Mark Driscoll: 'Twilight' Is for Girls What Porn Is to Boys

Pastor Mark Driscoll says the "Twilight" movies series is not just harmless drivel for pre-teen girls.

From an article in The Christian Post:
"I have ranted on this garbage-tastic phenomenon before, and find the whole genre profoundly troubling. The popularity of supernatural soap operas has inspired some real-life demonic trends. Overreaction? Tell that to the kids biting, cutting, drinking blood – sometimes while having sex – and sinking deeper into the occult."

In his blog post, Driscoll listed several news stories about youth acting out vampire-like behavior.
"Teenagers obsessed with the Twilight vampire saga, or those simply fascinated with fangs, reportedly have been biting each other – hard – and then licking or sucking the blood," he quoted NBC News. "'These are kids who think they are real vampires,' said Dr. Orly Avitzur. [. . .] 'Having that thick, warm copper-tasting blood in my mouth is the best thing I can think of!' wrote a teenager identified as 'GothicGirl10' this year. 'Sometimes my boyfriend lets me feed off him. I let him feed off me as well.'"
