Happy post-Halloween!

Here's wishing everyone a happy post-Halloween sugar rush. We greeted the neighborhood kids with a scary bat-pumpkin carved by daughter Aimee.

And we ate plenty of that demon-blessed candy. At least that's according to someone named Kimberly Daniels, who, according to Ed Brayton at Dispatches From The Culture Wars, wrote a bat-poop looney anti-Halloween essay that was posted on the Christian Broadcasting Network's web page. The post has been removed (too nutty even for them???), but not before Ed could save us a, er, taste:
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 need some more candy...

  1. I can't say too much about this Kimberly Daniels and her, um,ideas, because when I saw the Brayton post, I just ended up laughing so hard I was crying. I think she is desperately in need of um, treatment, counseling, and maybe some pretty post-Halloween purple pills(not candy). I mean, if even Christian Broadcasting Network pulled her, she must, as my Montana cousins would likely say, be a few bricks shy of a load. . . . .
