25 Normal Things Labeled As “Satanic” For No Apparent Reason, As Shared In This Online Group
In Christianity, believers use the Bible to guide them in life and give them directions about living a virtuous life. Yet, what is so fascinating is that, as with many things in life, the holy book can be interpreted differently by different people. Any quote from the Bible can be open to interpretation by the person reading it. Thus, Christians often have varying beliefs about the teachings in the Bible. Certain moral beliefs and assumptions may differ from another Christian’s principles or seem entirely unacceptable to non-believers.
Sometimes these assumptions can get pretty bewildering and even seem absurd to some. User Dreammare56 turned to the Ask Reddit community and asked fellow group members, “What’s the stupidest thing [you’ve] ever seen a religious person call ‘satanic’?” Thousands of people jumped to the comments section to reveal some of the most bizarre cases when mundane things were labeled ‘satanic.’ Perhaps the saying “don’t judge what you don’t understand” perfectly fits the occasion.

Rocks. I’m a rock hound, and collect rocks, gems, and stones. The link between crystals and spirituality has gotten me called a devil worshipper…for liking rocks. I don’t even use them spiritually, I just like shiny s**t.

My dad wouldn’t let me watch anything that had magic or monsters because he thought it would let demons into the house. This included power rangers, Ben 10, H20 just add water, harry potter, scooby doo and more.
The most ridiculous one was not letting me watch Jessie on Disney channel. This had no magic or monsters but he thought that the pet lizard one of the characters had represented the snake that deceived Eve into eating the apple.

I’m not joking or lying. When I was a kid, early 90’s, there was a “God Botherer” protesting outside a Superdrug (UK Pharmacy chain) screaming about the Satanism of feminine hygiene products corrupting women into sin. This God Botherer was a woman.

F**king Hello Kitty. Some religious f**ktards from my sister-in-law’s family, took away all the Hello Kitty toys from my niece and burnt them because… sigh… there is a demon in the sumerian mythology who, just like the famous cartoon cat, has no mouth, so Hello Kitty is obviously daemonic.
