It is not, it is just someone's opinion.

I laugh at all the people stereotyping religion here. Getting all their info from movies and anti-religion groups, or from a few people have said and saying that is how everyone is. I don't believe in Christ, but I stay a part of my church because of all the good things they do in the community and world.


Religion can be a positive force for good. Many of the world's religions have positive messages, and are good spiritual guides for people who need guidance at that level. Its when you start to approach religion as an absolute truth and not as merely a spiritual guide that you get into problems. You get "dogma", and dogma in many religions is the source of sentiment that preaches separation, fear of other beliefs, and ultimately distrust and hatred of those not within your closed circle.

This is what's happening to many Christian Churches in the United States. Westboro Baptist Church is a prime example of the evils of Dogma, and what happens when you allow it to corrupt your beliefs.

If you approach the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, the Hindu Vedas, and etc. as spiritual guides rather than the absolute truth then you avoid these dangerous pitfalls.

I have heard that the newest trend in hell is that they force you to watch all seasons of Naruto while satan himself offends your waifu.

In the end, otaku satan isn't any better than mainstream satan...

I will say that I am kind of annoyed by how much the Japanese don't care at all about accurately portraying Christians in their anime, or even fantasy rehashes of Christians. Because I take that as sort of a cynical half-serious commentary about the nature of religion as a whole. It really rubs me the wrong way.

The more ridiculous it is, the easier it is to deal with, but I find the whole "demons are good, angels are bad" or just the "organized religion is bad" deal to be really annoying after a while, no matter how ridiculously it's portrayed.

On the other hand, the only direct dealings the Japanese had with Christians for a long time was with the Jesuits... Ah, but then the whole topic could get pretty messy.

anime is made up, but then again so is god. in the end does it really matter if one made up thing is bad for the other made up thing?

JP received a bad first impression of Christianity and so did I. The dislike shows as common themes amongst many stories, in games, anime, manga, etc. with the church being evil in the end. Usually characters are very human, but when it comes to the Church... I'll say no more as my personal feelings bubble up.

Lol I know what you mean I saw the same page. No it's not satanic, BUT it does deal with a lot of super natural themes and stuff that would be considered satanic. But that's why I like anime, because it goes to boundaries where most cartoons dont dare.

My mom legitimately thought Pokemon was a gateway to spirit worship because of how it reflected traditional Japanese beliefs. I think it had to do with animism or something. And I remember being disturbed by the hollows in Bleach the first time I saw them because of how I was raised. Kind of embarrassing to admit, but I can understand the mindset.

Although now I just think it's kind of absurd.
