The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Pokemon Teaches Children Witchcraft by Unnamed Preacher


This is the eighty-eighth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of  sermon preached by an unknown preacher about the dangers of Pokemon.

    That sounds like Charles Stanley. I used listen to him in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

    Amazing, that church auditorium looks almost identical to any other baptist mega-church auditorium. I guess that is how God wants the churches to look.

    Yep there’s Pokemon and then there’s Russion Roulette. It’s just a game, those children say but I tell you it is DEMONS! You sit that little asshole child down and let him have it! That’s demons! boy…. they want to control you from the inside out!
    (I’d tell you more but the grocery store is opening and I’ve been out of Kool-aid all night.)
    BTW, Pokemon is child’s play compared to Teletubbies…

    this kind of preaching was rampant when i was young. you could just insert the name of any game or toy instead of pokemon and you would have an instant sermon. in the 80’s the smurfs and cabbage patch dolls where attacked weekly in our church. everything was tied to your future in heaven or hell, so glad to be off that merry-go-round.

      At my school pokemon was on the no no list along with black nail polish, any card game, and fundagelicals favorite harry potter. One of the lunch ladies even said that rowling had demons wisper into her ear to tell her to write the books. A lot of weird shit went on there, i just didnt realize how weird it was until i went to college

    I played another guy, Rick Wiles, for my son and his girlfriend, both of whom are playing “Pokeman Go”. Their response was laughter at the complete ignorance of what Wiles and this guy are saying. And it wasn’t kind laughter, but one of “OMG” he’s an idiot.

    So if these guys think people will pay them respect for these opinions, there going to deconvert more people. As the youngsters have no respect for someone ignorantly condemning something they know nothing about.
