    Polish Catholic Church in Halloween warning

    BBC News - Polish Catholic Church in Halloween warning


    One archbishop said the 31 October celebrations were promoting paganism to young people.

    Archbishop Andrzej Dziega warned that Halloween was behind a "culture of death".

    "This kind of fun, tempting children like candy, also poses the real possibility of great spiritual damage, even destroying spiritual life," the archbishop of Szczecin-Kamien wrote in a letter to be read out at Sunday sermons, according to the Polish Press Agency.

    He wrote that "irresponsible and anti-Christian fun" introduced young people to a "world of darkness, including devils, vampires and demons" in the name of "fun".

    Catholic Church tries again to run the world, but fails.

    Halloween is lilkely to have Christian origins.

    Sadly, nothing these people can do to control their believers in the name of their particular invisible man really surprises me any more.

    If I believed in witchcraft, vampires, werewolves and the like, I'd probably be very concerned as well. But I don't have to be superstitious any more because I have a great good luck charm.
    I may be wrong.

    There are many who believe that is precisely what Catholicism is. Which would certainly mean some delicious irony.

    Once you believe in magic, you have to be afraid of bad magic.

    Dressing up in a costume, carving pumpkins, getting candy and watching scary movies are tempting young people to spiritual destruction?


    I don't really see it. It's not like the kids take Halloween seriously, they just want candy and fun.


    If he wants to worry about something destroying them spiritually, he might find better and more important targets, like porn and thug culture.

    I hear you, Goshin.

    The RCC, though, has become ultra paranoid in their huge losses with the laity, and have resorted to a 'must control everything' mentality.

    Sadly, it is no different than the attempted control executed by dictators upon their constituents.
    In addition, the RCC tells their laity that they are the only source of information, direction, and control in order to maintain the facade.

    They abhor common sense and knowledge, as these attributes result in the education of Catholics, and show the RCC to be a self-feeding monster who has completely forgotten it's roots in Jesus Christ.
