More on Halloween – Still not nice, apparently!

From the BBC’s News website, a lengthy article on Halloween

Surprisingly sensible, though, as evidenced by this extract:

“There is a tendency to paranoia among some Christians,” explains Professor Christopher Partridge of University College Chester. “They have a dualistic worldview – if something is not of God then it’s of Satan. And Halloween is invested with a lot of negative imagery for Christians – witches and demons etcetera. It just looks evil.”

There’s an intelligent follow-up post, too: “Children don’t associate Halloween with the occult any more than they associate Christmas with the birth of Jesus.”
