What do you take from this...........(freaks me out)

Quote---Halloween is a MAJOR satanic ritual day. "It's a religious holiday for Satan and the Demons, with satanists performing sacrifices and withces quietly celebration with prayer circles or meals for the dead," according to a USA Today artical. It quoted Washington witch Bryan Jordan as saying, "[Christians] don't realize it, but they're celebrationg our holiday with us......WE LIKE IT"

Anton Le Vey, author of The Satanic Bible and high priest of the Church of Satan states,"Santanists consider Halloween the most important day of the year. Satanic, occult and witchcraft powers are at their highest potency level....Satan and his powers are at their best that night."

  • Why do you keep reposting? You had another that was the same and I posted 11 messages back about Halloween and you deleted it.

  • I don't think dressing up as a princess and eating chocolate is part of their ritual. So unless you are celebrating the holiday with prayer circles for the dead, I'd wouldn't get too worried about it.

  • Well....I think that every religion has it's own views and ways to celebrate each holiday. I CAN say that as a Wiccan, I do not celebrate Hallowe'en at all. I celebrate Samhain which is a celebration of the autumn season quite simply put. It is also a day that we use to remember our deceased loved ones.

    While Anton La Vey (who deemed Marilyn Manson a minister of his church) MAY believe that Hallowe'en is a "Satanic play day"...That is ONLY his opinion and NOT the opinion of Pagans and Wiccans (Witches). He speaks for HIMSELF and NOT everybody...especially NOT Pagans or Wiccans...

  • Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in).

    The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

    In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.

    To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities.

    During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other's fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

    By A.D. 43, Romans had conquered the majority of Celtic territory. In the course of the four hundred years that they ruled the Celtic lands, two festivals of Roman origin were combined with the traditional Celtic celebration of Samhain.

  • NOT satanic holiday do some research

  • Anton LaVey has corrupted just as much Wicca as he has Christianity. The name "Halloween" is a contraction of the Church feast day of All Hallowed Day (which we know as All Saints Day), which started at sundown the night before, thus becoming "All Hallowed Evening", leading to "Hallowed E'en". It is confirmed historical fact that the Roman Church commandeered the ancient pagan festivals and superimposed Christian feasts to make conversion easier and more palatable. The original holiday was a celebration of the fall equinox, named Samhain. And it was no more evil than any other earth-venerating pagan religion. It did not, and still does not, focus on evil, demonic activity, or anything else associated with the antithesis of Christianity.

  • If your celebration falls on the same day as some other religion's celebration - how does that make your own celebration evil? If your birthday falls on the same day as an "evil" religions holiday, should you not celebrate your birthday since you will be celebrating on the same day as them?
    Isn't that silly?
    Evil is in the intent. If you celebrate Halloween by trick-or-treating or going to a fun party then you are celebrating a fun holiday, not adding to someone else's evil celebrations.

    Oh - and most witches don't believe as this stupid guy does. I bet the reporter had to search high and low to find someone to say something so stupid just so she's have something "juicy" to print. Sad.
