controversy

Another post I was supposed to share was my most controversial post. I'm not sure how controversial this was but I'm sure it could offend someone (oh, and I tried to embed properly but youtube was most uncooperative, or maybe it was the video):

You would think that by this time human beings would have progressed beyond such supersticious mumbo jumbo. But apparently there are those who still believe the devil can get to you and your children through...you guessed it, halloween candy.

It's almost laughable, except that these people actually believe that demons have that kind of power. Now mind you, I'm not saying that demons don't exist. They might. They might not. But if they do exist and they can get into a piece of candy then why wouldn't they just save themselves the trouble and pop into a real live person right off? I mean, why waste time with the candy?

  1. No matter how much high tech gadgetry our civilization acquires, human beings remain the same. Take Pat Robertson and that lady in the Winnebago and pop them into the Dark Ages and they'd fit right in.

  2. Plus, candy is really easy to destroy. You would think they would select a safer vessel.

    Although, I have to say: I now really want to write a story about a demon that lives in a Snickers Bar.

  4. I know down here in Mexico people are very superstitious. I had a friend, when she was pregnant ask me how I felt when I left the hospital after having my son, did I cover myself from head to toe so I wouldn't catch an infection? What!? Also, a lot of women won't take their child out of the house until it's two months old.

  6. Matt, excellent point!

    Old Kitty, lol

    Clarissa, sometimes it's amazing how ignorant people are.

    Sheri, that's Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange - a very controversial film at the time, might be on the list of banned books, too.

    I have an award for you Marcy...

  8. That is the weirdest thing I've ever heard. Witches prayed over candy and it's now possessed? Superstitions are odd-- and fascinating. :)

  9. And I thought I'd heard it all :-)
    I'm with Sheri--that picture is gross!

  10. There are demons in candy!! And if you eat enough of it the demons grab onto your hips and never let go. The only way to get rid of them is to exorcise them away.

    Okay, go ahead and groan. I don't care. :P

  12. Matthew's comment made me laugh!
    All I can say is I'm a Christian, so I know I have power over those suckers. Oh, and I have a Ninja sword as well. They come near my candy they are dead!

  13. I've got to say, the candy theory is a new one for me. But I've always wondered...

  14. Yeah, good question. Of all things . . . why bother with candy?

  15. Ya just can't fix stupid. It's hard to believe people are still that woefully ignorant.
