Title: Yu-GI-OH cards? Kids are dabbeling with the occult!
Post by: smokemeat on January 02, 2010, 04:34:15 PM
 I made a terrible mistake back in 2004. My son who was nine years old at the time and liked to collect these funny looking cards that all the boys his age were into. My mistake was I didn't do my homework and check the cards or the television cartoon out before giving him permission to play with them and bring them into our home. Things starter happening to him and the little boy across the street who also collected the cards. My son started seeing non existing people (demons, and a man that wearas a black coat) his mother a psychology major and a minister took him to the doctor to rule out an underlying medical condition related to mental illness. The doctor said my our son was just depressed and put him on stong anti depressants. Three months into his medication theraphy, he continued to see these aparitons. Things got to the point where a letter "X" appeared in the form of a whelp on the side of his face. We thought it was an allergic reaction to his medication, but it wasn't. The little boy across the street was afarid to go into his bedroom in the mornings and at nights so he slept with his parents. The thing that got us is when my son woke me up in the middle of the night and said the man in black said something about "Legions" then I knew we were in trouble because my son at the age of nine had no recolection of the word "Legion" that was spoken by the demons of boy who was possessed where the demons asked to God for permission to go into the pigs...  Thimgs out of the ordinary started happening in our house that I had to have a minister come by and bless the house, but nothing changed until one day my son was watching the YU-GI-OH cartoon on television. The cartoon characters were saying chant and the symbols on their heads are egyption.  This is what compelled me to do some research on the topic of discussion and I learned that the symbols are similoiar to witchcraft symblos and the chants are the same. After that I threw away every card in the house and my son is not allowed to watch anything pertaining to YU-GI-OH or any crazy cartoons. Parents if your child has these cards, please get rid of them!!!  We hadn't had a problem since.

Wow. I'm not very much into believing everything is 'witchcraft' and 'demonic', but I've always had certain concerns about the underlying tones presented in several of these things they market to children. Parents usually don't look into this stuff because it seems so harmless - in other words, the primary battle has already been won. Then some, even upon suspicion, fear the risk of being label "crazy" or "loony".

My little brother just received a bunch of toys/cards for Christmas called "Bakugan"? (I think that's how you spell it). I'm gonna have to look into it.

Bakugan is similar to Yu-Gi-Oh. They are all card based games.

As wit errything, try the spirit by the spirit.

Some kids are real susceptible to that demonic stuff and  other kids, it wouldnt do a thing to. those spirits know who to mess with.

    Yugioh, Dual Masters, Bakugan, Dungons and Dragons, Pok e Mon, Black Magic, World of War Craft, Dragon Ball Z , Inuyasha, etc., all have ties to the occult or under world. How would I know, you say? I volunteer for an outreach center for troubled youth and the first thing I ask all adolescent and teenager's with anger problems that come to see me is, "Do you have any of the following cards at home?" "Have you ever played with and Ouija Board, or messed with anything that has to do with witchcraft?" "What type of music/artist do you listen too?"
     It probably wouldn't suprise you if I told you that the majority of them had participated in one activity or another...,but to add insult to injury, the Ouija Board is more popular now and played among our youth than ever before. Thanks to Parker Brothers, the company that makes board games, it sells this particular game and afronmentioned card games at Toyz R Us. And the parents can't figure out how come their child has anger issues; forever getting suspended at school for fighting and being disruptive in the class room, or why "lil June Bug", who is only twelve keeps giving his mom black eyes. IT'S BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY HAVE IN THEIR POSSESSION, DUH!
     I get so sick and tired of hearing, "S/He's going through a stage"... "No! what you need to do is tie three hickory switches together and be a parent! I guarantee if you walk that chiles back good enough, those demonic spirits will come out, and run down the street to some other kids house" 
    It's very sad how this generation of youth is exposed to too much darkness, if they're not picking it up from the television, it comes from the music they listen to. Before I looked into the playing cards, I had to fast and pray for a whole week because I didn't want my subconscious minds exposed to the simbolic messages and I had to be extra careful because what you read can easily be a door to an open portal.  Keep in mind, all the devil needs is a small crack to enter in and "BOOM" he's got cha'!

I think you both need to introduce yourselves to grammar, paragraphs, spelling and punctuation.

This is crazy because I work at Toys R Us and tonight, while cleaning up, we found dozens of Yu Gi Oh packages and tins opened and gone through. Whoever was doing it was obviously after certain cards because most of the cards were left behind. I had half a cart full of open Yu Gi Oh card packages just cleaning up a few aisles. I never seen anything like it before.

Portals...that's all one needs for the devil to walk in.

I know there was a thread about The Princess and the frog..I Loved the movie, it was cute BUT I tell you the voodoo parts were just plain ole demonic!! I went with my homegirl from church today and we were both pleading the blood of Jesus on those parts. Those spirits on there looked just like demons. Heck they were demons..I wouldn't let my child if I had one see the movie just because of those spirits...that's it. Didn't sit well in my spirit at all.

I'm not a over exaggerating, holy roller but those spirits on there could certainly possess somebody...

Ya gotta be so careful!!

Dang, why somebody always putting down Yu-Gi-Oh? >:( >:( >:(

If I knew how to play and had some cards, I would be into it more myself. For now, I just settle watching the show. It is pure entertainment for me. More about the numbers than anything.

Ummm I've seen all those and I get what yall are sayin...if you haven't seen the movie, then I wouldn't expect none of yall to understand what I mean.

I said the same thing BEFORE I saw the movie. I said well it's no different than the witches and warlocks, fairies so on and so forth, but it was actually kind of scary. Not the movie as a whole like I said in my post. It was cute...those particular parts seemed real.. The spirits were realistic and felt demonic IMO...it was weird

Again if ya didn't see it I don't and can't expect or intend for you to understand...

Doesn't Disney even have a movie about some young Hockey Playing kid that confides in a demon?

Lawd, somebody need to send Mother Rudolph over there to the Magic Kingdom.

Post by: JustBritt on January 03, 2010, 10:07:47 PM
Yeah BW that movie is very questionable. Even though Disney has other movies with magic and all that I think The Princess and The Frog topped all of them. Even how he called out the spirits to find the frog. It was just a bit too much for a kiddie movie. 
Title: Re: Yu-GI-OH cards? Kids are dabbeling with the occult!
Post by: JustBritt on January 03, 2010, 10:12:47 PM
Oh yeah and as i've said a dozen times before I use to for at Disney. One of the shows I worked for was Fantasmic those costumes are spooky. It took me a while to get use to the Beast. I pretty much didn't have a chose because thats the other show I worked for. But anyways those shows pretty much deal with magic and sorcery and witches and dragons.

Now, you post this, right after i just gave my son his pokemon paraphenalia back for the exact same reasons.  I took them away about 8 months ago but recently I convinced myself that it was not the real issue.

Yeah, Disney has always tried to pretty up darker subjects and market them to kids...

About the Ouija board thing, last year my friends son came home and said the teacher had brought one to school for the kids to play with... I was like ?/?.   The only thing that causes a fuss is if someone is trying to do something that promotes Christ.  The devilish stuff doesn't even raise an eyebrow in most schools.

The only thing i dont like about XII is there isnt enough cutscenes and all. The story is cool but gets confusin' time to time. Btw if you played KH Birth by Sleep will be out sometime next year maybe in the mid, not for sure just yet. Im glad that game is maturing along with the original players from the first title.

Anybody play Tales of Symphonia? Probably had one of the best fighting systems I have seen in an RPG.

So yes, I made an account just to comment on this. Hear me out before you go dissing what I say if you are as forgiving and understanding as you people make yourselves out to be...

Yu-Gi-Oh over in Japan was NOT for kids. Blame it on your American censoring groups. Yes it is centered around the 'occult'. But as a very open-minded Pagan, I want to voice my opinion on this since people see it fit to voice their opinions towards me about their 'beliefs'.. Here it goes: Not everything 'magic' is evil, nor is it about 'satan worship. Yes, I believe that one should stay FAR away from the realm of summoning anything that is not on THIS plane of existence, good or evil, because once you open a door it is hard to close. Now, on the matter of censoring things like the belly or the upper parts of the breasts, Big deal, not like anything dirty is even showing, unless you would rather dress everyone in turtle necks and skirts that go down to their toes... It would appear that people are very misinformed about certain things, and yu-gi-oh as a 'tool of evil targeting kids' is just plain stupid. It is not in any such way, nor is it trying to teach kids about my peoples' ways. What I say is, relax, do not take it so serious, we 'heathon barbarians (lol by the way, been called this)' are not trying to convert your kids or anything. Not everything with the slightest reference towards the 'occult' is evil or should be shunned.

