The religious right has long railed against Halloween, condemning its pagan roots and claiming it promotes witchcraft and the occult. This year some groups are embracing the day as a time to reach kids with a pro-life and Christian message, while others use the day to burn "wicked" books and CDs. And one writer for Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network warns parents that witches curse Halloween candy.

"[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches," wrote CBN's Kimberly Daniels. "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."

Daniels continued, "Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. 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."

The Jehovah's Witnesses' magazine The Watchtower had an article years ago called something like "What's wrong with Halloween?"  The gist of it was that Halloween is bad because it's evil and it's evil because it's bad.

Oh damn, now I have to do a ritual over all of these small boxes of smarties and mars bars to get rid of the wretched curses.

Oh hey, I just thought of a potential internet mail-order money maker,  "Guarenteed curse free candy".   Anyone know how many people watch or listen to this network?
