When displaced Africans participate in Halloween, it sends a message to their children that witchcraft, demonism, Satanism, and the occult are something fun, entertaining and harmless.
Many years ago, C.S. Lewis wrote that one of Satan’s most deceptive tactics is to convince people that he doesn’t exist. Apparently he has done a good job in his deception. Sadly, many people think of the devil as no more than a symbol of evil: like Santa Claus, he is just a fictional symbol. Many people today also do not think of witches as real people who practice magic, but simply as imaginary figures who represent the supernatural world and everything that is ‘spooky.’
Recognizing this pagan holiday gives the false impression that what is actually lethal is innocuous. Some children develop a fascination with the supernatural which leads them later into more sinister occult practices. It’s the spiritual equivalent of painting a loaded gun to look like a toy and giving it to child to play with.
It is the kind of celebration that encourages kids like the 16-year-old in Pearl, Mississippi who stabbed his mother to death in her sleep and then opened fire at his high school, killing two students and wounding seven. Authorities found this student along with at least six others involved in a small, avowedly satanic clique that calls itself “Kroth.”
Central to the Satanic goals is the widespread acceptance of the occult and over the last 30 or so the occult has moved into the mainstream of America INC.- in television, movies, magazines, business, and various aspects of daily life. Movies, books, magazines and encyclopedias of the supernatural have abounded. Before a Knee-grow try to defend Halloween and act as if I am rejecting what appears to be a similar theme from Africa, keep in mind that while spiritualism, the supernatural and certain esoteric practice are part of an ancient legacy, practiced and cherished as a valuable tool to up lift the people. The Supernatural practice of occultists is predicated on gaining empowerment through m meeting at witches’ covens to drink, dance, spit out curses and spells, conjure up spirits, engage in sexual orgies, induct new members, and offer up animal and human sacrifices. It is believed that Witches have become expert at covering up these sacrifices by use of cremation ovens and the use of privately owned land preserves for disposal of bodies in deeply dug graves.
American Inc alone people spend $21 million on Halloween candies yearly second only to Christmas in total sales. Halloween has always been a day that a majority of people in the United States look forward to and with projections of consumer spend in 2008 to top the $5 billion mark, it has quickly become one of the more popular holidays to celebrate. Halloween is the Number 1 season for selling humorous greeting cards. In the North America Union, some 25 million cards are sold annually.
(Peter Smith, “By the Numbers,” The Toronto Star, 2002-OCT-27.)
Halloween is the third-largest party occasion next to Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Increasingly the curriculum in many public schools is becoming a primer in occultism. Impressions, a curriculum used in many school districts instructs teachers and students in how to cast spells. One teacher’s manual reads, “Tell the children that a magician has cast a spell on some children. Have them work in pairs to write the magic spell the magician used. Have each pair write another spell to reverse the first spell. Have them chant their spells.”
European Society`s Satanic transformation
In America Inc., a federal judge forced a federal correctional facility in Jefferson County, Colorado to allow a prisoner to perform a Satanic ritual on Halloween. This case flies in the face of two upper Appeals Court cases, both of which held that Satanism is not a recognized religion and therefore the prison officials do not have to provide space and implements for the performance of a Satanic ritual. The Judge, Edward Nottingham issued a preliminary injunction allowing the ritual, even though the prisoner admits it includes a destruction ritual, in which he visualizes the death of his enemies.
The Military Recognizes Halloween
A U.S. Air Force physical therapist who says she has been a practicing witch for four years won permission to take Halloween and seven other days off as religious holidays. A spokesman at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio said regulations require that Patricia Hutchins…be accorded the same freedom to express her religious beliefs as any other religious believer.
The Prison System Recognizes Halloween
The Maine State Prison allowed members of a witch coven (the Coven of Dawn) to hold a two-hour service on the feast day they call Samhain (Halloween), after the Druidic festival of year’s end. This is our time to give praise to our lord and lady for the bountiful harvest, said the founder of the goddess-oriented coven. He said that 75 inmates have been initiated into the religion since its start in 1981.
