WND: The Media Is Driving “Demonic Activity”

From World Net Daily:

Huge spikes in reported demonic activity all over the world. Black masses and blasphemous rituals held in cities around the country. The rise of Satanism as devil worshipers openly organize in what was once a Christian country. Suddenly, Halloween doesn’t seem so innocent anymore. Karl Payne, the former chaplain of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and a pastor at Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington, has been engaged in the spiritual fight against demons for many years. Calling demons real, powerful and dangerous, he chronicled his fight against them in his book “Spiritual Warfare.” And he argues the media is encouraging a troubling trend with its sensational and borderline celebratory treatment of a serious issue.

“I believe there is a correlation between the media’s incessant and increasing promotion of these kinds of subjects and an increased workload for those of us who actually work with real demonization and deliverance,” the pastor told WND. “Why should that come as a surprise? The same media industry that restricts the promotion of tobacco products because of the destructive and addictive effects promoted by advertisements on naïve, gullible young minds chooses to bombard those same naïve, gullible young minds with other harmful imagery. Audio and visual presentations of demonic, occultic and Satanic inspired death, destruction, slashing, bashing, blood, gore, murder, rape, terror and mayhem on a nightly basis. And yet they defiantly declare it represents nothing more than harmless entertainment.

Payne cautioned that not only are demons real, but exposure is usually inadvertent. Christians, he said, should be on their guard. “Most of the people I have worked with over the years did not get involved with demons on purpose,” he told WND. “They opened doors to demonic control through many activities culture would identify as natural or a curiosity. Unfortunately, demons approach their jobs with deadly earnest, while most people, including Christians, think it is a game to be played. If two fighters get into a ring, with one thinking it is a photo shoot, and the other fighting for his life, I can tell you who is going to win that particular fight.”

      OT thing about spirits. There’s a bar called the Haggis in SLC. When they first opened they had beautiful windows with stenciled glass ads that said, “Food, Spirits, Sports.” But it’s illegal to advertise alcohol in Utah. The Utah Alcohol Beverage Control board immediately threatened to close them down and levy a BIG fine. To avoid being closed down they changed the stencils to read, “Food, Ghosts, Sports.” The UAlBC board was not pleased. But there was fuck little they could do about it. 🙂

    • glass

      The reason many people choose xianity is because they don’t want to feel insignificant. They want to feel superior. On some level they actually know that out of 7 billion people, very few will do anything that changes the world in a good way. The rest of us just live our lives. They just cannot accept that and really need the god drug to “pump” them up and make them feel good. It’s no different than any other addiction.

      Neal has already told us what he wants. He wants to feel important, have lots of sex with sexy people, and do some good drugs so he no longer feels empty inside. Instead of dealing with that, he chose jesus. And we all know that jesus does not want any living creature to be happy. Jesus also likes it when you are dishonest and spread hate.
      Religion teaches people that they are broken and they need to be fixed. And they can only be fixed temporarily, you will always need jesus to make you acceptable, at least for now.

      Real people, not in a death cult, make mistakes, they figure it out and fuckin’ move on. Being an ignorant fuck is not a badge of honor. Treating others like human beings IS a badge of honor.

      Really good movie, based on the short story “Casting The Runes” by M.R. James. The demon is a little hokey looking, but the producers made them put it in instead of keeping it hidden and just suggesting it.

      • barrixines

        It’s great. I don’t mind the demon – sure it’s a little rubbery but the build up to it is pretty suspenseful and there’s quite a few unsettling moments along the way. And of course, dialogue from the film is quoted in the equally great “Hounds of Love” by Kate Bush.

    Speaking of demonic activity. How about those Rethug sleezebags and Comey?

    [Rep. Elijah] Cummings’ shocker: Americans don’t ‘have a clue’ how hard the GOP pushed the FBI to attack Clinton

    “I was surprised that the director who has told our committee on several occasions that his number one concern is his reputation that he would issue a letter that, number one, was so vague,” Cummings began. “And that, basically, gave Donald Trump a softball to hit over the fence. And he knew, I’m sure, that this is exactly what Donald Trump would do. He would exaggerate.”

    Cummings went on to call the letter vague again, saying that it leaves so many facts out of the equation. But given the pressure Comey was under from the GOP, he’s not shocked it happened. “We don’t know how many of these e-mails are duplicates. And we don’t have very much information at all. But the fact still remains that — it doesn’t surprise me, though, in a way that he did this. Because I don’t think the American people have a clue as to how hard the Republicans, particularly on my committee, have been on the FBI.”

    • Clive Johnson

      In essence the GOP was fine with corrupting our legal system for political gain. Alas, nothing’s new with these political extremists.

  • Uncle Mark

    How cute how these “Christian” ministers are so quick to blame the media for “turning people to Satan,” yet how many of these “guardians of ethics & morality” have just endorsed the biggest, unrepentant, lying, thieving, greedy, groping, serial-whoring, prideful, orange hedonist to lead this country and have called him their hero, their leader, and God’s chosen. To add to the irony, isn’t there something in their little tome (that, like the media, is also filled with murder, rape, etc) that speaks of an evil that dupes & corrupts the religious, but is supposed to be the anti-Christ that leads them all astray? I guess these folks are more about projection than reflection.

