Something for the X-tian fundamentalcases to think about this Hallowe'en

Hallowe'en is a joyous occasion mocking evil in all it's forms.

Nothing wrong with little bratty peoplets running around saying "Trick or Treat" and receiving all those pennies for UNICEF.

And yet there are those types that want to outdo the Islamidiots in the "I'm more pious than thou" department by trying to deny the right to get cavities and contract diabetes.

Thankfully, Calgary Sun columnist Jose Rodriguez feels otherwise wants you to know this.

In the U.S. Bible Belt, some communities are asking their pint-sized pirates and princesses to do their costume-and-candy tour a day early.

Several municipalities in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are also changing Halloween to Saturday -- officially.

In Lewisporte, Nfld., council unanimously passed a motion for a Saturday Halloween, noting that many residents believe devil's night and the Lord's day should not overlap.

Charlottetown, P.E.I. city councillors also changed Halloween to Saturday.

Then, as if the devil himself appeared over their shoulders and whispered in their ears, they changed it back.

Still, some Christian groups on the East Coast are encouraging young parishioners to attend church on Halloween Sunday dressed as characters from the Bible.

All I can say is... prise the Lord and pass the candy.

Sadly... I'll be on duty on that day. Save some for me.
