It is a sad commentary that many Protestant churches in America have lost sight of their sacred history, and have looked upon it with...

    Holloween is abomination to God almighty! A celebration of the occult and the worship of Satan! It is from Holloween that we get all of societies ills such as drug abuse, incest, abortion, homosexuality and the bird flu epidemic. What is Holloween?

It's just like Christmas but instead of getting presents from a tree and singing carols, satanists sacrifice babies and molest little boys. They also drink blood and eat live animals! It originated in an evil country called Ireland. In the nineteenth century,...
