Devil worship a day early.

Halloween on Sunday causes some troubles
"It's a day for the good Lord, not for the devil," said Barbara Braswell, who plans to send her 4-year-old granddaughter Maliyah out trick-or-treating in a princess costume on Saturday instead.
So it's OK to worship the Lord of the Underworld, as long as it's not on a Sunday?
"You just don't do it on Sunday," said Sandra Hulsey of Greenville, Ga. "That's Christ's day. You go to church on Sunday, you don't go out and celebrate the devil. That'll confuse a child."
What about all the other inconsistencies they teach in church? Won't those confuse the children as well? These must be the same people who thought the Harry Potter movies promoted devil worship.
The patchwork of trick-or-treat zones could work to children's advantage: Some might go out on both nights to get all the treats they can.
That say's it all. The kids could give a shit about the devil, they are interested in candy.

Halloween is no more about celebrating the devil than Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ. Halloween is about candy. Christmas is about presents. Both are about money. It's all just a clever way for Wal-Mart and Target to sell a few billion dollars worth of extra merchandise every year.

why did you use anonymous? Everyone tells Ed to shut up. It is ok to use your name to tell him to shut up. Or are you one of those devil worshiping christians that believes Jesus was born on Dec. 24? And that is why you are to scared to use your name?
