Harvey: Halloweens’ ‘demonic’ underpinnings explain why it’s a ‘huge celebration in the LGBT world’

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Mission America’s Linda Harvey is warning listeners against participating in Halloween festivities, and naturally uses Halloween to criticize the LGBT community. She explains that Halloween’s purportedly Satanic origins explain why it is a “huge celebration in the LGBT world, especially for the gender-confused folks.”

Harvey explains that Halloween is an “extremely useful tool” for “Satan and his minions,” and its popularity is a sign of “spiritual deception on a grand scale.” She said that participating in Halloween festivities is “enter[ing] Satan’s territory” and “real contact with real demons is quite possible.”

Last year, Harvey said celebrating Halloween represents unfaithfulness to Jesus.

Christians don’t need to cower in fear of the demonic realm and all its mischief, nor be overly pre-occupied, but neither are we to mock and scoff and cavalierly enter Satan’s territory dismissing the danger. We are especially not to enable our children to do so. Another reason for skipping Halloween is its growing influence. It’s now the second most popular American celebration right behind Christmas, what’s driving its magnetism? Spiritual deception on a grand scale may be at work and such trends call for heightened Christian discernment.

We all can see it’s a huge celebration in the LGBT world, especially for the gender-confused folks. This illustrates some of the problem. The core of Halloween is glittering artificiality, you can pretend to be someone you aren’t’ for a night, you can flirt with danger, you can divine a different destiny, but it is all void of the presence of or will of God. It’s a seduction that says, ‘don’t be afraid, do whatever you want, there’s nothing to fear,’ it’s one of Satan’s oldest tricks.

Costume parties are fun but these costumes may even disguise our very souls. Most Christians with a sincere faith acknowledge that there is a demonic realm and that Satan and his minions are at work in the world to deceive humans, so why wouldn’t Halloween provide an extremely useful too.

Mixed in with the fun and games are frightening and disturbing experiences that may leave some children with nightmares. Then there is the flirtation with occult practices that are forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and elsewhere, Christians aren’t supposed to be consulting fortune tellers, Ouija boards or palm readers about our future but all are frequently a part of Halloween festivities.

‘But it’s just for fun,’ parents will say, ‘God understands my children are not serious.’ Really? Do your kids know how risky these practices are and that real contact with real demons is quite possible. Satan doesn’t care about our intentions; he will take any willing participant.

  12. Another Christian Extremest who will make anything up as she goes along to help her spread hatred. Halloween or otherwise know as All Hollow’s Eve is a day of happy times before All Hallow’s day the day that we pray for the soles of people who have passed. We pray that their sins are forgiven and let to pass in to heaven. Extremest always seems to be the one who get the micro phone and uses it to spread lies and hatred.

  17. This woman posts things on a site. I’ve seen some pretty sick and wrong things on intolerant sites, but this is by far the worst, most disgusting site I’ve ever seen. There are fliers to educate children about ‘why gay is bad’ and instructions for parents on how to isolate their children from homosexual friends.

  18. Same reason why children around the world love it. I guess all children should be burned at the stake by her demonic definition.

  19. So Sorry, Satan is a Christian invention used to bludgeon other religions and generally show what kind of hateful pricks people like Harvey actually are.

  24. Idiotic!

    Posted on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 2:46pm
  25. Nah, she’s just a bigot. She needs to work harder for a compliment like “cunt”…it implies she actually supports her fellow women. As for the war on everything…people bonded against an enemy, imaginary or otherwise, make a very effective, if blunt, weapon to be used at the controllers’ discretion. Pit “your people” against “them”, and suddenly you have a seething mass, more or less marching lockstep, that will say/or do just about anything as long as it backs their common “cause”, as long as it’s directed at their common “enemy”.

    Or, as MIB put it, “A person is smart; people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it”.