      THIS is the maddening part from the Post article I’ve provided a link to above:

      FBI agents have now obtained a warrant to examine the new emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, and it now appears possible that the FBI will share more information about the new significance of those emails — or lack thereof — before Election Day. Maddeningly, we don’t even know whether that will happen — sources are now hinting they may tell us more soon, but it’s not definitive — adding layer upon layer of uncertainty in the final stretch.

      If those partisan BASTARDS are going to CONTINUE to interfere in this election in an effort to SLANDER Clinton, I want to know what they have on TRUMP and his connections to RUSSIA:

      “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity,” he said. “I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public…and yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”

      From “Harry Reid accuses Comey of sitting on proof of Trump-Russia ties, possible Hatch Act violation”

      The FBI’s double standards are OUTRAGEOUS!!

      In view of Comey’s malicious attempt to damage Hillary, I think Reid should tell us what they told him about TRUMP and RUSSIA, especially as he tells us that letting us know would NOT endanger American interests.

    “Huge spikes in reported demonic activity all over the world…”

    WTF?
    As if they have a metric, and actual data, and have applied statistics.

    What is the unit of demonic activity?

    • Phillip in L.A.

      The unit of demonic activity is, of course, called a “Lovecraft.” According to some numbers I just made up, reported demonic activity all over the world remains steady at just under 85 Lovecrafts (not including “background” demonic activity).

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Wow, and here I was just guessing about that penis-pump thing!

          • Bad Tom

            (I am joking in the first line.)

            I am not completely sure what a “porosity meter” is, but it seems to have something to do with lawns.

            Given the very long wire, and the pair of what looks like loop antennas, I’m going to guess it’s really measuring soil conduction by induction, and using that as a proxy for percolation of water.

            A percolation test is required before determining where a septic tank and leach field can go.

            When I’ve had to deal with that, there were there were specific tests that you had to perform, to local government specifications. It’s not clear if the Hello Porosity Meter would serve. It might help you figure out what part of your property would not fail the required test.

            Once, we bid on a property where the septic tank was severely neglected, and every bit of copper pipe had been ripped off by thieves unknown.

            I’m glad we lost that bid.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Fortunately (or not), I have never seen a septic tank or system, and never had to deal with one, but some of my friends from the East and South have complained about them repeatedly.

    Throughout history, mental illness has been mischaracterized as demonic possession. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

      They lied! Stay away from the cake too!

        Yeah, no good comes of Deviled Ham cake.

        • Silver Badger

          That sweet and salty ham and chocolate. It’s like eating chocolate covered children.

    When I was young Westerns were the thing. Then spy shows during the Cold War. Now demons and zombies do seem to be what studios want and the ‘supernatural’ is everywhere. People widely pretend to turn ordinary grocery store items, wine and bread, into blood and meat. Fads pass.

  • edrex

    The media might be driving demonic activity, but it sucks at journalism.

  • There are, indeed, “demons” – they’re called “monotheists”, a plague on this planet for over 2,000 years.

    Happy Samhain, everyone! The veil will be thin tonight – enjoy!

    It’s amusing when someone is described as an ‘expert’ on imaginary topics.

    • Canadian Observer

      And right behind the experts are the theorists (Ancient Alien/astronaut) Theorists. You can tell they are coming from all the giggles that precede them.

      Generally if someone claims to be an ‘occult expert’ what information they *have* is dead wrong and like this guy, he got it from Jack Chick comics. 🙂

    Thanks, Obama.

    I see it’s time for the annual War on Halloween again. Wake me when it’s time to fire off a few Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings.

    Well, that explains my Shih-Tzu.

    These non existent demons who “approach their jobs with deadly earnest” are making Karl Payne a good living scamming ignorant people. Are all these non existent demons still causing all diseases and disabilities as the “holy” bible teaches?

    mental illness…. what to do?

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Yeah no, demons aren’t real. If magic/demons/the supernatural were real we’d have definitive proof by now.

    • Friday

      (Well, technically if you can have that kind of ‘definitive proof’ about something, it’s no longer categorized as ‘supernatural.’ 🙂 )

      • Raising_Rlyeh

        True, as the corollary to clark’s third law states, “Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology.” Though the problem is that if you have proof of something that doesn’t necessarily eliminate it being supernatural. Supernatural really means beyond natural and so, for example, if we saw someone bring a person back from the dead, and it wasn’t a trick or a hoax, we’d have proof of resurrection, and while it would be proven and we’d study the phenomenon the reality remains that we’d have no idea has it is accomplished and would be somewhat supernatural. I mean, all our known rules state the dead cannot come back to life.

    • LookielouE1707

      If demons were real, they’d be accounted for in actuarial tables.

  • Friday

    Leave it to Christianists to turn everything, including their idea of dead people, into a ‘war.’ Gods.

    Psst, WorldNutDaily? You *are* the media, and you’re the ones trying to spread fear and hatred and ignorance and madness and aggression, not to mention seeming to be really bullish on the ‘power of demons’. Maybe you ought to look to that.

    I’ve never heard such bullshit in all my life. They must have seen the movie “The Exorcist” and believed it to be true.
