Is D&D evil? Are "Demons" in D&D equivilant with playing with true demonic forces?

I'm curious to everyones discussion on this topic. This thread was split off of the "New website with Christian Reviews" in which D&D was brought up... My last post in that thread on this topic was in response to someone referring to the "Demons" in D&D as "demonic forces":

Iím assuming you are a born again Christian so am skipping the basics of why playing with demonic forces/things is wrong.

Since when did D&D "Demonic" and devil themes constitute "demonic forces"? I am curious since I have the D&D book on "Demons" and the separate book on "Devils" (in D&D that is) I find it hard to believe that using those completely made up fantastical sources can even come close to being the same as playing with true demonic forces.
