A parent recently asked other parents if it was okay for his 10-year-old daughter to bring a satanic water bottle inspired by the popular Netflix show “Stranger Things: Season 4” to her Christian school on an internet-based forum. in London. Mumsnet.
A number of parents responded, amazed that one parent would even let their young child watch the show.
The Mumsnet user, who goes through the flight of the seven million bumblebees, explained that her daughter loves Stranger Things and recently bought a bottle of water with the word “Hellfire Club” on it, which is the name of a high school “Dungeons and Dragons” club on the show. The logo contains the image of a devil head.
The popular tabletop role-playing game “Dungeons and Dragons” (also known as “D&D” and created in 1974) plays an important role throughout the series. “D&D” has been considered by many conservative Christians to be demonic due to its occult elements. An article from the entertainment publication “Focus on the Family”Branchshared that “some former players have said ‘D&D’ brought them into contact with demonic activity.”

“Stranger Things: Season 4” also shows graphic images of an underworld called “the upside down,” which is an alternate world that one might assume to represent some form of hell and has creatures called “Demobats.” These creatures strangle and eat humans when trapped in the alternate world. The “Upside Down” is also the home of Vecna, a demonic skull-like creature that haunts and kills human prey by entering their thoughts.
The parent also explained that although she sends her child to a Christian school, hers is not a religious family. Thus, she asked if she was being unreasonable in allowing her daughter to bring the water bottle to school, since it was merely a logo from the TV show rather than an image. demonic.
“It is in no way about worshiping the devil or anything that is actually related to the devil or religion,” the parent said, comparing the devil-adorned water bottle to “Harry Potter ” and “Star Wars”.
The parent further shared that his daughter had been “reprimanded” by a teacher a few weeks prior for drawing a picture of a devil. The teacher told him that it was not “appropriate to draw a devil in a Christian school”.

The parent thinks that due to the teacher’s previous actions, the school might take the same action when they see the “Hellfire Club” water bottle.
