Children and teenagers who are abused often create and live-in little fantasy worlds. He said it himself: "I liked it", it made him feel better than his abusive drunk father did.

This is a matter of psychology..

CBN.com?  Is there a more biased source than The 700 club?  A Christian network associating a scrying device with the Devil...how original.

I watched the video with interest and I can say that the guy seemed pretty much sincere.
My own personal beliefs on Demons, (yes I do believe they exist), and the search for something that will empower you especially by the young, leaves me pondering how anyone can be brave or foolish enough to deal with a ouija board, given that it could, if not definitely, affect your whole life and or eternal existence.

why is it always the super religious people who get possessed and "touched" by evil in some way? I personally think its because of their own paranoia that makes them more able for stuff like this to happen to them.

Ouija board, it is a toy. The idea isn't to talk to the dead, but to look inside yourself. The mechanism of how the board works is very well known.

Actually, the Ouija board and other "spirit communication" devices have existed for thousands of years.  Parker Brothers didn't invent it.  It is a tool used by seers in the past and today, and make no mistake, it can be quite dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken.  However...I do question pretty much anything the Religious Right has to say.  Especially on the 700 club.

Why even bother posting anything from "the 700 Club"???  That's not even reporting, it's all biased.  Waste of time.

@Mattshark... yes, the Ouija Board for all intensive purposes is a toy. It was marketed, however for the express purpose of replicating a seance, conversations with the deceased and/or demons,and yes,there r basic scientific principles tbat explain how the planchett moves but, perhaps ppls belief in the paranormal aspect of it, allows it to be used as a portal...

Or it could just be the way the pendulum swings, like people who are hopelessly in love one minute then absolutely hate all the things inside the other person they previously loved to same degree ...
