No, not the vibrators at Walgreens. Not the "exploit me when I'm three because I'm looking sexxxy" high heels and princess boas from Target. This time, we need to get upset about the Ouija boards at ToysRUs.
I'm not buying any of that stuff. Actually, I know people who refuse to play cards at all because it has too much relation to the Tarot card and/or they don't believe people should be playing games of chance at all. YES, that includes Candyland. Checkers are ok, but Trouble, with that evil Pop-O-Matic, is not.
Well, to be honest with you, that's a more consistent viewpoint to hold than the "pitch a fit because a board game that's been on the shelves since 1847 now comes in PINK" seem to be holding.
But whatever. From the article:
"Toy expert and consultant Chris Byrne said he found 'absolutely nothing' wrong with any version of the game.
'And if something doesn't fit your value or belief system, you don't have to buy it,' Byrne said. 'There's absolutely nothing remotely Christian or un-Christian about it. I think people are projecting their belief system on it."'"
Um... Ol' Chris Byrne might be a "toy expert and consultant," but I sorta doubt he has any sort of theological expertise whatsoever. What do you mean there's "nothing remotely Christian or un-Christian" about contacting (or trying to contact, or pretending to contact) spirits of the dead, demons or assorted what-have-you? Patrick coulda told you that was messed-up when he was THREE.
There's a difference between tolerance, stupidity, and outright lies. That comment falls into the latter category.
