Quote# 623

And I believe we can no more celebrate Halloween in a "good" way than we could commit adultry in a good way or steal in moderation.

It's like the old brownie story. They parents told their children that the brownies they made had just a little poop in them. They wouldn't be able to taste, or smell it, so they shouldn't worry about eating the poop.

This story is the same with Halloween. No matter how much icing is on the brownies or how much "christianized" chocalate we sprinkle into the mixture, they are still poop brownies and fully inedible as Christians.

I think the brownie analogy holds fine for adultery or theft, but it is just a non sequitur when applied to Halloween. There's nothing bad or evil about Halloween itself.

Costumes? Not evil.

Candy? Fattening, maybe, but not evil.

The trick-or-treating ritual? Not evil (unless the kids follow up on the implied threat, which most of them aren't even aware they're making anyway).

Depriving children of the joy of a holiday that emphasizes imagination, creativity, and fun, replacing it with fear, hate, and general disinformation? Now THAT's evil!

Never heard that analogy before.

That's right kiddies - always wash your hands (of Christianity)

Good thing E. coli would be destroyed in the baking process then!

On that note:
Christmas is a delightful pagan midwinter (summer in southern hemisphere) festival with lots of pagan traditions like Christmas trees, don't let the little Jesus poop get in the way of enjoying the festive season.

\"they are still poop brownies and fully as indigestible as Christianity.\"

There, fixed!

Brownies? Maybe your parents meant drugs..

they are still poop brownies and as fully inedible as Christians.
.... so you've tried eating Christians?

Hallowe'en disowned the abrahamic religions, Baruch, didn't you get the memo?

Mmmm, gotta love the rich, delicious taste of those crappy Christians. Every mouthful is loaded with shit!

Speaking of which, would you care to splice Christmas from Yule this year?

"Poop in the brownies"?

Uh, from what I remember of the '60s we put some "shit" in the brownies, but it wasn't fecal in any way. I think BHS (the Bushy Haired Stranger?) may have misinterpreted. The word shit is fairly versatile.

Ah, yes...the old "poop in the brownies" argument. WTFF?!

BTW - I have committed adultery in many good ways.

Pot brownies?

The "old" poop in the brownies story? No wonder these people believe in dangerous fairy tales... they grew up in households where shit-cakes were commonplace.

Halloween is just another attempt by the Church to pave over old pagan festivities with new Christian ones.
Samhain was a harvest festival before the kelts were Christianized. Pope Gregorius III moved All Hallows' Day from May to November. But, they did not succeed in wiping out the old Samhain rituals.

We usually celebrate Halloween in a good way. We have a party for our friends. Costumes are optional. We eat and talk and enjoy each other's company.
VERY far from adultery or stealing, in my book.

I can see I grew up in a completely different circle than this dolt. I have never, ever heard the old poop in the brownie story.
I don't really get the ending. Does Christians also have poop in them? Are the brownies Christian? Could the brownies have been edible if they where not Christian?

Now why the hell would someone ruin delicious brownie mix with poop just to trick their kids?

12/13/2010 9:40:13 PM


Know why you haven't heard the Poop in the Brownie story? Because it's an old (50s or 60s) story Christians told their kids who wanted to go trick or treating. Mistrust all kids

I do believe this fundie, for a change, actually has a grasp on an anology with this post.

I know. No matter how paranoid the Christians are, the poop they've shoved into the wonderful brownie of Halloween will never ruin this holiday.

Brownie-poopers should be put to death.

didnt God order his people to eat poop ? that would make poop brownies a historical remeberance of Gods command. That would be ok, wouldnt it ?

10/29/2011 6:10:02 PM


Do you celebrate Christmas? That's a pagan holiday, too.

The concept that you cannot steal in moderation explains rampant capitalism.

Hold on! Adultery is fine if it's done by a high-up member of the clergy or Republican Party. Even GAY adultery and pedophilia are okay in these groups. You don't see any fundies pointing out Newt Gringrich's ridiculous number of affairs or the widescale abuse of children by Catholic priests (I don't even see Protestants use that one very often).
