The Evil, the Scary, wooooooo, Attie Awards.

November 4, 2009

attie_1x600And here is the belated Halloween edition of the Attie Awards. It’s demonically delicious.

So, the people at CBN decided to try and create another Halloween Panic. So, Kimberly Daniels, a guest writer, decided to fan the flames of the lack of critical thought, when she wrote about that witches have cursed Halloween candy. You can’t find the original article, as it’s been taken of the website.

Let’ s list some of the more (cough) interesting statements in this article (and I’m not making these up):

For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.

Look, it’s not that I don’t believe in the devil or the Supernatural. I do. It’s articles like these, however, that make everyone who believes in another world as raving crazy people. Time Released curses? I was wondering why my son hit my other son the other over a stupid toy. Oh wait, that has happend before Halloween. Crap. I thought I could blame the devil for my kids bad behavior.

I guess no one talk Ms. Daniels that fear of the devil leads to devil worship. And, her article is full of fear. Fear of the devil. Fear of witches. Fear. Fear. Fear.

Pssst, perfect love casts out all fear.

To end, let me quote Senior Lewis, “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or a magcian with the same delight.”

St. Thomas, release the hounds for some tasty fear candy.

    I was just talking about his a week or two ago as well. To effective curse all the Halloween candy, Hershey’s and other candy companies would need to employ witches to curse them. I don’t see it being financially worthwhile to pick up a short job that would only last a few months at most to curse the candy, so Hershey’s would have a hard time getting witches during that. They could entice some to just come work for them permanently, and that would leave the candy open for year-round cursing. Suddenly, all your candy is cursed, including the Easter candy. Witches wouldn’t bother cursing anything like celery or brussel sprouts. We know from books that witches curse apples too. I think if I keep working at it, I can find a way that anything that tastes any good could be a cursed food, so all the Christians are doomed anyway if they ever eat.

    Is Ms. Daniels by any chance anorexic?

    Anyone else also pictures a “Modern Times”-esque scene where witches sit in production lines cursing candy as it passes by?
    Well, it was often said that the industrial revolution was a work of the devil 😉

    My skeptical shield with atheist attachment protects me from all forms of witchcraft, ghosts and demons. Unfortunately they also stop homeopathic medicines from working for some reason.

    @ Ms. Crazy Pants, and slightly off topic:

    All the AD&D books I purchased as a teenager were prayed over and blessed with holy water, so that us kids would not become corrupted by the evil game. I did not learn this until some time later, but it was still weird.
