I was alerted to this warning by Mock, Paper, Scissors. The helpful Halloween hint comes from Daniels' article on Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network. (To be fair to CBN, the article was taken down)
"If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy—Lucifer’s!… [M]ost 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."
– Kimberly Daniels
So my question goes to Ms. Daniels: How does this candy cursing work? Is it like getting certified kosher? Do the witches damn your Snickers at the store or at the manufacturing plant? It seems it would disrupt the candy making operations at their busiest time of the year.
Geez, it used to be we just had to worry about people putting razor blades in our kids treats. That, at least, was easy to find. Witch prayers are much harder to detect on an x-ray. Do I have to take the candy to Father Merrin?
The good news is that candy must not be sinful the rest of the year.
