This article was published a few years ago, but with Halloween approaching, I thought I should resurrect it.
In an article on the CBN web site, writer Kimberley Daniels (See Note) warned her readers to steer clear of Halloween candy. She says that “…most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches. 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.”
One more quote. “Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil…”
I am not making this up. There are people who really believe this kind of stuff.
I am sure most Christians are able to dismiss this kind of superstitious fear mongering, and just enjoy handing out trick-or-treats and laughing at the kids’ costumes.
But the lunatics are out there, and they are scarier by far than the imaginary goblins and ghosts. I am sure that, if they had their way, Halloween would be abolished.
NOTE: Kimberly Daniels is a piece of work. She is a minister who performs exorcisms, religious author, politician, former sex worker and mother of six from Jacksonville, Florida. She is currently serving her second term as the representative for Florida House of Representatives District 14 (part of Duval County) as a member of the Democratic Party, but recently lost her party’s primary election to Angie Nixon. Yes, you read that right. A religious nutcase and a Democratic politician. Only In Florida. Read more here:
