    Report: Ouija board sends three to hospital in Mexico

    Way too many people think this sort of thing is harmless. I think it's a shame the local priest refused to do an exorcism on the grounds they were not regular churchgoers. Jesus healed those who came to him with faith.

    I've never seen one in use. I always thought they were just powerless wooden boards?

    The boards themselves are just wood. It's the idea that if you ask for the supernatural to come, you shouldn't be surprised if they do.

    I dunno.

    Still, Ouija boards aren't something to have in your household. They may be manufactured purely for entertainment purposes, but anytime you deliberately try to contact spirits, they may just answer.

    Acts 19 makes a big deal about people burning their sorcery scrolls that had been their livelihood upon conversion to Christianity. The early church took this sort of thing far more seriously than we do.

    Were any medical tests done to rule out things like drug use? Also, are supernatural demons usually effected by modern, earthly medications? From the article:

    However, all three were treated with painkillers, anti stress medication and eye drops. Soon, their symptoms— "double vision … muscle spasms and difficulty swallowing," Demesa said— subsided.
    And rogues article:

    They restrained Alexandra to prevent her from hurting herself, before treating the three with painkillers, anti-stress medication and eye drops, which seemingly worked.

    Humans are usually affected - maybe it isn't so much fun possessing someone that's in drug induced catatonia?

    The early Church took 'everything' more seriously than people do now.
