    Here is a post I found from a friend of mine on Facebook and this post originally came from Yahoo! Answers.

    "I'm a dedicated Christian, and judging by what I've seen on television, Pokemon is a game full of violence, slavery and abuse. Forcing creatures to fight for their own entertainment is appalling and I cannot believe it's rated for children. I can also not believe it has been going on since the 90s, causing evil to spread.
    Yesterday, my son asked what I was fearing. He asked for a Pokemon game, I was shocked, because I knew my sister let her sons play that dreadful game, and my sister is dim and does not follow in Gods footsteps.
    I told him no and immediately sent him to his room. I then phoned my pastor and he recommended steering my son away from that awful game. My son is 11 years old and he has become very cold with me ever since I said no. He called me insane, which is a reflect of what the game can do to a child.
    I will not allow any kind of things in my house that are in any way offending God. I threw away all my sons Harry Potter books and forbidden him from watching the movies.
    I am a good mother, and any parent who lets their kids play Pokemon, will grow up with a power obsessed, violent child worshiping Satan. Evolution is also in the game, which is against Gods words. it is disgraceful and should be banned.
    My son has insulted me ever since this has happened. He told me his friends play Pokemon, so I have told him he is not allowed near them again. It is causing a drift between our family. I have told my son various times that he will go to Hell if he plays Pokemon but the message is not sinking in.

    I fear Satan is taking him from me."


    Note that I'm not trying to offend anyone as I'm only posting this just because of how silly this sounds.

        Most kids these days are brats, but in this case, not only is he denied the game but he's also been banned from spending time with his friends just because they play the game. I also don't think it is a Satan-worshipping game just because of creatures evolving. After all, in this world, a boy evolves into a man and a girl evolves into a woman.

            The son may sound like a brat, but the mother sounds pretty delusional if she believes that Pokemon is all a bunch of satan-worshiping crap. A lot of us grew up with Pokemon back in the day. How many of us have turned into "power obsessed, violent people worshiping Satan." It's the same sense of bullcrap as blaming video games for making people violent.

              If you're 11 today you were born in either 2001 or 2002.

              Wow, there's fans of Pokemon today who weren't even born yet when it became popular

                  Don't lie crow. We all know you're a demon loving, baby eating satanist who kicks old ladies and walks around town wearing corpse paint

                    I'd honestly be more worried if my kid was pent up in his room reading the bible all day than playing video games. I'm not an atheist or anything, but expecting such piety from an 11 year old is pretty odd.

                      That mother is sooooooo fucked up that it isn't even believable. First off, getting THAT worked up over pokemon is insane. Second, sending your kid to his room just because he asked for the game?! SHE is the one who needs some serious counseling.

                        The OP sounds like a troll trying to get a rise out of people. Yahoo is full of them.

                          "I told him no and immediately sent him to his room"

                          Great parenting.

                          God forbid you take some responsibility instead of blaming it on an invisible satanic missigno.
