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?
