More Jesus Halloween Candy Please

Halloween Scripture Candy
I don't remember anything like this when I was a child trick-or-treating on Halloween. The few fundamentalist Christians in the neighborhood were far too afraid of Halloween to consider participating in it. I think some really thought their imaginary souls were in danger from demons who could possess them if they acknowledged Halloween. They simply turned off their porch lights, and we knew not to bother them.

The sort of Halloween candy dripping with Jesus pictured above seems like an improvement. As silly as it is for Christians to inject their Jesus into everything, at least those who hand out candy like this are participating in a fun holiday (by attempting to drain it of fun). Maybe atheists should get in on the act and use Halloween to promote reality. Then again, there are probably better occasions for that sort of thing (e.g., Easter, Christmas). Besides, I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of Halloween.
