Irish History Forum Discussion:     Ulster's evangelical Christians want to ban Halloween

On October 31st Derry City is transformed into the town of Halloween with fun and excitement for all the family. When the moon is full and the monsters come out, the party never stops.
Here's a sneak peek at the parade finale of one of the worlds biggest and best parties. The City of Derry Halloween Festival and Banks of the Foyle Carnival

Good old Roy Gillespie wants us to boycott Harry Potter.
Ulster's evangelical Christians want to ban Halloween, they claim the 2 day event is disturbing our children.
Evangelical Christianity demands sole responsibility of disturbing children and adults, for each and every of the 365 days of the year.

Independent methodist minister says those taking part in carnival in Derry are 'doing evil'
A Co Derry clergyman has launched a petition to ban Halloween.
Independent Methodist minister the Rev Jonathan Campbell has said that the estimated 30,000 people taking part in the annual Halloween carnival in Derry city are "doing evil."

The parade of mainly children dressed witches, ghouls and ghosts through the centre of Derry is one of the largest public events in the north of Ireland. But Campbell, whose parish is based in Newbuildings, on the outskirts of Derry, has launched an online petition to stop this year's event. He said the celebrations "make evil look innocent", and has called on families to boycott the council-organised festival.

The Halloween festival - a feast derived from the ancient Irish pagan word "Samhain" - takes place on the banks of the river Foyle on 30 and 31 October. But Campbell says Halloween is "one of the two major days for Satanists. God's word clearly condemns and warns people about celebrating or glorifying Halloween or the occult".
"One of the main reasons we as a church are opposed to the carnival is that children are being disturbed.
"People are being deceived - they look on it as harmless fun, but it isn't.
"We are doing this because we care for the people of Derry, and this is harming parents, children, families in Derry."
The two-day festival includes family fun days, magic shows, movies and live music, culminating in a firework display on the river.
Halloween is not the only event associated with children to be denounced by Ulster's evangelical Christians as loaded with Satanic meaning: they have also attacked Harry Potter and his creator JK Rowling.
Ballymena councillor Roy Gillespie denounced the Harry Potter phenomenon as a "dangerous cult", and called for a boycott of the books. When local bookshops threw open their doors at midnight for the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in July 2005, councillor Gillespie urged parents to keep their children indoors because the shops were selling "material unsuited for young minds."
