Poke-Oh-No!

Pokemon are Cyber Demons says Rick Wiles.

Everyone seems to be playing PokemonGo! But according to Rick Wiles the app is a literally fiendish plot to attack Christianity by sending "cyberdemons" to target churches. Now, the above link goes to a huffpost article (even after I said I wasn't going to use them anymore, sorry) that is really dismissive to the point of absurdity. So I encourage you to listen to what the man himself has to say about it.

First, does he really think it requires a game to find churches? Google maps alone can do that, and if you want to go old school there used to be these things called Phone Books!
Second, he says pokemon are "cyberdemons" but gives no real reason for calling them that, other than he doesn't understand them.

However, he is not the first to denounce Pokemon as Satanic.

Egyptian religious authorities have condemned the game as anti-Islamic.

Ironically,Pokemon is heavily influenced by Shinto beliefs in kami, nature spirits that inhabit the natural world; but since these people don't want actually do research they can't use that as an argument.

PokemonGo! thy way and sin no more.
