When I was a kid, we used to get fruit, candy apples or popcorn balls. If it was cold a lot of homes had coffee or hot apple cider for the parents.


We haven't done the Trick-Or-Treat thing for years. I used to save up the extra condiment packages from Chinese or pizza delivery and give them out to the older kids. The little kids usually got candy or nuts. If someone showed up with a five o'clock shadow, they got packages of soy sauce. If I had to travel a lot, it might be a bottle of shampoo, a tiny bar of soap or even a tube of toothpaste. If they balked they got the air horn hidden in the bushes.

Abortion is Murder.

This is how people act when they think that the creator of the universe has chosen them for a special mission. The most outstanding feature of the anti-abortion crowd is their almost insane egotism - they literally imagine themselves to be the focal points of Gods will. They imagine themselves to be small versions of God, that God has personally placed here to carry out His work for him (because he, in his omnipotence, is somehow incapable of doing it himself).
What a bunch of incredibly conceited egomaniacs.

People were not happy about it.

Good thinking. Full-size candy bars = obesity = less likely to get laid = fewer abortions?

Could work.

Remember that punishment device in Hitchhiker's Guide series that would show people in no uncertain terms how insignificant they were in the expanse of the universe?

We could really use one for these asshats.

Terrible Old Man: I'm calling shenanigans. This smells like a moronic political stunt for fake outrage. Sorry, but if someone were really doing this, it's not going to be hard to remember what house did it. Derp.


The fundies got an anti abortion law on the ballot there this year. Early voting just started, so yes it's shenanigans and a political stunt.

Every time I read one of these stories I facepalm.   The issue was settled over 40 years ago and a large group can't let it go.   Makes me wonder how long the anti-Healthcare reformers will be protesting and biatching about the affordable care act.

This isn't new.  Having grown up in the south, I have seen this a couple of times.  This and those stupid religious comic books telling you how you need to get saved.  Bastards who always give them out, never give out candy though, which probably is a major reason why I hate fundi-religion, even to this day.

While I am pro-life, the lengths that some will go to "promote" their cause just makes me shake my head in disappointment..

At some point, we as a society will go back to allowing kids to be kids and not props for our political statements.. Unfortunately, tomorrow would not be too  soon.
 
2013-11-03 08:30:08 AM
Being a kid who loved comics, I got a couple Chick tracts in my loot while growing up in the 80's, and thought "all right, comics!" Read them whilst eating candy, found them mildly entertaining and then tossed them out. It wasn't till my teen years that I realized that these people were douchebags and not cool comic people. So the upside is that a lot of kids likely don't get that they are being preached to and just think they are being given weird entertainment.

Must be Halloween, where the demons come out. Traditionally a holiday for political messages, unlike the socialist countries where a few days later Guy Fawkes Day/Kristal Nacht is just a celebration devoid of politics.

Caught a message from a "wrong number" call from a Americans for Prosperity Tea Party Halloween event called Obamascare. Candy for the kids, horror stories for adults. At a local mega Southern Baptist church.

Now if only homosexuals had agendas.

Handing out anti-abortion messaging to 8 year olds is about as effective as yelling at my cat for not doing the dishes.

There is a time and place to discuss your views on abortion.  Little kids are not the proper audience.  This behavior is unacceptable because they are forcing parents to have what really is a pretty heavy conversation, covering many topics (sex, human reproduction, fetal development, abortion procedures, etc.)

It is a dick move, rude, not neighborly, and unacceptable behavior from an adult.

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.


Fat girls start menstruating earlier, especially if there's no dad in the house to tell them about sex; there. there's your comparison.

Somebody needs to explain it to them though. They will need to know their options when they are being sexed up by their teachers in a couple of years.

Where I grew up, fundies didn't participate in Halloween at all because Satan. (You could point out that it's "All Hallowed's Eve," the night before All Saints Day, but that's Catholic and just as bad as Satan.)

at least your kids seeing that CD wouldn't be offended of scared by it.

i'm Christian and not a fan of abortion but these AHA are jerks.  Most Christians don't approve off the AHA methods and AHA has been known to use photos which they don't own the copyright or permissions to use for their posters/meme, they will insert their cards into product boxes in stores and The Northern VA group once posted a video where they started hounding this lady about abotion when she was simply minding her business pumping gas