Witches and Satanists love Halloween. They get a lot of media coverage around that time of year. It’s good P.R. (public relations) for them because the coverage, as a rule, portrays them in a favorable light. In addition, Halloween generates interest in “the craft” and is good for recruitment purposes.
As Craig Hawkins put it: “…With increasing vigor, witchcraft is coming out of the broom closet. Many witches are actively seeking public understanding and acceptance.”
Despite the public relations campaign to “sell” the public on the “virtues” of witchcraft, modern day witches and satanists still worship demon gods and goddesses, cast spells, practice bizarre and immoral sexual rituals (which unfortunately is often a mainstay in today’s sexually liberated society), and certain individuals and groups offer animal and human sacrifices.
It is reported there are some 6000 witches, and approximately 10 million people are involved in the occult. However, it is very difficult to establish how many actually participate. These individuals are involved in a wide variety of activities from simply casting spells to human sacrifice. The news wires carry story after story about young children being kidnapped, only to be found later as victims of some bizarre ritualistic crime.
As satantic involvement among our youth increases, we begin to see the primary goal of such activity. It has become clear that the primary goal is to alter an individual’s values and turn him against himself, his beliefs, family, God and society.
Young satanists believe the strong will rule with Satan. Once an individual becomes involved, they often make a pact with Satan. They commit themselves to a future date when they will take their own lives by suicide. They believe if they submit themselves to Satan in death, they will come back in another life as a stronger being and rule with him forever. According to recent statistics, fourteen young people a day take their own lives.
Recently, a California skateboard manufacturer used a package enclosure similar in appearance to a gospel tract to encourage purchasers to sell their souls to the devil.
The brochure titled, “Let’s Make a Deal” has a smiley-faced devil who explains to Flame Boy what happened in heaven after he was banished:
“First off, they set up a bunch of dumb rules, and then they imposed a really strict dress code. I’ll wager that people must be quite bored up there, but hey, that’s what they get for being good.” He contrasts this with, “Flame Boy, even a dimwit like you can see that hell is by far the best place to retire. Just look at all the fun to be had.”
Children are asked to sign and return a contract, by which they give possession of their souls to the devil for eternity.
Part of the popularity of Halloween is the parties, a night to let loose and get noticed by the rest of your friends, family and completely random strangers, especially for the 18-35 year old demographic where it is by far the most popular. This is normally done through the ritual of creating an awesomely over-the-top, scary, weird, awkward, sexy or hilarious Halloween costume that many of the holiday lovers spend quite a bit of time working on. Over the years the people who create these costumes as well as the costumes themselves seem to all fall into a particular stereotype depending on what kind of costume they decide to wear out on Halloween night.
This is probably one of the most well-known advantages of Halloween for both the men and women who decide to celebrate – the ability to be a complete skank ho for the night and get away with it. For the women, no matter if normally innocent or completely slutty, get the ability to dress up in costumes as sexually provocative as they possibly can, all in the name of Halloween, and totally get away with it. Whether they’re a naughty nurse, a kinky French maid or some type of normal costume that they’ve completely slutted up in, it’s their time to engage in a bacchanalian activity with backlash from the general public. In fact in Toronto there is a phenomena called the Zombie walk, yet all the females I have seen where as sexed up as a can be with fake blood and whatnot.
With all of the women running around in practically nothing, it is obviously a bonus for the lecherous amongst the males.
When Michael Jackson came out with Thriller it gave the closeted Afro-peons to come out of their `white closet`, feeling free to practice a more hardcore dress up for Halloween, than what most could have done before. When my five year old son asked if we celebrate Halloween, I patiently explain that it is not our tradition so we don`t do that. He is already disliking the emphasis on ghoulishness and demons and I never desude him from feeling that way. If more knee-grows practice this simple vigilance and attentiveness, they will begin the journey from knee-grow to African and stop supporting the mental genocide of our children and people for the enjoyment and perpetuation of European culture.
