Posted on 10/29/2009 8:15:56 PM PDT by tlb
. TV preacher Pat Robertsons Web site has just issued a bulletin warning Americans of the real threat we face this season: Demons may be lurking in our Halloween candy.
In a column on the Christian Broadcasting Networks Web site, writer Kimberly Daniels asserts that demons sneak into bags of Halloween candy at grocery stores.
[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches, Daniels wrote. I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.
The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, urged Robertson and Daniels to lighten up.
Ive heard of the devil being in the details, but to think hes lurking inside a Snickers bar is a little too much, Lynn quipped. Pat Robertson has always peddled some scary stuff, but this is over the top.
Daniels asserts that far from being harmless fun, Halloween is a veritable doorway to hell, full of literal monsters.
Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats, she wrote. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.

I’ve always been suspicious of nougat — even at other times of the year. It just seems sinister somehow.
One look at the world around us, and I need no further proof of the reality of demons, but I think they’re far more likely found on Capitol Hill and the White House these days.
(Although Ole Jed and his entourage might just be a little too deep into the candy jar - it would explain a lot!)
I was raised in Pentecostal churches all my life and never once was I not allowed to participate in halloween. This is a bit “o’er the top” IMHO. I understand the dangers are greater as the worldwide communication grows tighter, but kids need halloween as a very good old fashioned release. (not to mention that huge Kroger bag filled with candy) Good Grief.
You FOOL! You’ll unleash the Prince of Darkness!
I think that I shall never see... my feet.
I think it only proper to end this portion of our discussion with a prayer.
Lord, my soul is ripped with riot,
Incited by my wicked diet.
We are what we eat, said a wise old man,
And Lord, if that’s true, I’m a garbage can!
I want to rise on Judgment Day, that’s plain,
But at my present weight, I’ll need a crane!
So grant me strength that I may not fall
Into the clutches of cholesterol.
May my flesh with carrot curls be sated
That my soul may be polyunsaturated.
And show me the light that I may bear witness
To the President’s Council on Physical Fitness.
At oleomargarine I’ll never mutter,
For the road to hell is spread with butter.
And cake is cursed, and cream is awful,
And Satan is hiding in every waffle.
Mephistopheles lurks in provolone,
The devil is in each slice of bologna,
Beelzebub is a chocolate drop,
And Lucifer is a lollipop!
Give me this day my daily slice -
But cut it thin and toast it twice.
I beg upon my dimpled knees,
Deliver me from Jujubees.
And my when days of trial are done
And my war with malted milks is won,
Let me stand with the saints in heaven
In a shining robe - Size 37!
I can do it, Lord, if you’ll show to me
The virtues of lettuce and celery.
If you’ll teach me the evils of mayonnaise,
The sinfulness of hollandaise
And pasta a la milanese
And potatoes a la lyonaise
And crisp fried chicken from the south!
Lord, if you love me, SHUT MY MOUTH!
—Victor Buono (R.I.P.)
Teaching kids to go door to door demanding handouts or risk property damage is good training for future Democrats.
Been in witchcraft and a member of a coven. Have you?
All the time. We usually cast some spells and do some sacrifices. Later we’ll grab a couple of brews and talk about football.
So you have no personal knowledge on the subject.
Oh and, Goodnight.
Sounds like the meds ran out down in CBN-land. However, it appears they’ve gotten their refills now and done a bit of website editing. http://www.cbn.com/four0four.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/spirituallife/onlinediscipleship/halloween/halloween_danger_daniels.aspx
The page now reads “We’re sorry, the page you have requested cannot be found. The web page you were attempting to view may not exist or may have moved. Please try checking the web address for typos or you can click here to try searching CBN.com for the content you are looking for. Contact CBN.com technical feedback.”
Of course, maybe the candy demons got mad at the CBNers for exposing their demonic secrets and put a curse on the website. But I’m leaning towards the meds explanation . . .
The same article, "The Danger of Celebrating Halloween," is also available at a site run by some publication called _Charisma Magazine_:
Here's a little more context from the article by Mrs. Daniels:
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.
I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.
Sounds like a Pentecostal riff on the old "poisoned Halloween candy/razor blades in the apple" stories which have been circulating since the 70s.
So that explains why I always get a toothache from Halloween candy.. it was the demons all along!
My guess is too much coffee, and too much sugar in the coffee.
