    Vatican warns parents that Halloween is 'anti-Christian' -

    The Vatican is warning parents not to let their kids dress up as ghosts and goblins this weekend for Halloween, calling it a pagan celebration of "terror, fear and death," Britain's Daily Telegraph reports in a dispatch from Rome.

    The newspaper's Rome correspondent, Nick Squires, notes that the Roman Catholic Church has become alarmed in recent years as the traditional U.S. celebration spreads to other countries, particularly Britain and Italy.

    The Vatican issued its warning through its official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, in an article headlined "Halloween's Dangerous Messages."

    It quotes a liturgical expert, Joan Maria Canals as saying, "Halloween has an undercurrent of occultism and is absolutely anti-Christian."

    I don't see how its "anti-Christian". Its not celebrating anything, its just a night to dress the kids up in constumes and to go trick-or-treating.

    The Vatican is not telling parents to not let your children go trick-o-treating but rather to those Catholic's a reminder that dressing up as undead type costumes are not in line with the Catholic teaching.

    It is the duty of the Church to guide the followers of the faith. If you don't like it then don't listen for the message wasn't meant for you anyway.

    They are just upset because their All Saints day never grew as big as the All Hallows Eve that they tried to steal. Like they did Yule and Ostara.

    Exactly. Why the hell this is of any interest to anyone who is not Catholic is beyond me.... It is, however, fairly typical of today's society that everyone thinks they are entitled to whine about shit that does not concern them.

    If you're Catholic, great. if you're not, mind your own fucking business.

    This quote alone when one applies common sense that the message is they can trick-o-treating. T

    Trick or treating is basically extortion.
