It's a No-Brainer Day Ü

I've heard two mentions of a new hate crimes law, but with an old monster really close to home sprouting a new head, I've had no time to look into the particulars of Orwellian rule, preferring to scour specific, state statutes pertaining to little people, and I don't mean Lemurians or fairies.  So I'll try to choose my words carefully, because I don't wanna go to jail for purportedly hating or nuthin'.  I'll go for Jesus, but I won't go for my own, paltry words or thoughts...

What a growing love affair with things ___ (starts with an "ev" and ends with an "l") there has been the past several years: witches, Harry Potter, and vampires being the most obvious and well received examples, and this is their day to be celebrated.  I usually steer clear of even a mention of the unholy celebration days, sprinkled with unholy water, perfumed with incense, and served to the world in a glistening chalice:  "It's good.  Really.  Try it."

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  ~Romans 1:18-21

What a no-brainer day this one is, and they didn't even try to pretty it up.  Weird.

Know God.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.  ~Ephesians 5:11

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  John 3:19

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.  ~I John 1:6

I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.  ~Psalm 101:3

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.  ~Ephesians 5:1

Abstain from all appearance of evil.  ~I Thessalonians 5:22

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.  ~Deuteronomy 18:9-12

What unending love parents must have for their innocent children, that they would shuttle them to the home of a stranger, instruct them to knock on the skeleton-decorated door, and be startled by a man or woman dressed as a dead or half-mutilated person.

The saddest part is that the children get used to it, and they eventually like it.
