|School controversy over the use of the game, “Magic the Gathering.”
|Story Information: A school in New York has banned the card game "Magic, the Gathering." Are your kids being taught to worship the devil? Some parents in Westchester say their school is a school for Satan, and their children are in danger! They took their case to federal court. But many other parents are coming to the school's defense. Some parents in Bedford, New York claimed their kids were being brainwashed with Satan games and sick rituals, but are their claims legitimate, or are they just trying to impose their religion on others? Now some parents say while they did not like some of the images on the cards, they say that’s not the point. They say the card game challenged the kids, and stimulated learning. Meantime, Magic The Gathering won't be played anytime soon. Not because it was banned. But because the one person who taught it, retired.
