The Not-So-Much War On Christmas
AlterNet.org has an article on The War on Halloween and the mixed-bag views of conservatives on the holiday.
My favorite quote is this...
Many on the religious right have long shunned the holiday as a force of evil. As a Christian website puts it, “Halloween is based upon modern Wiccan interpretations of pre-Christian paganism and involve occultic rites and practices that Christians should have no dealings with.”
WOW! You've just described Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas too!
Sorry, I've found a even more bestest quote:
“[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches..."
Puhleaze...as long as you continue bribing kids with candy (or at least the stupefying chemicals in turkey) the pagan-based holidays of Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas ain't going nowhere.
