Tags: Hallowe'en, the Vatican
You know, dear readers, that lately I have been backsliding on my long-term commitment not to pay attention to the Vatican. It’s the road to distruction, thinking about what these guys are up to. There’s no end to it. If you think much about it, you’ll go berserk.
But I just have to tell you about this one more thing. Then I’ll get back on the wagon (spoken like a true addict!). A blog linked to the Baltimore Sun, “In Good Faith,” reports that the guys in Rome have now condemned Hallowe’en as evil. So help me. They say it’s a” pagan celebration of ‘terror, fear and death,’ and warn parents against “allowing children to dress up as ghosts and ghouls.”
Myself, I am terrifically concerned about the war in Afghanistan. About global warming obliterating entire island and coastline cultures. About Obama selling out to the prinicipaties and powers. But the kids coming looking for candy in a few hours? Not much.
