And what do these Bible verses have to do with Pat Robertson?

Pat Robertson is an idiot. I don't give a damn what he says about Halloween or anything else, I don't pay any attention to him.

My church called it a "Harvest Festival", but we all know it's Halloween. It's treated as just a big costume party!

This is news? He's been spewing this 'Halloween is evil' crap for over 20 years. He's the cause of most of those 'Harvest Festivals' where kids can only dress as a Bible character.

I never liked these people who spew out "Halloween is the Devil" crap....cause I find it to be a crock of

They keep forgetting that certian cultures celebrate their dead on this day (I think like someone said earlier).

I don't like Halloween either.

But not for the same reasons as Robertson. I just find it really annoying.

I think the modern secular celebration of Halloween passes this test. Anyone who seriously thinks that this is a "Satanic holiday" really needs to open their eyes and get a grip on reality.

I was actually thinking about this while my wife and I were taking our boys around the neighborhood. The truth is it's one of the holidays we have here that celebrates community and children. Think about it -- you go door to door to the homes of complete strangers and they give you candy. We heard from nearly everyone "Have a nice night," "Enjoy the evening," "Your kids are so cute," etc. It's a chance to meet your neighbors and realize how nice of a community you live in. Doesn't sound satanic to me.

This is nothing new to me.

Without getting too deep into the issues of my childhood, I grew up not celebrating Halloween. It was forbidden by the church my parents belonged to.

Two weeks after my 18th birthday (which is when the holiday fell) I put on a Halloween costume and went trick-or-treating for the very first time.

People who are against Halloween say it is "unchristian" because it was once a pagan festival.

I wonder how the feel about Christmas falling on December 25th?

Pat Robertson is full of crap because I'm a Christian and we had a Fall Festival (Halloween Party) at my church where we dressed up and had a great time.

There was a trick or treating deal in the parking lot, games in the classrooms, cookie decorating and hay rides.

I don't care for Halloween.

And there are lots of reasons that I dislike it that have nothing to do with Pat Robertson.

But. . .I don't feel like getting into it.
