Have you taken your children or grandchildren to see Wreck-It Ralph, the latest Disney movie released November 2, 2012?
I haven’t seen the film but my assistant took his granddaughter to see it this past weekend. After watching the movie it almost made him swear off movies. Or at lease go see the movie ahead of time before he takes his granddaughter to see another movie.
Kid’s movies should be made for kids. No innuendos, no bad language, no sexually suggestive material. Let the kids be kids. They will grow up fast enough. But I guess Disney doesn’t feel that way. They are trying to indoctrinate them at the earliest age possible.
If you haven’t heard of the movie, it’s about the characters of arcade video games, in particular, Wreck-It Ralph from the game Fix-It Felix. Ralph is the bad guy in the game and he is tired of being the bad guy. All he does is wreck the building and Felix comes behind him and fixes it for which he receives a medal. Ralph is tired of being the bad guy and wants to be a good guy so he can get a medal.
The movie is pretty good but for one particular scene. It’s very subtle and most people probably saw nothing wrong with it. But it’s there and every parent and grandparent needs to watch out for it.
In the movie all the bad guys get together for what looks like an ‘AA’ style support group. In this group sitting next to Ralph is a red colored character with horns that Ralph calls ‘Satan’ who quickly corrects him and says his name is ‘Sateen’ [my own spelling of how he says it]. The implication, I believe, is that, like the other video game bad guy characters, Satan is, as one of the characters says, “Ralph[Satan], you’re a bad guy but this doesn’t mean you are a BAD GUY.”
They close out the meeting with the Bad Guy Affirmation, including Satan – I am BAD, and that’s GOOD. I will never be GOOD, and that’s not BAD. There’s no one I’d rather be than ME.
With these type of subtle indoctrination our children are being steered towards a dangerous path; a path of destruction of their souls.
The bible warns, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who
put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for
sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20
This type of indoctrination is what leads people to choosing an evil like abortion and calling it a good choice. The killing of an unborn child is never a good.
So, if you do go see the movie, make sure you talk with your children and grandchildren about this scene. Don’t assume that they aren’t paying attention. Use it as a teaching moment. Teach them that evil is always BAD. Teach them that Satan, regardless of what he may call himself, is always BAD and EVIL and that he is NOT GOOD.
