Have you seen the Campbell soup commercial about the two brothers playing a video game. The one where their mom calls them to eat. One video game monster says to the other, "Don't worry. They'll be back. They need us." Then the monster whispers, "I hear footsteps," obviously convinced it was the kids coming to finish their game. As the mom turns off the video game, you hear "Oh no! It's the mom!"
Most find this commercial amusing, maybe enough to write "Campbell's soup" on their grocery list. Seeing nothing odd about it. After all, kids playing video games are commonplace scenes in our society.
Now consider this next scene: children, maybe your younger brothers or sisters, are playing in the school yard. They are running around, waving sticks in the air. Summoning spirits by screaming, "Spirits enter me." Across the nation, this scene too is commonplace.
Why would kids do that? Where were they taught this?
According to Berit Kjos website (http://www.crossroad.to), government schools from the Pacific to the Atlantic are teaching students pagan formulas for invoking "angelic" or "demonic" spirits through multi-cultural education, popular books, movies and television shows. But video and role-playing games, such as Poke'mon, have only attributed to the problem.
Since the release of the Poke'mon trading cards, children have been stabbed and beat up by classmates, demanding Poke'mon cards. Young adults have stolen money from their mothers' purses and others have broken into houses. All to collect the Poke'mon trading cards.
