"Charlie, Charlie" Challenge is a game now infamous on social media that encourage players to summon a demon. According to a Mirror Online, a Catholic priest has issued a letter warning about the dangers involved with doing such a ritual, and that the challenge is never an innocent game. The letter was shared on Twitter by a student, however, the priest has yet to confirm the authenticity.
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) -In the open-letter to students of Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School in Philadelphia, America, Father Stephen McCarthy expressed his concerns about the growing trend among people over social media.
He explained, the "Charlie, Charlie" Challenge is not a game to play and there is no way to know what will happen after demons are actually summoned to the homes.
Father Stephen McCarthy expressed his concern about the growing trend among people in social media.
"There is a dangerous game going around on social media which openly encourages impressionable young people to summon demons," the letter reads. "I want to remind you all there is no such thing as 'innocently' playing with demons. Please be sure to NOT participate and encourage others to avoid participation as well. The problem with opening yourself up to demonic activity is that it opens a window of possibilities which is not easily closed."
The "demonic activity" became a trend on Twitter, Monday, with people posting videos participating in the challenge. Using two pencils, that challengers balance to form a cross over a paper with yes and no on either side, the "Charlie, Charlie" Challenge is basically a rip-off of the Ouija board.
Participants chant the words, "Charlie, Charlie are you here" until the pencil moves towards a yes. According to the report by the Independent UK, the activity is presumed to come from an ancient Mexican tradition allegedly used in summoning a demon.
