. 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.

When candy gorged kids heads are spinning, I always thought it was just too much sugar. Now I understand. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing people he didn't invent M&Ms.
"Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist."
That gives me hope for Scooby Doo and the Harlem Globetrotters.
I missed the sarcasm tag.

Is it just me or does Kimberly Daniels have a little too much spare time on her hands?
I will say this again. The Holy Spirit does not make you nuts! With friends like Robertson who needs enemies?
It’s one thing to oppose Halloween on principle that can be backed up but claiming curses and demonic influence can be delivered via candy has no biblical support.
Halloween is a big night for witches. Covens DO meet and they DO “pray” and have ceremonies leading up to Halloween.
18"I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven
I don't "celebrate" Halloween.
Don’t bother trying to reason with these people. It’s hopeless.
The story is still not there even with your link. Did you actually read it? Not that PR is beyond such, but as it looks you posted that this came from CBN and the link goes to au.org then there’s no story to back it up... so it looks a little odd.
Yes. Not kidding.
Is it just me or does Kimberly Daniels have a little too much spare time on her hands? ............................... What kind of medicine does her doctor prescribe? This is totally asinine. Oh, I get it , its satire, right? Rhet.
Now I know why I have been feeling a little whacky lately. I admit I broke into the Halloween candy stash. Two Reese’s and two Almond Joy no-fun-size candy bars and I’m ready to go howl at the sorta 2/3rd’s moon. That and my son’s new $5,600 braces bill have me howling. Awwwhoooo!
Agreed... see verses concerning meat sacrificed to idols. According to scriptures, if I ask God’s blessing on what I eat it doesn’t matter what was done to it before.
It borderlines on superstition to think food can be “cursed”.
But, the demonic candy is the best kind!!!
Surely she doesn't think demons are so dense.
A clear case of the soft bigotry of low expectations.
