Ok, so I’m a day late, I had this article bookmarked to write about it the other day, but hell…its the weekend, sue me! A day late never hurt anyone, right??
Moving on, I came across this article in a random google search, I think my key words were, “Moonbat crazy evangelicals”, (I’m kidding, but hey, try it, it might just work) Now, I know most “normal” Americans don’t view Halloween as anything else than a fun night, dress the kiddos up in cute little costumes, the bigger kids get a bit more scary, then you run around the neighborhood gathering as much candy as you can possibly carry. Adults tend to have a different take on Halloween, but its still generally fun, go out to Haunted Houses, attend a costume party, etc. Not much devil worship happening, unless you count worshiping the Porcelain God after too much candy or alcohol, but that’s the extent of it. Of course there are the fringe groups, the Vampires, Witches and other forms of crazy that take Halloween to the extreme and celebrate it Kimberly Daniels suggests, but they’re about as rare as Christians thinking Halloween is as evil as the Devil.
Well this loon, from the Pat Robertson party of insanity, decided to write an article about how bad Halloween is for Christians. She says, “I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.” Oh for the love of all things sweet, the only demon coming from candy is the demon that makes my jeans too small! Which also happens to be the cousin of the demon that makes me want candy, but hey…I gotta give in to the dark side sometimes too.
But it gets even better, she goes on to explain all the terrible evil things that happen by the hand of demons on Halloween:
The word “occult” means “secret.” The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
* Sex with demons
* Orgies between animals and humans
* Animal and human sacrifices
* Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
* Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
* Revel nights
* Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
* Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.
But the most ridiculous part about this whole story is that even Pat Roberson’s website, CBN.com, thought it was too insane for even their website and they took the story down. Amazing!!! And even more “WTF-ish” is MSNBC is one of the only “news orgs” that did a story on it! (Disclaimer: I could have missed more, but to be completely honest, one viewing of a clip was enough for me, seriously…this is insanity at its finest.) So its becoming abundantly clear that some of the seriously extreme right wing groups in this country are, well, insane! Makes all those “crazy tea-partiers” look not so crazy after all! Does this mean its the end of the world too? I can’t keep up with all the crazy.
