Demonic Candy Alert!

The Huffington Post has up an article about demonic candy. Apparently, Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network posted a blog by Kimberly Daniels warning of evil Milk Duds and satanic candycorn. I surfed to the CBN website but it looks like they took the post down. But according to Huff Post the CBN writer wrote that:

"During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches."

  1. superstition makes for some crazy ideas. as a recovering evangelical, i should know. i used to have some of those superstitions, though none as outlandish as this one. though i would not allow my kids to read hp books for years. eventually, after i started writing stories, i realized that the hp books were just that: stories. Not a devil's gate to my kid's soul. And besides, if it only took a novel to seduce my kid away from the family faith, well, they were on thin ice to begin with.

    (and for the record, i am happily raising one tender hearted Christ loving girl and one snarky, critically minded agnostic boy...and hp had nothing to do with either...!)

  2. Maybe true, maybe not. But anything scary in nature - I don't let my chidren have anything to do with it. But it's just trick and treat, you say - it's just all fun... well, maybe we can thing of something else that is funny, soothing and enjoyable to do as a family during that day...
