Natalie stumbled across this website by a conservative Christian group out to reclaim Halloween from the Forces of EvilTM and proceeds to put forth a rant that makes my eyes mist up with pride!
One way to let your fellow Christians know that you are offering a Christ-friendly Halloween experience by displaying a Jesus-o-lantern (a hollowed pumpkin carved with a cross). Not only will your neighbors see it, but any Christians visiting your neighborhood with their kids on Halloween will know that your house is a safe one to let their children go to.
Yep – there’s nothing quite like a flaming vegetable with its’ flesh hacked out in the shape of the vehicle of Christ’s demise to scream, “Christians are welcome here!!!”
The issue here isn’t the fact that he’s just ponied up to the fact that, yes, there are some mighty fine Christians who let their kids trick-or-treat. The thing that caught my eye was the caption under the cross-carved pumpkin – “Share your faith with carved vegetables!” I think that’s just good livin’ any time of the year, don’t you?
Oh man my sides still hurt from laughing on this one! Scathing AND funny I’m left with nothing to add ‘cause she already says everything I would have and then some.
