I give out Chick tracts and razor blades.

Preaching to the wrong audience, morons. OBVIOUSLY those kids weren't aborted.

*GASP* But what if they were?! Hang on, let's think this through.

Say these kids WERE aborted. Yet there were out trick or treating. On Halloween. Does that make them zombie trick or treaters? And if so, did any of them dress like Jesus? Because if they didn't, then that's a missed opportunity.

The aborted foetus gummi bears I made were a hit.  All the kids wanted one.

"It's kind of offensive to a parent. You're pretty much getting told what to talk to your kids about," he said. "The kids had just finished trick-or-treating."

You know, that activity where your kids beg people they don't know for free candy.

This will gear kids up for the future, because there's not a day that goes by when I get off the damn Foggy Bottom metro that someone isn't accosting me about the environment, abortion rights, or Lyndon LaRouche.  They should learn early on that some people are inappropriate no matter what the occasion, and those people should be ignored and avoided at all costs.

Fetus Pops...naturally flavored!?


I can see the candy/abortion connect.  Some candies are meant to be sucked on, and ...no, I don't think I'll finish this comparison.

Of *course* there's a trick-or-treat abortion story!

I know about Rule 34. Is there some rule that covers people who introduce politics into every possible situation?
 
2013-11-02 11:41:41 PM  
Perhaps the family desired toilet paper accoutrements in all their trees, and egg decorations on their brick facade.  I, personally, would have filed a report with the Department of Child Welfare the next day, indicating that a house was distributing sexually explicit material.  Then I'd tell the ACLU and the police that the house was attempting to convince children to assist in the violation of multiple Constitutional amendments, as well as a number of Supreme Court decisions.
Oh, and if they were in a neighborhod that had an HOA...well, let's just say that'd be a fun, fun meeting.

I found a Chick tract on my truck today. It was awesome. Some guy had spied on girls in the shower as a teen, totally tossed in the eternal lake of fire.

Interestingly, just like fetuses, I just toss those in the garbage.

The cards were made by a national organization called Abolish Human Abortion.

That's speciesist!
 
2013-11-03 01:02:39 AM  
Subby this is neither fun nor new. The crazy bible-thumpers have been doing this shiat for more than a couple decades now. Some won't even give candy, just the flyers.

Makes me wonder if there is someone handing out condoms and birth control with Reese's cups...

Let me know

When I briefly moved to Northern Virginia back in the early 1990s, a local church advertised a Halloween
House of Horrors that was, in fact, a graphic anti-abortion screed.

People were not happy about it.

Satanic_Hamster: How farked in the head do you have to be to think this is a good idea.


Well, to put things in perspective, there are still people out there who hand out tootsie rolls.  Anti-abortion fliers are maybe one step below that.  Maybe.
 
2013-11-03 01:21:58 AM  
I'm all for standing up for what you believe in but children don't need abortions and their parents wouldn't have children if they'd had abortions.
 
2013-11-03 01:30:24 AM  
Let me guess: the person who handed out the tracts is also the person who is against Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans rights because they don't think kids should be exposed to that?

That would be something of a delicious irony.

Good teaching lesson. Adults can be idiots. Think for yourself. Dont let other people influence you.
 
2013-11-03 01:39:40 AM  
I wish they'd handed these out when I was a kid.  It would have saved me so much trouble if I'd known that not having abortions was an option.  There were days when I did very little except have abortion after abortion, no thoughts given to the millions of lives I was destroying.  But these days, I know the ramifications of my actions, which is why I keep a jar on the computer desk.  Every sperm is sacred.

Technically, even a grown human being is still a clump of cells anyway.  That's like saying "it's not a polygon, it's a triangle!"  Subsets don't work that way.

In fairness to the Christians, this is more a conceit of the modern West's social attitudes than something that comes from the religion itself.  The old Church took the story of one of Jesus' miracles being conjuring up booze for a party significantly less... symbolically than modern asshole protestants, and brewing and distillation used to be one of the standard things monasteries would do to support themselves.  Plus, Mardi Gras is one of the few holidays that's actually wholly the church's and not adapted from something else.

Along those lines, how could anyone think that this was even remotely acceptable? I was given dog's abuse in another thread for suggesting that people who don't want to hand out sweets could buy bulk toys as an alternative. Americans, it would appear, take their trick or treating very seriously.

Eh I was pissed off at a guy in my area handing out little comic books on the opening day at the parade for the MO State Fair.

The ones he would give adults were about not being good and how god would be viewing the recorded bad events from your life when you go meet him in death. Not a big deal. The children on the other hand were given a different comic book, and whenever he gave one to a child he would say I think you will like this story... I looked at one given to my step children. Long story short - The comic book covers a story about some 9yr old girl becoming sick and she is going to die very soon. You will only be safe if you believe in God. Those that don't believe are bad and go to Hell. I believe! yadda yadda yadda Thank you God for making me happy and taking my pain away. Her parents watch as she dies and she is happy as can be.

What's even more depressing is that there are a LOT of people who see nothing wrong with this situation, at all.

Too many ideological crusaders lack empathy when it comes to stuff like this.  If folks want to hand out something other than candy on Halloween, people should consider what kids will enjoy. Pennies, fruit, unsharpened pencils, religious tracts and fast food condiment packets aren't going to cut it. At least hand out small toys or cheap, plastic mini-games. The secular side of Halloween isn't about expressing your opinions or beliefs to young trick-or-treaters. It's about helping to make their experience an enjoyable one.

Trick or treating is serious business.  As a kid I had a blast every year on Halloween, it was a holiday where it was just fun, there was no obligation or stress like Thanksgiving or Christmas.  You threw on a costume, went out with your friends and tried to hit up as many houses as you could until people ran out of candy or it got too late.  To this day I still remember a lady who gave out king sized candy bars (her house mysteriously never got egged) and a lady who gave my friend and I all of the candy she had because we ended up being the only people she saw all night (bad weather, house was out of the way).
I don't get any trick or treaters where I live now but the last time I lived somewhere that kids would go around I made damn sure I would have handfuls of candy for them because it was something that I remembered having fun with as a kid and I want the kids today to have as much fun as I had.
Any holiday that involves people going around and actually interacting with their neighbors seems like a good holiday in my book.
