Jack Chick says "no" to Satan's Birthday

To those who are confused by the subject line of this post; join the club.

Jack Chick is the founder of a "Christian" outreach organization that uses tracts, comics, and obnoxious  misrepresentations of reality to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.  His favorite target is Catholics (who doesn't like pick on a Catholic now and then?) but he also doesn't care for Halloween.

That's fair, I can understand not being a fan of Halloween as a Christian.  It's one of those things that we just don't know how to react to.  Do we shun it completely?  Do we go with the flow?  Do we try to tame it down and just let our kids have fun?  Well, the answer is easy at hand with Jack Chick's comic "Boo".  It's sure to scare the living daylights out of your kids so they'll wet their pants every time they even think about Halloween!  After all, everyone knows Halloween is Satan's Birthday (well, actually I thought it was just the night before All Saints Day but then what do I know?)

Check out this article from the First Things blog for more info on the "comics" that some folks think are suitable for children.
