http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/state/north-carolina/article134790299.html In short, the Word of Faith Fellowship is a church that's come under investigation for severe abuse, often manifesting as "blasting", where congregants literally beat the shit out of someone to expel demons. Sexual, spiritual, and emotional abuse also abound. Victims are trained from an early age to lie to authorities. Nearly all the members were encouraged to live in the same town so as to keep the community isolated. Most people interviewed for the article had been brought into the cult as children, and have been cut off from their families for leaving. In my area, too. Jeezy creezy.
So, right-wing nutjob Christianist preacher Rick Wiles has had a minor freakout over someone using Pokemon Go near his office because cyber-demons. For those of us who don't spend too much time thinking about demon-possession, he explained on his radio show that terrorists could somehow use the information harvested by the app to show them "where Christians are located geographically". And, of course, Americans could easily be tricked by these demons into doing all sorts of terrible things. http://www.rawstory.com/2016/07/end-times-pastor-warns-isis-could-use-pokemon-go-to-target-christians-with-cyber-demons/ This got me thinking that maybe we need a list of the common ways us ordinary Americans get possessed by demons, if not for us, then as a service for any demon-fearing fundies who might wander over here. I recall Pat Robertson saying that thrift-store clothing (don't recall if it was just sweaters, or all used clothing) can harbor demons. As can certain kinds of rock music, probably anything with a back beat. Demons also lurk in those bags of little candy bars that are sold for trick-or-treating, and probably in Halloween costumes as well. Anything else we need to be concerned about?
