[On Halloween]

Also, if you are really concerened about the impact of "Satan's holiday" dress your children up as biblical figures and use the opportunity to knock on people's doors as a chance to evanglize.

A few times when were kids my Dad would introduce himself as a preacher and give out pocket versions of the new testiment.

Not fair. It is meant to be the children's chance to scare people. You have every other day of the year.

Exploit your children for your own selfgratification.

Hand out Test-A-Mints!
They're wholly holy and keep your breath fundie-fresh!

Sounds like a quick and easy way to get the door slammed in yor face..

Yeah, because kids are so fucking sick of candy!

Does he hand out nails at Easter?

Is that like a breath mint?

An minister I knew used to invite trick-or-treaters in & then lecture them on the scriptures for half an hour. I wonder if Raindog is one of his distant relatives?

How did a day based on scaring away demons become Satan’s day?

1/6/2007 11:28:50 PM


Any day that doesn't celebrate Christianity is Satan's day.

You spelled your own scriptures wrong. It's 'testament'.

Hey, there can be some pretty damned gory Biblical figures. I'd be Judith right after beheading Holofernes.

For those of you who weren't raised catholic ...

Pocket testiment = Biblical passage written on the testicles and poked through hole in pocket.

Mngamojemo:Or John the Baptist after his head was cut off. Or Saint Paul half eaten by a lion. Or one of the forty children eaten by a bear. On the other hand, if the kid dresses as David, he'll have excuse to carry a slingshot.
And was it Esther or Ruth that was dancing naked on the table for her husbands friends?(just for teens and adults. They need to have their fun too.)

And the people in the houses he visited smiled and took them. Then they promptly threw them away or put them in a junk drawer.

Do they seriously think they are spreading the word this way? The only people that would keep those Bibles are the believers.

11/11/2008 7:42:23 AM


Yeah, that'll be good for your children's self-esteem.

"Bet his house got egged afterward."

Or worse: dog turds.

"Hand out Test-A-Mints!
They're wholly holy and keep your breath fundie-fresh! "
That needs to be an actual product. Maybe cross-shaped breath mints.

I'd be more concerned about my spelling, in your position.

You also seem to miss the point that the only people who'd be interested in your evangelising and biblical tracts are the ones who think like you. This would be a fairly classic case of preaching to the converted. The rest would either slam the door or chuck the "testiment" into the nearest trash can.

Protip: If you're going out for Halloween as a biblical figure, you probably shouldn't go out as pre-Fall Adam/Eve. Just sayin'.

Any kids who come to my door for a "chance to evangelize" on trick-or-treat night will find themselves doused with a bucket of urine. I am not kidding.

Do the research, fucker.
Halloween has nothing to do with Satan. It started of as All Hallows Eve (also known as All Souls Eve)on which it was believed that the boundry between Life and Death weakened, so the people left out offerings to appease the Ghosts.
Over time, the Ghosts became kids in monster costumes and the offerings became free candy.
The day is also All Saint's Day, which makes it a Christian holiday as well.

Why anyone would possibly think of it as Satan's Holiday is beyond me.