@dingster1-
No, I have been told i lack a verbal filter, i saw the post and wanted to respond, whether anyone gave a **** about my view or not. Who knows, I thought I should voice my opinion on the matter and maybe it would get to atleast one or two peoples' ears and help understand.

@phbrown-
Not Trolling at all, I would have mentioned I am queer too :P. I was being genuine in my thoughts. A Pagan is allowed to branch out isnt he XP. It was not meant to offend anyone in any churches, meerly explain what the actual 'occult' principle behind it is and hopefully help people understand more (as mentioned above).

@phbrown-
   No worries, I can understand that, if you get pagans trolling on these things, trust me, they are far from pagan, we try to not go around attacking other people because of their beliefs :/. Just some claiming to know the faith really are just using it for their own benefits. I can understand completely, I have seen plenty from all 'faiths' trolling others simply because they can. I have plenty of friends who go to church, and I would never clump all worshipers of churches based on a few.

@THE WOLFMAN-
  Youtube video about Occult-based games lead me to search google that lead me here... I do that a lot, random searches. I like to learn and explore :P.

@THE WOLFMAN-
THank you, I will take a look ^^.

@SketchMan3-
Well, the solution is simple if that is your view- do not let your kids interact with it. The way I see it, when i have a kid I am going to let them 'stretch their legs' and explore what they choose for their belief, but that is just me. The way I see it, they are going to learn about 'symbolism' and 'ideology' of the occult eventually. It is explored in pretty much any format, be it certain passages in the bible that reference certain things, various programs that impliment the ideologic material without fully understanding it and such. It happens whether anyone likes it or not, because you can not be fully sheltered from things, be it my kids, your kids, what have you. I guess only thing I Can recommend is just keep them away from the game / anime if you do not want them exposed to it. They more then likely will not even understand it as an occult referencing anyway.

Sorry if I stepped on toes with my initial post- I am not the best at wording my thoughts.

<interesting dialogue, good that it is civil>

Trying to keep kids from anime is near impossible, with much of the game designs stemming from manga/anime styles.

I got into anime when I was young myself,(Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman-1970's)but back then it was hard to find, so the varying subgenres werent as easily accessible. Not to mention there was no interwebs, at least for the public.

From personal experience, one has to be mindful while delving into the realm of anime/manga if there are certain things you dont want to get into.

My ladyfriend at the time (90's) was also into anime, and we went looking for some(WHAT A JOURNEY). We found what we wanted, but also got a hold of some stuff that was shall we say, rather perverse, not knowing what it was. (the Overfiend series....WOW.<O.o>)

That led to other stuff for me where I had to say, "ok wolf, you need to chill...REALLY."

With younger people that are more media savvy than parents, its easy for the parents to have NO CLUE as to what the kids are getting into. They may have heard of "Sonic the Hedgehog" but have no idea what are things like hentai, loli, ecchi, are.
And with media content as accessible as it is, kids can be oversaturated with it.

It boils down to "what is it that you believe, and what governs your moral compass" For most of us on this site, we believe that the spirit world is very real, good and evil,  and it's influence on us is manifested through what we say, do, and for us artsy types, what we create.

We also believe that our 5 senses are 'gates' as it were, and we must be mindful of what we allow to pass through. Some things, for us that adhere to the teachings of the Bible, we gotta be on some Gandalf-type vibe talkin bout "YOOOUU CAN NAHT PAAAASSSS!!!", lol.

And that what a man feeds his spirit the most will dominate their life.

We believe that evil is always seeking a way to "get in," as it were. Whether it be overt, or by subtlety, in gradual doses. What may not work on adults, may work on kids.

I respect your decision to choose to be a pagan, as you are a free will, sentient being. A man must do what is right for them, provided it does not interfere with the free will or right of another. Wolfy's belief is that there are things in the world that I must guard myself and my house against that does not agree with the tenets of the writings in the Bible. And that may mean looking at some thing such as Yu-Gi-Oh, and determining that it is not appropriate for my child.

And I still like anime.

Preferably the Feudal Japan or Mecha stuff.
