Undercurrent of occultism mars Halloween celebration
October 24, 2010

As Halloween approaches I feel it important to remind parents and children that the festival has an undercurrent of occultism and is absolutely anti-Christian.

The feast of Halloween was once the vigil feast of All Saints' Day, celebrated Nov. 1. It was the beginning of a day in which we rejoice in the work of God seen in his saints and cause of great inspiration and joy to the world.

Sadly, it has become dangerously paganized and heavily commercialized. Parents should be aware of this and try to direct the meaning of the feast toward wholesomeness and beauty rather than terror, fear and death. Wearing skeleton suits, dressing up as vampires, witches or goblins or slapping on fake blood is not far removed from communing with the devil.

As we approach Halloween this year let us try to provide a wholesome, non-pagan alternative celebration. Parents can, for example, dress up their children as popular saints instead of witches and devils. They can carve smiling faces, rather than menacing faces, into pumpkins. They can light a candle or display publicly another kind of light alongside, perhaps, an image of Christ, showing people we have hope in someone other than ourselves.

Looks like the Victory Chapel strikes again. Just can't be quiet and want to screw up the secular American Halloween with a House of Unholy Horror. I wonder how comfortable they are with Mexico's Día de los Muertos? The celebration occurs on November 2 in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2). Or Dia de Finados, a public holiday that many Brazilians celebrate by visiting cemeteries and churches.
Probably "too Catholic" for the Funless Bunch or too pagan.

Boo!
