So-Stupid-It’s-Scary Thing of the Week

Posted By on Fri, Oct 30, 2009 at 11:10 AM

This week, in honor of Halloween, we’re presenting a Stupid Thing of the Week that’s so stupid, it’s scary. At first, we were going to give the coveted award to two genius burglars in Iowa who wore “masks” that consisted of designs they drew on their faces with a black, permanent Magic Marker.

In the end, though, even those two dolts weren’t stupid enough to outdo one Kimberly Daniels, a Jacksonville, Fla., pastor, conference speaker, and, according to her web site,  “a recognized prophetic voice.”  Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network posted a blog by Daniels that warns Christians against celebrating Halloween because the holiday is pure evil and . . . we’re not kidding . . . demons are at work on your candy! "During this period, demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities,” says Daniels. “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."

You heard it hear first, ladies and gentlemen: Halloween candy has been dedicated and prayed over by witches. And that’s not all! "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." Jeez, those demons kill all the fun. The scariest thing? In 21st century America, there are people who really believe in this brand of insanity.
