Many  people  ask  what is B.A.D.D., INC.   B.A.D.D.  stands  for 
Bothered  About D & D and other harmful influences  on  children.  
We  are an organization dedicated to educating the public on  the 
harmful  effects of entertainment violence which is occuring  and 
growing  in our society.  We are concerned with violent forms  of 
entertainment such as:  violent-occult related rock music,  role-
playing  games that utilize occult mythology and the  worship  of 
occult  gods in role playing situations like Dungeons  &  Dragons 
(R), teen satanism involving murder and suicide, and  pornography 
as  it is affecting adolescent behavior and  reshaping  attitudes 
and values in a negative manner.

Our hopes are to be influential in the restoration of respect for 
human life.

The  group was founded in 1983 by Patricia Pulling  of  Richmond, 
Virginia.   Patricia lost a 16 year old son to suicide which  was 
directly related to the game of Dungeons & Dragons (R).   B.A.D.D 
was  incorporated in 1984 and enjoys tax exempt status (509)  (a) 
(1)  & 170 (b) (1) (A) (vi).  We are strictly voluntary  with  no 
paid staff and we are totally funded by private donations.

B.A.D.D serves the informational needs of people nationwide.   We 
supply  law  enforcement, schools,  churches,  doctors,  lawyers, 
psychiatrists, social workers and people from all walks of  life.  
We  have  done hundreds of media presentations ranging  from  "60 
Minutes"  to  Pat Robertson's "700 Club", including  The  Chicago 
Tribune,  USA Today, Newsweek, and many many more.  We have  even 
given media presentations for Canada, Australia, and England.  We 
give seminars and lectures all over the country.

B.A.D.D  also acts as a referral system for people who need  help 
regarding  entertainment  violence issues.  We believe  that  the 
problem  is  not only a lack of information but many  times  mis-
information.  We feel that if we all work together we can improve 
our society for our children.

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to  do 
nothing."  Edmund Burke
