Today in Los Altos, California, a public school held a vote on whether
to ignore the ignorance, superstition, hatred, and fear of the Nazi
Religious Reich, and to continue with their Holloween tradition. It
seems that every year at this time the utterly ignorant try to force
their occultism upon their intellectual betters around the country.
In a two-minute cover by KTLA, Los Angeles, Channel 5, at 20:20 this
evening, students ranging from ages 7 to 11 stepped up to the microphone
and offered 10 second explanations on why the holiday should be
"This is a time when families can get together,
go out, and have fun," a young girl dressed
as a fairy or something said.
"You guys got to have trick-or-treat when you
were kids and it's not right that you want to
stop us from having our turn," another young
girl dressed like a princess or something said. }:-}
"You shouldn't be teaching our children to fear
[having honest fun - paraphrase from faulty memory]
and teaching them that their immortal souls are in
danger" said one well-dressed parent.
KTLA commentator stated that after so many family and students so
overwhelmingly denounced the Religious Reich's attempt to turn the
festive holiday into superstitious fear, the Religious Reich had "guts"
to step up to the microphone. KTLA showed one bitter and angry fundi
spitting on the microphone ranting about Holloween being a "religious
holiday" or some such stupidity. If that were true, one wonders
whether the cultist would produce an equal amount of spit denouncing
Christmass and Easter activities in the public schools.
Sadly KTLA didn't give numbers. It looked like there were about 300
students with their families (the room was packed, standing room was
even taken up) but only two or three fundies trying to push their
religious agenda upon the rest of the community seemed present...
and Orange County is the fundy capital of the United States. These
nuts appeared to have attacked the school without the sanction or
conspiracy of the rest of fundydom otherwise I would expect to have
seen a larger number of fundies trying to defend their fascism.
Thank Einstein that logic, sanity, rationality, and education still
win out in the United States. All it takes is a focused defense
against these Nazis and the good guys and gals seem to win every time.
