McDonald’s Launches Occult Ad Campaign With Free Tarot Card Readings

By Movieguide® Contributor

Many McDonald’s customers were dismayed to find out that the fast food restaurant is now offering customers the chance to get a tarot card reading as part of a marketing scheme. 

“McDonald’s is preparing for this week’s celestial and astrological change of Mercury retrograde with both a deal and tarot card readings,” a USA Today story covering the campaign read.

Customers who use the McDonald’s app to buy a medium order of fries also got a free McDouble or McChicken—and the chance to receive a tarot card reading. 

To get the reading, app users are told to go to Madame Adam’s social media posts and comment their names and zodiac signs. Madame Adam is the tarot card reader who will reportedly be giving the readings. 

“I don’t know about you, but for me, Mercury in retrograde can be a real difficult time. So why not ease the discomfort with comfort food?” Adam said in a video promotion. “Want to know what the Tarot has in store for you? Join me and McDonald’s for a very special TikTok Live… to know your fate.”

Tarot cards are part of the false, anti-Christian occult worldview that supports astrology. Mercury retrograde is an important astrological time, where astrologers blame situations like miscommunication and heightened emotions on the position of the stars and planets in the sky.

Tarot cards have become increasingly visible in popular culture, along with other occult practices and objects. Movieguide® has previously reported on a tarot card deck that was sold by Disney: 

Disney recently launched a tarot deck that features iconic villains like SLEEPING BEAUTY’s Maleficent, LION KING’s Scar, and TANGLED’s Mother Gothel.   

The 78-card deck released by Insight Editions is the first set of tarot decks with official licensing from Disney, meant for mass production. 

Insight Editions’ spokesperson Lara Starr said that the company has plans to follow up the “Villains Tarot Deck and Guidebook” deck with an ALICE IN WONDERLAND deck in December. 

According to Religion News Service, professional readers have tested Disney’s recent deck, as well as its previous NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS-themed deck.  

Disney’s new lineup of Tarot decks confirms the current cultural push towards occult spiritual practices and normalization in all forms of media. 

“Truly there is a tarot deck for almost any interest out there,” Banshee ShadowWolf, a retired librarian and longtime tarot reader, said.

Movieguide® Publisher and Founder Dr. Ted Baehr warns against children consuming occult content in his book, FRODO & HARRY: Visual Media and Its Impact on Our Youth. Baehr, along with Movieguide® Editor Tom Snyder, writes:

The Bible is very clear about the evils of witchcraft, sorcery and other occult practices.

In Deut. 18:10-13, for example, Moses clearly says, “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God.” Also, in Rev. 21:8, Jesus Himself says, “The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Furthermore, in Galatians 5:19-21, the Apostle Paul says, “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”

All of these biblical passages – and more besides – show us, beyond all reasonable doubt, that God wants us to avoid completely witchcraft and sorcery.

You must protect your children and grandchildren, therefore, from the occult evils promoted [in media].
