Come Celebrate The Demonic Harvest

It both amuses and appals me when some Christians make shit up in an attempt to try to prove how their god is so much better than anyone else’s.  This article by Kimberly Davies called The Danger of Celebrating Halloween fell into the amusing category cause it is so out there that the fact that anyone could believe this nonsense is mind boggling.
She writes

The word “holiday” means “holy day.” But there is nothing holy about Halloween. The root word of Halloween is “hallow,” which means “holy, consecrated and set apart for service.” If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy—Lucifer’s!

And it just gets better from there on in.

She comes up with gems like

Most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

and

During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest.

The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) originally published this article on their site, but now appear to feel differently about promoting this idiotic nonsense as this article has since been removed.  However, thanks to the caching powers of Google, we can still enjoy it in all its entirety.  Thanks Google!

  1. Maybe that’s why I can’t tolerate sweets anymore. Because they are truly evil *rolls eyes*

  2. oh boy, what drivel. I nearly spat my coffee over the keyboard when I read the line about sweets. Witches don’t have the time to get all of that stuff done do they?

  3. sure they have the time.. but who cares? As far as I am concerned, any curse laid by a witch is just as effective as a blessing from a priest.

    meaningless blah blah is meaningless blah blah, no matter what side of the aisle it comes from.

    (also.. MOST modern witches are ‘white’, and believe in the three-fold (or other number) return. As in, every blessing/curse/whatever is visited back on the originator in spades.)
