Then why is there such an outcry over the occultism of the Ouija board? It and similar talking boards have long been considered evil, probably because of their "ability" to communicate with spirits, ghosts, and whatever else your mind can come up with. Now, Parker Brothers bought the Ouija (from the French "Oui" and the German "Ja," both meaning "yes") board rights from the Fuld family, who had, during WWI tried to market the board as a scientific instrument to avoid paying a tax on shipping games, but the Government disagreed, stating that it was, indeed a game.
If the government says it's a game, then why would religious folk fear it as a tool of the occult? Is it any more dangerous than, say, Monopoly (another Parker Brothers game)? I don't think so.
I confess, my friends and I had our Ouija phase, as did my mom, my sister, and many of my other friends. As far as I know, none of us are in the occult, and most of us have gone on to have very wholesome, good lives, except for one of my friends, who's doing 72 years for murder. Oh well, let the complain.
