Do fundies believe in Halloween?

I know it's one of those little things, but I was very surprised that the younger Palin kids got to go trick or treating (in Pennsylvania.)

Down here in Texas, there's a whole fundie movement against Halloween (because it's seen as Satanic.)

Maybe that's why I couldn't find a picture. I really tried.


  • I live in Texas also (Houston). It's amazing the way the religous nuts can take a simple holiday for kids and attempt to turn it into something negative. I'm not suprised though. This is the same state in which 23% of the voters believe Obama is a muslim (according to the Houston Chronicle). Sometimes I'm embarassed to let people know I lve here.

  • Two things. It's a subset of fundies, the purest of the pure.

    Also, there are some serious methodology issues with that poll. It's Zogby, it's internet, it wasn't properly sampled.....

    But I have run into one or two here in Houston.

  • Not sure this link will work but there is video of the interview available on the transcript page that shows a short clip of them trick or treating.

  • No, the link doesn't take you to the vid, but the link to it is on the right sidebar.

  • It's Okay. Not really worth fighting over.

  • dogs bark at cars, the moon, invisible squirrels. we are not surprised. while there may be a study underway covering this phenomenon, I wouldn't suspect it to make a rousing read.

    if religious wingnuts contrive any matter of nonsense rules for themselves, I am not surprised. in fact, if someone were to write a study on that, I suspect it, too, would fail to be an interesting read.
