Nonsensical Ramblings from Uncle Pat Robertson's site on Hallowe'en

Pat Robertson is like J. R. Ewing, you love to hate him.  Found this jewel and all I can say is that whoever wrote it is cray cray!  It would be downright disturbing if it wasn't so ludicrous.

“During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. A time-released curse is a period that has been set aside to release demonic activity and to ensnare souls in great measure … During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. 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.
I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. 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.Even the colors of Halloween (orange, brown and dark red) are dedicated. These colors are connected to the fall equinox, which is around the 20th or 21st of September each year and is sometimes called “Mabon.” During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest. They pray to the gods of the elements (air, fire, water and earth).
Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.While the lukewarm and ignorant think of these customs as “just harmless fun,” the vortexes of hell are releasing new assignments against souls. Witches take pride in laughing at the ignorance of natural men (those who ignore the spirit realm).
Decorating buildings with Halloween scenes, dressing up for parties, going door-to-door for candy,standing around bonfires and highlighting pumpkin patches are all acts rooted in entertaining familiar spirits. All these activities are demonic and have occult roots.The word “occult” means “secret.” The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
* Sex with demons
* Orgies between animals and humans
* Animal and human sacrifices
* Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
* Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
* Revel nights
* Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
* Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.”

Wait a with demons, animal and human orgies, rape and molestation of adults?!  I have definitely been going to the wrong parties!   Have any of my pagan and witch friends out there been contacted by Mars, Hershey's, or Nestle to pray over and dedicate my Hallowe'en candy (although I definitely think that something unholy comes out of the cheap chocolate candy from Big Lots, bleeeh!).

Wow! I'm aghast at the sheer volume of audacity that man has; to post such absurd propaganda on things as benign as pumpkin patches and seasonal candy! I'm from the South, and I've read a lot of the Bible....and I don't recall any of these detailed specifics in the 'Gospel of Pat'. They must be in his revised version. And it would seem he knows an awful lot about 'demonizing' things himself!

This sort of crap drives me crazy. If you don't do Hallowe'en for personal reasons, fine, that's your choice, but I can't forgive making crap up and sloppy or nonexistent research. This is in a category all its own!

Just find a Chick tract, THEY are the fun ones to roll your eyes at!

Sheesh!! What a bunch of hooey! But I'm not surprised, considering the source.....
(Hhhhmmm...wonder why I never got invites to those types of parties..... And will definitely have to watch that candy during the next couple of months....)

My personal favorite crazy Pat quote it:

The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." - 1992 Iowa fundraising letter opposing a state equal-rights amendment ("Equal Rights Initiative in Iowa Attacked", Washington Post, 23 August 1992)

I just love Pat, he's much more fun than most comedians! I personally like when he said God was going to help him bench press 2007 pounds. That's like benching my car. Pat needs to have his meds upped...

Like we say in my region, "il y a deux fils qui se sont touchés"... Something went wrong in the head of that guy, like if two wires, that were not meant to, came in contact of each other. :-)

Mr. Macabre said...

That's French for 'he's bat$#!+ crazy' isn't it? :D

PumpkinBrain said...

Yep, that's one of the polite way to say that in French.

Thanks for the laugh.... I would "smile" but just went through tooth extraction over an hour ago.... I really liked the part of the witches cursing the
The overly religious Fire Marshall of Union CO. NC hates Halloween so much so that he is using his "Position" to declare Any and All "Haunted Houses" are completely BANNED in this county..."the Worst Safety Hazards" that exists... He said that "as long as He Is the Fire Marshall... There will Never be a "haunted house in this county".....
So I guess that I do Not get to go to another Halloween haunted house before I die...this rather saddens us... Your good "fiend" ... the Doctor
