John Kass has written a thoughtful article about why some pre-teen children tried to stab to death a girl (she is recovering) to impress an evil internet fictional character. The below video can be made full screen easily, click on the double arrow icon near bottom right, after it starts playing.

Yes of course. And my days of playing D&D while listening to Ozzy made me a satanist cult member...
Obama has popularized evil and wanton killing.
Droning even American citizens without due process of law
Not giving a damn for innocent civilians nearby, including their children [collateral damage].
He has invited all kinds of retribution against us and any American.
It might have made you a little weaker in the face of some kinds of temptations even if it did not “turn you into a satanist cult member.”
And even yet that does not need to remain a permanent state of affairs.
It’s the larger interplay of humanity and spirits that matters. People are embracing evil spirits and no this doesn’t always mean some outward hoodoo voodoo ceremony!
In general, evil spirits have been danced with.
It’s a terrible thing to be in the midst of battle.
What’s even worse is not knowing your there.
Our kids too often don’t know they’re there.
AT least one of those kids parents were also deeply into occultic stuff, which has a much deeper impact that a website
Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!
I doubt that many folks are calling on Cthulhu to fhtagn or to do anything else for that matter. Our problem is not even Cthulhu, it is Satan.
A lot of children’s literature and popular literature no longer distinguishes between good and evil. Not so the stories of the Brothers Grimm, which contain plenty of evil characters and deeds but make it clear that they are, in fact, evil.
This has been going on for at least 50 or 60 years. But it’s definitely getting worse, and successfully confusing the minds of those growing up in such a culture—aided and abetted by the public schools, which outlaw religion from their assigned stories, but not evil.
Ultimately there was God and the scriptures and the gospels to show goodness (and evil) in the purest forms that could be beheld by human eyes.
And this wasn’t just a nice story! This was a real live God that actually dwelt among people who invited Him.
There is a God. And how we relate to His spirit matters.
Indeed, Obama is in tight with seemingly self admitted Satanist and hyper racist JayZ.
Agree on drone killing Americans without trial, very un-American, one of the most important things to our founders.
And even to be embraced by a very large segment of those who should know better.
I know a Christian pastor who as into D&D big as a teen. I know a delightful 16 year old girl who was into Potter big. Its not 100%, but top exorcists agree Potter #1 portal today to Satanism.
That is the downside, what is the upside? Just a thought.
God can use occasions of evil to teach the difference between evil and goodness.
One can not recommend playing around with dark themed games without wanting to “ban” them. Some leeway is needed in God’s plan for people to be able to do some evil things — because through experience and getting burned or seeing the disappointments people may learn a better way to live — or the people are not free, they are slaves. To buck this is to tell God that He ought to have done His plan differently!
If make it a habit to read the lower-ranked reviews for books on Amazon. It amazes me that so many people demand _no_ expletives, no gore and no sexual description at all. They complain even if they encounter these in the sample. Some want all books to be rated for these and for violence.
I was reading Fredric Brown and other adult science fiction (quite adult) at age seven, as my father believed that if I could handle Shakespeare (I could), I could handle anything else. I had the usual Child of the Sixties experiences, which I survived. My mother thought my reading should be censored and pushed lame, childish, Pollyann-ish books at me. I read them quickly, gave her my book reports(mostly I rated them boring and unrealistic)and after awhile, she stopped.
The thing is, my father would discuss these books with me. He provided guidance unobtrusively and without lecturing. I understood the meaning of gratuitous by the time I was eight. I don’t care for slasher fiction/film or the contrived horror of the Chainsaw type, so I simply don’t read/watch them.
IMO, people today simply cannot handle reality. The mother in the article who states:”I don’t want to know.” is more of a problem than the online horror fan site. The parents who believe their little darlings aren’t experimenting exactly the same as their peers are in for a rude awakening at some point.
BTW, my Dad was a preacher’s kid who was a wild child in his teens. I am now 71 and I have found that it is those who have been sheltered and who cannot cope who become intolerant adults. They also retain the ability to become aroused by the slightest exposure to the most limited sort of sexual explication. By internalizing the idea of *evil* and being put in situations as adults that seem to them to be just that, they can tend to self-loathing if they realize they are (horrors) responding to those stimuli.
Everyone who gets their panties in a wad is free to limit their own exposure to the culture and that of their children. But I reject the attempt to limit mine or to limit the creative arts.
Classic early 20th century literature didn’t even inspire people to act like this.
So, in all honesty, it is the decay of society and the work of the evil one.
Seriously, how many people tried creating a Cthulhu cult, or summoning Yog Sothoth?
These young idiots?
A fictional CROWD SOURCED character called “slenderman” has them acting like Twilight Fanfic groupies.
It’s only a matter of time before someone tries to imitate another crowd sourced internet character “Jeff the Killer”.
...aided and abetted by the public schools....
But, more importantly, the blame lies with the parents, who are not inculcating religious teachings and the concomitant moral instruction.
Well yes, faith was stronger at the time the fantasy writings of the early 20th century became popular. People knew what was conjecture and what was holy.
Now it’s like DUH MON WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? I THINK I’LL THRILL TO KILL!
Or even more, the thing that is the capstone of all that... the personal knowledge of a God that will never go away. A religious teaching that is substantially wrong might as well be, at best, a Santa Claus tale. You can’t count on it.
Existence is intrinsically evil.
This is nothing new, and the consequence of indifference to unguided psyches.
I’d concur if you made that “This present existence.”
Existence does not need by first principle to be evil. And there are areas of existence that are not evil at all. We do not have direct access to enter them yet.
Or the latest time honored version of “we were bored.”
Yeah, people once knew the difference between fiction and reality.
Now you have dudes putting on latex masks and they honestly believe it magically makes them turn into girls, etc.
Just remember that these conflicts all rely on intel. Just keep your eyes and ears open and let people know who's who and where they are.
I just wanted to share a really neat historical book Total Resistance by H. Von Dach a little dated but not in general terms. the key is always intel. flea vs elephant.
