Candy can be bad for the soul?

Okay. I’ve heard some wacky stuff before, but this has to be up near the top. I’ll just let it speak for itself.
“[M]ost of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches,” Daniels [a columnist on the Christian Broadcasting Network website] wrote. “I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.”
Sweet baby gouda. The worst thing I’ve gotten out of Halloween candy is a stomachache. Wait. Maybe that was a demon. Maybe I should have been exorcised. This may explain something.
To be fair, these are only two sentences out of a long column ranting about the pagan roots of Halloween and the threat demons pose to “good Christians”.
