JesusWeen

From an article in Time entitled: The Latest Christian Halloween Protest: JesusWeen.

Instead of passing out candy, they pass out "mini-bibles".

According to the founder, “All it took was putting a bible into every bag as they opened each bag with a smile,” and believes JesusWeen shall become “the most effective Christian outreach day ever.”


it was “much easier than expected” to trick kids into thinking the Bible was a treat.


Apparently, they remain shameless.

When I was a kid, if someone passed out bibles to my friends and I while trick-or-treating, one of my friends inevitably would have toilet-papered their trees within a week. Especially if they had said "Happy JesusWeen!"

And look, here's the website

"JesusWeen is a non profit organization also known as JesusWin."

Come on, now. This guy must be a real Ned Flanders.

In my humble opinion the size reduction was brought about due to the streamlining of mainstream Christianity's ability to literally 'shove the bible down peoples throat'.


Personally I love bible bashers knocking on my door. I argue the Ancient Astronaut theory with them all morning.

Lol! This is a very small matter, but I believe the term is bible thumpers. I do the same thing but I like to talk about the many similarities to ancient pagan religions. I usually start with asking about the word "Amen", I figure the nuns in catholic school didn't have an answer so these pocket protector platoons won't either. And they don't.

Then I move on to the Council of Nicaea and the Ecumenical Councils. They really do not like hearing that Catholics wrote the bible they use.

I just point to my "No Soliciting" sign and send them on their way. I feel pity for those selling religion door to door. Genuinely. I just can't engage conversation on any level with anybody in that place in their mind and life.

I hate Halloween. I always take Halloween and November 1st off. I spend all day on Halloween hauling out animatronics, coffins, speakers, fog machines, headstones, etc. I usually get everything working just before dark. It looks AWESOME. Then, we scare the hell out of people, and then tear down at the end of the night, tossing everything into the garage.

The next day is spent packing it all back up for the next year. Maybe I'll start passing out bibles. HA!

Bible treats. Jeebus!

Why do fanatics feel the need to try to take the fun out of a great holiday!!

Bible thumpers feel entitled to hijack any and everything they can to force their message on others. In their mind they're helping you poor misguided heathens find the "true" path and therefore it's justified.

I guess the earlier they can trick them into Christianity, the better, huh?

I didn't know Bible bashers went door to door. lol
Any self-professed Christian who claims that advanced technology did not exist in ancient times is just plain wrong.

Haha. This kind of makes me laugh. It's stupid, because you can't force someone to believe in God (completely goes against the whole concept of freely choosing to believe in God which is a huge theme in the Bible) and shows the ignorance of those Bible-thumpers, as well as their inability to see the futility of their entire life's goals, which is to somehow evangelize the entire world with no thought to how the world feels or how God would feel about their actions. So in the end, for all of their 'innovation' and 'cleverness', all they are going to accomplish is to piss people off and make less people want to be Christian, which makes it hilarious to me....

I think the idea has turnabout potential. My neighbors decorate their lawns with tombstones, scarecrows, giant plastic spiders, and so forth. Imagine erecting a little Westboro Baptist Church next to Dracula's castle.

Anti's can hand out their own mini-Bibles, with just the contradictions, atrocities and political outrages that they enjoy so much. Or, they can take a positive approach and give their visitors tiny Origin of Species.

Then they can call the holiday DarWeen.

A new way to ween people off of Jesus.

Brilliant!.......not!

Start up a Non Profit and get a Federal Grant to start handing out mini-Koran's for "Allah-Ween".....


Then laugh at how you're being talked about on websites while you rake in free Federal Grant money.

Way to go.

This is nothing but stripping the cover off a porn mag and sticking bananas in pajamas on there instead and giving it to your kid.

I don't think this needs to be said, but this entire idea is completely stupid and useless.

Besides, I know how I'd feel if I was a kid at Halloween opening the door and getting a Bible instead of a lolly.

The reason this will not work and is not going to be efficiently as evangelism is because 1) it is already a dedicated day set aside for a specific holiday - people will feel cheated or like you are stealing or something 2) if it's so evil then why would you try to copy everything except the good bit (treats)?? and 3) it's just dumb.

I hate halloween anyway.

According to the founder you'd be smiling uncontrollably.

I probably would have returned it or refused to accept it, even as a child.

I guess I am alone here, but I thought this thread was going to be about Ween's album godWEENsatan.
Bummer.
