The Holy Bible warns over and over again that Satan misleads people by pretending to be nice and good. E.g. 2 Corinthians 11:14 "No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light"
but also Genesis 3:4-5, John 8:44, Ephesians 6:11, etc. So often when something seems nice and good, in reality it is here only to lure good Christians away from Jesus Christ. Christians should always be alert for things that seem to be to good to be true.
What I want to tell you about is called "My Little Pony". At first sight this seems like an innocent cartoon aimed at young girls. It is about talking colored ponies and mostly seems to teach children about friendship. It contains no sex, no profanity and seems to be all about working hard and being good friends to each other.
It all looks very innocent:
To be very sure the cartoon would not harm their children, my daughter and her husband consulted their local Pastor. They live in Indianola, Mississippi. Their Pastor didn't see any harm in their children looking at this cartoon, provided they first completed their Bible studies. So their children started looking at the My Little Pony cartoon.
At first nothing seemed wrong. The children seemed to enjoy the cartoon and it even improved how they got along. Them something completely unexpected happened. My daughter's husband started to watch the cartoon as well. At first my daughter assumed this was to make sure the cartoon was suitable for their children, but at some point the husband was even watching the cartoons without their children present. This was a bit suspicious but my daughter is a nice and innocent person so she didn't think anything of it. My daughter didn't even get suspicious when her husband was away from home more and more to go to "meetings". The warning signs were there, but she simply didn't notice them. Innocence can be dangerous, as she would soon learn.
Then one day, something horrific happened. Something no one saw coming. Something almost unimaginable. My daughter's husband told her he had to confess something to her. Then he confessed to her, with tears in his eyes, that he had sinned, that he had gone astray, that he had become a "brony". At first my daughter had no idea what that meant, but then he started explaining it to her in full and horrible detail. It turned out My Little Pony isn't designed for children at all. That's just a cover. In reality it is an unfortunate ploy by Satan to seduce grown man into abandoning Jesus Christ. The meetings he went to, while neglecting his innocent wife and children, turned out to be "brony meets". These meetings apparently consist of grown man dressing like ponies (!) and having forbidden sex with each other. These "bronies" use social media to organize these meetings to have their Satanic orgies all under the false pretense of all liking the same silly children's cartoon. As if anyone would ever believe grown men could appreciate colored girly ponies. Clearly this is something completely different.
I am aware these images are shocking but please allow me to show some examples to make sure you see the severity:
As you can no doubt imagine, my daughter's and her children's life is now completely in shambles. There is a little light at the end of the tunnel though. Now that my son in law has confessed his horrible sins, he is very slowly getting on the right track again. The next few months he will be in a Christian counseling clinic owned by GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann and her husband, Marcus Bachmann. There they will use prayer to rid him of his newfound homosexual urges and he will eventually be re-oriented there and get back on the straight path set out for us by Jesus Christ. And, of course, My Little Pony has been banned from their television set permanently, so Satan can no longer use it to lure their family away from God. Clearly all of us should join forces to do everything in our power to get this horrible filth banned from television. I have already sent out letters to all presidential candidates to make sure they put this issue high on the political agenda and I urge all of you to do the same. I hope everyone will also join me in prayer against My Little Pony so we can rid America of this filth and have children and husbands spend energy on decent Christian virtues instead.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor J.C. Manning, M.D., Ph.D.
