Voodoo And Black Magic Should Not Be Portrayed As Good.

The daughter and I took my three year old grand baby to see The Princess and The Frog Saturday night and I was very disappointed...Let me say my review of the movie in this post is from my point of view as a Christian....I was not prepared for voodoo, graveyards, demons, evil spirits, spells and the occult.... Now I grew up around and saw first hand the effect/affect of voodoo on a people (at least that's what I believe) I have never heard or seen any good come from the practice of voodoo....And being exposed to voodoo at a young age I have/had developed a deep fear of it...How can you explain “friends on the other side,”to a 3 year old?That's a hard thing to do....I was disappoint that the main focus of the movie was not on the Princess and the Frog’s relationship as the title would lead you to believe... Instead it focused mostly on the Evil Shadow and his voodoo curses....He even referred to them as “his help from the underworld....”Now, I am aware that the movie was not consider a Christian movie nor was it billed as one....I just didn't like the voodoo elements in the movie...We are trying to pour into my grand baby that ALL POWER come from Christ...And I don't want in a subtle way make it seems like voodoo and black magic is okay...As Christians we don't seek our help from the dark side...Nor do we seek out tarot card readings and witch doctors...There's no such thing as good voodoo... For the world this may be acceptable, but the Bible is very clear on these issues....All evil comes from Satan and I feel that allowing my baby to see movies like this might lead to accepting things from Satan as normal...I no some people will say "it's just a movie, relax"But for me it's deeper than that...But as Christians we have to protect our children and teach them the ways of the Lord...By not letting the occult into their lives under the premise of "it's just a movie"...In the end voodoo and black magic should not be portrayed as good.
