Every year around this time we remind you that Halloween is coming, and there’s no better expert on the meaning of that day than the world’s greatest theologian, philosopher, illustrator, communicator, and creationist — Jack Chick. If you’re not yet familiar with the Creationist Comic Books from Jack Chick, you ought to be.
Last year’s post on this topic was Have a Jack Chick Halloween. For your holiday pleasure, we are once again reminding you of Chick’s comics about Halloween. Here’s the whole list so you can enjoy them online.
Chick isn’t the only creationist concerned about Halloween. Here’s one of our old posts about the thinking (so to speak) of Answers in Genesis: Halloween: The Creationist Viewpoint. And here’s something we just found at the website of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR). It’s by Henry Morris, the now-deceased founder of ICR. His article is dated 1998, but the message is timeless: The Devil And Halloween. Here are a few excerpts:
This is the day when witches and warlocks gather to praise their leader and extend his work on Earth. Festivities are marked by unprecedented evil and blasphemy, with blood sacrifices and hedonistic practices playing prominent parts.
Accordingly, let us strive to see that his harmful influence is thwarted on this, his special day. The children of each community need protection from the evil influences boldly swarming this night. May we, ourselves, not fall prey to his dark deceptions, and especially in the lives of our children, may we focus their attention on the Light, instead.
Wise words indeed! It’s times like this that your Curmudgeon feels that he’s truly providing a public service.
