Here is a news clip I just received and thought I would share and see what you all think. As a young girl, I knew someone that had one. I never participated in using one because I heard the stories first hand of things that happened while using it. Even as a young girl, I knew that the spirit world was real and I didn't want anything to do with the evil side of it.
Maybe one of these days I'll have permission to blog about lives that were destroyed because of playing around in the occult world.
Ouija board a controversial toy for tots
Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 2/3/2010
Toys R Us is selling Ouija boards, promoting them as acceptable for children as young as eight years old. The pink edition of the Ouija board is listed for girls eight-years-old and up while the regular version is designated for all children eight and up.
Stephen Phelan, communications manager of Human Life International, checked the website and reports that the findings are disturbing. "It is just troubling that these things are treated as casually as any other game, like Monopoly or anything else on this Toys R Us site -- and I think it's something Christians should be aware of and really not support," he states.
He further believes that Christians have an obligation to fight against it. "If you go to the comments section on the Toys R Us [web]site, you'll read comments from people who talk about being obsessed with it, talk about missing school for it, talk about the spirits they spoke to on the other side and how creepy it was," Phelan describes.
The communications manager adds that the primary groups that deny the evils of the Ouija board are the ones who deny the spirit world entirely.
He goes on to say Christians have a biblical mandate. "We're supposed to deal with the truth only," he notes. "We're supposed to have nothing to do with dark spirits. We're not supposed to dabble in anything that would compromise our souls, and that's exactly what this does."
The manufacturer of the product is Hasbro.
