To the editor:
I read the responses from various clergy and religious leaders in regards to Halloween and religious beliefs. Attention! This now in! There are no goblins, demons or devils, unless the terms are used in a symbolic or metaphoric reference. These terms are fantasy fiction and myths perpetrated over the years either to scare or entertain people. Intelligent and educated people do not believe in such childish fantasy but can still enjoy having fun at this time of the year.
I’m upset some members of the clergy continue to attempt to scare people with this nonsense. Perhaps it is to subjugate the minds of their followers and prevent them from having free thought and maintain order in their flock. It would seem that they would serve a better purpose by devoting their energies to more worthy social issues we confront these days.
