Now I have your attention: Tell me it isn’t so. Goblin infused M & Ms? The devil lurking inside my KitKat? A demonic trinity praying over unsuspecting Halloween revelers? Vampire gummy bears? Witches drinking blood and howling at the moon (I BEG your pardon!)? Curses sent to the innocents through tricks and treats? Orange and brown are color codes for demons? Released time curses? I must have missed all the action last weekend.
We missed the warning from CBN. Barry Lynn made a rare appearance on TV to warn us of some evangelical rantings about buying Halloween candy because it had spells cast over it. Christians were also warned about having sex with demons around Halloween. Now that was a week ago. Is it safe yet? 🙄
The Reverend Barry Lynn is one of my favorite people. He is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and has been the executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. AU has been a leader since 1947 for preserving and protecting religious freedom.
Their mission statement:
Americans United (AU) is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans.
Barry Lynn makes rare appearances. I can’t imagine that this warning related to Pat Robertson was just coincidental timing. Perhaps it was a warning about what comes out of Pat Robertson’s garrisons.
People are free to believe what they wish. However, we need to be very careful their their beliefs don’t become policy and laws that we all have to live under.
