according to Kimberly Daniels on Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network website:
“[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches,” Daniels wrote. “I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.”

Hell House was first opened in October of 1991 and is a creative alternative to the traditional haunted house. It is a dramatization of real life situations. Each year over 10,000 people walk through its doors with an ambiguous expectation. With Hell House now entering its 19th year, we attempt to keep that ambiguity going by offering new, fresh, in-your-face scenes and ideas. This year there are 7 scenes, with the walk-through taking an estimated 45 minutes (not including waiting in line). A “demon” or “death monitor” will guide you through the maze-like walk-through. Each scene will give you a look into the real life issues that we deal with everyday. Hell house is not meant for children under the age of 13. There are guns, blood, violence, intense scenes, and disturbing images.

"A powerful, educational video" -- Pat Robertson
What has Brother Pat raving with such glee? It's "Hard Truth," the latest propaganda video from American Portrait Films. Yes, the fine folks who brought you "Unholy Hollywood" and "The Silent Scream" have teamed up with the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform to present the ultimate anti-abortion visual aid.
No more pussyfooting with tearful testimonies and murky images from an ultrasound screen. These guys kick out the jams in a quick, gut-wrenching rollercoaster ride of rubber-glove cinematography.
It actually begins with a bit of dignity as a handsome man warns us that the teaching tool we are about to experience is for our own good. Next we hear a plaintive Contemporary Christian ballad about God's judgement coming to America and see some NOVA "Miracle of Life" footage of fetuses peacefully sucking their thumbs in the womb.
But you'll barely have your seatbelts on in time for the "money shot." The forceps emerge with gouts of blood from a woman's birth canal, then the good doctor's instrument pauses to dangle a severed head before the camera. (This fellow must have required a hefty bribe to allow his grisly task to be filmed, because the 9.5 minute "Hard Truth" video costs a whopping 15 dollars. That works out to $1.58 every gore-packed minute, neighbors. But you can't say they don't deliver the goods.)
The rest of this ghoulish post-partum peepshow surveys the aftermath of such procedures. Moved by their deep respect for the sanctity of human life, the filmmakers reverently wave gory little limbs at the camera and cause tiny little eyeballs to fall from their sockets on cue. It appears that they rely heavily on 3rd trimester carnage and stillbirths, but to argue that the deck is stacked would drag me into their stupid realm of debate.
The video comes with a priceless little User's Guide, which warns that if it is not properly introduced to the viewer "the results ... can be problematic." The producers wisely advise us to "encourage reluctant viewers to simply avert their gaze." Especially helpful is "God's Purpose for Hard Truth" section, which uses typically bloody Old Testament passage to set up a Biblical precedent for such lurid shock tactics. It's interesting to note that no women speak in this video, and the host never even says the word "woman" in his introduction. Nevertheless, whatever your position on this issue, you'll have to agree with the President of the Pro-Life Action League when he said "Hard Truth" is "so horrible that it's wonderful."

Although some people believe that their pets will be raptured up to heaven with them, why take the chance? And it's one less thing to worry about as you're getting ready for the Rapture:
You've committed your life to Jesus. You know you're saved. But when the Rapture comes what's to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.
We are a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Each
Eternal Earth-Bound Pet representative is a confirmed atheist, and as such will still be here on Earth after you've received your reward. Our network of animal activists are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus.
We are currently active in 22 states. Our representatives have been screened to ensure that they are atheists, animal lovers, are moral / ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue your pet and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for your pet's natural life.
thanks to Brother T Tex for the link

be sure to pick up some DVDs by Pastor Kenneth Okonkwo, particularly the 666 series.
Fetishizing of the End Times as a spectacular gore-fest visited upon on the unbelievers is nothing new. But the sheer number of people gleefully enjoying the spectacle of their own blackest magical thinking made manifest by mass media is new. Or at least the media aspect is new. It reinforces the major appeal of these beliefs, the appeal being (to restate the obvious) that they get to pass judgment on everyone who disagrees with them, and then watch God kick the living snot out of them. It doesn’t get any better than that.
All my life I have seen these people and there are no more or less of them proportionately than before. It is simply that, A) they have built their own massive media, and B) educated middle class folks are noticing them now because they vote and a major political party is willing to violate the church-state boundary to get their votes. They have always been out here and always in about the same percentages. Think about that. It took me a while to accept it too. But George W. Bush learned the significance of this while campaigning for his daddy back when he was supposed to be at his National Guard meetings. Part of his job was to bring in the fundie Christian vote for Poppy. Come George’s turn to play poker for the presidency in that quadrennial rich man’s game we call elections, Sparky knew what cards to play. The effete John Kerry had not a clue. Still doesn’t. Neither did you. Right? Don’t feel bad. I even knew the great unwashed tribes of the faithful were out here, wrote spooky and panicked articles about it before the elections and still underestimated the capability of the death obsessed Christian right.

I remember Jed & Cindy quite fondly because they were always so entertaining when they came to Oberlin College. Oberlin is a very liberal place (or was a few years ago, anyway), and virtually nobody took them seriously. Instead, everyone seemed to view B.J. & S.C. as a sort of vaudeville act. We'd all chant along with him when he said "LAAAAKES...OOOF...FI-YER!!!!" B.J. always seemed pretty disappointed in us, because Oberlin was actually founded as a missionary college, way back when.... We usually found it pretty easy to throw Brother Jed off-stride, usually by having two lesbians leap on each other and start making out, right there in the front row.My most vivid memory is that of a contingent from Harkness (a vegetarian CO-OP) who came out and writhed naked in a circle around Sister Cindy.
