The War on Halloween

One of our sacred traditions is under attack by those trying to stamp out our beliefs.
When students at Underwood Elementary School walk to their classrooms on Monday, there will be no witches, SpongeBob SquarePants, or Johnny Damons there to greet them.

No skeleton paintings or Frankenstein tattoos, either.

The school's principal said yesterday he acceded to the complaints of a handful of parents who said that because the school's traditional Halloween celebrations offended their religious beliefs, they would not send their children to school if the revelry continued this year.

Soon to be a talking point on Fox News. Or not.

I hope this does get added to the O'Lielly talking points. What will his take be? Out-of-control Christians are interfering with our pagan holidays? You're either for Halloween, or your for the terrorists?

Oh lord, this is SO ridiculous!

In other news, did you hear about the woman that hanged herself from this big tree in someone's front yard and people driving by just thought it was Halloween decorations. No one stopped to investigate for hours!

This sounds suspiciously like that Onion presidential address. Are they replacing the trcik or treating with communion wafers and grape juice?
