Paranormal Activity makes Christian parents concerned

Paranormal Has Parents Concerned, Christian News.

Horror movies are commonly released in October, catering to moviegoers who want to psych themselves up for Halloween. But as the new wave of horror films in recent years has hit theaters, parents are wondering what happened to Casper the friendly ghost.

Because the film centers around two children, it has Christian parents concerned that films like Paranormal encourage kids to dabble in the dark side, with things like Ouija boards and séances.

Christian parents feel this trend in media may lead their kids to the occult. The real danger is that anyone (religious or not) will fail to recognize that it is FICTION. Therein lies the problem. If demons are fiction, what about God? A slippery slope.

    The conflict you describe explains the mess that is the “skeptical” blog Ghost Theory. You can watch them struggle with their biblical literalism in real-time. It’s simultaneously sad and amusing.
