You might have heard that Hasbro recently came up with a Ouija board “just for girls.” What, you ask, makes a game that consists of a piece of a cardboard and a plastic triangle “just for girls?” Why, the color pink, of course!
But the sleepover staple may not be all fun and games. According to critics, Toys R Us may be after something more than just your 20 bucks. They just might have their sights on your daughter’s soul.
According to Stephan Phelan, of the pro-life and missionary organization Human Life International, Ouija board is “a dangerous spiritual game and for [Hasbro] to treat it as just another game is quite dishonest.” This sentiment has been echoed by several customers complaining at Amazon.com, and in fact, Toys R Us is phasing the game out, although they haven’t said why.
Phelan elaborated, “Christians should know, well everyone should know, that it’s opening up a person to attack, spiritually. Christians shouldn’t use it.” Fortunately, since Jewish and Muslim children are already going straight to hell, they’re welcome to channel all those pastel girl-ghosts all they want!
According to Fox News, “Phelan also noted that the pink version of the game is explicitly marketed to young girls who may want to partake in ‘something dangerous’ during a late-night sleepover.” Yes, we all know that no tween girl can be trusted alone with an invisible spirit.
Phelan added, “It’s pink. That wouldn’t appeal to me when I was eight.” That’s right, parents. The color pink is only appealing to girls; demons are after girls; therefore, Ouija board could steal your daughter’s soul.
Somehow I don’t think Hasbro had burning spiritual struggle on their minds when they started marketing the pink Ouija board. Here’s some of the ad copy:
It has always been mysterious. It has always been mystifying. And now the OUIJA Board is just for you, girl. With 72 fun questions included, you’ll never run out of things to ask. Who will call/text me next? Will I be a famous actor someday? Who wishes they could trade places with me?
But such thinly-veiled frivolity is not going to fool Phelan.
