I thought Halloween was SUPPOSED to be scary. Guess not.
The Northview Baptist Church in Westboro, Ohio is doing some damage control after handing out religious tracts to trick or treaters which depicted a hanging and featured another death by police chase, as well as a no nonsense “mean momma.”
Hundreds of the pamphlets were handed out during an event called “beggar’s night” which may present its own ethical dilemmas though of a kinder and gentler sort.
Fans of irony were no doubt amused by a church also called “New Beginnings” handing out pamphlets detailing the untimely demise of three children. After all, God does work in mysterious ways.
