Christian Parents Beware! Horrifying Oriental Cartoon on TV
 
1 week ago, I walked into my living room, and saw my 12 year old son watching television. I didn't spare it a second thought. A few moments later, I was now in the other room, and I heard something on the television which caught my interest. I heard the word "God".

I immediately rushed out to see what wonderful program my son was watching that was preaching the words of God. However, I was horrified when I found out just what it was.

It was a Japanese series called "Death Note". As soon as I saw the typical Japanese style I became worried. And looking back, I wasn't worried enough. This television show is a slow motion Pearl Harbor, but instead of cowardly attacking the country, they are cowardly attacking our children's minds.

I immediately shut off the TV as soon as I heard a character proclaim himself to be God. And I sat down with my child to have a talk, and for him to tell me just what it was that he was watching so I could alert others to the menace of this horrifying oriental cartoon.

According to my son, the show is about a character named "Light" who finds a satanic notebook that allows him to murder those he chooses to. "Light" chooses to try and make the world better by killing off sinners.

Now you may be thinking that a show that preaches sending sinners to hell can't be all bad, I assure you it is.

"Light" (I have trouble calling him that, as it implies Godly qualities), tries to become God himself, in a horribly blasphemous power trip.

What could the Japs do to make the show worse than praising blasphemous murder? Well, I found out when I took a closer look into details of the series itself. I even watched one episode myself (however, I of course was doing it so I could help prevent any other children from being corrupted by Satan).

The theme music is horrifying rock, and the intro is full of blasphemous imagery. Even worse, there are "Gods" in the series, and I hate to call them that so I no longer will. They are evil creatures of death that kill humans. One follows "Light" around throughout the show.

However, most horrifying of all is that the main character is a homosexual. Clearly he is in love with the man who is trying to stop his killing, and that man is clearly gay. There is one scene that is incredibly vulgar involving them drying each other off. And as a final piece of evidence, "Light"'s last name is Yagami. And Yagami spelled backwards is "im a gay".

After finding this all out, I had another talk with my son. I was not mad, it wasn't his fault, it was Satan trying to corrupt him. I made myself clear as to why this television program was horrible, and he understood. He took it upon himself to re-read the Bible after the incident. I'm very proud he could loosen Satan's grip on his mind so easily.

The message I want to send to other parents, is that there is a horrible menace on TV from those awful Japs. I want you all to be aware of it. I'll try and post some more proof of the evil of this television show later. I will find it, I know, for God is watching over me.

The subject matter may or may not be appropriate for a child of 12.

If you allow him to view this content, I would recomend you not only view it with him, but have a discussion afterwards as to the themes and ideas presented in the work.

I would suggest the following topics:
-Justice and Law
-God and those who attempt to surpass him
-Demonic influence and trickery
-Do the ends justify the means?
-Power can corrupt
-How little untruths cascade into great lies

Nothing can be quite so powerful as a father instructing his son on the course of rectitude. Wouldn't be a bad idea to break out a Bible beforehand to review appropriate scripture.

As a personal point of diagreement, Light is not a homosexual. though it par for the course for Japanese animation to render their male characters in an effeminate manner, Light posseses several female interests throughout the series and is likewise attempting to murder L, not engage in a homosexual relationship.

There is a special place in the internet for the sort of people who like to pretend there are gay relationships between characters in Animes. I'm fairly sure you do not belong there.

Amen Brother!

I remember many times when my father would chastize me for being a disgusting sinful little heathen who would spit in the face of CHRIST by disobeying his parents' Godly commands. So many times he would lay his hands on me and instruct me in the way of light, and the sweet whippings he would administer while reading scripture.

Looking back, I know without a doubt that it made me the morally strong man that I am today.

There's a good rule of thumb the parents in our congregation are urged to follow, and it's been working wonderfully so far... Did the nips make it? Don't let your kids near it!

Welcome, P.I.G., and thank you for the information about this horrifying Ornamental menace!

Perhaps you'd like to head on over to the Introductions section (under General Church Fellowship) and introduce yourself to us. We always want to know more about visitors, especially when they appear to be Godly folk like yourself! :thumbsup:

Ok, you want to talk about problems with Death Note? Light was a freaking maniac, we can all see that. L was the best person in it, second is Mello and third is Matt. EVERYONE DIED (except Near). Misa Misa was....how do I put it? She was a poseur and very simple-minded. It really divided fans of it with the whole "Kira vs. L" conflict, I being an L supporter, of course. L was right. Kira was not God, no matter how he tried. Other than that it was great. one of the only series that I actually watched all the way through.

Re: Christian Parents Beware! Horrifying Oriental Cartoon on TV
 
That's all fine and well, but is there anything of Christian value that can be derived from your knowledge other than "Kira was not God"?

I implore you to pull something out profound.

Let's see.... killing is wrong for any reason, try and become God and you will be knocked down in the worst way, nothing and no one is above the law, and (to quote L himself) justice will always prevail.

1 and 2 contradict each other, unless you're a bleeding heart liberal who cries when murderers are executed because you believe criminals should have more rights than victims.
1 is further wrong because it's clearly anti-Biblical. God clearly states who should be legally executed in His Holy Word - sodomites, witches, and rebellious sons as examples. Just wait until the constitution is finally replaced by the Bible. We will finally have a decent society safe for our True Christian™ children!

No one on Earth has the authority to take life. Period. It's like stealing. One who kills is taking what does not rightfully belong to them. That includes all who kill, no matter the reason. There are other ways of achieving justice than killing.

Can you please show me the KJV 1611 Scripture to support this claim?

It doesn't have to be in some old book of quotes for it to be accepted as truth.

The Holy Word of God was given to us by God Almighty, and it is TIMELESS! And one of the commandments God gave us is to avoid God-mocking pervert scum like you. :furious:

Quote:

Jude 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

So if you could go back in time, you would just ask Hitler or Tojo to pretty please not goose step all over America? If there was a gun at your feet and some atheist sodomite was raping your mother and stabbing your father, you'd just threaten to tell on him?

Wrong. There are many reasons to kill, many outlined specifically in the Bible. Light's issue was not the fact that he was killing, but the fact he was murdering, a distinct difference.

As far as stealing is concerned, I regret to inform you that you're not very good at producing reasonable arguments. Though one may "take" a life, you are not actually gaining possesion of anything other than the experience and perhaps an untimely cleaning bill.

I would concur some situation merit alternative forms of justice, but at the same time, recognize that ultimately, the final mormments of our mortal coil pale in comparison to the eternal disposition of our immortal souls.

I believe this might be a bit more appropriate considering the circumstances.

I love anime. I like "Inuyasha" (which the manga has now ended after 11 years), "Trigun", Naruto, etc.
Get your heads out of your asses. They are just cartoons.

Thank the Gods Inuyasha finally ended! How long does it take for 5 people to find a million shards of one shikon jewel? I mean honestly!

I don't like people who make up things about God's Word - I can quote endless verses about men, on earth, who are instructed, by God, to go out and slaughter men, women, children and even the unborn children.

Christ also asks his disciples to kill His enemies, and this at a time when He (and they) were on earth.

How do you interpret "Thou shalt not suffer a <insert abomination> to live", which occurs many times in the Bible?
