No More "BOO"?

While you are this Halloween weekend, you should be aware that in the backrooms of the ACLU the lawyers are hard at work to stop you from celebrating yet another religious holiday. What's that you say? Halloween is religious and will soon exist no more (that's right, R.I.P.) should the ACLU have it's way.

The term "Halloween" derives from Hallowe'en, an old contraction, still retained in Scotland and some parts of Canada, of "All Hallow's Eve," so called as it is the day before All Saints day (observed by some Christians, including Roman Catholics), which used to be called "All Hallows," derived from All Hallowed Souls. In Ireland, the name was Hallow Eve and this name is still used by some older people. Halloween was formerly also sometimes called All Saints' Eve. The holiday was a day of religious festivities in various northern European pagan traditions, until it was appropriated by Christian missionaries and given a Christian reinterpretation. In Mexico, All Saint's Day, following Halloween, is the Day of the Dead.

What a dog's life we lead, when the ACLU is involved. We'll all be sitting around with empty trick or treat baskets and using our ghost costumes for dustrags soon, if the ACLU has their way.

If you see these people BEWARE!!! (scream)

Go hang out with the other Halloween'ers at Stop the ACLU.
