thoughts be about a game like Dante's inferno?

    YOU'LL BE SENT STRAIGHT INTO THE NETH--I MEAN HELL!

    Crazy Christians implies that not all Christians are crazy. You try sell the that story to someone, change 'God' or 'Jesus' to anything else, and you will be put where? in a mental home.

    As a Christian, nothing annoys me more than other Christians :-P These people are such a waste of everyone's time.

    If people in general stopped wasting energy being such judgemental cornholes then maybe we'd actually get something worthwhile accomplished as a species.

    No doubt, Chansey is the most demonic of them all what with that pink and unnatural egg that undoubtedly houses the devil's offspring.

    //Sarcasm.

    I don't know whether to love or hate the day they eventually find the Megaten series.

    I put on my robe and wizards hat

    Wait... one of the witches was stabbed so they gave them hot chocolate? I don't think that's a recognised treatment for stab wounds.

      No silly, they took her into the church. That is the recognised treatment for everything. The hot chocolate was just to pass the time while they waited for the big man to do his thing

    Eevee is the most evil creature. Ever.
